Synopses & Reviews
In Simple Matters, Erin Boyle shares her philosophy of small-space living and conscious consumption — values she developed living with her husband in a 240-square foot apartment for three years. Simple Matters embraces the notion that "living small" is beneficial and accessible to all of us — whether we're renting a tiny apartment or purchasing a three-story house.
Simple Matters is a nod to the growing consensus that living simply is not only more sustainable, but more practical and purposeful. Filled with personal essays, recipes, DIY projects, and helpful advice on how to be inventive with a tight space, Erin shows that living simply is about making do with less and ending up with more in exchange. More free time, more time with loved ones, more savings, more things of beauty.
