This would have been a great magazine article, with lots of tips that are general and common sense, but a book it does not make. The author hints at deep issues in the first three chapters, like the biological predisposition to hoard material items to ensure survival and the beginnings of very insightful categories of hoarders. Sadly, she brushes aside these issues as if overcoming them is only a matter of acknowledging them and then proceeded to give the reader a contrite list of garbage information. Buy 2-in-1 shampoo? Is this really a solution to the deep rooted psychological fears about loss and survival highlighted in the initial chapters? I can't decide if the author chickened out and didn't have the guts to write the book she really wanted to or if she googled hoarding and inserted "psychobabble" she had no real knowledge of.
This is why I say it would be a great feature article in a magazine. It touches on the general topic but doesn't offer any real solutions to the emotional component that underlies the problem. If getting organized is your problem, this book will be fine. If you actually have problems letting "things" go, this book offers nothing in the way of insight or advice.

This book contains virtually no information that a reasonable person hasn't already thought of. The writing is poor; I had to guess several times what the author intended (not too difficult because the content was so obvious, but definitely annoying). Several typos were also distracting.

If you have even reasonable ideas of what it means to get rid of excess stuff in your home and life, you really don't need this book.

I have the Inattentive type of ADD. This book has been so helpful for me but my sister who does not have ADD has found it helpful as well. People with and without ADHD must often de-clutter both their houses and their brains to get a semblance of an orderly life.

I may be wrong about this but I think that when you have ADHD, you cannot process information efficiently when your environment is a mess. I think that when your desk, your car, and your house are big cluttered, disorganized ADHD disaster areas, thinking is impossible. This is where this book comes in. The 'minimalist' concepts described in this book make organizing your life, your car, your brain... doable.

Ok, maybe there are people who thrive in a mess but I am willing to bet that most people with do not. The reason that I think this way is that my thinking process is much better since organized my home, my workplace, my car and my desk.

I now sometimes get home and before I can answer phone calls, questions from my children or my spouse, cook dinner or accomplish anything, I must de-clutter and pick up the house. I must de-clutter my house so that I can think with my brain. If the house is a total disorganized mess, I simply cannot think about anything else.

If you are like me, get this book. My goodness, it is so cheap that anyone can afford it and EVERYONE needs it!!

I was interested in getting better suggestions for decluttering my room.The reviews I read made this book sound great but after reading this disspoonting book snd looking at the dates I think the may have been one person who wrote them. I did not find anything helpful in this book. Save your money on this book.

Not sure what the author was trying to do but she didn't accomplish it with this book. As a couple other reviewers have said there was really no information that hasn't been published a thousand times elsewhere. Total waste of time.

My wife is all about keeping clean, tidy and keeping the home "show room perfect." As I'm sure we all know in today's lifestyle that can be a hard thing to do between work, family, kids and vacation. I picked up this book for her because she's always looking for new tips and good ways to assist her around the house. She was very pleased, enjoyed it and was very happy I thought of her in this way and it even made her think I was more into support this habit of hers (which I am). Good for bringing us a little closer as a family because I took an interest in something she's interested in.

Martha Sinclair has written a helpful little book that will help you clean up your house so it feels more like a home. She really gets to the heart of hoarding and identifies the cause of clutter. She helps you see that there is a difference between what you want and desire and what you need. Her philosophy is based in the concept of minimalism. First you throw out everything you don't need, then you start orgainzing each room. There is not a lot of information on storage containers except Martha Sinclair does talk about making use of the storage area under your bed. If you have never organized before then the information in this book will be useful to you. If you are looking for specific ways to organize an office you won't find detailed information here. This is just the basic facts and it can help you get from chaos to clutter free. Just be prepared to throw a lot away or think about donating to GoodWill. I personally take a bag around my apartment and toss in things I don't use or things I'm tired of. I also go through my closet and find lots of clothes to donate. So while you are decluttering you can also do a good deed.
