Summary
In her late twenties, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy -- only keeping her from meeting her goals -- she decided to set herself a challenge: she would not shop for an entire year. The Year of Less documents Cait's life for twelve months, during which time she bought only consumables: groceries, toiletries, gas for her car. Along the way, she challenged herself to consume less of many other things besides shopping, decluttered her apartment and got rid of 70 percent of her belongings. Blending Cait's 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
Summary
The author decides that for twelve months she will only buy consumables, consume less of many other things, declutter her apartment, get rid of 70 percent of her belongings and learn to repair things as opposed to tossing them away.
