The More Of Less By Joshua Becker
Rating: 5 Stars
In 2014, I stumbled across Becoming Minimalist and started reading with interest. In January 2015, My husband and I decided that we were going to make the choice to get rid of clutter and simplify our life.
Since then we have cleaned out the house, garage, shop, barn and attic and have gotten rid of truck loads of stuff. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve never been ‘pack-rats’, but we simply had a lot of stuff that we didn’t use, just taking up space. You can find my blog post with pictures here.
I like to think of myself as a cozy, comfortable minimalist…. I’ll never have total bare walls or get rid of all my photo’s, etc., but I do love a clean, non cluttered home and continue to get rid of things on a daily basis.
"Living with less isn't about having bare walls and no furniture. It's about getting rid of the clutter, so you can enjoy the things that you love." –Rhoda A Kindred
In Joshua Becker's latest book, The More of Less, he talks about the benefits of owning less stuff. While I didn't necessarily find anything new, it’s a good read that everyone can benefit from. Most people don’t realize how much clutter weighs them down. Joshua Becker defines minimalism as the intentional promotion of things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from them. Minimalism doesn't mean owning nothing and giving up everything. When we let possessions own us, we don't enjoy what we value most in life.
“Living with less is about having more…. more time, more money, more quality… it’s about adding to your life, not taking away.” – Rhoda A Kindred
All in all, this is a great book to read if you're looking to be inspired or want a more simple lifestyle.
