    Frugal, Detailed, and Resourceful!

    Jamie Novak's style of organization has an inspiring twist that has unfortunately been forgotten by many of my generation. She put resourceful ideas in that have been handed down in my family from the Great Depression. At the same time, she gives an understanding, gentle push that helps the organizer-to-be pare down items (without replacing them) in a way that enacts good stewardship of the planet God gave us. I love this book!

    Helpful Hints: Jamie gives specific websites, organizations, and locations in order to get past the excuse, "I don't know where to get this stuff done."

    It's About More Than Stuff

    The writing style in Stop Throwing Money Away reminds me of the kind of conversation you would have over coffee with a good friend, someone who would listen without judgment. The book is fun to read, gives lots of great tips, and provides a wonderful resource for how to make some money 'letting go' of your stuff.

    Beyond that, the book describes sound ecological principles and in the mind of the reader it brings about an awareness of how much our desire for stuff has an impact on the planet.

    But most importantly, the author gently prods us to question what our stuff means at the deepest level. What are we really hanging on to when we hang on to our stuff? Or continually accumulate more? For those who want to explore the answer to that question, Stop Throwing Money Away is a great place to start.
