The goal of a minimalist Christmas is to keep the meaning of the holidays without sacrificing your sanity, your finances, or your priorities.

This guide covers the topics of gift giving, minimalist decorating, simple family traditions, and more. It won’t tell you to just quit spending money and stop giving gifts to people. It will challenge you to rethink things and go into this holiday season with renewed focus.


family-sized-minimalism Family-Sized Minimalism

This is the book I was looking for when I was tired of living in chaos and clutter. Blogs and books about minimalism have popped up all over the place lately, but they don’t typically address families. Family-Sized Minimalism is the missing piece you’ve been looking for. This was my first book I wrote.

The pages of this book will share both my story and the stories of several other minimalist families. Whether you’ve been living a minimalist lifestyle for awhile now, or you’re just curious what it means and if it could really work for your family, this book has a message for you.
