Hi, I'm Meg!

I’m the author of “Have Yourself a Minimalist Christmas” and the mother of two messy but wonderful little girls who were my catalyst for seeking an intentional and minimalist life. My husband and I have set an ambitious goal to achieve financial independence and retire early (“FIRE”) before he turns 40 (in less than two years!). Between navigating the clutter that comes with parenthood and this goal to retire early, frugality and sustainability have become guiding principles in my everyday life along with a minimalist lifestyle. I’ve learned that less truly is more.

A former journalist, editor and digital marketer, I’m now a full-time mother who writes, blogs, and speaks about minimalism and frugalism—philosophies that have afforded my family the luxury of time and freedom to explore the things that matter the most to us.

When we reach our goal of financial independence, we plan to move to Central America. We currently live on an island off the coast of Florida and we don’t take a single day of our good fortune for granted! We work hard to maintain a balance of staying focused on our future goals while also practicing gratitude for our present. Feel free to follow along at @MegNordmann or let’s chat on Twitter!

If you’re looking for inspiration on minimalism during the holidays, then you can follow my book at @minimalist_christmas on Instagram or browse images I’ve collected on Pinterest.
