You have too much stuff! Your closets are filled with clothes you never wear. You have not seen your kitchen counters in months. Your junk drawer has exploded into an entire room of things you don't use. How can we say that when we don't even know you? Well, because most people do and we were just like you.
In 2008 we put our decluttering and downsizing skills to the ultimate test: Get Rid of Everything we owned in order to follow our dream and travel around the world. From that experience we documented every step in the process to provide you with the comprehensive guide to decluttering your home and putting some extra cash in your packet.
How do you think your life could change if you got rid of some of the stuff tying you down? You don't have to go as far as we did, but you'll benefit from our extreme experience no matter big or small your decluttering project may be. We know decluttering inside and out, and you can take advantage of our experience to create your own clutter-free zone for relaxing, socializing, and spending time with family and friends.

Some of it is good advice but nothing new. I didn't like the narration, they sounded really condescending and it was not fun to listen to or inspiring. I'm mad that I wasted a credit on this. It is pretty short but I still only made it through 2/3 of the book.
As far as the book's content, a lot of the advice is common sense or may not be feasible for everyone. There was a lot of advice that involved selling things online, which I do (in fact I have my own business on etsy) but listing the items and taking photos takes forever and is incredibly tedious. Then there is the process of shipping or setting up pickups. It's a lot to go through for most items and then they may not sell. Saying you will make $1000s doing this is pretty misleading. They also plug a lot of products and websites.
listen to this multipke times to get me jumpstarted. great read although I'm not going to this extreme it does relieve pressure to think of living this nomadic style.
the fact that this is the first book that doesn't lecture, yeah. it is a nice, young couple explaining feelings, how to's , getting rid of in such a positive way. when you are done with the book they also mention online classes and a code to get a discount. its nice that the couple's life has changed in such a positive way from getting rid of clutter.read but don't delete because it is a book to read again because the sound of their voices (wife and husband team) is mentally uplifting.
