The Minimalist Mom isn't a manual for your first year with your new baby. It also isn't a long list of unnecessary things to buy. It's an intentional guide to living with less and enjoying your brand-new life with baby more. By learning how to clear the things you don't need--expensive baby gear, piles of tiny clothes, a new SUV, an overscheduled calendar--you'll be able to simply and joyfully embrace the space, time, money, and peace they leave behind.

"'Less stress. Less mess. More love' is the book's mantra. The Minimalist Mom breaks down the areas where you can minimize into three sections: home, gear and clothing, and time, and asks us to examine what we really need, while giving us examples of how to un-clutter each of the categories." --Fit Pregnancy
