We Live Simply is about one goal:

“live simply so that others may simply live”
-Mahatma Gandhi

I’m not hoping to turn you into monks or make you join a commune somewhere but I believe that living a simple life will not only give you the time, energy and finances to do what you’re really passionate about — but also give you the opportunity to give more of yourself away to those around you.

I believe that by choosing to live a more simple life, we not only care for our planet, but also our neighbors around the world.

Each decision and each purchase we make can have a lasting impact on the world around us.

Whether it’s cutting back on consumption, buying FairTrade, or starting a garden, I hope that the ideas you find within this site help you to live simply — both as a benefit to you and your neighbors around the world.

In no way do I claim to be an expert in living simply. I’m just a pilgrim on this journey like everyone else.

And so while I plan to share my own tips and pointers along the way — I also want to share the stories of those who are on this journey with me — including your own stories.

So I invite you to join me in the adventure by participation either in the comments or with guest posts.

Feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions or submissions.

Thanks for reading!
