Editorial Reviews

Review

"Inspiring in its straightforwardness and sincerity . . . I don't think it would be possible to read Goodbye, Things without taking a look at your own home (and life) with a new set of eyes. . . . In the end, what matters is the thoughtfulness the book inspires."
Janel Laban, Apartment Therapy

"In his new book, Goodbye, Things, Fumio Sasaki shares the lessons he learned by going minimalist. . . . For Sasaki, minimalism isn't about how little you have, but how it makes you feel. Sasaki credits his minimalist lifestyle with helping him lose weight, become extroverted and proactive, and above all, feel happy and grateful for what he has."
Heeseung Kim, Cosmopolitan

"Makes the case for radical minimalism . . . treat each of [Sasaki's] 70 tips as an opportunity to reevaluate how you use and why you keep the things in your home."
Jenny Xie, Curbed

"Take your spring cleaning to the next level with Goodbye, Things by Fumio Sasaki. A best-seller in Japan, this book uncovers why we want to own more than we need, what this mentality does to our well-being and how we can live better by owning less."
Katie Neal, Parade

"If you’ve ever felt bogged down by all of the things filling your life up with clutter then this is the book for you."
C.A., The Daily Want

"In a time of rampant consumerism, a new movement is preaching an alternative path ― one that banishes all but the most fundamental and enriching consumer products from our lives. In Goodbye, Things, Fumio Sasaki recounts his conversion from reckless hoarder to hyper-mindful consumer, and offers advice to those seeking the same simple happiness that he found in minimalism."

5.0 out of 5 stars Yay! Lots of tips on how to think differently...
By TruthSeeker on August 8, 2017
I'm very happy I purchased this book. As someone who wants to reduce belongings and simplify life, it's hard to justify buying another book but this does have a ton of wonderful ideas to help you let go, simplify, etc. (tangible and nontangible things).
