The house, yard, car, and closet are costing you a shit-ton of money—are you sure they are making you happy?
Small Space, Big Taste is all about choosing to live in small, low maintenance homes so that your time and money are freed up to put towards things you truly want. Plus, small spaces are better for the environment—they take fewer resources to build and power, and decrease the accumulation of stuff. With more money, you can make higher-quality, longer-lasting purchases, which drive the cycle of prosperity. With more time you can develop spaciousness in your home and in your life.
This new way of living is equal parts honesty, audacity, and creativity. It takes work and thoughtfulness to shun the status quo, but the result is more freedom! It's time to re-design how you spend, eat, and live to get the most out of your resources and this blog will help you do that.

I bolted out of my college finance class after calculating what my loans for out-of-state tuition were going to cost me. I still got the finance degree, just somewhere else. That was over a decade ago and since then I've been optimizing my definition of success. Spoiler alert: it doesn't look like everyone else's.
Now I’m my own boss living in a Manhattan studio apartment with my husband Ryan. I work part-time (by day I help tech companies take new products to market) and the rest of my day is spent on this blog, learning piano, and traveling often. My lifestyle is possible by keeping my living expenses low and my possessions few. Embracing minimalism and getting scrappy with my spending has made me happier, healthier, and wealthier—and it can for you too.
