With the whole world trying to convince us to spend our way to happiness, we’ve been left cluttered, stressed, and unfulfilled. Author Tara Button worked in advertising until she became uncomfortable in a job that pushed people to buy things they didn’t necessarily want or need. On her 30th birthday, she was given a Le Creuset cooking pot. Every time she used this pot, she thought, “If only all my possessions were like this, I’d never have to replace anything.”
Button advocates a life of mindful buying that celebrates what lasts. Once a shopaholic, Button's mindful curation method reveals the benefits of buying for life and provides guidance on de-cluttering your home, finding the products that serve you best, and the art of keeping and caring for things.
