New Minimalism

New Minimalism: decluttering and design for sustainable, intentional living / Cary Telander Fortin & Kyle Louise Quilici, 201 pgs.

Turns out new minimalism is a lot like the old minimalism.  GET RID OF THE JUNK.  Actually the authors give us much more than that.  You can uncover your emotional style of relating to your stuff.  This actually is very interesting and speaks to WHY it is difficult for you to get rid of certain things.  I'm sure many will relate to one or more of these archetypes.  I've never met a drawer I can't shove one more thing into so I appreciate the idea of determining when something is full. Like so many things, we would be better off quitting and being ahead.  Great for all you New Year resolution readers.
