Good Reads

my favorite reading spot of late

Some recent goods reads, in case you missed them:

  • Type A Minimalist: Occupied
    Type A said it better than I could have. Hitting companies in the wallet is a major way to make them take notice. If we want things to change, then reexamining our current non-sustainable consumption levels is essential.

  • Simple Savvy: A Minimalist's Halloween
    Yes, I know, Halloween is over, but it's always great to see someone else questioning our holiday decorating obsession. If you enjoy decorating for holidays, then by all means continue, but if it feels more like a chore than fun, then you might want to try something different. I go with a combo approach. I love decorating the living room for Christmas, but that's it.

  • Unconsumption
    I'm totally picking up what this new-to-me tumblr is laying down. I've been devouring the archives like a fiend and already found some great gems.


  1. What a lovely reading spot! I especially like the cat. This year I didn't decorate for Halloween except for two pumpkins that I really enjoyed carving. I even brought them in on Nov. 1st to enjoy for one more evening. Then I tossed them out! I especially enjoyed not having a load of decorations to take down and store.

  2. Thanks for the recommendations! I've been looking for some good reads lately and will check these out.

  3. Christine - I hear ya, I love only hauling out decorations once per year for Christmas, rather than for every single holiday.

    Josh - Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
