Hey, welcome to Simple on Purpose.

A simple living blog about our family’s attempts towards minimalism. Here I am sharing with you our family’s awkward descent off that mountain of more, more, more and into less. Less stuff, less stress, less distraction.

First let me say, this is not a how-to guide. Unless that guide is in book form with the inside pages cut out to conceal a nice little flask in there. Then maybe. (That one is for you Rae).

Rather, this is a place for real talk, sarcasm, and lots of questions that me and my family are asking as we approach living simpler and more purposefully. Questions like….

Why do we have 43 forks?

How many months will it take me to cancel my ipsy subscription? (spoiler alert, at least four months, we’re still tallying)

Why do we have all these things in our house that we don’t really love or use? What happens if we get rid of them? What happens we kinda suck at getting rid of them?

What if we don’t buy birthday presents any more, but buy birthday experiences?

What are our goals and dreams as a family? As a couple? As an individual?

Can a wife ever convince a husband he needs no more than five fishing rods? (the answer is no…..just…..no)

How many Pinfails can one woman have before her Pinterest account is revoked?

What is a capsule wardrobe and why should I try one?

Can I convince my family we NEED matching track suits to take up running together? Related: Is it even physically possible for me to run 5k?….maybe in matching track suits it is!

I’m so glad you stopped by. I’d love to hear from you on ways you and your family are seeking simple, purposeful living.
