From Publishers Weekly
"Organizational consultant" and bestselling author Walsh (It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff) brings his less-is-more philosophy to weight loss in a guide that, ironically, proves bloated with unnecessary anecdotes and repetition. Most of Walsh's tried-and-true advice boils down to simple thoughtfulness, embodied in familiar exercises such as re-organizing your kitchen and pantry, making realistic meal plans you can stick to and "being present in the moment" while eating. Frequently admitting that he's no nutritionist, Walsh succeeds more as a cheerleader and coach; the book is overstuffed with anecdotes and accolades from fans who ostensibly encouraged Walsh to bring his clutter-cutting approach to the waistbands of America. Would-be dieters looking for a place to start will likely benefit from Walsh's straightforward style and the many worksheets and quizzes included, but those serious about making long-lasting dietary and lifestyle changes would probably be better served by an author with some degree of expertise in health and nutrition.

Now I look at "things" and value them differently.
If your clutter has taken over your life and left you too exhausted to be healthy, take time to read Peter Walsh's books. It might just make a big difference.
Edited much later to say that I've found it much easier to 'let go' of things, a very good feeling. I haven't missed anything I've let go of, but it is making my life easier. I think of it as streamlining my life to make it easier to do the things I want to do without being bogged down with 'things' that get in the way. I give credit to the Peter Walsh books for encouraging me to do what I already knew I needed to do.
This book was more of a diet book, with suggestions for eating smarter and healthier. Much of it is just common sense but it's always good motivation to hear it again. There's one section where he talks about getting rid of all the old diet books that used gimmicks that didn't work and that you still have sitting around. I thought that was good advice. Another thing he talks about is getting rid of all the old exercise videos and machines that aren't being used. Now that was something I didn't want to do, although I had to admit that what he said made sense, they do take up a lot of room. So that motivated me to start using them (Would you believe I have exercise videos that are 10 years old that not only have I not tried, but the clear wrapping is still on them?) After not using all this stuff for so long, it was like Christmas again, realizing all the cool stuff I have that was almost like new!
This book is worth reading, but do try Enough Already as well. That one got me cleaning out drawers and doing some big time organizing.
