The Year of Less by Cait Flanders
(Hay House, $24)
In her late 20s, the author made the decision to not shop for an entire year. Why? Because she wanted to discover what truly mattered to her in life. This book
documents her life during that time, and tells us how she got rid of 70 per cent of her belongings and aimed for zero waste. There’s an important lesson
in there for all of us.
