"For anyone looking to declutter, organize, and simplify, author Erin Boyle shares practical guidance and personal insights on small-space living and conscious consumption. At once pragmatic and philosophical, Simple Matters is a nod to the growing consensus that living simply and purposefully is more sustainable not only for the environment, but for our own happiness and well-being, too. Boyle embraces the notion that "living small" is beneficial and accessible to us all - whether we're renting a tiny apartment or purchasing a three-story house. Filled with personal essays, projects, and helpful advice on how to be inventive and resourceful in a tight space, Simple Matters shows that living simply is about making do with less and ending up with more: more free time, more time with loved ones, more savings, and more things of beauty."--provided by

She has good ideas that I want to work toward, such as : using less plastic, having natural cleaning supplies and simplifying baby gear. I enjoyed the beginning of this book and the later chapters I skipped around to what interested me.

It was more useful than some books in that the author shared many specific examples of making do with less stuff. Might be helpful to those just building their home and adult lives.

It is very similar to the Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.
