Fewer & Better is a maximalist’s attempt to live a more edited life–think Nancy Meyers meets Marie Kondo. I write about the sentiment behind clothes, the importance of the personal touch, and the joy of knowing that what you own is also what you love. In focusing on quality over quantity, and well-made forever pieces over consumerism, I have built a reputation for recommending the “fewer and better” pieces, instead of what’s easiest. Whether it’s stationery, a great sweater, or a pair of shoes that will last a lifetime, everything I recommend is tested and loved by me!


I am a native New Yorker who, after stints in Maryland, Colorado, Texas, Ireland, and Washington, D.C. (among others), returned in 2017. I currently live on the North Shore of Long Island with my husband and preschooler. In addition to writing my blog, I run a small Manhattan-based historical society. I love to read, write, and needlepoint.

I love to hear from readers! Please feel free to reach out any time by email (at sarah@fewerandbetterblog.com), via Instagram, or by leaving a comment on the blog.
