The mission of Simple Living Media, LLC is — well, simple. In all our endeavors, we want to encourage people to live simpler lives. We want to provide words of inspiration, practical tips, and a sense of community for people who don’t buy that “having it all” equals happiness.
Occam’s Razor is a principle that states, “When you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better.”
“Have nothing in your homes that you do not believe to be beautiful or know to be useful.” -William Morris, 18th century architect
We think this could be applied in life. Who says you need every newfangled gadget that promises easier parenting? Why cook boxed chemicals disguised as food, when it’s cheaper, healthier, and most of the time, easier to cook the real thing? Why clutter your home full of stuff when you could stand to part with fifty percent of it?
Our experience, our readers, and our mission tells us that people crave simplicity. Families in the 21st century are tired of the busyness, the never-ending gadget upgrades, and the loud cacaphony of sales pitches for things they don’t really need.
In Simple Living Media publications, you won’t find suggestions about ideas or endorsements for products unless we really, truly find them useful. Really. We pride ourselves on recommending only outstanding products that really enhance life in some form. So when we write about it, we mean it.
Authenticity. Simplicity. Practicality. Good design.
We love it all. After all, we want only the beautiful and useful things in our lives.
Tsh Oxenreider founded Simple Living Media in early 2010 after the success of her blog Simple Mom, which started in 2008. SLM now owns several sites, all with the goal to help readers live more simply, and in 2013, Simple Mom became The Art of Simple.
