There are a lot of books out there on how to declutter your life. Is this the best one on the market? That depends on what you're looking for. If you want soul-searching advice or spiritual guidance as you empty out that junk drawer, then this is not the book for you. But if you just want a lot of ideas you can put to use quickly and easily, you might want to consider this book.

This book wasnt alot of help. Just not meaty enough to tackle our problems. I am not saying you wont find good stuff in here because you do. Just not enough I feel. Here are some other ideas I hope you find helpful from what I have learned being a de-cluttering junkie.
First I have been working diligently on de cluttering my personal and business life. I have read so many simplifying and de-cluttering and efficiency books I almost have a clutter problem with all the books on the subject. (Cured that recently too with the Kindle 2.)
I run three business. One brick and morter and two online. I was getting over four hundred emails a day and was drowning in mail and spam. So I utilized ideas / suggestions from several sources to cure my problems. From the Four Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss we started using detailed faq's lists on our websites and an auto-responder that answered many questions so we would no longer have to reply to as many emails. For the ones we do answer the questions are predictable and we saved the answers as email drafts that way we just cut and paste and all done.
For the Spam we ran our eight email accounts into one google mail as they have the best spam filters and you can reply from the email address to which the mail was sent so they dont know that anything is happening. And suggestions from the life hacker Upgrade Your Life: The Lifehacker Guide to Working Smarter, Faster, Better by Gina Tripani has some interesting ideas for sure.
Keeping your inbox empty we use suggestions from Stress Less and Zen to Done by Leo Babauta and you would not believe how much better you feel when things are under control. But it is you who must Work the system or you will be overwhelmed again.

I just moved into a tiny apartment and brought with me this book, which had helped me with my "spring cleaning" a few years ago. The organizing tips helped me tremendously to configure my new space -- highly recommended for anyone who wants to ban OR prevent clutter.

Is your house groaning with stuff? And do you continue to buy more? Our things, say these authors, can easily become a burden - much like extra weight on our bodies.

The solution, however, while simple for some, can be quite daunting for others. Like a diet, it requires an examination of our impulsive behaviors and emotional attachments to objects. Room-by-room, though, we can regain control of our homes - and our lives. The authors show us how to do that, in sensible and timely ways.
