Goodbye-Things-New-Japanese-Minimalism

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.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
