      Lagom, as any Swedish fule kno, is a useful word meaning "neither too much nor too little, but just right". The story of Goldilocks can be read as a search for this elusive ideal. Or to take another example, consider this book. A person who has actually lived in Sweden and notices it at Waterstones might, at one extreme, read it from cover to cover and gush about it to all their friends; or, at the opposite end of the spectrum, they might burn Waterstones to the ground, killing a dozen people an [...]

      The Little Book of Lagom caught my eye, just as last year, The Little Book of Hygge did. While Hygge is all about comfort, Lagom is all about balance, or just the right amount. This is definitely something I could benefit from because I tend to over-do in many aspects of my life, and balance is something I’m always striving to find. There are several sections to this book. Some ideas included are saving energy around the home, re-purposing packing crates and pallets, homemade citrus cleaner, d [...]

      The Swedish lifestyle is all the rage at the moment; firstly we had 'hygge', and now we have 'lagom'. I'm a great fan of both concepts, as both are about living life more comfortably and pleasingly - savouring the little moments and making the most of what you've got. Both are terms which mean, by and large 'just the right amount', and this book will give you plenty of tips to do just that.There is great photography throughout this book, balanced with clear and easy-to-read text. The book in its [...]

      A good little book. A bit of common sense would have you doing most of the things in this book but some nice ideas nonetheless.

      First and foremost, what a calming cover?!Onto the contextPart 2: A Balanced Diet and Good Health is exactly what I needed. I'm constantly trying to improve my wellbeing and to see a section on this made my reading experience pleasurable. I particularly loved portion control page, from today on wards I will be using it as a guide. There are a lot of articles, books and magazines on health and fitness but I feel that simplicity wins. I will forever think Lagom. This book definitely makes a great [...]

      It's a new year, and that means it's time to look back over the last year and see what worked for us and what didn't. I know that something I struggled with last year was balance. My work/life balance was not at all, and I'm determined in 2018 to bring more life and less work to the balance. So while I'm still all over last year's obsession with Danish hygge (I love comfort!), this year I'm adding lagom. Lagom is the Swedish idea of trying to find balance in life. It's about living simply and w [...]

      There are a lot more uses for Goldilocks now than there used to be, even astronomically speaking, and this could be one of them, as it is a philosophy of “not too much, not too little, just right.” Having visited Sweden often, I can attest that a lot of people really do think this way. . . which is one of the reasons I visit so often.There’s tips to make your home more energy-efficient. There’s a crafts article on how to turn an old t-shirt into a tote bag, as well as other clothes that [...]

      Lagom is a Swedish term for "just the right amount". Apparently, an entire lifestyle has been built around it - living and enjoying a simpler life so that you can focus on what's really important. It endorses a more minimalistic lifestyle, including less things (declutter, repurpose, reuse) and maintaining a smaller ecological footprint. The book is divided into four parts: Home; Balanced Diet & Good Health; Healthy Work/Life Balance and Balance Your Needs with the Wider World. It contains h [...]

      Lagom (pronounced lah-gom) is a Swedish word that means “not too much and not too little, but just the right amount.”When I heard the title, I expected to be ushered into the world of philosophy and wellbeing. I visualized a book along similar lines of The Magic of Tidying Up, full of practical advice and wonderful anecdotes of life.Instead, I got DIY ideas to reuse things around the house. The book includes recipes and room storage and even draft reducers!This book was disappointing.It does [...]

      *This book was given to me by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review – all opinions are my own.*This is a great book to learn more about the Swedish concept of Lagom. This book is filled with recipes, friendly tips to live a better balanced life and DIY projects. And the best thing is, it's done in a great manner. It's nicely written, and filled with beautiful imagery and drawings. I highly recommend this book if you want to learn more about Lagom.

      This is a cute little book that you can finish in about an hour. It has cute photos, recipies and many simple but useful tips to keep your life organized and balanced through the concept of lagom. Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

      This book was a good introduction to Lagom. It has some useful tips in decluttering and making use of things you already have.

      Jackson & Larsen’s Little Book of Lagom is all about learning to live in simplicity. Lagom is a Swedish word that means 'just the right amount’. I loved the sidebar explanation for how it possibly came about, deriving from the phrase 'laget om’ or 'around the team’, used by Vikings. Lagom is a concept that can be incorporated into any and all aspects of your life, helping you to find enjoyment in simplicity. There are four parts, a conclusion, and a resources chapter. Part One looks [...]

      This book is about living a simple and balanced live by following the philisophy of lagom. It has tips about making the most of what you already have, saving energy and water, reducing waste by recycling and upcycling, shopping sustainably, and staying healthy. Most of the tips in this book are not  new for me, but it reminds me to put them into regular practice. There are a few tips that I think are not well thought through though. For example the furniture made of shipping pallets has no visu [...]
