Minimizing Chaos and Maximizing Joy in Our Large Family
My name is Renee and I am an American minimalist who married a Canadian packrack. We have 14 kids (nine homemade and five adopted) and three beautiful grandsons who live in New Zealand.
I write about minimizing chaos and clutter, organization for large families, raising kids with special needs, homeschooling, and how to feed a large family and my favorite kitchen hacks and recipes.
Weclome to my site!
Raising a large family is different than raising a typical family. While it means more of a lot of things (food, laundry, noise) it also means we sometimes require different items. I am a minimalist at heart and will always go for quality over quanity. But I’m also thrify…I am always willing to give a genric brand a try. Here you will find our favorite things. Products we use and love because they work for our large family.
