    Are you a member of Costco or Sam’s Club? Wholesale retail stores such as this are able to sell their products for much cheaper than local businesses; however, the question I pose to you and my guest today, Carly Adams, is: is bulk shopping anti-minimalist? There is a certain affordability when it comes to big chains; however, big-box retail stores also promote consumerism due to the sheer volume of products for sale. As we work through this topic, I’m sure you’ll build your own pros and cons list to see whether it’s the right choice for your family.

    “There’s no way you can be intentional with just your wardrobe or your home. Once you see and experience how good your home and closet feel, you want every area of your life to feel that way.” I wholeheartedly agree this statement from author, Christine Platt (also known in the minimalist community as The Afrominimalist). Christine is my guest today and we’ll discuss her upcoming book, 'authenticity over aesthetics' and how less is liberating in our lives.

    Do you feel like you need to write in every line of your child’s baby book? Are there days when the camera doesn’t leave your hand? Or do you intentionally keep it tucked away on some family outings? As with most things in life, it’s all about balance, right? Join me and fellow podcast host & photographer, Jenna Arvidson as we talk through the idea of over-documenting our days. We discuss what made Jenna begin to think about over-documentation, how to decide what to document and what not to, easy shifts to simplify this area, and more.

    Today’s episode is all about small spaces: How minimalism makes living in a small space easier, but also sometimes forces minimalism upon us (in the best way possible!) Practical advice about being a minimalist mom in a small space - where to start? We’ll also cover ways to “live small” in your existing space. Joining me to discuss these topics is author, Laura Fenton. Laura is the author of The Little Book of Living Small: a comprehensive guide to small-space secrets and real-life solutions for living in 1,200 square feet or less. She writes about home design and sustainability, and is a regular contributor to Apartment Therapy.
