Multcolib My Librarian Heather: Simplify simplify simplify!
Annotation:Voluntary Simplicity is a movement that promotes the idea that those with the most, can make do with a little less so that those with less, may have a little more.
Annotation:We are brought up to think leftovers are a good thing, but Lippe makes a very good case for using just enough. It may not be the easy way, but it could result in less waste.
Annotation:Okay, it's a rubbish title, but the story is the thing. Learn what is possible when you do make less and live more.
Annotation:The market (and bookshelves) are now overpopulated with simple living, decluttering, and minimalist books, but this one (though recent) is a gem in its field.
Annotation:While I don't necessarily agree with counting all your possessions, this book is a good reminder to all that you actually don't NEED very much at all...

Simple living means many things to many people. It can mean voluntarily reducing your possessions to live more within your means, resist conspicuous consumption, or to reduce your ecological footprint, or it can mean working less to gain more time to spend doing the things you love.
