    How Much Do Vegans Spend on Food Each Month?

    How Much Do Vegans Spend on Food Each Month?

    In this episode, we break down the misconceptions and truths about how much vegans spend on food. More specifically, we share exactly how we spent on food in the last 30 days as a little case study. Being the start of a new year, we also touch on Veganuary and how you can get involved. 

    If you've always wondered how much vegans spend on food and have thought that it's only a lifestyle for the "privileged", this conversation will help broaden your perspective and see how food, vegan or not, can be cheap or expensive.

    Do We Have The Strength To Accept Opposing Views?

    Do We Have The Strength To Accept Opposing Views?

    Veganism is one thing, and 2020 is something entirely different. But one theme that overlaps is the challenge of accepting other people’s perspectives. This at least has been hard for us, and we want to use our experiences of being vegan in a non-vegan world to help us connect and love others who fundamentally disagree with us, and vice versa.

    Specifically, we discuss:

    ~ The deep desire to feel accepted
    ~ The trap of the vegan bubble and confirmation bias in general
    ~ How being vegan naturally creates conflict and division
    ~ How we plan to accept others while disagreeing with them

    Are You Letting Your Things Have Power Over You?

    Are You Letting Your Things Have Power Over You?

    Even as minimalist’s, we can admit, splurging on nice things can be exciting. We sometimes get a temporary high from a purchase, especially if it gives us “joy”. But with such a feeling, we risk giving all the power to our possessions and take power away from who we are as individuals.

    So how do we toe the line between enjoying a purchase, seeing the value in what we have while simultaneously detaching ourselves from our things?

    That’s what we discuss in this episode. We share our internal struggles of finding happiness in things while trying to keep perspective about what ultimately matters.

    The Grind of Creating Content For a Living

    The Grind of Creating Content For a Living

    Creating content, while at times glamorous, can be incredibly labour-intensive. The constant cycle of ideation, planning, editing, publishing and sharing can take a toll, and before you know it, you burnout.

    We’ve been creating for a living for a few years now, and we have lots of experiences to share about crafting a life that’s personalised and empowering.

    In this conversation, we discuss how we’ve built a content creation practice that’s built with longevity in mind.

    What Is Slow Purchasing? (And When To Use It)

    What Is Slow Purchasing? (And When To Use It)

    We live in a world where it’s never been easier to buy things. Between Amazon, the extinction of cash and excessive supply, there’s no resistance or friction to purchase what we want when we want.

    Sure, it can be exciting to grab something impulsively, but that approach leaves you more vulnerable to buyers remorse or a wasted purchase altogether.

    Minimalist or not, at some point you’re going to need to buy something. In this conversation, we break down our approach to slow purchasing, and spoiler alert, it’s not always ideal.

Splashes of colour

Loved your episode on Aethetics, I love colour in my home. There shouldn’t be a “cookie cutter” description of what a minimalist home should be, minimalism is a lifestyle and about the choices we make everyday 🌱
