Minimalism with a family seems idealistic, at best.


Especially if you’re looking around your house with kids running all around.

But the idea of living a bit simpler also sounds freeing.

Is it possible to live with less clutter and less to do when you have a family? Or is it only possible to live this way if you live in a modern city apartment by yourself.

I asked myself these questions when I first started to feel overwhelmed with all the stuff that entered my life when I had kids. I thought there must be a simpler way to live, but wasn’t sure it could happen until I was done raising my family.

On this episode of The Simple Home Podcast, I talked to Rachelle Crawford. Rachelle Crawford is the author of the Abundant Life With Less blog. There she makes minimalism doable by sharing inspiration and practical strategies to help you pursue and abundant life without an abundance of stuff. She has such an honest approach to Minimalism and what it really looks like with a family.
