Annie is a prolific voice of simplicity. She wrote 11 e-books that you can find on Amazon Kindle Store.

She was so kind to send me a copy of her bestselling book “The Shoestring Girl: How I Live On Practically Nothing and You Can Too“. I’m going to read it and post a review soon on the blog. Stay tuned!

Annie combines minimalism with frugality to live the life of her dreams. And she shows people how they can do that too at her blog

    Hi, thanks again for introducing me another simple advocate leader. Annie’s got quite a unique situation yet it’s amazing how her advice & recommendations make sense on any socio-economic scale! I really like her down to earth sensibilities & honesty. I’ve been back-reading her blog for a few days now & am seriously impressed with not only her writing abilities but her simple living advice as well as her unabashed & unapologetic lifestyle. It’s quite refreshing to read of a simple living advocate who can make such an impact from seemingly so little. Bravo to Annie! She’s high on my hero list!
    Thanks to you again Mohamed for another great video! Good work all around!

      That’s what Annie is all about — making a great impact from seemingly so little.

    Love Annie reminding us of something we have heard from our Grandparents and Great Grandparents, “A place for everything and everything in its place”!

    She is absolutely spot on about being authentic in our relationships with others.

      “A place for everything” is a very smart tip to de-clutter and organize our space. If we just follow this simple tip, we can take a long shot in our simple living journey.
