I saw this book at the library. Checked it out. I read a chapter and thought I really like how she writes. It's informative, engaging, and reassuring that I'm not alone in my chaos.
I started on the room that bothers me the most just like she recommends. My dreaded game room. A huge task and no small undertaking but within a week I feel so good about the process made. The kids and I only worked a few hours in the evening because of schedules but seeing the progress gave us the oomf we needed to keep going.
What I like best about this book is how I don't have to come up with the strategy myself. I just don't have the brain power to do that. I'm so tired and this author knows that. She point blank says how to handle each item in a way I've not seen explained before.
She doesn't just say make a decision to keep, donate or trash. She explains how to come to that decision. She gives expanded thoughts behind how to come to a decision that takes away any guilt I usually feel about throwing something out or donating it. Those two things are what really set her apart from other organizing books.
In fact, as I read aloud to my husband, who is frugal by nature and realizes my bookshelves are packed with books so much that books are on the floor in front of them...he said why don't I buy the book so I don't have to keep going to the library to continually check it out. I've tried quite a few organizing books, purchased and borrowed, and none have inspired as much as this one. My husband can vouch for that.
