Rejecting materialism and living a positive life

Prior to reading Love People, Use Things, I had not heard of the Minimalists. I expected this book to be a how-to guide on how to get rid of your excess stuff. Practical tools and advice are definitely abundant, but the overarching message is on materialism's negative consequences and how to strive towards living a positive and meaningful life. The book is divided into the following chapters: Stuff, Truth, Self, Values, Money, Creativity and People. The emphasis is on focusing energy on people, creativity, positive values, healthy relationships and giving back, rather than accumulating stuff and chasing the latest and greatest shiny new thing. The authors reveal some very personal aspects of their past lives that do not cast them in a positive light. At some point, they were both living lives that were completely out of control. I appreciated their honesty as they provided real life examples on how materialism and consumerism negatively affected them. Amassing objects to fill a void did not work for them and will not work for anyone. In some ways, this book is like a memoir. Love People, Use Things provides advice on how to critically evaluate your relationships with material goods, money and the people in your life. They include strategies for saving and managing money and really questioning the your purchases. This book was interesting, eye-opening and easy to read and will benefit so many people. @CeladonBooks #CeladonReads #partner #LovePeopleUseThingsBook
