Publisher's Summary

Why is it that even the most disorganised person never seems to lose their toothbrush?

How can this simple fact solve all our clutter problems?

The Toothbrush Principle is a simple yet inspired approach to de-cluttering your home. Whether you live in a mansion or a bedsit, this book will show you how to: organise according to the unconscious blueprint that naturally tidy people have, so that getting and staying organised is easy; know what to throw away with confidence; set up your wardrobe so you get much more use out of the clothes you have; work from home productively in a clear, designated space; tame your inbox!

Step-by-step, room-by-room, you'll soon find that you hardly ever lose things, massive clear outs become a thing of the past and you never spend more than 10 minutes a day tidying up.

So stop drowning in piles of clutter, learn how to be organised and start creating space to live out the life of your dreams!

INSPIRATIONAL, FUN, STRUCTURED AND PRACTICAL!

If you could sum up Banish Clutter Forever in three words, what would they be?

Thanks Sheila! I feel I agree so much with all you say! Very intelligent approach. After Marie Kondo's book I needed exactly this kind of book. The purpose here is more functional which is perfect. We dont want to declutter to appear in a decoration magazine but for making our lifes easier among other things. Sheila nails it. Marie Kondo is good but has a more kind of simplistic and at the same time spirittual-energetic approach, she even gives soul to unanimated objects, which is good but a bit too much for me. Sheila instead is so realistic and practical. Structured and to the point. Very good and motivating book.

What did you like best about this story?

I like that it is enjoyable and helpful at the same time. I like her approach, functional and practical.

What does Lucy Scott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I loved listening to her. She puts emphasis where it is needed. She does a fantastic performance here and also in Marie Kondos book. Congratulations Lucy! I will buy other books if she is the narrator

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Unfortunately I cannot do that because of lack of time.

Any additional comments?

I would add a a couple of strategies more. I bought another book recommended by the author. I am reconsidering now not only decluttering and which things I keep and how should I oranise myself but also I have reviewed my style for envisioning more clearly who I want to become and what are the steps I need to do for a more minimalist life.

The best book on the subject I've read.

Very well read with excellent well thought out strategies. This is a real book, not one of those thrown together get rich quick guides. I highly recommend this if you want to make progress in living an organized life. I've made a start and it seems to be working for me.

Absolutely loved it.

Its full of all the lessons I needed to hear, gently delivered by the most wonderful voice artist. You have humour and honestly and so much 'permission' to be yourself AND get rid of stuff. I think Ive listened to it 10 times already. Brilliant.
