  • Joshua Becker — Author of THE MINIMALIST HOME: A Room-by-Room Guide to a Decluttered, Refocused Life
    The United States has at least 50,000 storage facilities—more than the number of Starbucks and McDonald’s restaurants combined. Never in history have humans had so much stuff inside their houses. One estimate cites the number of items inside the average American home at three hundred thousand. What purpose does all of this “stuff” serve? Becoming Minimalist Founder and best-selling author Joshua Becker believes that a large amount of our stuff serves absolutely no purpose—and in fact, detracts from our well being instead of adding to it. In his new book The Minimalist Home: A Room-by-Room Guide to a Decluttered, Refocused Life, Joshua empowers readers to adopt a form of minimalism that works for them, guiding them from room to room on a journey to optimize what they most value by removing anything that distracts from it. Becker has helped millions on their minimalism journey through his books, writings and online decluttering course. His unique approach to minimalism is fueled by a genuine desire to help improve others’ quality of life, as he and his wife have experienced throughout their 10-year minimalism journey. *Joshua Becker is the founder and editor of Becoming Minimalist, a website dedicated to inspiring others to find more life by owning less. The website welcomes over one million readers each month and has inspired millions around the world to consider the practical benefits of owning fewer possessions and given them the practical help to get started. He is the best-selling author of The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own. Joshua is also the Founder of two family-focused magazines: Simplify Magazine and Simple Money Magazine and the nonprofit organization The Hope Effect, which is changing how the world cares for orphans by focusing on family-based solutions.
