What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The premise is great; however, I could have done without the family drama details. I was looking for more of a motivational story and tips for decluttering & stopping impulse shopping. I listened to this story and finally had to increase the speed because the narrator's voice was grating.
Would you be willing to try another book from Cait Flanders? Why or why not?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Year of Less?
The details regarding her mother & step-father's divorce and her reaction to it.

I was so excited to hear that Cait was releasing a booking after being an avid follower of the podcast she creates with Carrie for the past 12 months. Last year I started my own shopping ban thanks to Caits story. I too was a blackout spender, I was in thousands of pounds of debt and was facing the very real possibility that I was about to lose my business. I decided to take control of my finances, listening to much of the advice given on the podcast. I gave myself to March 18 to get out of debt and I am so pleased to say thanks to all Caits (& Carries) advice, Jan 18 was the month I officially can say I got out of debt. Not only that, my home has been completely decluttered, my business is thriving and my mental and physical well being is so much healthier. The book was the icing on the cake to finish off such a successful year and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. I'm sure it will have the ability to change many more lives.

I have listened to over an hour and a half of this and have decided to return it. It’s not about the Author’s year of not spending, it’s more an exploration of the troubles in her life and her various addictions. I’m really not interested in reading about failed relationships and battles with alcoholism, I just wanted to know about the year of not spending much money.
The book is definitely not what the title leads you to believe.

The girl writes well and it’s a lively story about setting goals and seeing them through day at s time. Very motivating. Live the life you love. Ask yourself questions. What do you want to do - be - spend your hard earned money on - reduce and re-evaluate your life x thanks for sharing your very personal story. I enjoyed it.
I didn’t expect this book to effect me as much as it has. I believe it may just change my life!!
