Great practical tips

I loved this book! Not only for the practical tips on HOW but even more so for the emphasis on the WHY! Susan Rosewood laid out several reasons why a family may want to implement a more "minimalist" lifestyle and really helped me understand if I didn't have a good grasp on my "why" I would never follow through! I really took this to heart and figured out my "WHY" and then the rest just fell into place. I can honestly say I am already breathing easier and feeling less stress as my house becomes clutter free for the first time in years!

Full of practical ideas!

Full of practical ideas. I love this book because it is full of things you can actually do rather than being a book of abstract philosophy. It has helped me focus on what is really important for me to do and eliminate time spent dealing with things I don't actually need in my life.This book has helped me achieve more freedom from the chains of a cluttered sometimes chaotic life. No more running hither and fro stealing my life from myself because of so many trivial things that now seem wholly unimportant.

Excellent ideas

I've listened numerous books on a simple lifestyle and this is one of the very best. The authors know what they are talking about. Under the bed storage collects dust and dust mites. Closet storage units hide unused clutter And I've helped clean enough storage sheds to know the worthless junk they contain. Save your money. Give the usable items away, discard the rest. I totally agree that there should be a place for everything and everything should be in its proper place. That way you'll know where it is and rarely have to hunt or an item when you need it.The key to making this work is putting items in their proper place as soon as you are finished using them. The book is full of really practical decluttering suggestions. Also excellent ideas on the importance of decluttering. It inspired another round of decluttering.

Pleased with this audiobook

This book helped me to focus on the process. I knew I wanted to declutter and downsize, but didn't have a system, in mind or know where to start without being overwhelmed. This book gives you a map on how to do it all and still have enough things to be happy with.

No editing

First it sounds like it is narrated by Lurch the butler from the Adams Family. Very dry and dull.
Second they saved money by not editing or listening to the quality. Maybe they were bored too. The narrater restates multiple sentences, has grammatical errors, and even coughs a few times.
Third, the information could have been summarized into a list with brief explanations. The overall feel is that it was written by a kid and the teacher was counting words. To explain look for discounts when purchasing items,don’t throw everything out of house when decluttering, and instead of buying stuff go for experiences was helpful the first few times during book, but to keep repeating makes the listener feel the author believes people are idiots.

Worst Written and Narrated Book I’ve Read In A Long Time

This book reads like an essay that a high schooler hastily submits late and for half credit. So many generalizations, platitudes, and promises with no connection to fact or real examples.

I AM a minimalist and have read many books on the subject. What this book espouses is NOT minimalism but TOXIC POSITIVITY. Cutting out people in your life who don’t bring you “good vibes” is not necessarily minimalism. “Just looking on the bright side when we feel down” is not minimalism. While decluttering may involve throwing some things away, I think other minimalist authors might suggest selling, or donating or giving away possessions, because throwing away everything we don’t use is not good for the environment. This book frequently mentions throwing things away when we don’t use them anymore without attention to this nuance.
While I agree with some of the general ideas in this book, it is just so poorly written. It sounds like a computer wrote the book based on listening to 1,000’s of self help books and spit out something that sounds sort of coherent.

The narrators voice has this modulated sound that sounds like when the kidnappers call the cops on a detective drama....I’m not even sure this is a real voice on this recording. If it is, it’s really deep, good for you...but my intuition is that it’s not.

Finally, the most shocking problem with this audio book is that the narration appears to be UNEDITED RAW AUDIO. It is full of the narrator , stopping, saying sentences over with a different inflection, coughing and clearing his throat, sounds of him getting frustrated at messing up words. At one point he actually stops and says “mama, Mia” then makes a frustrated grunt and then says a line over. It’s bad enough that this made it on to Audible at all, but even worse that these ‘outtakes’ happen every 10 minutes or so throughout the book.

Fairy Tell Minimalism

Fairy story about minimalism. Not a realistic take on what it means to be one.

Waste of a credit

Nothing new to learn. Common sense in the world of minimalism. No real insight at all.

Recording glitch???

I liked the contents of this audio book but was disappointed with the narration as he repeated himself a lot, with fluff ups too, and even growled at himself at one stage. I am wondering was the recording not edited. Never happened with any other book in audible.
