Our homes, offices, and live are more cluttered than ever before. A recent UCLA study revealed that American families are overwhelmed by their stuff. We are sold the idea that our things will save us time and money all while making our lives easier. But the truth is our stuff is suffocating our lives.
Clutter costs money. It devalues our home. It takes up valuable space - both physically and mentally. Clutter sucks our time and keeps us from doing the things we want to do. It's a distraction and a source of continual stress.
Big box office supply stores try to convince us that our problem is a lack of organization. We spend more money buying bins, labels, and dividers. The billion dollar self-storage industry is happy to take our money and store our stuff, costing us more than what our things are even worth.

I found this book to be of very little practical use when it comes to the actual process of decluttering.
The author uses the word "etcetera" multiple times, uses cliches and statistics, often refers to her own amazing life/home/family, and basically gives very little (if any) real, useful, and/or new decluttering ideas. An example of one useless statement (to me) is: "Purging helps give you some breathing room. It really cleans up some space and makes it easier to deal with the things you want to keep." Really? I believe the average person who wants to clean out a drawer, a cabinet, or even a room, is already well aware of the benefits of purging. I bought this book hoping to learn something new about the process.
