Celebrating One Year of Simplify

One year ago, we released Simplify: 7 Guiding Principles to Help Anyone Declutter Their Home and Life on the Amazon Kindle. By the end of the day, it was the #1 Self-Help book on Amazon. Eventually, the book would sell over 20,000 copies. It continues even today to inspire people to live more life by owning fewer possessions.

To celebrate its one-year anniversary, we have decided to offer Simplify for $0.99 for the next 10 days.

Simplify provides the inspiration and practical help to encourage you to simplify your home and declutter your possessions. Ultimately, it argues you will find more life by choosing to live with less. You’ll find more time, energy, and finances to pursue your greatest passions. And you’ll experience a new freedom by owning less.

The book retells our story of finding minimalism and the most important lessons we learned during the journey. But more importantly, it provides the motivation for you to begin your own journey towards a better life. It invites its readers to discover a new life-giving truth. And it will likely change the way you live the rest of your life.

It has received praise from countless readers:

  • Leo Babauta called it “a must-read.
  • Albany Times Union said, “If you’re looking for specific advice on how to live well with less, this book is worth a look.
  • Tanna Clark, a professional organizer wrote, “I absolutely love Simplify! It is a simple, straightforward guide that brings new light to the term minimalist.”
  • In just the past 10 days, Roey Brecher and Ahmet Alp Balkan have offered significant praise.

I’d love for you to join the movement and purchase a copy of the book today. It can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords for only $0.99. Remember, after 10 days, it will return to its regular price.


If you have read the book and found it to be valuable, your Amazon recommendation is super-helpful. It helps potential buyers make informed decisions. Also, take a moment and share this offer with others via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or e-mail. From the very beginning, the only promotion this book received has been word-of-mouth.

If you do not have a Kindle, you can still read the book by installing the free Kindle software on your computer, tablet, or mobile device. It’s super-easy. And generally speaking, allows for less expensive book buying.

    My life is already pretty simple. I’m not sure I need the book, but at $0.99 I think I’ll buy it anyway just for inspiration and to support the cause. Thanks for all of the free inspiration that you offer here on your blog.
