Today I'm talking about one of my favorite topics when it comes to minimalism: Contentment. I love talking about how we can be more grateful and content with what is right in front of us. We discuss three ways we can take small but impactful action to get more content with our homes. Of course, these all apply to other areas of our lives as well. I hope you enjoy this episode, and I hope you feel a little more content after listening.

I've been thinking about how minimalism and decluttering can sometimes feel like a surface-level, irrelevant topic in the midst of scary headlines and difficult things that may be going on in our world and our individual lives. I thought a little deeper and realized that minimalism and decluttering can be relevant because it can prompt us to change so much more than just our stuff and our homes. So why is it that minimalism can be so life changing? How does it trickle down from just our stuff into every area of our lives? Today I'm discussing this and sharing a little bit of my own story along with it. I hope this episode encourages you to keep going in whatever place you're at in your journey.

Today my guest, Noell Jett, tells us the story of how she and her family built their own dream home with no experience, and encourages us that we are capable of home renovations, or even building a home, too.

Today I'm coming to you with a solo episode about how we can begin to change our shopping habits. It's so easy to find immediate gratification through shopping in our modern world. We can get an impulse idea to search for something online that we think sounds nice, click a few buttons, and end up with something new and shiny on our doorstep a few days later. So how do we change our shopping habits if this has been a struggle for us? I'm bringing you tips that include challenges to try and simple tips you can use in the moment when you find yourself filling up an online or in person shopping cart. I hope something in this episode helps you get a little closer to aligning your shopping habits with your values!

Warning: As with many holiday episodes, we are talking about gifts, the emphasis of gifts, and gifts under the tree. If this might be something you don't want your kids to hear, you may want to listen with earbuds in! :) Today's episode is full of ideas to make the holidays fun and special for our kids, but also intentional and enjoyable for the entire family. My guest, Tasheena Ticer of The Cinnamon Mom, brings us a look into her family's traditions and how she celebrates the holidays intentionally, making sure to bring both fun and meaning to the holiday season for her kids. Tasheena shares plenty of practical ideas that we can take and use this holiday season, but she also brings us some important reminders to be realistic about our own energy this holiday season, because the holidays aren't just for our kids. I know you'll take away many fun ideas from our conversation, but also sense of relief that we don't have to do it all, and we can make the holidays special with low pressure and a low budget.

We are getting Hygge again on the show because it has been one of the most popular topics recently on minimal-ish, and I personally wanted to learn even more. This time, I went straight to the source: Denmark. I started following Diane in Denmark on her Youtube channel a while back, and I knew she was the perfect one to teach us how to Hygge our way through the winter and holiday season. We talk about several different ways to get through a long winter and to celebrate the season by actually planning Hygge into our days.

How are you feeling about gifts this holiday season? Whether you're all about simplifying your gift giving (and receiving) for your family, or you just want to get more intentional and planned out, today's episode is for you! Gift giving and receiving can feel a little sticky when minimal-ish living is one of our values. The holiday season can be full of stress- stress on our budget, stress on our time, all because of the stuff. So, how do we realign the way we do gifts this holiday season with our values? Let's reflect, work on some mindset shifts together, talk about how we can talk to others about this all, and make a plan. Listen in!

Today I'm bringing you part two of this series of what I've learned while decluttering with my daughter. I'm bringing you my process and what has made decluttering easier with my 5 year old as I've handed over the reigns of deciding what stuff to let go of and given her most of that choice. I also briefly talk about decluttering toddler things as well.
