2018 has been stuffed full of changes, emotions, and self-discovery. I mean, there’s nothing more exciting than knowing I’m not the same person I was at the beginning of the year; I’ve seen the good, bad, and ugly this year and I am happy to say I’m on the other side of the bad and ugly for now. I have not exactly been a role model when it comes to simple living.
This is probably my third or fourth attempt at being a frugal minimalist, but what can I say, I was raised on shopping trips with my mom and grandma. I started this adventure a couple years ago when I moved into my third apartment and after I had dated minimalist traveler for a few months, and after surviving on everything I carried in my backpack for a week while I hiked through the mountains, I was intrigued by the idea of simple living.
