Scroll back up and consider the question again. Now imagine that in the near future the only answer to this question will be "no".
Its a nice book as an introduction to the subject. I think this book is like being minimalist in the world of books on minimalism. The last chapter did not seem really connected to the subject as it talks of freelancing or being an entrepreneur. That chapter made me take a star away.
This was an easy book to follow with some good suggestions. I think that for the most part, much of this is common sense. In a nutshell, this is why most people 'spring clean'. Simplest solution is don't buy crap you don't need. Easy peasy.
Audiobook received from Audiobook Blast newsletter in exchange for an honest review.
This is not one of my ordinary listens but I thought I would do it in exchange for a fair review. The older I get I feel like I want more out of my ever busy life. The concept of minimalism is not new to me and I have made attempts at de-cluttering my world. Listening to this audio book has empowered me to take action. I am in the process of writing the letter to my stuff. I loved that that she has identified perils and setbacks that will happen along the way and provided strategies into how to overcome them and live a minimalistic lifestyle. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to declutter. I am empowered to structure my life to live with only what I need.
I didn't know how much I'd get from it, and indeed there were many practices here I already follow and some of it you would think would be common sense, but I got quite a lot out of the book! It's helped me a great deal in a short amount of time. The narration was clear, pleasant, and compelling. Very well done all around! I would recommend this book to all people that are thinking of changing there life to Minimalist Living
This book has made me realize that i was putting more value on money than my time, time that i would never regain in my life, time which is more important than anything money could buy. Its also made me realize that advertisers really do tell us that without their products we suck, but they do it indirectly so we don't really notice it then end up buying stuff which we later realize that we never needed. Thanks to this book i have started to change my way of living so that sooner rather than later i wont have to work overtime anymore. I have started fixing broken stuff instead of just throwing them away and getting new ones. I'm also gathering up all the clutter in my house which i don't need for a garage sale i'm planning. I've also planned to stop comparing myself to others and to cut my coat according to my size.
What i love about this book is that unlike other budget books its not telling you to starve from things you love but rather showing you how to cut back a little on things which are unnecessary
This is a great book that looks deep into the relationship between money and happiness. It gets a bit philosophical when addressing the need to spend and ones life purpose. The author also provides some good tips on how to save and taking on a minimalist life style.
This book does not come across with what I was expecting to be a minimalist mindset. This book gives you ways to simplify your life. It felt very much like the Eastern Mindset. Don't waste time, energy, money or space with things that do not bring you joy and fulfillment. Throughout this book Anthony Wright gives checklists on how to evaluate what you are doing, is it helping you get to where you want to go, and if not then what can you do about it. This book is short and easy to follow. Something you can go back to again and again.
I was a little skeptical going into this book as I kind of imagined that minimalism was self explanatory. (Just own less stuff, right?!) Happily, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. By approaching Minimalism as a mindset rather than a one-off chore it delivers much more value. I enjoy simplicity and this book showed me how to apply it to areas of my life that I had never considered simplifying before. Well worth the read!
Books on Minimalism always fascinate me. That's why when I come across this book, I gladly accepted it and had a good read. And I have to say that it has been a fulfilling listening experience because a month, of motivation and solid advice on how I can live with less. I find this so useful and agreed to every challenges this book has to offer. I will definitely recommend the book.
Impressive! Minimalism is a right way to save your resources. It is often hard for me to be organized and its giving me headaches. Good thing is this book gives me a lot of tips and practical advice how to declutter all the mess that I have created.Indeed, this book is a great read!
This is the BEST book ever written about how to minimalism! I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone wanting to get a different perspective on your "stuff". It's not written to help you get rid of everything....just have a proper perspective on it!! And a GREAT way to actually simplify!
