Good podcast? Give it some love!
Let's face it...life can be pretty hectic. All the stresses of trying to balance careers, family life, and relationships can be pretty overwhelming. With so much going on, how is simple living even possible? How can you live a simple life when you're surrounded by all the trappings of the 21st century society? Are you intrigued by minimalism but don't think minimalism is for you? Join Dan and Vanessa Hayes on their journey toward a simple life in the modern world. Listen as they share how they simplify day to day tasks, organize their lives, edit their possessions and evaluate their priorities. Maybe you'll discover for yourself what really matters most in your life. If nothing else you'll get a laugh or two as they share their experiences, offer some simplifying tactics, simplicity strategies, and talk with others who are also on the road to a simple life together. Sure, they talk about minimalism and the magic of tidying up too, but this is simple living and essentialism for daily life!

SLT079: Part 2 of Still Simplifying After All These Years
Designing the life you were meant to live is not only possible, it’s is something you can take control of yourself and MAKE it happen. A great place to start is by making the commitment to simplify your life. As I said in the last episode, simplifying your life is one of the most impactful things you can do. As we bring Simple Life Together to a close, we wanted to offer a little update on where our simplicity journey has taken us over the last three years. This is Part 2 of that update. Do yourself a favor and listen to Episode 78 first 😉 This is what will most likely be our final update episode, so if this is your first time listening in, I’d suggest you go back to around Episode 65: Strategic Simple Living to make sure this episode and Episode 78: Still Simplifying After All These Years Part 1 make sense. Of course if you want in on ALL the goodness, just start at Episode 1! It’ll be worth it, guaranteed! Thank you all so much for listening in!

SLT077: Simple Answers to Listener Questions
It’s been a while since our last episode and many of you said you wanted an update. So, we posted on the Simple Life Together Facebook page and the Edit & Forget It Facebook Group and asked for your questions. Since we’re in the thick of the Holiday season, many of you had holiday simplicity related questions. Others were looking for lifestyle answers for their questions, and many just wanted to know what we’ve been up to. Well…we sat down for over an hour last night and just kinda “freestyled” it. Read More… Topic: Simple Answers to Listener Questions Update on Vanessa’s S.I.M.P.L.E. Organizing System Course Vanessa launched her S.I.M.P.L.E. Organizing System course to a small list of people and it went really well! That said, we’re not really happy with how the course is currently hosted on an external site. The content is proven and system works, but we’re just not happy with any platforms we’ve tried. They’re too expensive and seem clunky. So we’re considering just making the course an “in your Inbox” course, so people don’t have to log into an outside website, remember another log in, hope the site isn’t slow, etc. People are comfortable in their Inbox. They go there every day. And it would lower the cost of the course dramatically. So I’m working hard on that, to bring Vanessa’s amazing system to more people in a simpler way. If you want to be in the loop with Vanessa’s course, the S.I.M.P.L.E. Organizing System, you can sign up for updates at GetOrganizedSOS.com and you’ll be the first to know when things are ready to go!
