About Me


My name is Alissa and I am a wife, mother, artist and so on.  I love talking about simplicity, especially when it inspires someone (including myself) to make a positive change for themselves.  You could say I have a passion for the topic.  I often read books and blogs written by others pursuing voluntary simplicity, because the motivation I receive from them is vital to my own journey.  I love the freedom that comes from downsizing, which means tossing what doesn’t work for me and embracing what does.  I love a good challenge.  I am imperfect.  I break my own guidelines once in a while.  I am not in competition with you or anyone else.  My house gets cluttered at times.  That said, the more I work at minimizing the unnecessary, the more freedom I gain and that feels wonderful!
