I discovered minimalism while searching for a way to simplify our lives and allow us to refocus our time and efforts on things we love the most. While learning more about how to simplify our home, I also stumbled onto low- and free-waste lifestyles, which presented us opportunities to embrace conservation in our habits and become more aware of how we leave footprints with our everyday activities. I decided to create this blog to chronicle our journey into minimalism and a low-waste lifestyle in a way that I hope encourages others to seek methods for simplifying their lives and having a better impact on the world around them.

If you’re looking for a blog that approaches adulting on a less-serious note, my partner and I also have a blog in which we discuss our struggles with being adults and give life advice for those in similar shoes: A&W’s Not-So-Reliable Guide to Life.
