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 so enjoyed the this book coming from a Japanese perspective. I like how Fumio explains how our behaviors form, and how we as human beings associate with a brand as a status symbol. I so enjoy my Apple products when my wife wanted a MacBook Pro for her birthday back in 2010, I haven't looked back, so in the family and friends I am known as the Apple guru. I have learned from this book, how just getting rid of material objects are just a tip of the iceberg.
