    I am a fan of Joshua Becker. One of my favorite books of his, that I re-read often, is Simplify: 7 Guiding Principles to Help Anyone Declutter Their Home and Life. I've also read The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own & Inside-Out Simplicity- both grea...

    [Note: This book was provided free of charge by Multnomah/Waterbrook Press. All thoughts and opinions are my own.] No one who knows my habits of book collecting would figure me to be someone who could argue for a minimalist home, and the only thing that keeps my clutter from bei...

    3 stars for those who have already downsized and don't need advice, but 4.5 for those who have a house full of stuff and need inspiration. I've read so many books on minimizing belongings and housing that this seemed like a rehash of what been published only with more theory and phi...

    "The goal of minimalism is not just to own less stuff. The goal is to unburden our lives so we can accomplish more." This is a quote by Joshua Becker in The Minimalist Home. Minimalism in your home and life simplifies every aspect of living. The author offers room-by-room examples to s...

    This book caught my eye because about 8 years ago, I was a homeschool mom blogger and I came across a 40 Bags in 40 Days Lenten challenge. Each day for the forty days of Lent, you fill one bag with stuff to donate. It changed my life! Having less stuff was very liberating! It w...

    An upbeat, comprehensive, step-by-step guide to creating a more fulfilling life by minimizing. Success stories, lists, and room by room suggestions enable the reader to feel inspired and not overwhelmed by what could otherwise be a daunting project.. ...

    Good motivational book but a lot of this information is in his blog if you follow it. Have been trying to minimalize for years and it is a work in progress. The best reminder: "It feels better to do stuff than to have stuff." Time and money are both freed up with less stuff. I will nev...

    I appreciated this book for its practical advice and low-key tone. It gave me two ?a-ha? moments: Pulling into my messy garage at night was a terrible welcome home, and digital clutter (emails, unused apps, outdated Pinterest boards) is still clutter. ...

    I first heard about Joshua Becker while reading Cozy Minimalist Home. In it, Myquillin Smith talks about Becker?s first (very popular) book, The More of Less, and how it inspired her to look at her house and her possessions in a new, more minimalist, light. I?ve never read The More...

    For the past several years, I have been following Joshua Becker's blog. I have also read all of his books through this one. His new book, The Minimalist Home is full of great information for anyone wanting to declutter and re-focus their life. When I read Becker's first books, we ...

    Okay, so I am biased. I admit: this is the kind of genre of books I love to listen to while cleaning my home. It gets me into the mood. I have read SOO many of these kind of books that it would really take a miracle for a new book to introduce me to something that I haven't heard or th...

    4 Stars My personal rating for this book (as far as how much I "enjoyed" it) would be a 3, but I am giving it a 4 star rating as I believe the book and its message has a lot to offer to anyone new to minimalism and the minimalism philosophy. I have been on the minimalist "journe...

    I know much of this already but it is nice to get the pep talk. Some of it was a little extreme, one pen in his desk, one in his bag and a sharpie for signatures. And then again, I don?t need my dozens either. I think it will help me to continue in the task of reducing and declutteri...

    I received an e-copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Short version: don?t do this to yourself, folks. Just don?t. There are better books about minimalism (and/or decluttering) out there. Long version: the thing is, I actually usually like books a...

    I thought The Minimalist Home was going to be about reducing clutter and organizing, which it is, but it's more. I was surprised at how much it got me thinking. Joshua Becker begins by having you think of your vision for your life - then think about your home and the purpose for each r...

    I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. After having read quite a few books on minimalism, decluttering etc., I think I can safely say that this is by far my favourite one of the kind that I have read. It goes through the home ro...

    Borrowed from the library, because if you're spending money on a physical copy of a book on minimalism, what are you even doing? Very brief read, completed in a day. I also donated or tossed about 35 things while reading it, even committing so much as to drive to the Goodwill and ar...

    I received this book from Netgally in exchange for an honest review! Have never heard of the author, I thought it would ve refreshing. But sadly was not. It was a very repetitive, and I found his writing style a bit messy. He kept saying things like "in the next chapter". "We'll ta...

    I wasn?t sure what to expect from this book, but it?s written by a very popular minimalist blogger, so I was interested in participating in the launch team. The book begins by asking the reader to imagine a vision for their life and the purpose of each room in their house. Imagi...

    Many thanks to NetGalley, Waterbrook and Multnomah, and Joshua Becker for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are 100% my own and independent of receiving an advanced copy. Joshua Becker has been in the ?minimal? business for about 10 years. He has a website whe...

    Thank you to the publisher and Edelweiss for providing me a free copy of the book. The fact that I got it for free does not influence my review in any way. Almost 10% of the book was taken up by introductions and "why"s. I swear, I read some variation of the phrase "before we start"...

    Joshua Becker took his 10+ years of experience writing about minimalism and packed it all into these 200 pages. I have never read a more practical, step-by-step guide to decluttering your home. I would recommend this book to anyone but especially to moms and dads who want to get a hand...

    It's been five years since I first encountered Joshua Becker and the concept of minimalism. It has been a slow process and a life changing experience for me. What I love about this book is that is answers so many of the questions I too have answered over the years in a methodical and p...

    ????? Wow, this book helped me with a momentous move. My husband and I are newly empty-nested after decades of kids and a mother-in-law on board in a much larger house than our new 2 bedroom condo. It's not easy to scale back. That means you have to throw away things you t...

    As the title suggests, Joshua Becker shows the reader, step-by-step, how to declutter and minimize each room in the home, including the garage and the yard. He continues with the theme of "less is more," as he has in previous books. He also explains what minimalism is and what it isn't...
