內容簡介


◎《華爾街日報》暢銷書,《紐約時報》、《Vogue》、《富比士》、《環球郵報》等各大媒體好評報導
◎這是關於作者如何獨自戰勝酗酒、暴飲暴食、衝動購物等成癮問題,並開啟新生的動人故事

一年不消費,人生會發生什麼事?
答案是:多出50萬元、減重13公斤、出了一本書, 以及找回快樂的自己。


不論物質、事業和人生,我都樣樣不缺了,
卻總覺得哪裡還不夠,永遠沒有滿足的一天…
凱特從不覺得每個月花掉超過九成的收入有什麼問題,她消費都是為了讓自己「感覺更好」、「成為更好的人」。直到一次在教訓小妹亂花錢時,她才驚覺:幾乎月光的自己根本沒有好到哪裡去!

她決定在二十九歲生日那天,開始為期一年的「不消費實驗」。凱特原本只希望能多存點錢,也懷疑自己能不能撐過這一年,沒想到,這段經歷卻大大顛覆了她的生活,以及對自己的認知!

原來,潛藏在她毫無節制消費習慣背後的,是一個個被忽視已久的巨大心靈黑洞,這也是導致她過去暴飲暴食、戀愛不順甚至酗酒的主因…
凱特坦率記錄了陷入情緒低潮、最終跨越障礙擁抱重生的歷程。真誠的故事不只感動無數讀者,更激勵他們投入屬於自己的「不消費實驗」,認真審視購物到底是為了「需要」、「想要」,還是「逃避真實的自我」?
既然追求再多也無法滿足,不如反過來,別再擁有更多。

Could you go a whole year without shopping?


In her late twenties, that's exactly what Cait Flanders did. Despite having cleared nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, she still struggled to save money. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy, she embarked on a year-long shopping ban.

The Year of Less documents the 12 months during which Cait spent money only on the essentials - food, bills, car fuel - and steadily cleared out 70 per cent of her belongings. She learned to make do and mend, imposed a television ban and researched the zero waste movement.

The results were profoundly transformative: the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt. In the process of decluttering her apartment, she also decluttered her life and overcame long-held toxic habits.

With advice and practical tips from Cait, The Year of Less will leave you questioning what you're holding on to in your own life - and quite possibly lead you to find your own path of less.

'For your friend who has already Kondo'd her cupboards after reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, The Year of Less will inspire them to do the same to their finances.' Metro

'What is an incredible personal journey is also a stark reminder of how materialistic many of us have become. The Year of Less will certainly change your perspective on how you spend your money.'
