Simple Living

Thanks to Joshua Becker from Becoming Minimalist for the following references:

Slow Your Home. Brooke McAlary, who has been writing for 18 months, authors a most wonderful blog dedicated to simple living. I find her writing to be intelligent, thoughtful, and encouraging. Her wonderful series on the A-Z’s of simple living keeps me engaged… and definitely looking forward to see what she does with Q, X, and Z.

Cat’s Meow. Vappu is a beautiful artist and photographer. Her writings on minimalism, simplicity, and family are deep, insightful, and calming. And her photos keep you searching for more.

The Minimalistas. Jill Gaupin has created a beautiful virtual space celebrating the minimalist lifestyle. Whether you are already living a simpler, less distracted, less cluttered, more meaningful life or you are just curious, you’ll find inspiration there.

Brooklyn to Mars. Markus shares his story of moving from New York to Chicago, discovering minimalism, and experiencing a fire that furthered his resolve to live with less. Markus is a writer that credits minimalism with helping him eliminate debt, distractions, and dependence on a job.

Midway Simplicity. Mohamed Tohami, a motivational author, speaker, and passionate living expert, once told me, “I noticed one thing in common with all these people living passionate lives, they all used simplicity to facilitate their lifestyle.” Midway Simplicity allows him to explore simplicity, share ideas with others, and experiment in his own life.

Value of Simple. Joel Zaslofsky is not new to the world of blogging, but he has shifted focus recently to further empower people to liberate their time, money, and talent.

Minimalist Baker. John and Dana have created a website that combines each of their passions: cooking, art, design, simplicity. Every recipe consists of 10 ingredients or less, requires a single spoon or bowl, or takes 30 minutes or less to prepare. Many recipes are also vegetarian or vegan friendly. It’s a Pinterest dream come true.

The Simple Year. A simple project by a self-proclaimed pretty normal middle class family who has set out to buy nothing new for one year. They are using their public blog/journal for accountability. And I think a bit more traffic (and encouragement) would help them with their goal.
