Publisher's Summary

As another year unfolded, lifestyle blogger and mom of three Miranda Anderson realized she felt weighed down by the mass of belongings her family had been accumulating.

In an effort to pare down and cultivate a deeper sense of gratitude and abundance in their lives, she and her husband decided to embark on a minimalism challenge, where they would stop all unnecessary shopping for one year. It meant learning to use what they already had and being more creative.

"Less stuff, more adventure" became their mantra as they focused on gaining enriching family moments and seeking personal development. Life became about only choosing what truly matters and simply disregarding the rest.

With candid narrative of her experiences, insightful discussion of principles, and practical questions to answer, Miranda's journey will empower listeners to make small, impactful changes to live more intentionally and will show that whatever they have today can be more than enough.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Good Message but not well done

I like the overall idea and message behind the book but she repeated her self, contradicted herself, and it wasn’t well written and needed to be edited. I did not enjoy the narration. There are so many books on minimalist lifestyles. I would recommend picking a different one.

Love this book

This book is so uplifting and motivating. I love that she emphasized spending more time, effort and money on things that really matter, like time with loved ones, instead of stuff that clutters our homes. The authors voice is fun to listen to as well. I will probably have to listen to this book at least once a year because it’s that good.

Inspiring during my downsizing!

I listened to Miranda while decluttering in preparing a move to an apartment without storage. It is so much more than a book on minimalism. I have been inspiring listen to her podcast too. Thank you Miranda!

I TRIED to finish it but I couldn’t keep listening.

I liked the idea of the book but most of it was just repetitive story about the houses they built and things they bought or didn’t buy. If you are looking for action steps, advice, or encouragement on how to simplify your life, this isn’t it.

Such a GREAT read!

I loved this book so much. It gave me such practical insight on how buying less stuff (within reason) opens doors for more adventure, memories, and opportunity. I’m familiar with Miranda’s work and have listened to her on her own podcast and other podcasts before, but I still learned so much from this book. Even though this isn’t the intent of her book, we decided to do the exact same challenge Miranda did for one year. We at the end of month one and I can already see how it’s positively influenced my family. Bonus: she is super easy to listen to and loved that SHE is reading her book, not some mechanical robotic voice.

Practical

I saw good and bad reviews on this, but the sample was intriguing enough to use a credit. I've read all of the books by The Minimalists, and enjoyed them for sure, but they aren't practical for now. I am the only person in our house interested in minimalism, and can't clear the clutter that doesn't belong to me, or prevent others from making purchases. While this book focuses on a family journey to not purchase the unnecessary for an entire year, I think its practical enough in practice that any one person could also take up the challenge for themselves as a personal goal in or out of a family unit. Is the information new? No. I think the value in the book comes from the narrative of the experience. Where this family did make decisions to purchase items that were maybe not necessary, but in fact were useful and perhaps needed for a thought out, non-impulsive reasoning. I also thought the way they handled this adult no spend with their young children was great, and its something you don't see in a lot of other books on the topic, or at least not to the same level as shared here. Well worth the listen.
