“My goal is no longer to get more done, but rather to have less to do.”
Francine Jay, Miss Minimalist: Inspiration to Downsize, Declutter, and Simplify

“Your home is living space, not storage space.”
Francine Jay

“Remember, the things with which we choose to surround ourselves tell our story. Let’s hope it’s not “I choose to live in the past,” or “I can’t finish the projects I start.” Instead, let’s aim for something like, “I live lightly and gracefully, with only the objects I find functional or beautiful.”
Francine Jay, The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your Life
