The Year of Less- Cait Flanders

The year of less : how i stopped shopping, gave away my belongings, and discovered life is worth more than anything you can buy in a store

So this book was a bit different than I expected, but I really enjoyed it. I was expecting more of a “how to” book, but the book reads more like a memoir.

As someone who over shops and has consciously started to minimalism, I really liked that the Author took a deeper dive into the reasons behind craving material things. A lot of her points resonated with me and I truly agree with her that we can all live with much less. The idea of not shopping for an entire year definitely makes me frightened (haha) but I love the idea of being intentional when buying things and really only buying replacement items or items that are a NEED, not a want. No one needs 4 pairs of black boots, right?

Overall, the book was an interesting look into consumerism and what drives us to always want more. Highly recommend.
