A practical guide to decluttering your home and simplifying your life

The Minimalist Home: A Room-By-Room Guide to a Decluttered, Refocused LifeMinimalism is a growing trend.  Some people call it decluttering.  Some do it to live a simpler life, while others do it because it’s a trend.  But while those who do it as a trend tend to just add more stuff to fill the empty spaces, people who want to live a simpler life find a peace and satisfaction in knowing they have less to clean, maintain and trip over.

Today, people who desire a simpler life may not know what to do first.  They may not know how to make it last, but Joshua Becker, in his book “The Minimalist Home”, offers easy-to-follow steps to a more relaxing home.  Becker believes that minimalism gives you something rather than depriving you of things.

By following Becker’s step-by-step instructions, you will have a more inviting home, a more relaxing place to sleep and items worth keeping.  The very first step, though, is to get your family on board.  You can’t do it without them, their help and consent.

Each chapter focuses on a single room of your house with steps to declutter and organize, as well as a minimizing checklist to make sure you stay on track.  Even if you are just looking for a little help organizing, you will benefit from this book. Becker encourages you to think about what you are keeping to make sure you really need it and will use it.
