The Year of Less

Discover why life is worth more than anything you can buy in a store with Cait Flanders, who found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. The Year of Less documents Cait’s life for twelve months during which she bought only consumables. Follow along to find out what happens when money, minimalism and mindfulness cross paths.

Along the way, she challenged herself to consume less of many other things besides shopping. She decluttered her apartment and got rid of 70 percent of her belongings; learned how to fix things rather than throw them away; researched the zero waste movement; and completed a television ban. At every stage, she learned that the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt. 

The challenge became a lifeline when, in the course of the year, Cait found herself in situations that turned her life upside down. In the face of hardship, she realized why she had always turned to shopping, alcohol, and food—and what it had cost her. Unable to reach for any of her usual vices, she changed habits she’d spent years perfecting and discovered what truly mattered to her. 

Blending Cait’s compelling story with inspiring insight and practical guidance, The Year of Less will leave you questioning what you’re holding on to in your own life—and, quite possibly, lead you to find your own path of less.

Written by Cait Flanders. Paperback.  189 pages. 21.5 x 13.5cm.

Title : not really what I expected
Comment : This book is more of an autobiography and less about tips on how to live with less. I was expecting more of a Marie Kondo approach with tips and details on how she achieved living with less. The author really just wrote about a period in her life that she went through which affected her mental state and how she got through it. I'm guessing her online blog is more to the point than this book is.
