"You Have Too Much Shit" downsizing self-help book Giveaway!

If you've been on Facebook or any other social media recently, you may have seen Chris Thomas's hilarious yet pragmatic little downsizing self-help book entitled "You Have Too Much Shit." Despite being able to download to PDF and other digital versions for free, I couldn't help but buy a few printed copies. Why (besides the fact that a printed book is always more fun than digital)? Because it's high time for another giveaway!

Read on below to enter...

You have too much shit book giveaway

The book paperback book starts out with:

William Morris famously said “have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful”. Well, the shit is pretty much everything else.

Funny AND true! What's really great though, is that it's so SPOT ON! Sure it's kind of a joke and uses the word SHIT many, many times, but it's actually practical and a very good reminder for us all! Don't buy so much shit!
