Books: Money, Minimalism & Goal Setting

I am not gonna lie, I’ve been reading a bunch! I go through phases you know. There are times when I read a lot of books and then there are times when I don’t really feel like reading.

Over the last few weeks, I read some truly impressive books and I couldn’t wait to share them with you!

Dollars And Sense

Dollars and Sense must be one of my favorite books in money ever. The book explores a wide range of everyday topics – from paying with credit cards to the pitfalls of budgeting.

The authors share results from case studies, anecdotes, and concrete advice. It’s an incredibly insightful book and even if you think you’ve got it all down, you may want to think again.

This book has definitely opened my eyes to habits of mine that I wasn’t consciously aware of. If you are into money (we all need it, so who wouldn’t be interested in the topic?!), science and all things logic then this book is definitely for you!

I gotta admit, it’s the book’s cover that caught my attention. The tagline also didn’t disappoint, “simple, stylish storage ideas for all over the house”.

I’ll soon be moving and was seeking inspiration on how to set myself up (all over again). This book offers incredibly practical tips and advice. It’s all about buying fewer things, letting go of all things plastic (where possible) and finding systems that work for you.

The book is packed with some of the most beautiful photos that I’ve ever seen. If you are a sucker for keeping things neat, minimal and plastic free – then this is your book!

Girl, Wash Your Face

I stumbled upon this book by accident. I was going through the “new releases” section in my library and the title and cover of this book caught my eye.

Rachel Hollis, the author, is the founder of the lifestyle website and I had never heard of her before. She’s huuuuge!

Anyway, this book is all about Rachel’s personal stories and struggles and how she overcame them. I wasn’t familiar with her story and background and found the book surprisingly uplifting. If you greatly enjoy quotes, uplifting books, and personal stories then this one is for you!

That was it for books that I’ve recently read and absolutely love! For more of my book recommendations head to simple living books.

Your Best Year Ever

This is, hands down, one of my favorite books on goal setting ever. In 2011 I picked up a copy of the success principles and have been a huge fan of goal setting ever since. Your Best Year Ever takes goal setting to a completely different level.

I loved this book so much that I even shared it with you on Instagram. His tips are super practical, and most importantly, a breeze to implement.

If you are a lover of setting goals and tracking your progress in a systematic manner, then this book is for you!

PS: As you know, I love reading and yet I don’t own a single book. I plan on actually buying a physical copy of this book at some point because it’s such a good one!

    “Goodbye Things” by Fumio Sasaki was a really good book I heard it on Hooopla from my library here in Austin. I recommend it for the insights into why we are minimalist and because the author talked about his fears and mistakes which in my experience you don’t always get from Japan.

    21 Lessons for the 21st Century is that last book I really loved, and I just picked up the Dalai Lama’s new book Perfecting Patience: Buddhist Techniques to Overcome Anger šŸ™‚
