About the Author

Janet Morris Grimes writes from the perspective of a wife, parent, and employee who knows how difficult it is to balance it all and do any of it well. After downsizing from a 3,200-square-foot home to a 1,000-square-foot apartment four states away, she learned the hard way how to let go of stuff that owns you and that without a plan of action, clutter will find you. Freedom, she says, is a great place to live. The less you own, the less there is to take care of. Janet writes on a variety of topics, including faith, family, and the writing process."

I greatly appreciate the ideas written in this book. It has helped me greatly to de-clutter my home and therefore my life. It is very easy to follow and institute. I just wish I had something like this years ago.

Overflowing closets, drawers and garages are more the norm than the exception these days. This book is a good place to start if you need some motivation to start cleaning yours out. More than just telling you to "throw everything away", it explores some of the reasons behind our clutter and asks you to think through that first...VERY HELPFUL!

The chapter organization is another good part of the book. The early chapters (1-4) focus on some general topics. The rest of the chapters address individual areas of the house and address issues that are specific to that location. That organization makes it easy to use a chapter like a "training manual" for de-cluttering a particular area without feeling overwhelmed and unsure of where to start.

Finally, the book is full of tips, tricks and information (case studies) from professional organizers. All these "extras" make the information seem very doable. There is also a large bibliography with plenty of additional reading and helpful websites that reinforce all the information presented in the book. It was a quick read and a good place to start any de-cluttering project. It made me ready to get started on mine sooner rather than later!

NOTE: In exchange for writing this review, I did receive a review copy of the book.

Janet has done a great job in simplifying the process of organizing most every room in your house. She uses "Oppress The Mess" Tips and also has Case Studies of many Professional Organizers included.
Not only does she help you clear out all that clutter, she gives you the resources to decide what to actually DO with it once it is out of the space.
I can recommend this book if you are someone or know of someone who has issues with clutter.
