If you’ve ever wished you could clear out your clutter, simplify your space, and take back your life, Kathi Lipp’s new book has just the solutions you need. Building off the success of her The Get Yourself Organized Project, this book will provide even more ideas for getting your life and your stuff under control.

 

Do any of these descriptions apply to you?

You bought a box of cereal at the store, and then discovered you have several boxes at home that are already past the “best by” date.
You bought a book and put it on your nightstand (right on top of ten others you’ve bought recently), but you have yet to open it.
You keep hundreds of DVDs around even though you watch everything online now and aren’t really sure where the remote for the DVD player is.
You spend valuable time moving your piles around the house, but you can never find that piece of paper when you need it.
Your house makes you depressed the moment you step into it.

So! Whew… this was amazing and horrible all at the same time! 21 days came and went and I still have a few areas which are just a MESS! I have been able to teach my hubby a bit more about clutter though and he has been such a great sport this entire time! The guy went from being a hoarder (borderline obsessive) to helping me clean out stuff we just do not need! AND throwing out computer parts that are now worthless! Amazing!

The book itself is very easy to follow and ready through. Kathi Lipp has some tips and tricks to help you realize why you’re buying and to help you to remember in those crisis times when you WANT to buy something you really do not need. I loved it. The 21 days was fun too but I got discouraged. Sadly for the Facebook group we had off on the weekends and I think I needed a full, straight, 21 days to just get down to business. Having days off was bad for me!

But this tiny place is mostly organized, which is great because we are planning to buy a house this year! With all of this organization we will easily be able to pack up when it is time to go!

One little thing about Kathi’s books which may turn some people off: Kathi is very religious. I tend to skim these moments and if it gets too holy I will just completely skip over them entirely. I don’t mind reading some of it but it tends to get on my nerves if I feel like the rhetoric is being shoved down my throat. At times it felt that way with this book, although I know Kathi has best wishes at heart. So, mostly I just overlook the religious stuff.

This is such a cute book, and such a quick read. I definitely suggest it to everyone that needs to clean out their life!
