It’s that time again. The time of year when you have no idea what to get the minimalist in your life. I’ve done a lot of holiday gift challenges in the past. I’ve tried spending just $100 on gifts. I’ve tried handmaking everything. I’ve lost my damn mind. Just kidding. Kind of.
But my gift challenges were to create or purchase gifts for other people. Most people in my life are not minimalists and that’s OK. And I have a lot of lovely people in my life who want to get me a gift in exchange. I know as a minimalist I can be hard to shop for. I don’t like a lot of stuff. And I’m very particular about what “stuff” I bring into my life. Here’s some gift ideas for the minimalists you know and love. Continue reading
Thank you to anyone and everyone who has purchased my ebook, “The Ultimate Guide to Living Full Time in an RV, Airstream or Motorhome.” I feel so #blessed.
If you’ve been waiting to order my ebook, today is the day! It’s Giving Tuesday and I will be giving all profits today to the Standing Rock Sioux tribe as they continue to fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. As someone who lives in a tiny house, I know that my everyday actions have a direct impact on the environment. As a member of the Isleta Pueblo, I also know the plight of American Indian people.
Many homes on reservations do not not have access to clean water or basic sanitation. And contamination to water used by American Indian tribes is nothing new. In 2015, mining pollution contaminated water in the San Juan River used by the Navajo. The DAPL threatens the tribe’s only water supply. The DAPL has already destroyed Native sacred places and may destroy more sites. All profits today will be given directly to the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. You can purchase my book or a lapel pin here. If you simply want to give to Standing Rock, visit http://standwithstandingrock.net/.
I appreciate each and every one of you.

If you can’t guess from the photo, the key to saving a significant amount of money for us was to live small in an Airstream travel trailer. If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, our money saving journey is no surprise, but I don’t think I’ve ever shared the amount until now. Continue reading
If I’m being honest, I’ve been pretty bummed out lately. I’ve been feeling like my country isn’t the place I thought it was. I’m not going to get too political. I try to make a real effort to keep it light, but it’s been difficult for me to keep calm and carry on, as they say. This morning I was looking for something to console me and I came across this quote by Maxine Hong Kingston: “In a time of destruction, create something.” Continue reading
This is the time of year where I really start thinking about saving money and not losing my mind during the holidays. In the past I’ve done a No-Spend November, a Handmade Holiday Challenge and a $100 Holiday Challenge. This year I’ve been busier than ever and I really need an easy challenge to kick my butt into high gear. Enter the easy, no-budget 30 days of saving challenge to the rescue! Each day, I’ll tackle one thing off the list. If you want to play along too, know that you don’t have to do the list in order, but you do have to do #1 first. I’ve also included a printable at the end of this post to print out and stick to your fridge, so you can cross stuff out as you go. Here’s the deets: Continue reading
It’s been forever since I’ve done a Link Love post, but for good reason. First and foremost, I’ve been trying to create more than I consume. And I’ve been creating an awful lot. I’ll share more on that soon. But this week I had a cold and the best thing to cure a cold is a whole lotta web surfing. Here’s some stuff that’s been peaking my interest. Continue reading
