Hi everyone! I am Melissa Haag, author, wife, mom, crazy dog lady …
I started this blog to inspire you to minimize the unnecessary and lead your fullest life!
Five years ago I was newly married and life seemed out of control. From my finances to my relationships to my home, I had a lot of balls in the air and I was dropping them all. When I discovered the concept of minimalism, everything changed.
Living simply has revolutionized almost every aspect of my life and I am on a mission to share the peace and balance I have discovered with others who are drowning under the excess. Are you tired of trying to keep your house clean? Is there too much month left at the end of your money? Are you desperate to organize your schedule? You’ve come to the right place!
I’m passionate about eliminating clutter, getting out of debt, mastering my schedule with a planner, and eating simple, real food. I believe in making better choices, not perfection, and I invite you to join me on this journey to simplify and get rid of the physical and mental clutter that is keeping us from our best lives.
I live in a small city in the Midwest with my husband, teenage daughter, and two fuzzy rescue dogs. We are blessed to spend our summers and holidays with my stepsons here who are 8 year old twins. We recently bought our first home which saw us downsizing into a 1200 square foot house that was built in 1925. I have been a hairstylist for 20 years, but have cut back to very part time in the salon to pursue my passion for blogging.
