Expected Publication: December 18th 2018
SNYOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:
A popular minimalist blogger and author of The More of Less shows you how to methodically turn your home into a place of peace, contentment, and purposeful living. One of today’s most influential minimalist advocates takes us on a decluttering tour of our own houses and apartments, showing us how to decide what to get rid of and what to keep. He both offers practical guidelines for simplifying our lifestyle at home and addresses underlying issues that contribute to over-accumulation in the first place. The purpose is not just to create a more inviting living space. It’s also to turn our life’s HQ–our home–into a launching pad for a more fulfilling and productive life in the world.

MY REVIEW OF The Minimalist Home:
Thank you to WaterBrook Multnomah for sending me an ARC of the Minimalist Home! **I received this book as part of the Minimalist Home launch team from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing, but I was not required to leave a positive review.
Non-fiction – Self-Help
This book motivated me to get rid of a lot of junk that I didn’t need.
“Minimalism isn’t about removing things you love. It’s about removing the things that distract you from the things you love.”
I definitely wouldn’t consider myself a minimalist by any means, but I have always loved getting rid of things that I don’t need and de-cluttering my space. My personality is such that I like clean and tidy spaces and in a world that is go-go-go, a tried and true way to be able to upkeep your stuff and keep your rooms clean is to have less stuff. I was able to clear out my closet by getting rid of clothing items that I had been holding on to, but never wore.
I also decluttered spaces like under my bed, and my desk where I read my Bible. I definitely have a long way to go in my minimalism journey but reading this book was a great first step of learning the process of letting go of unnecessary items.
As I worked my way through this book, I did find that it did get a bit repetitive as it would repeat the same advice over and over again. Thanks for stopping by and reading this book review!
