Francine Jay pioneered the simple living movement with her self-published bestseller, The Joy of Less. In this fully redesigned and repackaged edition - featuring never-before-seen content - Jay brings her philosophy to more readers who are eager to declutter. Rather than the "crash diet" approach found in other tidying up books, Jay shares simple steps to cultivate a minimalist mindset and form new habits, paving the way to lasting success. Her easy-to-follow streamline method works in any space - from a single drawer to a closet, room, or entire house. What's more, it can be called upon during clutter-inducing life events such as moving, getting married, having kids, or downsizing. With an airy two-color interior design and lovely hardcover package, The Joy of Less is a refreshing and relatable approach to decluttering that belongs in every home.… (més)

Inspiring, motivational, delightful. Lightly is a lovely book. I'm looking forward to reading Francine Jay's previous books. ( )

Hilariously American and over the top decluttering advice for the upper middle class, but I really enjoyed the audiobook version and it's chipper reader as motivational background noise in my process to adjust my home to having half the number of people it used to. There is something to be said for presenting downsizing as a fun activity rather than a grim necessity. ( )

In my work trying to integrate more minimalism to declutter my messes and get rid of stuff I just don't need I decided to borrow this book on a whim. It just seemed like a good idea to read upon stuff and maybe kickstart this again to clean up a bit. Part one is more about the why and the second part discusses the how with the third part to look at it room by room.

Meh. If I had not read other works on minimalism this probably would have been something that would have served as a great introduction. As it was, this was not exactly giving me new or unique information. Other people make good points in criticisms: sometimes author Jay can be a bit rigid. Sometimes it goes a little too far: being not enthusiastic in thanking a friend for a homemade gift because of the clutter it might cause is just...strange.

The book also felt a little overly long. I'm not sure why authors feel there's a need to talk about minimalism room by room. It adds more to the book but I find it hard to understand that someone needs that much guidance if they can't extrapolate the information already. Some people just might: a recovering hoarder, someone who has genuine issues with clutter, etc. But it just seems like that might be better suited for someone to hire a personal coach to individually guide someone and/or be better able to assess the person's house/rooms.

It wasn't all that bad but it wasn't exactly an eye-opening read, either. Library borrow was best and might be a good introduction. ( )

I've been decluttering this month and decided to keep my audiobook listening on topic as I do so.

This author provides a nice view into what her minimalist life with her family is like. I also gleaned a few ideas I'll put into practice. But the heart of her process--the S.T.R.E.A.M.L.I.N.E. method is way too many steps (in addition to being a backronym, which makes some of the steps improperly/forgettable named). The idea of this method works out to something similar to the KonMari method (The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up), but has not been reduced per a true minimalist ethos to its essence.

I also found it aggravating how many times the author promised that decluttering would be fun. ( )

I've read several books this past couple years in the 'Tidying up and decluttering' genre. My favourite insights were related to dealing with sentimental and nostalgic items with mentions appearing throughout Francine Jay's book. Chapter 28 provided an in-depth discussion of this difficult category. Comparatively speaking, this volume was a johnny-come-lately in my experience and too repetitive. I preferred the presentation in 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up..." (Marie Kondo) and 'New Minimalism' (Fortin and Quilici).

However, 'Joy of Less' is very effective in repeating some of the best advice: detach yourself from the duplicated items in your living space and simplify how much 'stuff' is on display at one time. One of my favourite phrases was '...to be useful, an item must be used; that's the catch: most of us have items that are potentially useful things that we simply don't use...'. In several instances, Jay's book puts more of a North American spin on the decluttering process so I found both Kondo's and Francine's narratives worth reading, despite the repetition that irritated me in 'Joy'.
