Book Review: The More of Less by Joshua Becker

I have just finished the book The More of Less by Joshua Becker.

I have been following Joshua Becker for about a year now and am familiar with his minimalist journey, he writes a blog on the topic, Becoming Minimalist.  

I was filled with joy to read his book "The More of Less" and read about other peoples journeys to owning less.  The most eye opening comment came early on in the book when a neighbor revealed to Joshua that "You don't have to own all of that stuff."  

What a revelation that you don't have to be a slave to your items and that indeed you can just enjoy the few things (and few is a relative for each person) that bring you happiness and joy to each day.

I would recommend this book to anyone as it doesn't talk about needing to get rid of everything in your house.  Joshua doesn't preach to you it is merely a conversation to get your mind thinking about how much you need to own and why do you own some of the things that are in your house.

Developing a more minimalist approach to life is an on going process...I'm not sure it is something that you are ever fully "done" with.  

I was given an advanced copy of this book to review from Blogging for Books.
