You Can Buy Happiness (and It’s Cheap)


Yesterday, I shared some exciting news with my email subscribers! As most of you know, I’ve been working on a print book for the last year and a half. It’s hard to believe I’ve been working on this project for so long. The writing process has been incredibly rewarding and challenging.

My book, You Can Buy Happiness (and It’s Cheap): How One Woman Radically Simplified Her Life and How You Can Too,” will be released in September 2012. In addition, it’s been listed on amazon.combarnesandnoble.com, and indiebound.org so you can pre-order the book!

What's the book all about?

Here's a quick summary . . .

"While the new field of happiness research makes headlines, and the 99% face austerity at every turn, blogs like The Art of Nonconformity, Zen Habits, and Miss Minimalist attract millions looking to find more happiness, community, and fulfillment in less stuff, less debt, and less wage-chasing. Tammy Strobel and her husband are living the voluntary downsizing — or smart-sizing — dream and here she combines research on well-being with numerous real world examples to offer practical inspiration. Her fresh take on our things, our work, and our relationships spell out micro-actions that anyone can take to step off the getting-and-spending treadmill and into a life that’s more conscious and connected, sustainable and sustaining, heartfelt and happy."

Edits . . .

I’ll be an editing machine over the next two weeks because I have received edits back from the copyeditor at New World Library. My editor has a keen eye and has made dozens of detailed suggestions that will make the book much stronger. I’m thankful to have his help.

I can’t wait to send the book out into the world this fall! At the same time, I’m terrified. Terrified that you'll dislike the book and that we won't catch all the errors.

With that being said, I couldn’t have done this without your support! Thank you for reading along and sharing in this wonderful journey with me!

With gratitude,
