Do you feel like you have too much stuff?? Do you love the idea of decluttering, getting rid of the non-essentials and making space in your life for the things that are truly important, but you're not quite sure where to start? Do you worry about waste, and hold on to things you know in your heart you don't need because you can't bear the thought of throwing them in the bin? Would you like to find a way of letting go that doesn't mean contributing to landfill, or overloading the charity shops? Is your stuff making you feel a little bit guilty? Do you want to let go of the guilt once and for all?
Less Stuff is a guide for people who find it difficult to declutter and who don't want to see things go to waste. Clutter impacts on our productivity, stresses us out and keeps us stuck. Why do we let our stuff stand in the way of the lives we dream about?
But what about when it comes to throwing away all that stuff? After all, there is no 'away'. Decluttering is great for our mental wellbeing, and when done right, it can be good for the planet too. When we rehome, repurpose or recycle the things we no longer need, we free up existing resources for others and reclaim our homes with less guilt.
In Less Stuff you'll explore, step by step, finding your 'enough', learn how to let go of your old possessions without sending them to landfill, and eventually break the cycle of stuff. The end result is a planet with less strain, a home with more peace and a life with more meaning.
This is an essential yet simple, joyful guide to decluttering that reminds us what's important in life.
