One In, One Out?

The ‘one in on out’ concept is something that is often discussed and talked about in the minimalist community. In my early minimalist days, I was attempting to be so strict that I actually followed a ‘one in two out’ policy as a way to try and curb any unnecessary clothing shopping. These days I’m…

Reducing Grocery Costs at the Checkout

First of all, it has been a longgggg time since my last post for which I apologise. Life has been busy! But on that note, life has also been expensive. I feel like my news feed is full of articles about the rising cost of living, namely groceries which I feel like is all people…

Why I don’t Shop at Shein

I have no doubt that many of you are aware of the website I’m talking about. Shein is a online only, fast fashion website that appears to have thousands upon thousands of cheap products for sale. Whilst their number one product is clothing, they also sell a variety of beauty products and homewares. Basically anything…

Luxury Goods

Sometimes I feel…conflicted. I like to live with less, to live a relatively minimalist lifestyle. As I’ve previously discussed, I don’t consider myself to be an extreme minimalist or anything like that (I have a lot of shoes still haha) but I do try to not bring unnecessary things into my home or more to…

The Kitchen Sink

Having completed our bathroom renovation recently, we have now turned our minds towards the kitchen.

When we went through the…

Our Budget Bathroom Renovation

Apparently in Australia, the average bathroom renovation costs upwards of $10,000. I’m talking the entire gut job, replace everything, the works. And that’s a small bathroom.

At Home Beauty Substitutes

Beauty products generally come with a high price tag attached. Moisturisers, cleansers, exfoliators, shaving, waxing, nailpolish. You name it, we, and women in particular spend a lot of money annually on these types of self care and pamper products. I feel like a lot of the expensive products on the shelf can be made at…

Temporary Living Situations

Living with Less We are currently renovating our bathroom (on a budget) which I will write about when it’s been completed – hopefully next week! But in the interim, my husband and I (yes we got married! Definitely more to come on that also) are living with his mother whilst we have no bathroom/toilet of…

Greeting Cards

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, mostly because I’ve been busy getting married!! Super exciting, (but more on that to come). Anyway, I’m due to have some friends over shortly for a catch-up, however the house obviously needed a really good once over. During my clean, I attempted to tidy the cluster of…
