I’m minimal-ish and love this podcast!

This is one of the few podcasts on minimalism I listen to and one that has really helped me on my journey to reduce my clutter and become more intentional about my purchases. It is heavily focused on the experience as a mom, but even though I am not a mom, I still enjoy listening to it. There have been some episodes that I didn’t find very relevant because of this, however. I like that she stresses the minimal-ish- you don’t have to be perfect about minimalism. It’s more about starting the process and the intention behind it. It’s a lifestyle of wanting less stuff, focusing less on stuff, and instead finding happiness and contentment with what you have. I’m grateful Desiree has been able to share her journey though this podcast.

Breath of fresh air

I’m so thankful for this podcast. I appreciate that she doesn’t make a big deal about anything but is also humble enough to get into the small and big things that life throws at us. Her desire for inquiry and intentionality make my heart sing! Thank you for being down to earth, eloquent, and lighthearted!

Inspiring!

I’m loving listening to minimal-ish! Desirae does a remarkable job of honing in on the heart behind minimalism. It’s more than just decluttering...it’s a way of thinking. I’m inspired to finally let go of some things and at the same time to do some soul-work to change my mindset! Thanks Desirae!

Always uplifting and genuine

I started listening to this podcast when another podcaster was interviewed on the show, and I was immediately drawn to Desirae and her show. It fits the season of my life perfectly. I'm a stay-at-home mom. My firstborn just turned one, and moved into the home we're in now when she was just two weeks old... Desirae's simple statement during get intro about "less stuff (in our home or on our schedule) making room for more of what matters" is exactly the encouragement I needed in this season. I am not a minimalist, nor do I necessarily aspire to be one, but I do believe in purposeful living and that's what she brings to to table (or the headphones) in every episode. I always leave feeling like I can do this sahm thing with excellence, even on the messy and chaotic days 🙌🏼 😄

Not much on decluttering

I binge listened to the 4 episodes about clutter. Minus the episode with Joshua, the other three episodes spent most of the time talking about the guest’s life story and their kids. There was very little meat in a 45 minute episode on actual tips for the listener. I discovered she’s in a minimalist community and feel this podcast is a chance for her to chat with others living the same lifestyle. I thought I could find practical tips to declutter paper but the episodes weren’t about actual steps. Just getting to know others in the community and talking about their business and kids.

Enjoying

I am really enjoying this podcast. Interviews from new women each episode who practice minimalism and slow living in different ways! Very inspiring, encouraging and non judgmental. If you are interested in slow living and minimizing your life I recommend giving this podcast a shot!

Reccomending her to everybody!

I cannot get enough of this podcast. I stumbled upon it and this is freaking gold. I have binged all of the episodes. And even cried in a couple because it’s just like listening to friend who understands what I’m feeling and going through. Thank you so much and I’m definitely recommending this to my friends and family. ❤️

Love It!!!

As a teenager this has really encouraged me that even though I don’t live in a minimalist family, I can still be a minimalist and enjoy my family in the process.

Great Podcast

LOVE LOVE LOVE Desirae’s insight into living a minimalist lifestyle. However, Catherine makes it a little difficult to listen to these podcasts. I enjoy both of their comments but Catherine is a tad bit over baring in the episodes she’s featured it. It’s Desirae’s podcast so let her lead please.

Like having a chat with a wise BFF🤗

Desirae’s podcast makes my long commute to work a joy! She is always insightful, kind, and funny as well. I’m an empty-nester with kids that are grown, yet I still find something that resonates with me in her podcasts.

Great podcast

I love this podcast! I’m making changes toward a more intentional and minimalistic life, and this podcast is very inspirational. I do have just one gripe about it. The host consistently refers to the listeners as “moms”. I don’t understand the implication that the only ones who would be interested are moms..on the last episode that I just listened to, she actually referenced “women & moms”. Um..moms are still women. Maybe I’m being over sensitive but this just REALLY irks me every single time i hear it. Other than that, I’d give it a thumbs up 😊

A-mazing!

Desiree, can you be my BFF? I’ve been listening for awhile now and you embody everything I am and want to be. As a teacher, momma and someone working slowly to live with less (stuff, appointments, all the things), I relate on so many levels! I especially love that awhile back she did interviews with many types of moms, whether working full time, part time from home or stay at home. I feel like she hears the vast array of people in her audience and caters well to it. I tune in every Saturday as I catch up on housework.

Great content, but repetitive guests (often Christian suburban moms)

I love Desirae’s content and I feel she has a very kind, giving heart and soothing demeanor. I love her approach to minimalism which is practical, as well as her actionable tips. However, I find the guests she has on are so similar. It is often Christian, suburban, middle to upper middle class moms (usually white) and they often talk about their faith extensively. I’m guessing these are the types of woman she follows on social media and thats how she finds her guests, but I wish she would diversify a bit.
