Become a Friend With Benefits


We are delighted to hear daily that Improvised Life has become an essential source of inspiration, ideas, and change in our readers’ lives. Writing, researching, and curating our diverse content is a 60+ hour per week job. After 5 years of footing the bill ourselves, we need your help.

For a contribution of $1.99 a month or $18 a year (less than the price of one cappuccino, one movie rental or a pack of gum…) you can help us remain ad-free.

In return you’ll have complete access to every new article and our giant archive of 3,000 articles and rising. We invite you to support what you enjoy and value.

Really Love Us?

If you really love IL and would like to express that love concretely, we welcome donations of any amount. To donate more than the standard subscription fee, simply change the amount after you’ve clicked the subscription buttons above.  You can also give a subscription as a gift by clicking here.

Platinum Level Friend with Benefits: As a special thank you, donations of $250 or more will receive a 1-hour Skype or FaceTime consultation with Sally about an interior design or cooking dilemma (you can also give this as a gift!)
