The family and I are finally off on our rescheduled two-week trip to Europe after a major passport fail this summer. Using a stick or a cuticle pusher, gently push back the cuticles and work around them using selected bits. Breaks the de-cluttering exercise down into small chunks with lots of suggestions as to how to start the process and stay de-cluttered.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. But it’s a slow one, it’s hard to find the time or the motivation to do it and even harder to then get the stuff out of your house. And frankly, as I sat on the 10+ year old couches, that used to live in my parents basement, while wearing my husbands ratty old college sweatshirt (that is so damn comfortable you’ll have to pry it from my cold dead hands) I realized I’d need to take the rest of the book with a grain of salt.

When other moms asked how I got by without “all of the things,” I showed them, and that’s how my business was born.

For example, I bought a wool pottery barn rug 18 years ago and it still looks lovely to this day under my dining room table. There's even a section on how to handle the possessions when someone has passed away which was very helpful to me, as I am still downsizing and decluttering after the loss of my husband.

Natural light-filled rooms and closets are in lovely white and neutral palettes and are not jarring, nor overdone. Even early on, when resources were tight, maintaining an organized, stylish, and comfortable home was always a priority. Well, all you have to do is bin everything you thought you knew about organising and follow Shira Gill's revolutionary clutter-clearing plan. Broken into small, bite-sized chunks, Minimalista makes it clear that if the process is fun and easy to follow, anyone can learn the principles of editing and organization. Stopped reading this early on when she suggested tearing off book jackets and organizing books by color.

Once you learn the methodology you’ll dive into the hands-on work, choose-your-own-adventure style: knock out a room, or even a single drawer; style a bookshelf; donate a sweater. I was just having a conversation with a friend about how minimizing and she asked me, “well what do you do about all of your kids stuff? Rather than imposing strict rules and limitations, Shira redefines minimalism as having the perfect amount of everything—for you— based on your personal values and the limitations of your space.In helping others let go of excess and embrace minimalism, it is not my intention to ignore nor diminish the fact that many people live with less than they need. Organization became an important form of self-care for me and a way to reclaim some control in a world that often felt out of control. The only chapters I didn't read thoroughly were the ones on kids and the garage/attic since those don't really apply to me. She also constantly goes on about recycling things and not sending stuff to landfill EVERY SINGLE TIME getting rid of something is mentioned.
