Amazon rushed the book to me...I immediately began reading. I was surprised it entailed "homework"...but I did everything Mark suggested. It's been a couple months now and I'm actually "seeing" the value in my treasures. Weekly, I am taking things to Goodwill, giving them to friends, and even filling my recycle bin each week.
Some things I just can't bear to give away yet - I'm ok with that. This is the first go-round. I'm sure that in a few months I'll be finished and will begin again with what I couldn't bear to let go the time around.
One of the most important lessons in the book was walking into my study, tagging 5 items with post-its, and then going back and writing on the post-its how much I would sell that item for.
WOW! To my surprise, I was holding on to 5 items that were only worth $6.25!
After that, I began looking at things differently.
We're moving next year and by then I hope to have everything packed that we truly need in our new, smaller home!
Thanks Mark (I watch you on Clean-House every single day!)
Already I'm able to "let go" of more than just the clutter and I'm ..sigh...able to breathe again. For the first time in a long time, I have stopped running to the mall to do retail therapy to escape..and I no longer base my identity and sense of self-worth on "Things".
**Be warned it is set up like a work book that you have to go through before you do anything so don't expect progress in a day or two. Good luck!
There is no "I'll need it someday" - now I am more apt to say "Just get rid of it." My husband is impressed with the progress.
With this book, I am DONE buying storage containers. There is no need for it. If I have the space for cherished things, they should be OUT in a prominent space. Otherwise, I am consolodating. This book is so empowering, I think I would be able to inspire other people. In fact I have. I bought a copy for a dear friend as a birthday present. That is how strongly I feel about the book.

OK, I knew this was not a decorating book, but more of Mark's before and after pics from the stories would have punched up the book. Read morePublished on May 4, 2014 by P. A. Hall
