Eliza Cross | Happy Simple Living blogWelcome

Hi, I’m Eliza Cross and I’m glad you’re here. I love exploring how less stuff, spending, and stress can equal more peace and more time for the things that matter.

Since 2006, the Happy Simple Living blog has followed our family’s efforts to live more simply, get organized, save money, enjoy good food together, make sustainable choices, garden organically, eliminate debt, and most importantly — laugh and have more fun.

This is also the home of the annual January Money Diet, a month-long spending break you can do any time.

How About You?

Do you long to simplify? Perhaps you yearn for financial freedom, getting back to basics, or having more unstructured time to create, recharge your batteries, and relax.

One afternoon I got quiet and jotted down my simple living priorities and goals. Perhaps you’d like to try this exercise, too.

Our path to happy simple living is a work in progress, and I invite you to join us in the journey. Along the way, I hope you’ll share your comments, ideas and revelations about living simply and practicing the art of less.

P.S. I’d love to connect with you on Instagram, FacebookPinterestTwitter, and Google+.
