What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?
— Henry David Thoreau

Howdy! I’m Meera. I’m a native Texan, a general badass, wife, doggo mom x 3, world traveler, and minimalist with zero waste aspirations. When not working as a grants manager at an awesome STEM non-profit, I read an excessive number of YA books, play with my adorable puppers, constantly rearrange our home, and travel the world with my lovely husband. In addition, I’m a Recycling Ambassador with my city, a Citizen Gardener, and a Texas Master Composter.

You’ll find me writing about my adventures in minimalism, zero waste, house sprucing, traveling, food, finances, and self care — all while trying to live the simple life.
