Hits the spot, just what everyone's all common sense, after all but there it is, chock full of ideas that you KNOW you should already be doing but don't. It's motivation. Just pick and choose what you're going to take on immediately.

I wish I could dog ear and highlight so many portions of this book but it's the library's copy.

Popular blog writer (The Minimalist Mom) and minimalist expert Rachel Jonat has released a practical, helpful guide to tossing the giant do-list in favour of a more streamlined approach to life. "Do Less: A Minimalist Guide to a Simplified, Happy, and Organized Life" includes sections on organizing the home, money management, daily routines and social commitments. With its clear and organized layout, readers can either skip to the parts of greatest interest or read right through.

Several of Jonat's suggestions will doubtlessly inspire most readers to reduce mental and physical clutter: do a major purge of children's old clothing and toys, create a rotating weekly meal plan to cut stress related to grocery shopping and cooking, install a firm bedtime routine to resist the temptation to stay up late reading or watching TV. Others, however, may only appeal to a narrow audience. A minimalist wardrobe of five outfits may prove unrealistic for some and the idea of taking fewer photos to reduce digital clutter sounds difficult for parents and vacationers.

Fortunately, Jonat doesn't expect readers to adopt each of her ideas; if you pick and choose those appropriate for you and your family, "Do Less" will help in the progression towards a happier, freer lifestyle.
