Really Good Advice On Decluttering Your Life

Audiobook: Minimalist Living: Declutter Your Home, Schedule & Digital Life for Simple Living
(and Discover Why Less Is More)
This was a very uselful and eye-opening audiobook. It really opened my eyes at the things that are clutter in my home and life. I've learned that I'm on the right track each day. I think I heard somewhere that every time you bring in something new, you should toss out two things that are old which will help you to declutter. This audiobook is extremely helpful and I'll listen to it again for moral support as I go through and let go of old things.

As for being a minimalist; I was raised a minimalist. My mother could stretch a dollar for a mile even when she didn't have to. Back in those days you couldn't rent movies or buy them and if you wanted books you went to the library. My mother sewed her own clothes and we went out to eat once a week. And we didn't have to do this, but it was how she herself was raised.

There was a place in this audiobook that touched briefly on how the Egyptians were buried with all their belongings and without being too blunt I figured it meant that you can't take things with you when you pass. That's my philosophy. I like buying things. What I don't like is wastefulness. I think in some instances too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. As for getting rid of things to later re-purchase them on Amazon, I learned the hard way that if you find something you love then buy more than one as 99% of the time the price will triple at least if not more or the item will be discontinued altogether. As for digital; I try really hard to not sign up for emails or subscriptions.

I am very glad that a lot of things touched upon in this book I already do without even realizing it. Overall, I found this book to be very helpful and full of good suggestions that I can work harder on to continue with my quest of de-cluttering.

The narration: Corinne Phillips is a splendid reader. She has a perfect voice for anything. She did an exceptional job with this book being a sort of guide. She was upbeat and positive with a subject that may be hard for some people to grasp. Her performance was spot on.

I received this audiobook for review and have left an honest and unbiased review.

Encouraging to be happy with what you have

Early on in the book Sanderson redefines minimalism from it's standard meaning of 'living with the minimum you need' to be 'being happy with what you have'. Rather than being about reducing what you have, she writes of stopping chasing the next thing or new things. Not using buying this to fulfill you. It's a good idea, but it's not exactly minimalism.

But if you can get past that redefinition, then the book has a lot of book information presented in a succinct manner.

There is instruction on reducing your possessions (in line with minimalism), and also learning to love what you have. It is simple advice, but useful.

Narration by Corinne Phillips is good. Well paced, clear and easy to listen to. No glaring issues or recording and production faults.

A minimalist book on minimalism. Good points touched on but needs more depth. Still enjoyed the listen.

A helpful philosophy and how to start

When I listened to "Minimalist Living", I felt as if I were hearing it from a friend who wanted to share life change that was positive for her and she hoped would be positive for me. The author's focus was on sharing what she had discovered in the philosophy of minimalism - making room for the things that matter most by clearing away baggage - and not on proselytizing, aggrandizing, or hyping and marketing, and she acknowledged and welcomed that we would all have different "flavors" of minimalism. I appreciated this tone in the book.

After describing how minimalism has been an improvement in her life, she gives several simple ideas and rules of thumb that can help readers and listeners to get started. It's especially helpful that she understands how monumental and difficult a task decluttering can be and builds some of her methodology for clean-up around that.

The reader was clear and did well making the book nice to listen to.

Wow life changing

I had never read a book on minimalist living before. The main reason was because I thought I would be preached at to pair down everything I enjoy to achieve a life style I was not interested in. Well I was gifted this book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review. I have to say WOW this book is wonderful and not at all what I thought it would be. Oh don't get me wrong the book does want you to think about what you have and remove what is not needed. But!!! they don't preach a holy than tho must do it this way idea. Instead the author shows you how to make the decisions of what is important to YOU and what is not. This book also shows how this can be used in many aspects of your life not just stuff. Corinne Phillips does a wonderful job of narrating this book really keeps you listening. I would love to have all my friends and family read this book.

Get rid of all that clutter!

This is a practical and realistic guide to decluttering your life. It not only tells you how to do it but it gives you some good information on why your life is so cluttered. I found myself shaking my head in agreement and thinking of all the things I need to give away or sell. I was already in the process of decluttering my life and some of the things I was going to hang on to are going out the door with the others. You don't realize how closed in you can become when surrounded by so much "stuff". Memories can still remain without all the material things.
