I was born in the beautiful Caribbean island of Grenada. Life back home was simple and carefree.
Then I immigrated to the US.
It was not too long after that my life gradually became complicated with possessions, credit cards, mortgages, student loans, car notes, utility bills, and toxic relationships.
It turns out that the American dream, for me, carried with it a lot of extra baggage.
In 2013 my family and I relocated to Denver, Colorado. We were excited to move into our new home! But while unloading the moving truck I had a horrifying thought, “How was all of our stuff going to fit in our new townhouse?”
My wife and I did our best in our much smaller living space. But the arranging and rearranging we kept having to do to in our crowded basement turned into a weekly chore. It was tiring. Then came my epiphany, “Instead of constantly reorganizing, why not just minimize?”
What’s the goal
- Focus on the things that matters most (family, health, relationships, etc)
- Learn the art of simple living
- Connect with like-minded individuals
