Hi! I'm Lindsay.

I live in Alberta, Canada with my small geeky family and one cat.


Love practical but beautiful things? Want less junk and more organization in your life? Hoping to save a few bucks along the way? Me too!

A few things about me:


  • Professional wordsmith - the 'communications degree and author' kind.

  • Introvert - give me a good book and a cup of coffee.

  • Video gamer - RPG's are prime.

  • Budget conscious - perhaps overly conscious.

  • Book hoarder - sci-fi & fantasy are my jam.

  • Neat freak - ...somewhat less freaky now with a baby in the mix.

  • Practical DIY-er - I do NOT like stuff that looks nice but does nothing.

  • Christ follower - saved by grace.


Myself and my husband, Steve, have one little girl (codenamed Kit) and one cat—Ciri (fans of The Witcher will know who I mean). I want to share practical, beautiful, and simple tips to help you save money and live more on less.


We believe that there’s more joy to be found in less. Less stuff. Spending less. Worrying less. This is how we live well on little.


Living well for us doesn’t mean extravagant trips, splurging on cafes and restaurants, or cultivating the perfect wardrobe. To us, this means quality time with our family/friends, making memories with each other, doing low-budget outings or playing video games together. And when we do spend on something fun? It makes the experience more enjoyable. Crazy, right? If this appeals to you, follow us as we continue figuring out what living well on less looks like.
