Welcome to Intentionally Simple! I’ve been dreaming of this site for the past 6 months or so.
At the beginning of 2012, I started thinking more about my writing and the topics I was passionate about. My website at the time, Frugal & Simple, did not seem to be fitting into my vision, mainly the word frugal.
We still consider ourselves to be frugal but that word can mean so many different things. Our frugality is purchasing less but higher quality whereas most people view frugality as more for less.
I wanted to write more about living minimally and green as well as share more about parenting and our financial philosophy. I felt limited by the name Frugal & Simple.
After attending a conference back in March, I was inspired to finally take a risk and start over. During our drive home late that night, Intentionally Simple was born. It’s a little scary to be leaving the comfort of my former site and starting over from scratch but it’s also exciting, I feel like I have more direction now!
We’ve been working hard these past few weeks on this new site! We’ve moved some posts written on Frugal & Simple in 2012 here to Intentionally Simple because they’re posts written while I was dreaming up this site and they fit in with the theme of choosing to live an intentionally simple life.
Intentionally Simple describes our lifestyle. We want to live simply. We are choosing to live green, minimal and debt free while raising a family and living in a small home!
