A Minimalists Nightmare Aboard an Alaskan Cruise

Ever since my wife, Shelly, was fifteen, she wanted to go on an Alaskan cruise. This past week we made that dream a reality, rather, that dream turned into a minimalists nightmare with all the “excess”. It’s the best word I can use to describe our first cruise experience. Living […]

Sometimes you need to enjoy other people’s life experiences

It wasn’t life-changing. It wasn’t inspirational. I won’t even do it again because a second time can’t possibly be as good as the first. So what was “it”? Well, “it” was something I did to help someone else have an amazing experience, only a funny thing happened — I had […]

Life is an Experience – So Make it a Memorable Experience!

This past week we had the opportunity to speak at the AGM of Credit Counselling Canada. We talked about debt, how we overcame it, and how we now live a life with less and promote spending money on experiences instead of stuff. And what do you think we did immediately […]

U2 Can Make Memories from a Negative Experience

Twenty years ago Shelly and I went to our first concert together – U2 at the SkyDome in Toronto. And last week the iconic band, U2, kicked off their Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary tour here in Vancouver. We anti’d up some serious coin to get seats – like $350 of coin […]

Does a Minimalist Lifestyle Require Planning?

Here we go again, preparing for another BC adventure as we set out for the Sunshine Coast this weekend. It was a spur of the moment decision and wasn’t planned at all – something we do a lot more lately than we ever used to. Aside from planning our accommodations, […]

It’s okay to keep stuff, even if you’re a “minimalist”

Selling all your stuff is fun, at least it was both times we did it. You learn new stuff each time, and when you do need to purchase stuff you know of better purchasing methods like Thrift Shops, or finding ways to re-purpose stuff, for that matter. But sometimes it pays to not […]

nomadic lifestyle versus stationary lifestyle

Is a Nomadic Lifestyle Better than a Stationary Lifestyle?

I wouldn’t go as far as to say we’re nomads, although we do live a bit of a nomadic lifestyle. We don’t exactly have a “permanent” address, and even when we do it’s definitely temporary. In the past three years the longest we’ll have lived in one dwelling is 5 […]

Epic Vancouver Island Sunset

An Epic Vancouver Island Sunset in Three Different Towns!

Evidently, March isn’t supposed to be the best time of year to visit Vancouver Island — at least that’s what we were told. When we mentioned we were going to spend a week there some friends asked; “why”. Well here’s why; We’ve never been there, we wanted to experience something new, […]
