Format: Paperback
I have several books on simplifying life and organizing the home. I have found the organizing books patronizing and useless. Organization books helped me organize some of my stuff but not get rid of anything. I never really organized everything because to do so was too daunting of a task as I had too much stuff.
This is the first Don Aslett book I've read. Especially in the beginning, it is something like 95% reader's stories of their clutter and junk. It is laugh-out-loud funny. These stories are so extreme that I had to stop reading and immediately started going through my own things and getting rid of stuff. I'd go back and read more and then go back to de-cluttering. It took me 6 weeks to read the book because I have spent hours and hours de-junking my house in between. There are also some funny quizzes and poems, those that didn't interest me I simply skipped over.
The overall approach with this book is that it presents many readers's stories of what they save and collect and how they got rid of some of it. Then Aslett chimes in with his two cents and sometimes some tips on how to decide whether to save something or keep it or other words of wisdom regarding the subject at hand. Then back to this format over and over. I actually loved the format and felt that it was not preachy in nature. It was also easy to read in small bits and pieces, something nice for a busy mother like myself.
Aslett focuses on getting rid of most everything that we are not currently using or using within the last year. While I can't get that radical, it is inspirational. He deems a "collection" as anything we have three or more of, and he recommends having no collections.

Format: Paperback
This is not necessarily a how-to-dejunk book (like Clutter's Last Stand, which I HIGHLY recommend), but rather, a book of testimonials. It's stuffed with short paragraphs written by "your fellow packrats" about how they dealt with the clutter in their lives -- kind of like those before-after diet success stories you often find in women's magazines. Some of the testimonials are particularly helpful and poignant -- how to deal with stuff that belonged to a child or spouse who has died, how to deal with gifts. Aslett will have you getting rid of unnecessary gifts and memorabilia guilt-free, while saving those few things that have real value and meaning.
Some of the stories are downright amusing -- my favorite, a story by a woman cleaning out her recently-deceased grandmother's home, who found oatmeal boxes and all kinds of other boxes, even boxes in the attic, full of metal disks. She finally realized that the disks were the ends off biscuit cans -- grandma made biscuits for breakfast every day for over twenty years. A woman described her husband, who saved every school paper he ever had, because "when he's President it will be necessary for history." There are notes from a woman who saved all of the shoulder pads she had removed from her clothing, even though she looked ghastly in shoulder pads, another woman whose clothese are so tight in her closet she doesn't need hangers -- "They're just suspended there by compression."
In addition to the testimonials, Aslett includes all sorts of silly poetry about clutter that will have you laughing, poems about "The Junk Drawer" and "Purse of the American Wife.

Format: Paperback
Aslett's masterwork is CLUTTER'S LAST STAND, which I have probably read at least 30 times (I even gave a copy to my ex when we parted ways). This book CLUTTER-FREE!: FINALLY & FOREVER is full of testimonials--> but in many cases they are more than that as they show how real people have grappled with the concept of clutter, freedom, guilt, obligation, etc. I find I read different Aslett clutter books at different times, depending on my level of motivation. I definitely recommend reading CLUTTER'S LAST STAND before reading this one. Nonetheless, this is a really good read.

Format: Paperback
First, let's be blunt. Aslett got a free book out of the letters and emails sent to him by fans of Clutter's Last Stand. This book has very little Aslett and very little practical advice other than "toss it." It consists of personal stories of being a prisoner of clutter, the wilder the better.

That said, if you want to feel massively superior to people who've saved sixteen years' of National Geographics, the entire contents of the city dump, or a barn full of fluorescent light fixtures, this book is a hoot. Once you've started decluttering, read this book during your drink breaks. It's easy to put down, thanks to all the short sections, and the vision of not being like these people will keep you going.

Format: Paperback
I'm giving this book 5 stars. I know some people were disappointed that it's mostly full of testimonials and reviews of Don Aslett's earlier books. Even though there wasn't much "how-to" in this book, I found the experiences that people shared very interesting, entertaining, and even kinda scary. But, the important thing about reading the book was that it worked for me. Over the last couple of weeks I've gone through my stuff and have hauled away 2 1/2 pickup truckloads of junk. And I'm not done yet! I didn't think I had much clutter, but I found a lot. It's just wonderful to let go of things that complicate my life. I think this book has potential to inspire many people to let go of their junk, and live a more simplified life.
