I’ve been following Joshua Becker off and on through the years. Years ago I was on a huge minimalist kick and followed Becoming Minimalist and other sites. I occasionally stop by his website to read and get re-inspired to simplify my life.
In Becker’s latest book, The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own, he explores the benefits to owning less stuff. While I didn’t necessarily find anything new, and in fact, the idea of “I don’t need to own all this stuff” is the mantra found throughout the book. It’s filled with personal stories that serve to inspire a more minimalist life.
I enjoyed reading The More of Less. I’ve been on a minor decluttering/simplifying kick around our house recently and after reading this book, it’s made me take a second look at some of the things that I did keep, or reconsider things that I thought are “important” (like an unfinished scrapbook…I ended up tossing it.)
All in all this is a great book to read if you’re looking to be inspired or pursue a more minimalist life.
