Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the weight and burden of our clutter, and we tire of cleaning and managing and organizing. While excess consumption leads to bigger houses, faster cars, fancier technology, and cluttered homes, it never brings happiness. Rather, it results in a desire for more. It redirects our greatest passions to things that we can never fulfill, and it distracts us from the very life we wish we were living. But it doesn't have to be this way. In The More of Less, Joshua Becker helps you: recognize the life-giving benefits of owning less, realize how all the stuff you own is keeping you from pursuing your dreams, craft a personal, practical approach to decluttering your home and life, experience the joys of generosity, learn why the best part of minimalism isn't a clean house; it's a full life. It's time to own your possessions instead of letting them own you. After all, the beauty of minimalism isn't in what it takes away. It's in what it gives.… (mais)

Excellent discussion of both the practical approaches to a minimalist life, as well as the fruits of following such a path. ( )

This book is the "Bible" of minimalism! Read it. practice it, give it as a gift to as many people as you can! Forget the rest of the organizing books and just get your copy of this one!!!!!!

Originally came across Becker via other minimalism sites and picked up his book out of curiosity. If you're at all familiar with minimalism a lot of this won't be too new to you: what minimalism is, how he and his family use it in their lives, why minimalism is helpful, how to make it work for you, etc.

Can't say there's a lot here that is new or a shock. Like others, I was turned off by discussions of Christianity and Jesus. An interesting angle, perhaps, especially for someone of a similar or same faith. But I really didn't feel this was necessary as part of this discussion and was a bit of a stretch.

Also didn't quite understand why he'd bring in topics like gym memberships and body health. I can somewhat understand if it's about keeping clutter like gym equipment out of the home and he did pick a no frills gym chain that has no classes or perks of more expensive gyms. But this just seemed like an odd angle (some people really like the gyms with the fancy equipment, tons of classes and the like) and feel like it's one of those things that is really up to the individual and what works for them. The "most" minimalist way of this particular topic, for example, could be be working out using the body only, no gyms, no home equipment, no hobbies that require additional gear (from hiking to tennis to golf, etc.).

Anyway, this book didn't tell me anything new. At this point I've read a few books on minimalism and was also more interested in the practical aspects vs. a 101 text. Admittedly it would have helped if I had read this sooner instead of letting it sit on my shelf but again, the religious themes would have also been a bit of a turnoff, especially if it was my first entry into minimalism.

A good book perhaps if you're new to minimalism and don't mind the religious discussions but if you're not there are probably other books out there. Library borrow would be my recommendation. ( )

I especially appreciated this for the Christian perspective on minimalism--which was unexpected, as I didn't infer from the description that the book was written from a religious perspective. He talks about how the process of decluttering can be charitable if you give to those in need and designate some of your cast offs for homeless shelters, crisis pregnancy centers, or sell all you have and give the money to the poor. In addition to the rich young ruler, Becker also helpfully draws illustrations from Solomon, Christ, and other biblical characters. Finally, he discusses how a more streamlined life can provide more time for volunteering.

This book is about a lot more than this--it definitely covers the minimalist essentials--but the insight from Christian faith is what made it stand out to me. ( )

Loved this one! The principles that Becker introduces rang true for me in a way that the Kondo book did not. He gave practical tips on how to execute minimalism in your own life. He also talked about determining your goals before you begin the process. His point on minimalizing so that you can focus on what's important is exactly how I feel. ( )
