Samenvatting

'Meet the new king of decluttering' - The Times'Take your spring cleaning to the next level with Goodbye, Things by Fumio Sasaki' - Parade'There's happiness in having less. If you are anything like how I used to be - miserable, constantly comparing yourself with others, or just believing your life sucks - I think you should try saying goodbye to some of your things'Fumio Sasaki is a writer in his thirties who lives in a tiny studio in Tokyo with three shirts, four pairs of trousers, four pairs of socks and not much else. A few years ago, he realised that owning so much stuff was weighing him down - so he started to get rid of it.In this hit Japanese bestseller, Sasaki explores the philosophy behind minimalism and offers a set of straightforward rules - discard it if you haven't used it in a year; be a borrower; find your uniform; keep photos of the things you love - that can help all of us lead simpler, happier, more fulfilled lives.

Recensie(s)

In a time of rampant consumerism, a new movement is preaching an alternative path -- one that banishes all but the most fundamental and enriching consumer products from our lives. In Goodbye, Things, Fumio Sasaki recounts his conversion from reckless hoarder to hyper-mindful consumer, and offers advice to those seeking the same simple happiness that he found in minimalism * Gear Patrol * If you've ever felt bogged down by all of the things filling your life up with clutter then this is the book for you * The Daily Want * The minimalism movement has become quite popular lately, but Japanese editor Fumio Sasaki's story of how he found greater happiness by giving up his possessions is more than just another piece of grist for the mill... the ideas and concepts are presented in a way that is both motivating and adaptable. Including photos and a list of tips, the book is physically beautiful (and minimal), as well as a fascinating read * Malcolm Avenue Review * In Goodbye, Things, Fumio Sasaki shares the lessons he learned by going minimalist... For Sasaki, minimalism isn't about how little you have, but how it makes you feel. Sasaki credits his minimalist lifestyle with helping him lose weight, become extroverted and proactive, and above all, feel happy and grateful for what he has -- Heeseung Kim * Cosmopolitan * Decluttering has become the holy grail of modern lifestyle in recent years... now extreme minimalist Fumio Sasaki looks set to take the Kondo crown with his book Goodbye, Things * Daily Mail * Take your spring cleaning to the next level with Goodbye, Things by Fumio Sasaki. A best-seller in Japan, this book uncovers why we want to own more than we need, what this mentality does to our wellbeing and how we can live better by owning less * Parade * Meet the new king of decluttering... Sasaki inhabits the radical wing of the Japanese decluttering movement, being a self-described minimalist whose method makes Kondo look demurely centrist by comparison -- Richard Lloyd Parry * The Times *
