To that end, the author delivers more than 150 clutter-clearing ideas to get one's possessions in order. The benefits of achieving organization are many, including fostering peace within relationships and a sense of possibility. Tips for decluttering consist of assigning each day a task, using hooks instead of hangers, and being cautious of promotional giveaways. The beauty of this book is its brevity and practicality. Readers can easily pick and choose methods that make sense to them, while preventing unnecessary items from accumulating in the future.
VERDICT Rubin's many fans will flock to this title, as will anyone seeking a quick and easy fix to the persistent problem of clutter.
