Summary: 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. (2018,

Review: This book will change your life!  I've been wanting to declutter my home for a long time, but I never really knew where to begin.  The popular phrase "Less is more" is something I kept thinking about when I read this book.  Why do we have to have so much stuff? We really don't need it all.  I think the key thing I took away from Becker's book is to remember to keep only what is of special value to you and get rid of the rest.  

In The Minimalist Home you learn how to break down the declutter process room by room.  You start with the easier rooms and then move on the harder ones.  I like how he outlines this for you and really gives you a lot to think about as you reduce the amount of unnecessary bulk/stuff in your house.  I'm still in this process and it's not something you need to get done in a week.  Go as quickly or as slowly as you need to.  I'm being more conscious of stuff and space in my home and it really has made a difference.  I am now applying this to my office at work and it feels great!  I definitely recommend this book to everyone!
