Don’t Settle for More
Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the burden of our clutter. We tire of cleaning and managing and organizing. Our toy rooms are messy, our drawers won’t close, our closets are filled, and we can’t fit our cars in our garages. The evidence of clutter is all around us.
Meanwhile, this constant accumulation of stuff slowly begins robbing us of life. It redirects our God-given passions. It steals our greatest potential. It consumes our limited resources. And it distracts us from the very life we wish we were living.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
One of today’s most influential minimalist advocates, Joshua Becker, used to spend his days accumulating more and more. But then he realized how his possessions were not only failing to make him happy, they were actually keeping him from the very things that do. Instead of bringing fulfillment, they brought distraction. In The More of Less, Joshua helps you:
- recognize the life-giving benefits of owning less
- realize how all the stuff you own is keeping you from pursuing your dreams
- craft a personal, practical approach to decluttering your home and life
- discover greater contentment, less envy, and more joy
- recognize why you buy more than you need
- experience the joys of generosity
- learn why the best part of minimalism isn’t a clean house, it’s a full life
It’s time to own your possessions instead of letting them own you. After all, the beauty of minimalism isn’t in what it takes away. It’s in what it gives.
Make Room in Your Life for What You Really Want
"Maybe you don’t need to own all this stuff." After a casual conversation with his neighbor on Memorial Day 2008, Joshua Becker realized he needed a change. He was spending far too much time organizing possessions, cleaning up messes, and looking for more to buy.
So Joshua and his wife decided to remove the nonessential possessions from their home and life. Eventually, they sold, donated, or discarded over 60 percent of what they owned. In exchange, they found a life of more freedom, more contentment, more generosity, and more opportunity to pursue the things that mattered most.
The More of Less delivers an empowering plan for living more by owning less. With practical suggestions and encouragement to personalize your own minimalist style, Joshua Becker shows you why minimizing possessions is the best way to maximize life.
Are you ready for less cleaning, less anxiety, and less stress in your life? Simplicity isn’t as complicated as you think.
"Im so inspired by this wise, timely book! Like so many people right now, Im drawn to the idea of minimalism, but, to be honest, I find myself pretty deeply entrenched in bad habits of clutter and accumulation. Im so thankful for Joshuas clear vision for what life can be when we choose to surround ourselves with less stuff, and how in doing so, we create more space for living and dreaming."

If you have been looking for a practical, actionable guide to help you find a simpler and more fulfilling way of living, this is the book you need."
Patrick Rhone, author of Enough
"People are motivated to change when they grasp three important things: the clear reasons change is needed (the "why"), the clear path of next steps that can be taken (the "how"), and a clear sense that the one calling for change is credible (the "who"). This definitive book on minimalism offers all three pieces. And because Joshua is a longtime practitioner with sound credibility, the reader can rest assured that whatever steps theyll be taking will lead to a richer life of joy, generosity, meaning, and wholeness. If you can read only one book on minimalism, this should be it."

"Despite all the books and blogs Ive read about minimalism, and in spite of all the minimalists Ive talked to, I came to The More of Less a skeptic.

By the end, thoughthanks to Joshua Beckers gentle, simple, persuasive way of explaining thingsId thrown out a bunch of stuff, and I was a convert. Hes right; minimalism isnt about less, its about more."
