Hello and welcome!  My name is Shannon, I’m so happy you’re here.

Join me and my family as we strive to live a simple life: home organization, minimalism, simple living, and fun projects.

I am a mom to three boys and a wife to an amazing guy named Grant. 

Simple Living Shannon Torrens

We are on a journey to become minimal with stuff, so we can enjoy more experiences.  I love to live simply!  We have a vlog YouTube channel where I share those experiences and I have a minimalist Youtube channel documenting our journey to being more intentional and minimal.

I am currently decluttering my home and life, which you can see in live-action on the youtube channel, and trying to travel and enjoy life at the same time.  With three children, it isn’t as calm as it might look online.

I was born and raised in California which is where I am currently living.

I love organizing while also making our home as cozy and functional as possible.  I love to decorate with a very simple clean style. 












I graduated from CSUF with my bachelor of fine arts degree in 2006.  This blog started in 2008 when I decided to make a slight change in my life.  I moved from California, where I was born & raised, to New Zealand.  I arrived in NZ as a young single person ready for an adventure.  Within the first month of being in NZ I met my love, Grant!  In 2011 we moved back to CA and got married.


Thank you for stopping by see you in the comments!
