Throw Out Fifty Things is truly an eye-opener. According to Blanke, our lives are so filled with junk from the past--from dried up tubes of crazy glue to old grudges--that's it's a wonder we can get up in the morning, never mind go to work, care for our children and parents, and just put one foot in front of the other. Blanke wants to start a movement of people across America throwing out 50 things (magazines count as one!) that will help liberate us from the stuff - both physical and mental - that clutters our lives.

Would you consider the audio edition of Throw Out Fifty Things to be better than the print version?

Haven't seen the book but I have often bought both for reference.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Throw Out Fifty Things?

Talking about the emotional clutter is very profound

What does Gail Blanke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I buy audio because it works better for my busy life, with just the book I would probably skip over a lot and miss immportant issues.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Throw Out Fifty Things?

To just get started and don't wait until I have time to clear out everything.
