Welcome to Start to Simplify! I'm Ashley and I'm here to help you create a more simplified life by minimizing clutter in your home and reducing your impact on the environment.
My minimalism journey began in 2014 after my husband and I bought our first home. Without a doubt, that move sparked my desire to downsize our belongings. We have moved many times since (cross country & internationally) and each transition has reinforced the importance of "less is more".
During the Covid-19 Pandemic I developed a deep desire to make changes in my home to live more sustainably (eco-friendly & ethical). I learned that minimalism and sustainability worked hand in hand - both with a goal of reducing waste and excessive purchasing. I realized others wanted to make similar changes, and thus Start to Simplify was born!
