Fumio Sasaki is not an enlightened minimalism expert or organizing guru like Marie Kondo―he’s just a regular guy who was stressed out and constantly comparing himself to others, until one day he decided to change his life by saying goodbye to everything he didn’t absolutely need. The effects were remarkable: Sasaki gained true freedom, new focus, and a real sense of gratitude for everything around him. In Goodbye, Things Sasaki modestly shares his personal minimalist experience, offering specific tips on the minimizing process and revealing how the new minimalist movement can not only transform your space but truly enrich your life. The benefits of a minimalist life can be realized by anyone, and Sasaki’s humble vision of true happiness will open your eyes to minimalism’s potential.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Take your spring cleaning to the next level with Goodbye, Things by Fumio Sasaki. A bestseller in Japan, this book uncovers why we want to own more than we need, what this mentality does to our well-being, and how we can live better by owning less.” Parade
“For Sasaki, minimalism isn’t about how little you have, but how it makes you feel. Sasaki credits his minimalist lifestyle with helping him lose weight, become extroverted and proactive, and above all, feel happy and grateful for what he has.” Cosmopolitan
“Inspiring in its straightforwardness and sincerity…In the end, what matters is the thoughtfulness the book inspires.” Apartment Therapy
"[A] compulsively readable primer on living with less…The book is surprisingly intimate and often reads like a memoir posing as a self-help guide as the narrative moves between Sasaki’s search for happiness and practical ways to implement lifestyle changes…By sharing his personal story, Sasaki makes his argument all the more appealing.” Publishers Weekly
“Offers consistently doable suggestions on how to pare down, with reminders that there’s no single correct answer.” Library Journal
