1. I see this book reappear quite often in my reading, but I have not chosen to read this one. I’ve read a few others on Minimalism, but for some reason the title of this one turns me off. Something about the word “tidying-up”, ew. I suppose it makes sense to go through each section and remove everything and only put back what you really love, but to read an entire book about it, eh. That’s typically what I do anyway, go through each closet, drawer, shelf etc at a time. One of the great things about Minimalism is that it is flexible, and while there are many ways to get there, the end result is always one of clarity, simplicity and space 🙂

  2. I haven’t read the book but I’ve heard about her method. I have to agree. It’s probably working for some but families make it a whole new game. To be honest, everybody’s projects games and method make me irritated. Minimalism is so individual. I woke up one day and just got rid of stuff. I cycled back a couple of times. Now I feel content with very little. My husband and child are not minimalist. We somehow make it work. I enjoyed your post.

    • Thank you 🙂 I just don’t like the idea of having to follow rules. Rules just set you up for failure. This should be something you so to make your life more manageable and to let go of others expectations. I also want to enjoy the process and if I get hung up on the details of “how” I might lose the big picture of “why?” Thanks for reading!

    I am a retired empty nester with a house I call “my storage unit”. My adult kids store their stuff in my attic and basement. We live on our boat all summer so we just drop and go. I go through things every winter but between volunteer activities and traveling, well let’s face it, simplifying isn’t a priority. Heading to the lake, I’ll drink about it. Kim
