Life: Homemade and Uncomplicated

For aspiring eco-friendly, self-sufficient minimalists.

So! You probably ended up here because you are feeling (at least) one of the following:

  • the constant weight of something else you should be doing, preventing you from relaxing;
  • disorganised and behind, all the time;
  • without direction and unable to focus;
  • the need to be kind to the planet but don’t know how or where to start;
  • discontent with the things in your home;
  • the need to be at least semi-self-sufficient; and
  • overall, much less put-together than that person who always seems to be perfect in every way (you know the one).


This is where I come in. This blog is for aspiring zero-wasters, organisers, minimalists, homesteaders, and those who enjoy whipping up the occasional cracker of a homemade meal.

I’m certainly not an expert on these topics, but it’s the life I want and am striving towards, so I’m sharing what I know and will add things that I discover along my journey to a homemade and uncomplicated life. My aim is to help you:

Somewhat recently I discovered the concept of meaningful, intentional living; this entails a life that is more enjoyable, less stressful, less damaging to the earth, and filled with much more satisfaction.

I feel as if I have a richer life because of it and I’m keen to spread my knowledge and that happy feeling 🙂 If you feel like you’re in the right place, you probably are, and I encourage you to peruse this site to your heart’s content!
