Having been a big fan of Marie Kondo’s ‘The life-changing magic of tidying’ I was intrigued by Jay’s minimalist approach to declutter and simplify. Kondo’s approach is to judge if the item sparks joy in you; Jay’s approach challenges readers to further eliminate the physical stuff filling up the space, to open up space in mind. Very helpful to keep me motivated to pursue minimalist lifestyle.
