I started thinking about minimalism a lot more intensely earlier this year when I was reading an account of Joshua Fields Millburn’s journey to a more simple life in his upcoming book, Everything that Remains.
There are so many things to say about the subject. We’ve been on our own little journey for two years or so now, and it’s definitely interesting with kids 🙂 One thing is sure, everyone could use a little simplifying.
We’re going to be sharing a lot more about minimalism and a minimalist lifestyle in the coming months. For now, here are 5 amazing sites to help you get started toward a simpler life:
Joshua and Ryan were both very successful in the corporate world in their 20s. They were fortunate to discover at a fairly young age, however, before they’d chased happiness for decades, that they had gone down the wrong path.

Loving Simple Living
The Lippincotts are a family after our own heart. We live somewhat parallel lives in many ways in addition to a love of minimalism – a marriage of 2 first-borns, red hair, photographer husband, homeschooling, small living space, travel, a boy and a girl 3 years apart 🙂 I’m excited to get to know them better.
Joshua Becker’s journey of minimalism began one day when he was cleaning his garage and realized that all his stuff was taking away from time with his family. Joshua’s exploration of minimalism along with his family has now impacted thousands of people through books, speaking, and interviews. I really appreciate his balanced perspective.
