Fumio Sasaki is not an enlightened expert in the worlds of minimalism or organizing; he’s just a regular guy that set about to completely transform his existence into something that didn’t include anything he didn’t absolutely need. Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism tells the story of Sasaki’s journey from maximalist to minimalist, including specific tips on the minimizing process and the author’s own humble vision of true happiness. Sasaki tackled throwing out all the things that most of us can’t find a reason to part with: full-size bed, books, all the glassware you’ve collected over the years and even your home office setup to create a truly minimal space that even a monk could appreciate for its minimalism. Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism is a hardcover tome that comes close to 300 pages (288 to be exact), measures 5.6″ x 0.9″ x 8.5″ and is currently available on Amazon.
