I have a book problem. I don’t buy a ton of books but I buy enough that there’s no way I could read them all. This one has been sitting around for a while which is a shame because it’s small, easy to read, and instantly actionable. “The More of Less” by @joshua_beckeris a book about how we (“WE” meaning Americans in most contexts) just simply have too much stuff. And ultimately since we filled our lives with stuff there’s less time for important things that have nothing to do with stuff. The part that really appealed to me is not the removal of all of the stuff but the psychology he speaks to that causes us to keep buying more stuff. With all of our experience with toilet paper last year this is a good section of the book to revisit. 😅 As you can tell this isn’t a full book summary but just the key points that stuck out to me! It’s a good book that’ll at least give you something to think about.
