Today I open up a new “tab” for Smallish, so to speak. This post shares why we chose to homeschool our children, at least for now. We have home schooled for three years, and this year we have hit a good groove. My kids are the ages of a kindergartner and a first grader, as

I’m grateful to share a guest post by Krista O’Reilly-Davi-Digui, creator of A Life In Progress. Krista was kind enough to share our story on her blog, and I’m excited to reciprocate.

Stuff is tricky. It sneaks into your home and car and (cough) Amazon cart seemingly undetected. Then before you know it, you’re the not-so-proud owner of a pile of junk which you know you probably don’t need. Yet now that you own it you value it (hello, Endowment Effect!). When dealing with a topic as difficult as

I’m so excited to share a follow-up post by my mother-in-law. Jane is qualified to teach “How to Downsize 101” because she and her her husband George recently walked through their own strategic downsize (read the beginning of their story here).  You’re going to appreciate this mix of personal story and practical advice… ___________________ I

At first glance the concepts of minimalism and abundance seem opposite. Contradictory. Mutually exclusive. A discussion about an olive tree revealed to me how abundance and minimalism are actually connected—partners, even—in the forming of a truly meaningful life.
