I live in a tiny apartment with my wonderful husband and our perfect cat. We’ve been together since 2008! If you want to know all about how we met and our path to frugal living check out this post.

These guys are seriously the best.

I love to cook, eat, write, read, dance, watch movies, take photos, save money, play pool, hike, and generally enjoy life as much as I can. I believe that life is short and that we should minimize the stress and pain and maximize the love and joy.

Welcome to small things good!

  1. Thanks for visiting my (very new) blog and leaving me a note! I am browsing some of your posts and am excited to try some of your natural beauty recipes already! It’s nice to have “met” someone with similar ideas about living simply and fully…nice to meet you, Mona!

  2. Hi Mona! I finally have gotten around to visiting your sight and I wanted to say hello and say I’ll be using your recipes :). Julie (LA plane flight)

    1. Hi Julie! It was so great to meet you, I’m glad you had a chance to check out my site! Let me know if you use any of the recipes, I know you cook for a very large group and I’m interested to see how they might translate!

  3. I completely agree with you Mona – we collect way too much ‘stuff’ which means nothing and adds no value to life. I look forward to reading more 🙂

  4. Hi,

    I run a lifestyle/frugality blog. I would like to know if I can do a mini “interview” with you as a story on my blog? I will ask you about three questions and you can respond to me via email. Then, I do a story with you on my blog. If you are interested in this, please let me know. The only thing I ask in return is that you give me a “shout out” on your blog. Please think about it. Thanks for your time.

    Yours truly,

    Krystal Brown
