About the Author
CARY TELANDER FORTIN specializes in the psychology behind decision-making and attachments, as well as connecting with new organizations who can benefit from clients' donations. She graduated with honors from Dartmouth College with a degree in psychology.
KYLE LOUISE QUILICI specializes in creating beautiful spaces using the items clients already own and love. She graduated from Boston College with a degree in organizational behavior, studied interior design at Parsons School of Design in New York and earned her certificate in sustainable design from UC Berkeley's Extension.
Together as NEW MINIMALISM, Cary and Kyle have conducted hundreds of decluttering sessions and as a result they have donated over 10,675 cubic feet of clothing, art supplies, furniture, and decor to local charities; that's the equivalent of over 427 bath tubs.

sentimental items I keep — both at home and in my work office — are truly looked at by me once or twice, and then, most are saved in drawers, cabinets, or plastic bins. I’ve begun the New Year with taking 4 bags full of donations to Salvation Army — feels so freeing and helps me to really ‘see’ what I love about my home so much. Thank you Cary and Kyle for articulating in your book with such understanding and acceptance. I just bought more copies of your book for several of my friends!
I also found the photos inspiring and a kind of visual example of "what's possible" for every room of my house. As suggested, I've started the decluttering process with my bedroom closet. I am happy to write that, for the first time I can ever remember, I can actually see spaces between each clothes-hanger. There is a physical and emotional lightness I feel every time I get dressed in the morning now...I feel so serene and balanced as I start each day. I had no idea that a crammed closet space could cause me so much unnecessary stress!? For so many reasons, I am grateful for the impact this book has already made on my life. Thank you for designing such a thoughtful gift of love and meaning for all to read :)
My new wish is that I can have you over to my house to take pictures for your second book!
