Publisher's Summary

Whether you are an experienced practitioner of minimal living or a complete beginner, have you ever considered extending your philosophy of minimalism beyond yourself and into your family? Is minimalism even possible when living with others? How about with children?

Minimalism is a vehicle to get you the life you so desire, but a life without your loved ones is not a life worth living. People often get their priorities mixed up and they end up focusing on all the wrong things. Your possessions aren’t important; your relationships are. So why not create stronger relationships by helping those around you realize what is truly important?

Everything needed to help spread your minimalistic lifestyle is right here. But achieving a minimalist lifestyle as a family is not enough. You must know how to sustain it. Some traditions, like gift-giving, will also change. But whether your significant other is a hoarder or if you have children, introducing minimalism into the lives of others starts with you - the minimalist. Are you willing to lead your loved ones into minimalism?

Mind opening.....

Guide to minimalism. I could not think that this is so interesting and useful. After all, being a minimalist is great. In this book, the author describes in detail what this concept means and how to implement it. I think that being a minimalist is good on all sides.

Thank you

Thanks author. The book itself is littler than the commonplace book, and it takes us through each room of the home to settle on key choices on what stays and goes. i love it.

Simple, practical.

This book is a must read for all families who feel that today's world is one that leads to over consumption and a general feeling of having too many unnecessary belongings and doing too many unnecessary things. I received this book to read before it was released and I was excited to read it. There are a lot of practical ideas for any family to use.

I want this book...

Great view and it clearly change or shift your perspective of where you are at rather of taking till you make it mindset. My ability for budgeting was sorely lacking. I feel I am getting a handle on it now as this book is easy to understand and quite instructive.

An appropriate guide

Holding clear examples of the time worth of money predictions were extensive and that was my main interest. This was absolutely written and very complete! I also found the contents extremely helpful, without a doubt. Everyone should buy this helpful book!

Useful and minimal in its content

Like that it got straight to the point. Would say that overall however I would have liked greater level of detail. Certainly not overwhelming at least.
