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 simply 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 has been a proud stay-at-home mom to 3 wonderful little kids, 2 boys and one girl (Kayzen, Tarek and Zaylee) for the past 9 years.
In 2010, Brittanie quit her full-time job to stay-at-home with their first born son Kayzen. She knew that going from 2 full-time incomes to one would be touch 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.
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.
Kayzen was the first born son in 2010.
He is just like his daddy (looks and all). He is very advanced for his age and can run any technological device you give him. Like his dad he enjoys video games and is a great little artist. He can play a mean game of Plants vs Zombies and enjoys building worlds in Minecraft.
He enjoys creating videos for his YouTube Channel KayzPlayz.
He joined our family in 2014.
This little guy is bubbly and the most kind hearted kid you’ll ever meet. He loves animals, cars and YouTube! He is certainly a momma’s boy and keeps the family on their toes. He is the newest convert to the gaming community and loves playing Left 4 Dead or Goat Simulator.
Born in 2018, she completed our family and was our final baby.
She is the sweetest little girl and daddy’s princess. She is just starting to talk, crawl and has the sweetest little personality. We cannot wait to see how she grows up!
