The Good Trade is a leading resource and community for sustainability, slow living, and self-love. It includes posts on sustainable fashion and lifestyle and offers a newsletter called ‘The Daily Good” that features inspirational quotes, recommendations, and reviews.

The Minimalists


 The Minimalists, Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus help over 20 million people live meaningful lives with less through their website, books, podcast, and Netflix films.  Lots of resources and links including a 21-day journey into minimalism

Minimalists don’t focus on having less, less, less. We focus on making room for more: more time, more peace, more creativity, more experiences, more contribution, more contentment, more freedom. Clearing the clutter frees up the space.

Zen Habits with Leo Babauta


Zen Habits is about finding simplicity and mindfulness in the daily chaos of our lives. It’s about clearing the clutter so we can focus on what’s important, create something amazing, find happiness.

Zen Habits features articles on simplicity, health & fitness, motivation and inspiration, frugality, family life, happiness, goals, getting great things done, and living in the moment.

No Sidebar


Every day, more stuff comes into our lives: stuff in our home, stuff on our calendar, and stuff cluttering our minds. All that stuff gets in the way of where we really want to go and who we really want to be … it’s time to make a change.

It’s time to get rid of the excess and focus on the essentials.

It’s time for the clarity and peace of mind that come from paring down. It’s time for the freedom and confidence that come from making your own best choices. It’s time to design a simple life.

Becoming Minimalist


Josuha Becker offers a blog (with frequent guest posters), bestselling books about reducing and keeping down the clutter, and weekly videos on YouTube.

Most importantly, Becoming Minimalist is designed to inspire others to pursue their greatest passions by owning fewer possessions.

Reduce Reuse Renew


I’m a self-described anxious eco-minimalist mom, and I know I’m not alone. Reduce, Reuse, Renew is a lifestyle blog that aims to meet you where you’re at in terms of a minimalist and low waste lifestyle. I help women navigate the roadblocks that can come up along the way.

LAURA posts about mindfulness, minimalism, anxiety and zero -waste lifestyle.

Fairy Positive


Fairy Positive is a new blog that I am really enjoying for uplifting blogs and tips.  Laura Orsini is an author, artist, podcaster, social alchemist, thought leader, and change agent who has written three books on gratitude.  She is currently blogging on her series, The ABCs of Positivity.  Each one is illustrated with a delightful original collage.
