The Joy of Less is a plain joy to read! They say that a clean, clutter free environment helps you maintain a clean and clutter free mind.
If that’s true, then everyone ought to read The Joy of Less by Francine Jay.
She will teach you to sort out the stuff around you in order to find true happiness or at least that’s the claim, but does it work?
More Practical Than “Sparking Joy”
We have to assume that there’s a bit of Marie Kondo in here somewhere, but this is a much more direct and practical guide and involves much less inner questing for “sparks of joy”.
That’s a good thing in our book – it’s nice to be able to get to the point in a self-help manual.
Francine begins with an explanation of why you need to cut down on stuff in your life and a bit of motivation to get moving.
Then she offers a broad-brush strokes guide to getting to grips with this plus a room-by-room guide to tackling specific problems.
Then she wraps up by providing a strategy to get your family on board with this.
A World Leading Authority
