Rather than trying to “keep up with the Joneses,” try to “keep up with the person you want to be.”

“Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it.”
Joshua Becker, Simplify: 7 Guiding Principles to Help Anyone Declutter Their Home and Life

“There is more joy to be found in owning less than can ever be found in organizing more.”
Joshua Becker, Clutterfree with Kids: Change your thinking. Discover new habits. Free your home.

“We were never meant to live life accumulating stuff. We were meant to live simply enjoying the experiences of life, the people of life, and the journey of life - not the things of life.”
Joshua Becker, Simplify: 7 Guiding Principles to Help Anyone Declutter Their Home and Life

“Overscheduled children lose the space to simply be with themselves and learn the art of being alone. In our noisy, busy world, the importance of developing the life skill of solitude, meditation, and quietly being with oneself can not be overstated.”
Joshua Becker, Clutterfree with Kids: Change your thinking. Discover new habits. Free your home.

“Your life is far too valuable to be wasted on the life that everyone else is choosing.”
Joshua Becker, Inside-Out Simplicity
