Whoever thought so much could be written about clutter?! This book was a real blessing because it explains why we have a need for clutter of all kinds - and why it can be so painful, yet joyful to let it go. "The older you are, the more you have to de-junk. And the longer you've been junked, the happier you'll be de-junked!" It also talks to us about teaching our children to de-junk at an early age. Very, VERY helpful and practical!
You'll enjoy the wit and humor of author Don Aslett, if you never get up off the couch to put any of his MANY ideas into action. But this is also a book that starts you thinking and may prevent you from making some future mistakes when deciding if something is worth dragging into your home to claim valuable space on a shelf, in a closet, under the bed, or piled in a corner.
If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, you need this book:
1. Do you live in fear that someone you respect may someday open one of your closets? 2. Have you ever threatened bodily harm to anyone who opens a drawer in front of company?
3. Do you wait until after dark to pull your car into the garage?
4. Have you ever finally replaced a broken part -- then kept that broken part?
5. Do you live with someone who has too much junk?
This was a cute, fun read, but not as helpful as I had expected. Most of the advice he gives for getting rid of clutter is more clearly stated by other authors. However, if you want to laugh at your own clutter habits, this is wonderful fun.
