Make Space by Regina Wong

I will definitely be buying this book! It is full of helpful tips about decluttering, meditation, gratitude and, generally living a more peaceful life.  I especially found the sections about decluttering books and paper useful. It is hard to keep only those books that you love and will reread when you have a whole lot of unread ones, however! Wong probably doesn't say anything new about decluttering but she does tell you how she deals with 'stuff' and I liked her suggestions.

She even has a section on budgeting which can be summarised by Oscar Wilde's advice: 'When you only have two pennies left in the world, spend on on bread and the other on a lily.' He valued the need to eat, but he also wanted beauty.  Wong sets out how to budget in a minimalist manner.

I also liked the sections on finding one's passion and putting all the advice together. Wong's story of how she found her passion is interesting and I also liked her advice about letting go, dealing with stress and considering the worst that can happen.  She also provides a useful list of resources and notes.

I received this free ebook from Edelweiss in return for an honest review.
