    Traveling with Less: Applying Minimalism to how you Pack and Travel with Rachelle Crawford

    When I heard Rachelle Crawford of Abundant Life with Less talk about how she travels with carry-ons only anytime she does air travel, even with a family of five, I knew I had to have her on the show to break this down a bit for us!
    Rachelle has been applying minimalism to travel since right after she made minimalism a part of her home, and she brings so many great tips and mindset ships for us on this episode to do the same. Listen in and enjoy your travels this summer with less stuff and more peace!

    Should I keep or declutter the baby and kid stuff as my family grows out of it? Why I don't regret getting rid of so much baby stuff.

    Should I keep or declutter the baby and kid stuff as my family grows out of it? Why I don't regret getting rid of so much baby stuff.

    A question I've gotten lately as we've recently added to the family? "Do you regret getting rid of so much baby stuff?" or "What should I do with the baby/ kid stuff when I'm not sure when or if we will use it again?"
    Today, I'm approaching this question and sharing my why for getting rid of baby stuff a couple of years ago, and why we don't regret it. I'm also sharing some questions to help you make your own decision on this along with some roadblocks that you might have to overcome along the way!

Love it!

I love all this! Especially because she doesn’t shame or guilt you because motherhood is not linear. Nice voice to listen to also

Packing less / everyone has a backpack

First episode I listened too and I am hooked with this podcast on seriously making my life better!

Less is best ❤️packing only what you need and you don’t need 2 outfits for everyday.

Just tried this method for 3 days / 2nights hotel/boating 4th of July weekend.

Amazing never going back to anything more than a backpack!!

A must listen to!

This is by far my favorite podcast to listen to. I am so happy you chose to go back to the minimalish title as well! The majority of society cannot be complete minimalists anyway so this is such an encouraging way to make this type of thinking seem possible. I love how you bring in different guests to cover a wide range of topics to simplify life. Thank you for all of your content! I truly enjoy all of your episodes. Keep it up!
