Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism
The best-selling phenomenon from Japan that shows us a minimalist life is a happy life.
Fumio Sasaki is not an enlightened minimalism expert or organizing guru like Marie Kondo—he’s just a regular guy who was stressed out and constantly comparing himself to others, until one day he decided to change his life by saying goodbye to everything he didn’t absolutely need. The effects were remarkable: Sasaki gained true freedom, new focus, and a real sense of gratitude for everything around him. In Goodbye, Things Sasaki modestly shares his personal minimalist experience, offering specific tips on the minimizing process and revealing how the new minimalist movement can not only transform your space but truly enrich your life. The benefits of a minimalist life can be realized by anyone, and Sasaki’s humble vision of true happiness will open your eyes to minimalism’s potential.
Real words. You can feel the authors passion. I really connected as his thought process is real and felt expert. If you ever read a book of fluff this is not it, instead it’s very thoughtfully crafted and real helpful exploration.
Thank you for writing a book that can be used as a reference point that is the journey of minimalism.
Great book! Thought provoking and encouraging
This was a pretty quick read, but chock-full of useful tips/strategies/tools for getting started on your own journey of minimalism. It was very fun to read all of the personal anecdotes and experiences from the author.
There were a few parts that felt repetitive or like filler (ironic given this is a book about minimalism lol), but by and large was filled with good content.
I’ve already begun to rid my space of the clutter and will continue to try an implement all of the things I’ve learned from reading this book.
This book will grow you, change you, and make you new!! While also helping you find real joy and happiness in things that are not materialistic!
