I am a middle class American, and my house and life is loaded with stuff. Most of it I don’t use nor need. I have been on a mission the past few months to discover the best way to get rid of it while at the same time seeking a more fulfilling life.
This is when I discovered Joshua Becker’s blog, Becoming Minimalist. I instantly felt rapport with Joshua and started down my minimalism journey. In the months I’ve been reading his blog, I have pared down my wardrobe to only the essentials, I have decided to cut out cable and only watch Netflix/HBO Go, I focus more on the time with my children and wife, and I eat dinner at the (clean) table with my family more often. All of this has lead to more joy and fulfillment, and less emptiness and stuff within my life. My decluttering journey is still on-going, but Mr. Becker never says that it will happen quickly.
The More of Less is Mr. Becker’s philosophy and practice of minimalism in one place. The book is packed with advice on how to live the life you have been seeking, even if you don’t know it yet.
The More of Less is part autobiography, part case studies while being full of practical tips and processes for getting rid of clutter and finding the life you want. The best part of the book is that it meets you where you are and takes you as far as you want to go, but I would recommend pushing farther than you think you can go because this is where you find more freedom within the journey).
Mr. Becker does not espouse an extreme philosophy of minimalism, but rather, a down-to-earth practical way of living with only the essential stuff that provides value to your life.
The book meets you where you are and take you where you want to go (he calls it minimalism your way, and there is a whole chapter on it)
Full of case studies, introducing you to multiple different personalities within the minimalism movement
Full of experiments for declutter, saving, and living a more fulfilled life
Gives advice on how to declutter your house and make money getting rid of stuff the easy way
Gives advice on how to save money
Gives advice on how to make a difference in the world with all the money and time you will be saving
[Not a con for me] Some people may be turned off by some of the Christian references
It will make you think before making purchases
It may cause marital issues if your significant other doesn’t read the book first to know why you are throwing things out and saving money on purchases
While The More of Less will help you achieve a clean closet, living room, car, or whatever you want to declutter, the best part is that it helps guide you in creating space. Space to give you a more fulfilled life. Space to enjoy time with your family. Space to enjoy the money you have. All the space that was under the clutter before taking action to truly discover what is essential and important in your life.
Do I recommend you read The More of Less? No. I recommend you highlight, underline, and re-read the book until the philosophies within the book become everyday habits for you.
If you do this, I promise you will find what you are seeking; leading you to a happier, more generous, purposeful, lighter life than you could have ever imagined possible.
I love it. I love the message and the message is simple .... free yourself up for living.
I highly recommend this book to people who want a "gentle push" into minimalism. It is not too much of a preachy book, but since the author is a Christian, there will be a lot of Christian references in it about Jesus and God. But I didn't mind the references too much at all because the way Joshua explains his references are mostly relatable to the reader if they are a Christian or not.
Get this book if you want to learn more about minimalism or want a new perspective on minimalism! You won't regret it!
