This is my very first book on minimalist living. Great book and easy to ready. I liked that the author applies her technique to all the rooms in the house in separate chapters, which is very helpful for memorizing the basic rules.

A nice quick read, straight to the point and simple to follow. I may borrow it again in the future as a refresher but I made notes so I can continue my journey of decluttering without holding anyone else up!

I very quick read. I was quickly inspired to start minimizing and organizing, but never really got much done :) Good basic material and I agree with sharonus, it is very repetitive.

Very helpful with memorable lessons. I now realize the value of empty space. And it's true... getting rid of things can almost be fun!

When we are content with "enough," life becomes infinitely easier, more pleasant, and less harried.
