About this author

My name is Tammy Strobel and I’m a writer and photographer. I create ecourses that help students capture everyday magic with their cameras and empower them to write more often.

I started blogging in late 2007 to become a better writer and to share my story. Blogging consistently improved my writing and it resulted in a book deal! My first print book, “You Can Buy Happiness (and It’s Cheap): How One Woman Radically Simplified Her Life and How You Can Too,” was released in September 2012.


View from the therapy pool


As a kid, summertime was my favorite part of the year. I played with my neighbor friends, went to swim lessons, and got to spend time with my Grandpa Otto and Grandma Mabel. For example, I have vivid memories of my grandparents picking me up at swim practice in their giant green Mercury sedan. I remember being in the pool floating around with my swim instructor and feeling so happy to see my g...

“We gave away most of our belongings. Interestingly, the more we gave away, the better we felt. Happiness researchers call this a 'helper's high,' in which helping others through volunteering or giving reduces stress and releases endorphins.”
Tammy Strobel

“I held on to stuff I didn't need or use because I wanted to hold on to that part of my identity, or my perceived identity. I am writer, a knitter, a doodler, a skier, a hiker, and more. Cool belongings, like fancy skis, seem to represent my personality. But in truth, I hardly ski anymore, so why keep skis? If I accumulate stuff just to prove who I am, or was, it prevents me from doing meaningful things with my life right now, like focusing on health, happiness, and my relationships.”
Tammy Strobel, You Can Buy Happiness (and It's Cheap): How One Woman Radically Simplified Her Life and How You Can Too

“How many unexpected, unlooked-for tiny pleasures can you list at the end of each day?”
Tammy Strobel, You Can Buy Happiness (and It's Cheap): How One Woman Radically Simplified Her Life and How You Can Too

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”
Stephen King
