Great book, robot narrator

Was really excited about this book since it’s specifically for families but the narrator, my goodness, was really dull and sounded very robotic for some reason 🥴

Thank your things for the purpose for which they served you and allow them to move on

Or something like that. Haha. I really enjoyed this listen. It was a great merriment between practicality, science and storytelling. I didn’t agree with everything but the author continuously emphasized do what works for you and constantly gave alternatives. Overall I felt like it gave some great tangibles such as What do you want to keep? instead of what do you want to give away? And the concept of the cost of things being the price of the time and enjoyment they take from you. Ill be referencing again and using these guidelines to better my family. To minimalism!

Wonderful Read!

Full of information on how to live with less and love it! I would highly recommend to anyone looking to declutter a family home. It has useful information for those looking to declutter a single home as well.

Family friendly

This book is great if you have a family, or not. I kids and a hubby that isn’t that much into minimalism , so almost every minimalist idea wasn’t so “family friendly” this one teaches you how to deal with small kids and teens! And how to approach your not so minimalist partner. Recommend it

Inspiring and motivating with plenty of common sense

I really enjoyed this. It felt much more realistic than some I have read or listened to before. It is aimed at families so there were parts that felt really relevant to me such as how to manage toys or birthday parties. I liked the focus on how a more minimalist lifestyle can free up time and focus for what you really want to do (ie. Less time washing, looking for things, maintaining, tidying and more time connecting with your family). It’s definitely inspired me to keep pressing on with decluttering.
