After amassing $30,000 of credit card debt and developing compulsive eating, drinking, and shopping habits, author Flanders found herself moving back to her parents’ home. Deciding that the time had come for some radical changes, she adopted a shopping moratorium for one year. She only purchased necessary supplies or items that had to be replaced. During that year, she began to eliminate negative and wasteful lifestyle habits, focused on saving and reducing her debt load, and, in the process, discovered what really mattered to her. This book describes her mindful journey from addictive consumerism to contentment in living with less, offering helpful suggestions for those who would like to simplify.
