About Us

Hey! We are Brandon and Brittanie, the founders of Simplistically Living.

We have worked together for many years on the blog, on various side hustles, and projects. Throughout these years, we have learned to simplify our life so we can spend more time with our amazing kids.

We are now on a mission to help families live a more fulfilling life away from the traditional 9 – 5 so they can spend more time doing the things they love with those that matter most.

Meet The Pypers

Brittanie Pyper

Brittanie has been a proud stay-at-home mom to 3 wonderful little kids, 2 boys and one girl for the past 9 years.

In 2010, Brittanie quit her full-time job to stay-at-home with their first born son. She knew that going from 2 full-time incomes to one would be tough so she turned to coupons, budgeting and learning how to make extra money to help supplement the loss in income.

Her frugality became so popular, she started a blog to help teach others to do the same. Over the years she has spent time teaching all she knows about how to budget, save money and make money online by building online businesses so others could build the life of their dreams from the comfort of their home.

It has since transitioned to ways to simplify life in every aspect from budgeting to quick and easy recipes (and everything in between).

Brandon Pyper

Brandon graduated with his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Game Art in 2017 and has since utilized his talent and skills to help create content while working from home with Brittanie.

In 2016, Brandon quit his full-time job to head home and work alongside Brittanie. He has since been the creative drive behind many ideas you’ll see around here on the blog.

Brandon is also an excellent cook. He keeps the the family fed because he loves to cook, is good at it and Brittanie totally doesn’t enjoy cooking.

Together we share 3 beautiful children (2 boys and a girl) and two furry best friends (Drogo our German Shepard and Luna our Siberian Husky).

Other Fun Facts:

We are HUGE nerds/geeks. We love gaming, technology, and all the fun that brings. You will often see crafts and recipes inspired by my love for the geek culture. When we are not blogging all of that here, you can find us on which is another totally AWESOME and nerdy place to hang! We also blog at Kids Activities Blog which is a fun place for parents to learn kid-friendly crafts and recipes.

I hope you enjoyed a little bit about the people behind this blog and we look forward to getting to know all of you!

can you substitute green food coloring for gel food coloring in the Grinch cookies? is there a difference?


Friday 21st of December 2018

You totally can! The difference is the gel is a thicker consistency and can make your cookies a little more gooey, so I'd start with a small amount until you achieve the color you want.
