I think I already mentioned that I bought this book: The Joy of Less: A Minimalist Living Guide.

I’ve finally been reading it, and I’m onto the Streamline section.  It’s brilliant and balanced.  And I’ve already begun, even though I’m not through the book yet.  But it inspires me.  Especially in light of moving to Ecuador: I will be storing what I don’t bring with me (against the day I come back), so I don’t want to get back and wonder why I kept the things I kept.

Plus I’m moving home in around three weeks and would like less stuff to move.  Might as well get rid of it now instead of later, right?

I like the idea of going through things, methodically, and being willing to get rid of things that aren’t in use and never will be.

That to say, I highly recommend this book if you’re looking to trim down your stuff and create space in your life.


Today I ordered The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your LifeI’m excited.  It’s ironic to me that I’m buying something to help me have less things, but c’est la vie.  It’s the threat of having to move not once, but twice in the near future that has forced me to it.

And if I can just get this paper done that’s due tomorrow, well then, I only have two finals after that.  And then I can start thinking about the future, be it my thesis or a real job or where I shall live.

Less stuff, less stress, simply less.

Please and thank you.
