Although I had spent a couple years knowing that I had too much stuff, it wasn't until I read this book when I really became serious about it. My husband, who actually bought the book, did not read it until after I had. I suddenly picked up the pace and began really purging items that I no longer needed. Soon, he spent a day reading it and got on board. Since then, I have found a much fuller life by focusing on family and not on stuff. I am now able to find items I truly enjoy rather than rebuying them over and over, because my favorite things are lost somewhere in the abyss of my mess. I have to credit this book for pushing me over the edge to a more focused intentional life.

I am abnegating my possessions for the sake of the good things in my life like my church, my husband, my daughters, my family, my friends, and my writing. I am learning the joy of having more time and money for what matters by removing the stuff that doesn't.
