The best-selling phenomenon from Japan that shows us a minimalist life is a happy life.

Fumio Sasaki is not an enlightened minimalism expert or organizing guru like Marie Kondo—he’s just a regular guy who was stressed out and constantly comparing himself to others, until one day he decided to change his life by saying goodbye to everything he didn’t absolutely need. The effects were remarkable: Sasaki gained true freedom, new focus, and a real sense of gratitude for everything around him. In Goodbye, Things Sasaki modestly shares his personal minimalist experience, offering specific tips on the minimizing process and revealing how the new minimalist movement can not only transform your space but truly enrich your life. The benefits of a minimalist life can be realized by anyone, and Sasaki’s humble vision of true happiness will open your eyes to minimalism’s potential.

I’ve been trying to be a minimalist for years now with little success. But this book really clicked with me. Thanks

But I must say this is among the best. It is well-reasoned, logical , and does consider people's emotional attachments. I really enjoyed the photographs as well as his anecdotes of other minimalists. Excellent book .

Thought it was helpful and informative. I liked that it wasn't too preachy like some books on minimalism.

Simple, well written and with clear examples. I have read a bit already on minimalism but liked this book for all the reasons, suggestions and tips it provides. I will gladly reference it again in my own minimalism journey.
