I thought this book would be just another Mari Kondo spin off, but was pleasantly surprised that I liked it much more than her book along the same topic. Joshua Becker writes about how Americans are over-consumers, and still are not happy in general. We own way too much stuff, and then have to spend all of our time taking care of said stuff, or working in order to purchase more stuff. We spend many hours organizing and sorting through our stuff.
His principals of owning less in order to pursue our dreams is a worthy endeavor. In this book, he teaches you to conform to a minimalist mind set, but in a balanced way. I love the fact that he advocates balance in the process. I felt that a lot of other authors had more of an all-or-nothing approach, but Becker’s approach is very manageable.
Definitely, give this book a read, if you’re tired of living with all the “stuff” and want to pursue the freedom of decluttering and minimizing your life.
