I was disappointed in this book. I think the title is deceptive; seemed to me like all the advice only applied to packrats. His focus seemed to be on listing what items people should get rid of and persuading people to do so. What I need to know is how to make the items that I do love, use and need fit into 500 square feet when I can't afford things like an armoir, entertainment center, a real desk or custom-built this and that. THEN I would feel like my home was "clean" and "clutter-free." Unfortunately, he didn't seem to have any advice on what to do with your keepers once you've purged all the excess. There were two pages that I thought were good and that's where he made a chart of various items and their shelf lives per their manufacturers. I made copies of those two pages and will put them in my binder of organizing tips.

Not one of the best organizing, decluttering books.
