About this deal

I didn’t implement it like it should have been though, probably because I don’t really have that level of clutter in my home. My takeaway is a sense of renewed motivation and plans for working at my goal smarter and not harder. I’m not a minimalist, and though it sounds like maybe she leans more that way, it’s a relief to find decluttering advice that doesn’t assume my end goal is to achieve a minimalist aesthetic.

But I can see someone sticking to it and being able to get their living spaces to a pretty nice condition. Her system is great for someone (like her former self) who just doesn't understand how they acquired so much stuff and why they can't keep it all. I thought this was interesting because I figured it would be best to clear a space and move to the next space. If you feel like traditional cleaning and organizing advice is written in a language you never learned, you're exactly the person for whom I wrote this book.

So if you are a real person with a real home I reckon you would find this book helpful, as well as encouraging and funny! Her previous book, How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind: Dealing with Your House's Dirty Little Secrets is about how to deal with "the daily stuff," as she puts it. Her systems and questions can help anyone, whether you just have one embarrassing room or whether your house is floor to ceiling with excess stuff. It went room by room following the same basic approach and considered each room’s unique challenges. I think it would benefit from being severely chopped down to a smaller, more affordable book that takes less time to read, though, especially as it really comes down to a very small amount of very good advice.

Maybe its an indication that I really am on the verge of being contained and organized that I’m pretty sure I’m secure in the knowledge of what I own and where it lives.I realized that I never wore the huge, bulky, hand-made, six-foot gifts because they made me feel like a hippopotamus. I am so excited to officially announce that my next book, Decluttering at the Speed of Life, will be released on February 27th, 2018! She also covers the guilt of keeping something put away that was gifted by a good friend or relation when you don't really like it and/or don't ever use it. But I can say that the book is clear, and that the repetition that happens with each room can be annoying, but also great if you don't want to leaf back to the stepping point of decluttering.
