Could you not shop and only spend money on essentials for an entire year? I’m not sure I could, but that is exactly what author Cait Flanders did and documents in her book The Year of Less. Watch my book talk to get my perspective on the book and to even see some of the nonsensical purchases I’ve made. Then scroll down to check out the book for yourself.

Synopsis: “In her late twenties, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy—only keeping her from meeting her goals—she decided to set herself a challenge: she would not shop for an entire year.”
