This one was a DNF for me. I didn't get very far into it, so I won't leave a rating. I found much of the content to be repetitive, or in page-long spurts that weren't very interesting. It felt as if I was reading some never-ending prologue, forever out of reach from content worthy of just comfortably reading.

I will say that I liked the author's perspective on the amount of time we have lessening as we age. Though we might have loved all our things when we were younger and had more time for them, now we have to pick and choose. All those things we don't have time to use but still keep because we, theoretically, never stopped liking them- they're burying the things we want to invest our time and attention in today.

That logic helped me let go. I decided to finally give away the ocarina I'll never have time to learn to play, and all my fishkeeping supplies. Fish are gorgeous to look at, sure. But they dont add enough to my life that I want to be burdened with the cost and time of upkeeping my own tanks. I get more pleasure from cross-stitching while I watch a movie, getting lost in the pages of a sprawling fantasy, or gaming at midnight with friends.

Part of this new adventure in respecting my time has been knowing when to put a book down. If it doesn't capture my attention, there are dozens of soon-to-be favorites just waiting on the shelf.

Thanks to Don Aslett for the fresh perspective.

Every time we're ready to plan a reno, I take this book out from the library and reread it. The book is dated(written for early eighties decor) but I always find it helps me focus on creating a easy to clean space. With five kids, that is one of my big priorities.

n idiot's guide to clearing clutter which looks at why and how it is created and how more productive a life can be without it. The book provides a light hearted approach but no staggering insights included. I did pass it on as soon as I had read it, so maybe it did help.
