And I’m going to help you trade your stress, clutter and self-doubt for a clear mind, self control and unshakeable confidence!

To me, simple living/minimalism is not about decluttering and owning less. It’s about living with purpose and aligning your thoughts, and how you spend your time and money with that purpose.

She Needs Less is here to help you get clear on what you truly want out of life and then redesign your mindset and habits to get it.


Copywriter & yoga teacher passionate about living with less

I’m Tara Caguiat, a Florida-born gal determined to accomplish my wildest dreams and overcome my worst fears.

I started traveling the moment I moved out—with my first college semester abroad in Panamá—and I haven’t really stopped since. 

All my travels built my self-confidence and showed me that I don’t need much to be happy and thrive in this life. It’s not what I pack in my bag or what kind of car I have waiting at home that gives me fulfillment, but the experiences and special relationships built along the way.


I soon realized that the less I bought, the more money I had for things I valued, like international flights. And the less I owned, the less stress and responsibility I felt for objects that were just collecting dust.

I figured if traveling and getting rid of stuff makes me so happy, it must make others happy, too! So, I did what every millennial with a message does—start a blog. And so, She Needs Less was born in 2017 out of wanting a place to share my travels and unfolding journey into minimalism.
