#FridayReads: Simple Matters by Erin Boyle

It would be an understatement to say that we LOVE Reading My Tea Leaves at Stowaway. Erin Boyle’s focus on simplicity speaks to us as a brand that works to make women’s lives easier starting with her morning routine. It doesn’t hurt that our philosophies of less is more align. She has an knaack for focusing on the beautiful, useful, and meaningful and through her example reevaluate what isn’t working in our own lives. So when she came out with a book Simple Matters it was immediately on our to read list.


For anyone looking to declutter, organize, and simplify, author Erin Boyle shares practical guidance and personal insights on small-space living and conscious consumption. At once pragmatic and philosophical, Simple Matters is a nod to the growing consensus that living simply and purposefully is more sustainable not only for the environment, but for our own happiness and well-being, too. Boyle embraces the notion that “living small” is beneficial and accessible to us all—whether we’re renting a tiny apartment or purchasing a three-story house. Filled with personal essays, projects, and helpful advice on how to be inventive and resourceful in a tight space, Simple Matters shows that living simply is about making do with less and ending up with more: more free time, more time with loved ones, more savings, and more things of beauty.
