This was a great read! I found myself taking a lot of notes while reading because there was so much I wanted to remember and revisit. Kim shares both the “whys” and “hows” of minimalism. This inspired and empowered me to get started. Kim also shares strategies on how to keep the clutter from creeping back in your house. Definitely worth the read!
