I created this resource page so you can find my favorite companies who can help simplify your life. You can use these products or services to help in your efforts to declutter your home, declutter your schedule, or just make life a little bit easier.

Save Money With Online Shopping:
eBates – Sign up and get $10!
I’ve been using eBates for years, and I’ve earned back a couple hundred dollars just by shopping through their links.
As the years have passed, they’ve made it even easier to get money back, as they now have a Google Chrome Extension you can download on to your computer. Every time you go to a website, the eBates Chrome extension reminds you to activate cash back. Their app is fantastic too! Sign up today, and you will get $10 back as soon as you spend $25. That’s easy money!
Books to help you simplify:
Here are my favorite minimalism, simple living, and decluttering books. Each author brings their own unique view of the subject, and I enjoyed them all!
How to read books without the clutter:
You can be a book lover and not buy actual books. (I know many of you will argue with me over this one, but hear me out.) I love a good book in my hands, especially when lounging on the beach or by the pool. However, I also love a great book without the hassle of carrying one around with me all the time. I can read an ebook on my smartphone or kindle, out and about, even if I didn’t think I would be somewhere with time to read. It certainly saves me from “death by scroll” on social media! Since switching to eBooks, I’ve also cut down on book clutter significantly!
Amazon Prime – Kindle Prime Books
Amazon Prime includes up to ten books, magazines or audiobooks from their Prime library at one time. While the selection is more limited than the Amazon Kindle Unlimited subscription, it still has a ton of resources included with your Prime membership. You can get a free 30-day trial with Amazon right here!
Amazon Kindle Unlimited
If you are a serious book reader or don’t want to be bogged down by a limited selection with Amazon Prime, then you should check out Amazon Kindle Unlimited. It gives you unlimited access to any Amazon Kindle selections for just $9.99/month. You also get a free 30-day trial to try it out!
Use these tools to keep your productivity in check and simplify your life and obligations.
Living Well Spending Less Planner
What sets the Living Well Spending Less Planner apart from the rest is its goal setting pages at the beginning of the year, each month, and each day.
Once I started to use this calendar, my productivity skyrocketed! Although I don’t always use the time blocks for each day, they are there if I need them. I often use those time blocks for my daily list, if it’s a long one.
This planner is amazing. There are meal planning blocks for each day too. Best thing…you can buy this calendar at any time of the year and start it whenever you want! You pick the month start date. It is pretty awesome.
Meal Planning Services:
EMeals is a meal planning service on steroids. It is AMAZING!
I consider myself to be a meal planning guru, and this service is top notch. Pick your customized meal plan. They will send you a weekly menu, a shopping list for your store of choice, and if you like, you can even link it up to services like Wal-Mart grocery pick-up, Instacart, or Amazon Fresh.
You can get eMeals for as little as $5/month with a yearly subscription.
Plan to Eat
Plan to Eat is an online meal planning service. It doesn’t give you prescribed meals each week. Rather, you find your favorite recipes online or add them from your cookbooks or saved recipes. You then have an online cookbook and assign your meals to your monthly calendar. Plan to Eat will then send you a grocery shopping list that you can even download on your phone. Never be caught at the grocery store without your list! You can get a free 30-day trial, without entering any payment information. If you like them, it is $39 annually or $4.95/month.
