Summary
As a 20-something trying to launch her adult life and her writing career, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumer cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly £20,000 in credit-card debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy - only keeping her from meeting her goals - she decided to set herself a challenge: she would not shop for an entire year. 'The Year of Less' documents a year of Cait's life during which she bought only consumables: gas, toothpaste, soap. Along the way, Cait challenged herself to consume less of many other things besides shopping. At every stage, she learned that the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt
