About the Book

Minimalism doesn't always mean a perfectly curated home that is always tidy. Messy minimalism is less about perfection and more about purpose. Rachelle Crawford lays out strategies for reducing waste, curbing consumption, decluttering, and finding lots more joy in the way that best supports your family.

Book Synopsis

"Messy Minimalism gives us permission to do minimalism our way--the imperfect way, the messy way, and, most importantly, the real way. . . approachable for everyone."--Courtney Carver, author of Project 333 and Soulful Simplicity, and founder of Be More with Less

Think minimalism means a perfectly curated, always tidy home? Think again.

Drowning in tides of toys, overflowing closets, and a crazy schedule, Rachelle Crawford assumed you had to be naturally organized to keep a tidy living space. Then she found minimalism: the messy, real-life kind, that is less about perfection and more about purpose. Thus began a journey toward decluttering her home, calendar, and soul.

With empathy, grace, and humor, Crawford--who curates the popular Abundant Life with Less site--shares doable ways to own less and live more fully. Laying out practical strategies for reducing waste, curbing consumption, decluttering, and finding lots more joy, Crawford offers no-nonsense solutions for the rest of us. Learn to become a more conscious consumer, create a capsule wardrobe, inspire family members to join you, free up more time for the things that matter, and create a tidy(ish) home. The messy minimalist way is a no-judgment zone, one in which we learn sustainable habits and grace-based practices. It's about living lightly on the earth and making room for purpose.

Becoming a messy minimalist is not about turning into someone else; it's about clearing away clutter and expectations to unearth who you really are. It's about carrying fewer things so that we find ourselves holding onto what truly matters.
