Publisher's Summary

Francine Jay pioneered the simple living movement with her self-published bestseller, The Joy of Less. In this fully redesigned and repackaged edition - featuring never-before-heard content - Jay brings her philosophy to more listeners who are eager to declutter. Rather than the "crash diet" approach found in other tidying up books, Jay shares simple steps to cultivate a minimalist mindset and form new habits, paving the way to lasting success. Her easy-to-follow STREAMLINE method works in any space - from a single drawer to a closet, room, or entire house. What's more, it can be called upon during clutter-inducing life events such as moving, getting married, having kids, or downsizing. The Joy of Less is a refreshing and relatable approach to decluttering that belongs in every home.

Nothing and I mean NOTHING new

I finished this book in the hopes there might be something that hasn't already been covered on HGTV and elsewhere, but no such luck. If you've never thought of or read about simplifying / getting-rid-of junk around your house, then this might be the book for you.

Definitely worth a read!

Great narrator. I really liked this book. Sometimes the writer got a bit preachy, and while I wholly agree with most of her points sometimes it got a bit redundant and I wished she would just move on and get off the soap box. I will firstly admit that it could be because I am far along in my minimalist/zero waste/zero impact journey, I have heard a lot of her points before, which could explain why I got more frustrated when she wouldn't move on than someone else might have been. To someone who is new to it all it is very informative and worth a read/listen. Very life changing and a new way to think about our lives today that is so meaningful.
