Just because you have space does not mean you have to fill it with stuff.
This is one of the overarching messages that Joshua Becker hopes to impart to the readers of The Minimalist Home. Becker recognises that Minimalism is a popular trend that has many accompanying misconceptions, which he clarifies. The book is based on the Becker method that is anchored on identifying the goals of the minimizing process, it will lead not only the freedom from clutter but also freedom for a better life. He perceives minimalism is a continuous process without a deadline. Since our goals fluctuate with seasons, interests, people coming and out of our lives, acquiring new skills as well as maturing and reflection.
This book fulfils all that it promises by providing an actual step by step, room by room guide to decluttering and drilling to owning things that you actually use and value. Becker also provides testimonies from minimalist coverts as well as his own personal experiences as illustrations.
There are numerous books in the market about minimalism. However, I believe that The Minimalist Home provides a clear, concise and encouraging introduction to the lifestyle.
