Can we all just take a moment to give thanks that 2020 is in the rearview mirror? I’m more than ready for a fresh start and some decluttering, in both a physical and metaphorical sense. For our first LWD Book Club selection of the year, I’ve selected Joshua Becker’s book, The Minimalist Home.

The Minimalist Home
I believe we’ve already established that I am not a minimalist. And honestly, that isn’t even a goal for me. My preferred interior design look is that of an English country home that has been in the family for several generations. I like a richly layered look rather than the simple, uncluttered surfaces most minimalists seem drawn to.
Still, there is something to be said for paring down the excess. And after almost 40 years of marriage and 23 years in this house, we have a lot of excess.
David and I have decluttered and organized several spaces during the pandemic and it feels really good. We have a lot more to do, though, and I am looking forward to reading The Minimalist Home. I’ll take what applies to my lifestyle and leave that which doesn’t.
I enjoy Joshua Becker’s YouTube channel, too. The videos are short and to the point. I also like his calm, peaceful demeanor.
If you could stand to pare down your belongings, I hope you’ll join me in reading this month’s book club selection:
One of today’s most influential minimalist advocates takes us on a decluttering tour of our own houses and apartments, showing us how to decide what to get rid of and what to keep. He both offers practical guidelines for simplifying our lifestyle at home and addresses underlying issues that contribute to over-accumulation in the first place. The purpose is not just to create a more inviting living space. It’s also to turn our life’s HQ—our home—into a launching pad for a more fulfilling and productive life in the world.
