One of the challenges I set for myself during the second year of my shopping ban is to only read books I already own, and not even use the library while I try to get through them. While unpacking the last few boxes of stuff I have, I found my (much smaller) book collection and made a stack of the ones I want to read in the next few months. At the top of my stack was The Joy of Less, which my amazing friend Clare sent me a few months ago. I finally started reading it late last week and, with each chapter I finished, kept thinking it would be a great book for anyone who wants to embrace minimalism.
Do you know what the best way for me to spread the message in that book is? To give it away, of course!
It’s been six months since my last giveaway, and I think this will be my final giveaway for the year, so I wanted to make sure it was big. Instead of giving away 1 book, I’m giving away 3! One lucky book lover is going to get 1 copy of each of the following books:
- The Joy of Less by Francis Jay
- The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, and
- Zero Waste Home by Bea Johnson
Each book is great on its own, but combined they can help you declutter, embrace a less stuff-heavy lifestyle and inspire you to become more resourceful. As the end of summer approaches, I know a new season brings change, so my hope is these books will help you create some changes in your home / life.
Of course, I see the irony in giving away more “stuff” to people who want to live with less. If you win, my hope is you’ll read each book and then pay it forward, by passing them along to friends, family or anyone else you think needs inspiration to live a simpler life. <3
