Adventures in Opting Out

Adventures in Opting Out

Author: Cait Flanders Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/01/2020

I emerged from Adventures in Opting Out feeling courageous. In these pages, Cait Flanders does more than simply inspire us to live with more depth and authenticity. She gives us rare, practical guidance on reaching beyond outworn cultural norms to discover-and to follow-the adventure that is ours alone to create. Lyanda Lynn Haupt, author of Mozart's Starling. Here are some of the things Cait Flanders has opted out of in the past 10 years: * Drinking, when she decided to get completely sober, at the age of 27. * Living with debt, when she finished paying off $30,000 of it and vowed: never again * Working in an office, when she quit to work for herself. * Having a lot of stuff, when she decluttered and got rid of 80-85% of it. * Having a home, when she decided to fully embrace her nomadic lifestyle. In ADVENTURES IN OPTING OUT, Flanders offers a trail map to following her example and building a slow, mindful, minimalist life that emphasizes the beauty of the natural world, the importance of real human connection, the joys of travel, and the happiness that comes from living an intentional life in harmony with your own values. Choosing to opt out is a brave decision, and ultimately an infinitely rewarding one. But that doesn't mean it's easy. There will be hardships along the way -- relationships questioned, demons faced, addictions confronted -- but with Flanders's guidance and advice, drawn from her own journey and examples of others who have picked the road less travelled, you'll have all the encouragement and insight you'll need to build a life of purpose, fulfilment, and adventure.

The Year of Less

The Year of Less

Author: Cait Flanders Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/01/2019

Could you go a whole year without shopping? In her late twenties, that's exactly what Cait Flanders did. Despite having cleared nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, she still struggled to save money. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy, she embarked on a year-long shopping ban. The Year of Less documents the 12 months during which Cait spent money only on the essentials - food, bills, car fuel - and steadily cleared out 70 per cent of her belongings. She learned to make do and mend, imposed a television ban and researched the zero waste movement. The results were profoundly transformative: the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt. In the process of decluttering her apartment, she also decluttered her life and overcame long-held toxic habits. With advice and practical tips from Cait, The Year of Less will leave you questioning what you're holding on to in your own life - and quite possibly lead you to find your own path of less. 'For your friend who has already Kondo'd her cupboards after reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, The Year of Less will inspire them to do the same to their finances.' Metro 'What is an incredible personal journey is also a stark reminder of how materialistic many of us have become. The Year of Less will certainly change your perspective on how you spend your money.' The Independent
