Book review: The Joy of Less
The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your Life by Francine Jay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think this is the best book I’ve read about decluttering (and I’ve read several). Part of my problem is that we have huge built-in cupboards in our house and the cupboards swallow up so much stuff that we no longer need or use. The idea of taking everything out and choosing what to keep (rather than choosing what to get rid of) is very simple but extremely effective. This book has inspired me to have a big clear-out this weekend, and I’m going to keep on STREAMLINE-ing my stuff. I’m also going to become a ‘minsumer’ – by buying less stuff in the first place.
