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, […]
