54: Coming to Terms With Your Stuff

8/11/2020
I sometimes catch myself thinking “how do I have so much stuff?”. And that’s after five years of (more or less) active decluttering, selling and intentional purchasing. Not to mention, a *one-year shopping ban* ( https://www.tinyambitions.com/category/shopping-ban/ ). Partly as a reminder for myself, but also in the hope that it will help you on your minimalist journey, let’s have a chat about how to come to terms with your stuff.

53: Make Sure Your Minimalism Means Something

6/23/2020
Minimalism is a pretty out-of-touch movement at the best of times, so my normal writing repertoire just hasn’t felt right since the incredible explosion of Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality in the wake of the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. No matter how uncomfortable it is to admit, I am a very privileged white woman. Like a lot of people out there, I am now coming to terms with the fact that my “not racist” ness is not enough. I need to do more to be actively...

52: Now is the Time to Use what You Have

5/19/2020
As an unintended consequence of spending more time at home, I'm trying to use up what I have. From personal care products to repurposing clothes, I'm getting thrifty and crafty because of the global pandemic.

4/29/2019
I'm talking to Penny from She Picks Up Pennies this week all about the minimalism movement, why Penny doesn't call herself a minimalist and why decluttering really does take a community. Penny, from the fantastic blog, She Picks Up Pennies blogs about everything from minimalism to personal finance, and everything in-between. https://shepicksuppennies.com/ I'd love to know how you feel about minimalism as a label - do you call yourself a minimalist? Where are you on your decluttering journey?...

On this week's first-ever interview Tiny Bite, I'm thrilled to share that I'm talking to Michelle Summerfield, fellow blogger and Canadian behind *The Simple Classy Life Blog* ( https://www.theclassysimplelife.com/ ). We're talking all about self-care which is something that Michelle has written about at length on her blog. I think that self-care is having a bit of a moment right now, which is both a good and bad thing. It's great that people are wanting to learn how they can take better...

4/1/2019
Is KonMari the complete opposite of minimalism? Or the other side of the same coin? In episode 43, I'm talking about the decluttering method/lifestyle brand taking the world by storm - KonMari. In case you don't have Netflix, or Twitter, Marie Kondo has a new show on Netflix - and people have *all the feelings* ( https://medium.com/@KeatonPatti/the-foreword-from-marie-kondos-new-book-the-decluttered-life-e074852717b7 ) about it.

12/4/2018
Minimalist gift giving - does such a thing exist? I'm sharing how I approach the holiday season as a minimalist and “slow living” enthusiast.

38: Falling into a Fall Funk (and why it's maybe not a bad thing)

11/8/2018
Apologies for the tardiness of this episode! I mulled over several topics earlier this week that I wanted to discuss for Tiny Bites, but none of them felt right. Which, incidentally, is how I finally decided on this week’s topic. When I started to think about why nothing felt right for this week’s episode, I realized it was because I’d fallen into my bi-annual seasonal funk. That funk is the lovely time of year when the seasons change and your body gets thrown all out of whack....

37: What To Do When You Hit A Decluttering Roadblock

10/16/2018
As promised in the last episode of Tiny Bites, this week’s episode is another listener request. When I put out my call for topics, fellow blogger and friend Penny from She Picks Up Pennies, asked if I would talk about the next steps in the decluttering process, for people who are deep in the middle of it and can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel (my words, not Penny’s). When Penny suggested this topic, my wheels immediately started turning because I’ve been out of that place for a...

As you can probably guess by the title of this episode, it was International Podcast Day today!
