If you want to know what “The Simple Vita” is click HERE!
Now that the new year pressure has worn off, I’m much more at ease trying to plan out my goals. Even better is that I have officially started! Read about HERE.
Let me introduce a new part of my blog The Simple Vita! I’m Italian at heart so of course I used vita which translates to life. It’s not correct grammar but this is the Internet and what is grammar anyways?
I will be sharing my journey and everything I learn along the way in relations to zero-waste living and minimalism! I am trying my best to S I M P L I F Y my life.

This year I want to achieve a reduced waste “zero waste” kitchen meaning that I will TRY not buy/use products that will end up in the landfill. I also hope to do this when it comes to self care products like face wash, shampoo, deodorant, etc. I want to shop secondhand most of the time when it comes to clothes. Fast fashion stores produce cheaply made clothing which end up in the landfills. (Not that I won’t ever shop at forever again because I know I will) Its all about being a conscious consumer.
I also want to make SIMPLE meals. When I say simple I mean BASIC AF. Since I won’t be purchasing a lot of packaged food, it means less chemicals. I want my ingredients to be natural, I want to know everything I eat. I also hate cooking so anything with 10 ingredients or less is a d r e a m!
Minimizing my life! So big proud moment when I got paid to do something I love and bought a new desk with that money. NOW everything must fit in that desk! I don’t want to buy more storage to accommodate my obsession. I want to have the obsession under control. I don’t want a million scraps lingering around for years and years. Use it or leave it. Every other aspect in my life is pretty manageable so I am confident I can minimize a lot.
Simple decisions. What I learned most in 2016 was that God has a plan for me. I worked VERY hard to trust him and his timing. I don’t want to sit and think of a million ‘what if’ scenarios (good or bad) I want to make decisions without overthinking. I want to continue the trust I have in Him.
I am SUPER excited for this lifestyle change. I admire the people that are true Minimalists and Zero-Waste. It’s a journey and it wont happen over night but it’ll be worth it.
