Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The best-selling phenomenon from Japan that shows us a minimalist life is a happy life.

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.

Customer Reviews

A wonderful book that helped me greatly.

Fumio Sasaki guides us through the sometimes controversial philosophy of minimalism and what it does for the mind. He gives such a humble approach to his step by step, simply explained, ideas on how to simplify your life through minimalism. Because of his book I have gotten rid of all the things that I do not use on a weekly basis and I’m always analyzing on what else I can get rid of. I am clearer in my mind, I am able to enjoy simple things- which gives me more joy. I am cleaner, healthier, happier, and more humble and appreciative of the things around me. I recommend everyone read this book even if they aren’t going to become a minimalist. You won’t regret it and you will find yourself thinking twice before buying or keeping any material possessions. Thank you Fumio, I look forward to your future books if they ever come out.

Minimalism from Japan

I so enjoyed the this book coming from a Japanese perspective. I like how Fumio explains how our behaviors form, and how we as human beings associate with a brand as a status symbol. I so enjoy my Apple products when my wife wanted a MacBook Pro for her birthday back in 2010, I haven't looked back, so in the family and friends I am known as the Apple guru. I have learned from this book, how just getting rid of material objects are just a tip of the iceberg.
