Simplify: 7 Guiding Principles to Help Anyone Declutter Their Home and Life by Joshua Becker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is neat, tidy, uncluttered, and pure in its message. With two babies, clutter can become a bigger problem by the day. I found this book and immediately went to work with the author’s easy techniques. Namely, 1) everything at home should have a home; 2) if an area such as a cupboard or a drawer is already jam packed with stuff, that’s a problem and that space needs help; 3) if we’re just staring at a possession and know deep down we’ll never touch it again, it should probably move out somehow (by selling it, donating it, etc.). I love how the author tells you to calm down, and handle decluttering in manageable, even enjoyable chunks. My whole family, minus the babies unfortunately, have gotten into the action. The babies are on an opposite mission, but they’ll learn sometime… far down the road. I like the stress relieving feeling of enjoying a house with visible floors, walls, counters, and space. I also like being able to find stuff when I need it. Stuff isn’t bad, but too much useless and irrelevant stuff can be.
