I’m your host

JJ Jacobs


Thanks for stopping by! I’m an artist and solo dweller, living in an 849 square foot house with my pup, Jackson Pollack. My home is an eclectic blend of thrifted and global treasures, art, and DIY projects. I grow herbs that I use in the kitchen and bath and follow a plant-forward diet, sharing healthy recipes perfect for 1-2 people.   

About Me

Welcome to Thriving With Less! I’m JJ (aka Judy Jean-Justine Jacobs), and my sweet pup Jackson Pollack and I live in a tiny 849-square-foot home in Northern California.

In early 2023, I sold my property management business and am now officially retired from the corporate world. It’s time to clean out the home office and start creatively living my golden years.

I’m also a lifelong artist who has been selling my paintings and glass art for ages. I am excited to share art techniques, fresh business tips, fun upcycled DIY projects, and small-portioned plant-based recipes with you.

Thanks for joining me!
