Featured Blog — Be More With Less

Found this fabulous minimalist lady last week and she gave me permission to feature her this week.  She authors the site Be More With Less where she has great minimalist and simple living advice.

She has lots of great articles but I wanted to share How to Make Decluttering Fun — favorite quote from the article ” Turn on some music, do a little dance and box that crap up.” (made me smile)

Here is what she writes on her about page:

Be more with less is a blog about simplifying your life and really living. Here, you can learn how to create a life with more savings and less no debt, more health and less stress, more time and less stuff, and more joy with less obligation

You will find tips and ideas to simplify your life and learn to live with less to enjoy more and be more. You can read this for more details about the topics I’ll write about and visit this page to see interviews with me, guest posts and other media coverage.

You might be wondering why I am the right person to cover this subject. The #1 reason is that I have made all the mistakes. I have made a bunch of money and spent even more. I have been too busy, too tired, too full, too stressed and too overworked for too long and I am changing my ways.

My name is Courtney Carver and I am a 41 year old, aspiring minimalist. I am (so happily) married, and mom to a teenage daughter, and I am making big (and small) changes to live my life on purpose. I am a writer and photographer. I love yoga, creating simple meals and hiking and skiing in the Mountainwest. I also love to travel and have my sights on a future in Mexico, living simply, on the beach.

In 2006 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. While this disease does not define me, it has had a huge impact on my life. I created a website to help fund MS research and other good causes. One Million for Goodsupports the causes you care about through the sales of limited edition fine art photography.

If you think simplifying improves your life, imagine what it can do for your business. Let me know how I can help you do business on purpose.

Here is a link to her book ‘Simple Ways to be More with Less’ and ‘Living in the Land of Enough’

Hope you enjoy her writings as much as I do!  Have a great week!

    thanks for sharing her site! i loved this:

    When you start to live with less, you crave even less stuff, because you get a glimpse of what life really has to offer. When you turn your focus to joy, love, happiness, gratitude and other warm & fuzzy emotions and away from acquisition, competition and hoarding, your heart will soften and you’ll be free to dream about and experience the very best.

    and this:

    I’m afraid people will think I am weird or ungrateful because I keep giving things way. Some people will think that. Some people thought you were weird before. It’s not your job to please everyone. : )

    • Yes!

      • Thanks so much for your work :) And for coming by my site. Have a great week!
