3 Books for Beginner Minimalists

If you’re ready to take the leap into minimalism, you’ve probably asked yourself “where do I start". While ultimately, that answer is up to you, a good starting point can be with books by others who have been where you are right now.

Below you’ll find a couple of my personal favorites. These ebooks helped me along the journey. To save you from creating a new pile to minimize in the future, you can always listen to the audiobook or read the kindle version on a tablet or smartphone.

1 | Goodbye things by Fumio Saski

This book is definitely one of my favorites because of how honest and open the author is about his experience. He walks you through where he was and what led to them downsizing.

It almost feels like you’re reading someone’s diary in that he’s not trying to impress you or really anyone but explain his personal story.

If you’re looking for a good story that’s written by a normal guy, this is definitely the book to get you started.

2 | Minimalism Sucks

Minimalism is not a religion, it’s not a perfect science and it definitely isn’t something other people can judge you on. It’s what you make it.

That’s why this book is perfect jump off point for starting out. It’s straightforward, to the point and helps you get motivated

3 | The Year Of Less

This book spoke to me on a personal level due to the fact that I’m still trying to climb out of a ton of consumer debt and minimalism is the one thing that helped me start actually making a dent in everything.

It’s always intersting to look at life through another person’s eyes and Cait does this well in “The Year of Less”

These are my top 3 picks. There are a lot more books about minimalism that aren’t on my list but are always cool to check out. What are your favorite books on minimalism? I’d love to know in the comments below!

Anti Haul! | Minimizing My Wardrobe!

The new year is the perfect time to minimizing items and figuring out what you really want. Going through my wardrobe, I found a few things that I was holding onto just in case I need them.

While that’s definitely not an uncommon way of looking at things, I’ve been trying to push myself past holding onto things just because I think they could be useful in the future. 9 times out of 10 they never get the use that was imagining and someone else could’ve used and enjoyed the item instead of it collecting dust.

I’ve decided to do an anti haul to get rid of some of my things and hopefully pass them onto people who will find these items useful. Some of things included in the anti haul are:

  • Anne Taylor Blazer

  • H & M Blue Blazer

  • Black Floral Anne Taylor Dress

  • Cream Bunny Sweater

  • Blue Polka Dot Modcloth Dress
