Organizing and re-organizing the same amount of stuff over and over will only get you so far. How much "stuff" do we really need?
The More of Less by Joshua Becker has been an eye-opening read about the counter-cultural and often misunderstood concept of "minimalism". He points out that our excessive possessions are not making us happy and, even worse, they are taking us away from the things that do!
In this book, Becker explains the misconceptions about minimalism, the benefits of living with less, and the steps to making it your own — because minimalism looks different for each person.
"I don't advocate getting rid of everything humanly possible. Instead, I encourage people to get rid of what isn't necessary so they can better pursue their goals." Joshua Becker, The More of Less, p. 20This book was a great motivator for my family and I to sort through our possessions to determine what we really need. I highly recommend this book for anyone doing the same!
