Let me introduce myself. Hi! I'm René, yes, only one e. Born and raised in a small town, I grew up on a farm and moved to the (big) city after my studies.
I've traveled a bit here and there, and I plan to add more countries to the list soonest.
Now, you may ask, René with one e, why a blog?
Well, I love creating, writing, visuals, and lists. I enjoy short, to-the-point information that's actionable and easy to understand.
I find it frustrating reading through tons of unnecessary information to get the answers I need.
So, I decided to create a blog that's easy to navigate, with easy-to-find answers at a glance.
I'm writing about the things I love and am curious about - plants, finances, organizing and cleaning my home, productivity, and mental wellbeing.
I’m hoping to inspire you with the simplicity of things and that you can learn a thing or two from my experiences and research.
