The spelling and grammatical errors are on every page! Frequently while reading I had to re-read the sentence to try to figure out what she was trying to say. In a few spots I never could figure it out. I would be embarrassed to publish a book with so many blatant errors!
The content of the book had me shaking my head and wondering what planet she is from every other page. She says that with the money she saved on not eating out, she was able to hire someone to clean her kitchen. This book is supposed to be about downsizing, not finding ways to spend more money! This is only one example of ways she spends unnecessary money.
Many of her 50 items were not even staying with the subject. She obviously stuck several items in there just to bring the total to 50.
With my own experience of being a wife for almost 15 years and a mother for 14, I could write a much better book than this.
She also had a bonus section on saving money on electricity. I particularly liked her suggestions for saving energy on the things that run even when we are not using them (instant-on TV’s come to mind).
Lisa Rusczyk gave me new ways to look at things I own. Armed with this new knowledge, I plan to implement one idea each day to begin downsizing.

If you want to free up time for the important stuff, do the things you love and spend time with the people you love - you will love this book!
am certain there are several that you will find helpful. I found lots of helpful hints that I am going to use .I can't wait to see how my closets look after I donate clothing no longer needed.I have too many blouses,shoes and coats that other people will be able to enjoy. How many tops, shoes and coats does one person need, anyway?
Then it's off to the kitchen to organize and downsize! Thanks Mrs Lisa Marie Rusczyk !
(Have you never found yourself needing to be reminded that just because it was a good deal doesn't mean you need to buy it?)
The extra tips for saving power were a pleasant surprise as well, for while they could just as easily have been found with a quick web search, there is no substitution for advice from someone with experience.
Definitely worth a once over to help you pare your life down to the more essential.
