If you have been looking for help to get some of the clutter out of your home this book is a good place to start. You will learn it’s possible to get rid of things and survive even though you feel you cant bear to be parted from them. Written in a down to earth style and filled with experience-based tips this might be the book to make you see there is hope after clutter. I found this book a little repetitive after a while which isnt necessarily a bad thing. Even though you may know these things (and/or ignoring them??) it doesnt hurt to be reminded now and again. The repetition may help reinforce action for some clutterers and get them through to action! Two tips have stayed with me. One is to purge the easy stuff eg what visitors would see if they walked in and the other is to put away items where you would expect to look for it. Over time I have even surprised myself by having a bigger clean up than I would normally do. PS Yes, I confess to hanging on to items for exactly the same reasons as the author. I dont want to become one of those old people who make their home a fire hazard! Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a free digital copy of this book in return for an honest review.
