In the context of a happy life, a messy desk or a crowded wardrobe is a trivial problem - yet Gretchen Rubin found that getting control of our stuff makes us feel more in control of our lives.
Ask yourself: DO I NEED IT? DO I LOVE IT? DO I USE IT?
With 150 concrete clutter-clearing ideas, insights, strategies, and sometimes surprising tips, Gretchen tackles the key challenges of creating outer order by explaining how to 'make choices', 'create order', 'know yourself', 'cultivate useful habits' and, of course, how to 'add beauty'.
At home, at work, and in life, when we get our possessions under control, we can create a more serene environment. With a sense of fun, and a clear idea of what's realistic for most people, Gretchen suggests dozens of manageable steps to help us achieve the lives we yearn for.
