About the Book
Minimalism - a trendy fringe idea for the wealthy, or the practical answer to many people's problems? Well, considering Mahatma Gandhi was what we would now call a minimalist, this might be a way of life worth considering! The world has become a chaotic consumer driven drum banging for our attention and purchases. But do we ever stop to think about how what we buy affects us and the planet? This book explains how our stuff is entwined with our identity, why we feel compelled to buy so much stuff, and how that stuff affects our lives in many different ways. It looks beyond the shopping mall and explores the ramifications of our purchases on other people and the environment. Learn about how you can shift from feeling overwhelmed by consumerism and held back by the needless stuff in your life. Using the tips and steps outlined in this book, you will be able to create a more relaxed, carefree, time rich, and financially comfortable life. No matter what stage you're starting at and where you see this taking you, simplifying and adding value to your life can only be a positive thing!
