Opinion

From Library Staff

This may sound like a piece of cake, but all your extra magazines only count once, same with clothes, kitchen gadgets, etc., but you will laugh and have fun doing it... and you probably can still get to 50 things. The author also helps with the emotional processing.

Really worth the read. Simple straight forward and NOT about tidying up!

If you want to free yourself from materials, thoughts, bad memories, fear and etc, this is the first book to get started. It's not only about throwing things out but also freeing yourself from the burden of things and thoughts that drown you from moving forwarded.

The premise of Gail Blanke's theory is that you can throw out fifty things and your life will change for the better. And by fifty things, she doesn't mean fifty magazines. She means fifty different categories. So that bag of mismatched socks, one thing.

Where this system is week, is that Blanke spends the back half of her book dealing with your mental clutter. Which is less effective.
