Oh, hi

Welcome! I suppose you’ve stumbled onto this page to discover what’s in it for you if you subscribe to Simple and Straightforward.

Simply put, Simple + Straightforward is all about simple, slow, sustainable living.

Ther are two options, one paid, one free.

If you choose to go free, you’ll get a weekly email from me every Friday designed to set up your weekend. I play fast and loose with the themes - I’ve covered everything from how a panic attack halfway up a Welsh mountain made me re-evaluate my life, to lessons learned from old Croatian men who don’t speak a word of English.

Going paid is when it gets really interesting.

For $5 a month or $50 a year, you’ll not only get the Friday mailout but also:

  • 8-week courses on everything minimalism / simple living, from decluttering to unbusying yourself. One course module sent every Monday.

  • “Recipe Wednesday” - a flexible recipe sent every Wednesday, designed to eliminate waste. I was in hospitality for nearly a decade and food waste is one of my personal crusades - we waste 40% of it, after all. It’s my mission to help you reduce that for the sake of your wallet, your time, and the planet.

  • The first 100 subscribers will receive a free copy of my ebook “16 essays to ease you into simple, slow living” worth $15
