And I absolutely regret it. Not only did I not THRIFT it, but I spent $20 on it at Barnes and Noble. It was not even in the clearance section.
It is a decluttering book and I have been eyeing it for several months now. I love me a good decluttering book. But this one? Notsomuch. Instead of telling me why I should get rid of things I don't want/need/love, it took me step by step through HER house and stuff SHE was getting rid of and was not at all inspiring me to do any more purging along the way. Simply because she was hanging on to some odd stuff for no apparent reason other than it cost a lot of money or her kids once played a steel drum and who knows when one is going to be inspired to play a steel drum again? I am sure it was therapeutic for her to write the book, but truly? Why did I have to spend $20 good dollars on it? I am so going to be passing this book on to Goodwill and just chalking it up to another lesson learned.
If you are looking for a FABULOUS decluttering book, the very best one I have ever, EVER come across is this one:
I proudly own this book (I used to borrow it from the library every few months and then came across it at Goodwill last year!) and every single time I look at it, it helps me to clear out things that are no longer useful in my life. She is the one who gave me permission to throw out massive papers and pictures from high school as well as my yearbooks. I think of her and that book several times a week, it is that good. I wish I would have bought 2 more of her books and done a giveaway on the blog with them instead of buying that other book.
Again, live and learn, right?
