This review is from: Discardia: More Life, Less Stuff (Kindle Edition)
I agree with all the reviews who describe the book as engaging, purposeful, motivating, and enjoyable! Reading it felt like I was having a cup of tea with the author. Interesting that it's defined in the self-help genre. I suppose it is, but it certainly doesn't feel like a softer version of Dr. Phil! Absolutely delightful, but more importantly, thought-provoking, and, did I mention, motivating? The book has inspired me in more ways than I have room to describe, from getting rid of clothes that are no longer my style, but too expensive to let them go (I did!!!), to completely remaking my home office by replacing the bedroom furniture I used to "make-do" with functional, attractive home office furniture (cost less than $150). I'm amazed at the increased productivity that has come from working in an office that fits my style of working, as well as my personality. I'm a well-organized person, but the memories associated with "stuff" made me hang onto it. Dinah helped me see that I could maintain the memories without needing to keep the accompanying items. For example, I had a thick file of Playbills and programs from concerts and artistic events. I wrote an email to my husband and kids, asking them to go down memory lane with me as I listed each of the events with dates and comments. Now that I have a one-page list in a file on my computer, I was able to throw away a 6-inch thick file folder of paper that had no importance beyond the memories it evoked. I don't mean to sound gushy, but this book has helped me see how the stuff I have accumulated was blocking my path to the life I want to live. Consequently, I've changed the name of my "to-do" list to my "to-be" list.
