The Minimalista Edit is a newsletter designed to help you clear physical and mental clutter so you can create more space for the stuff that matters. It is completely paywall free and available to all. Here’s why.

I'm an author, organizing expert, and minimalist mom of two, based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I live in a 1200 square foot, 100-year old bungalow with my husband, two daughters, and our Australian Shepherd, Patches.

My bestselling book, Minimalista, breaks down how to edit, organize, and style your home to support the life you want. My new book, Organized Living, shares inspiration and insider tips from 25 organizing experts from across the globe.

I’ve spent the past 15 years helping thousands of people around the world edit their homes and organize their lives. Now I’m sharing everything I’ve learned through books, courses, workshops, and this newsletter.

Come and join over 27,000 readers from all over the world.

There is a whole lot of noise out there. My goal is to provide you with bite-sized, actionable tips, strategies, resources, and inspiration to help simplify and improve your life. All killer no filler.

I create content about a range of subjects including heavy stuff like grief, loss, and what to keep when someone dies, and lighter topics like capsule wardrobes, minimalist packing, small space living, style, sustainability, and personal development.

I’ll only present you with things that are practical and actually achievable - even if you’re busy and overwhelmed. Experience has shown me that small, smart action compounds over time to create massive impact and transformation. Little by little adds up to a lot.

I practice a philosophy of minimalism that promotes sustainability and confronts excess, not one that deprives you of the things you actually enjoy.

Within 48-hours of launching, The Minimalista Edit became a Substack bestseller and was selected as a Substack featured publication. When you sign up you’ll be joining a community of like minded people who want to do more with less. This is a place to find inspiration, encouragement, and support.

As part of my mission to help as many people as possible, The Minimalista Edit is now paywall-free and available to everyone, hooray!

All subscribers will also get a FREE starter kit plus access to exclusive content like my annual Declutter Your Life Challenge.
