How To Live A Simplified Life ~ A Podcast with Mom

Podcast interview w momprepares origional

 I am so excited to be sharing with you the podcast interview I did with Jendi from Mom this past week.  We talked about a lot of different things centered around leading a simplified life: What a simplified life means for our family, how we decide what comes and goes, what it takes to maintain a simple life and ultimately what matters to us in this life.

I also share some practical ways to simplify your own space – from going paperless in the office to selling items online and locally to make a profit for your family.

We also touched on how we can be prepared for emergencies and still lead a simple life.  It truly does not need to be one over the other. 

At the end of the day it’s about leading a simpler life that focuses on quality experiences instead of more stuff, fuller schedules and bigger houses.

Listen to the Podcast Right Now and then stop by and leave your thoughts.

However, it doesn’t make it easier to lead a simplified life.  I know plenty of homesteaders who’s life is anything but simple.  Read more
