    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...

    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...

    He had to use the trendy word, I assume, to sell the book. But really what he's talking about (as he explains in the proud but friendly beginning) is the *optimized* home. This book is for people who have not been converted my Marie Kondo and the wannabees... it's for people who need t...

    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 ...

    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 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...

    Before reviewing The Minimalist Home, I must admit that I have already made up my mind to minimalize my life. I'd lived in 6 different places in the last 5 years and each move was absolutely painful in terms of trying to get my stuff to fit into suitcases. I often left kitchenware, lin...

    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...

    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...

    ????? 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...
