Meredith’s Story

A few times a year, I invite a member of the Simple Families to share their story on the podcast. Today, we are on a journey to simplicity with Meredith Bay-Tyack. Meredith has been a long-time member of the community, but she opening admits that she’s very much a work in progress. Meredith applies simplicity to most aspects of family life. She loves to shop second-hand and strives to be low waste + minimal-ish–which she interestingly notes often conflict with one another.
