Title: The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own


Author: Joshua Becker


Publisher: The Crown Publishing Book, 2016.


eBook edition


“Once we let go of the things that don’t matter, we are free to pursue all the things that really do matter.”


Also the creator of the Becoming Minimalist online community, author Joshua Becker realized one day that his possessions did not make him happy, but that they distracted him from the important things in life. Today, he advocates leading a minimalist and fulfilling life through reducing unnecessary clutter.


On the surface, decluttering seems easy. But how do you start? What do you throw away? What do you keep? The more decisions you are faced with, the more tiring the process seems to be. Trying to clean up your space can easily become a daunting task. In The More of Less, learn how to overcome these difficulties with practical ideas and suggestions. Sometimes, all it takes is a change in perspective to affect the way we view and value our possessions.
