Welcome!

A warm welcome

Welcome to my online community!  I’m so happy that you’ve joined us.

This blog began as a way of reflecting on my journey towards minimalism and simple living. It started life as MidlandsMinimalist.com.

Since then, it has grown to reach a community of like-minded people all around the world, with over 1000 followers.

Now that you’ve signed up, you’ll receive news and unique content that won’t be available via the blog.

The blog

The blog covers a number of topics including:

  • Decluttering and how a life with less can really mean a life lived better
  • The minimalist kitchen
  • Simple wardrobe
  • Digital detox
  • Wellbeing
  • Budgeting

Some highlights

In November 2016, I carried out a month-long experiment to discover what value, fulfilment and satisfaction the items we buy really bring to our lives. I called this my Life Energy Experiment.

In January 2017, my Unclutter 2017 series began, bringing together top tips and different approaches to help you make lasting changes in your life.

If you’re interested in personal finance, check out my #FrugalFebruary series and dip into some of the posts from early 2018, which feature tips and ideas around budgeting and money management.
