The reviews are correct, it will get You in motion and looking at Your home and possessions in a whole new light. I walk around thinking about what to get rid of next and not buying anything that will take up space. If I could exchange all the unused items I have for time with family and nice meals/concerts...that's the kind of thinking this book gives. You will look at everything differently. I don't want much for Christmas because there's not much I want (learn to distinguish want from need, I need new shocks & struts). I was letting wants get in the way of needs. This book will help You save time, money, and space. If followed it will provide sanity. I had long wanted a place to sew but didn't know where that place could be - I have it now. I went through all my kitchen plastics and matched up lids, anything w/o a lid had to be recycled. Now the cabinet is more spacious and I get leftovers put away in a flash. There were times I wouldn't put things away b/c I didn't want to deal w/ finding a place for them. That was a sign I had too much stuff. I'm getting rid of stuff and setting a do-by date for things I haven't gotten to yet. If not done by that date they're gone. No need to keep craft paints around if I'm not painting. This prompts me to do things I've been meaning to do and not be out shopping for things I don't need. The book works if You take the time to pick it up (grab a pen!) and go through each exercise. My boyfriend is a neat freak and this book helps me be more like him. I still have a junk drawer (sorry Mr. Walsh, I'm Southern, I must have a spot for batteries, flashlights, etc.) so don't worry about losing Yourself completely. This book changed how I look at my desk and workroom at work, and at home my bedroom, closets, and yes, even the bathroom.Read more ›

I think Peter Walsh is a riot. First started watching him on TLC's Clean Sweep and followed him to Oprah and bought his hardcover It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff and Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?: An Easy Plan for Losing Weight and Living More. Peter gives practical advice with humor and makes you look at your "stuff" wtih new eyes. This workbook is a companion guide to his hardcover It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff.

Part I focuses on the state of your house and general clutter and then narrows to a room by room analysis. Part II shifts to maintenance and how to keep clutter from coming back. Much of the book is common sense, but Peter asks questions from the simple: Do you know where your TV remote is? Are you being taken over by plastic grocery bags? How many magazines are in your house? to the heavier ones like have you unpacked all boxes from your last move? Do you have a storage facility? When was the last time you visited the facility? Do you know what is in your unit?

This book is interactive follow up to It's All Too Much. For instance, Peter goes through "excuses" again and has you write down answers to things like Excuse 1-I might need it some day. Then you write down the things that you keep that you might need someday. Simplistic, but if you use this as a tool you can begin to see patterns emerging. It forces you to look at your home and more importantly decide what you want that home to be. With the tools Peter offers to declutter your home, you can begin to focus and mold your home into your dream home!

This would be fine as a stand-alone book, but is basically the original with space added for notes. If you already have the original book, save yourself some money and buy a spiral notebook instead. But if you like to be spoon-fed or want no excuses not to start, this could be for you.

This is a great book to read with your family. After reading this book I have a new perspective on how I look at my stuff. This is a must read for someone who does not understand their partner's need to hang on to "stuff." This book has really changed my life. While I am still working on the processes described in the book, I have already adopted the mentality to keep my life uncluttered. Just like he says, if it takes you 10 years to accumulate stuff, you can't expect to de-clutter in a weekend. This book teaches you the small ways to attach the large problem of your possessions controling you. If you have ever thought that your clutter is all to much, this book is for you.

If you have read his other book, It's all too Much, then this is also a good bet for you. It's basically assessing what you have and then making the plan to either use it or lose it. It's a good tool to have when you are planning on getting organzied. I also recommend It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff.

I had about 7 of these organizing books and visited an infinity of organizing websites over the years. Peter Walsh begins, executes, and ends on a spiritual level, which resonated with me. This seems irregular from an organizing perspective, but this is what I needed to get my whole entire life in order. I purchased this book to get my house in order. 1.5 years later, EVERYTHING in my life is approaching order and clarity, including work, relationships with husband, children, friends, family, car, personal aspirations, body (exercise and nutrition). My physical health has immensely improved, saving me lots of $$ in physician and medication bills, time, and discomfort. My mental health is more stable and positive. I now have more room in my home, work, leisure time, and spirit to enjoy the things that make me feel inspired and well. I also really appreciated the practical and relevant resources Walsh offered, such as places and their websites where I could donate gently used items. Thank you Peter Walsh!!!!!
