This is a great book to get rid of the unnecessary clutter in your home and in your head, cleaning out the junk and having more space for the important things.

When I told my husband about this book, he was immediately threatened, because I've had his stacks of magazines on my junk-busting scope for years, now. It's pure love and tenderness that has kept me from tearing these fire-hazard treasures from his life, but it's the year of YES WE CAN and he's gotta give up the trash.

I think one of the best things about this book is how "throwing" isn't exactly dumping all the things you deem useless in the trash. The book, in fact, encourages getting rid of the junk the right way, either through recycling, swapping, and donating. For a book that encourages throwing things away, it's actually green and almost nothing is wasted.

It takes some work, but consider the proper disposal of things as a cleansing of the mind and body. By making your things accessible to those who need them, and giving them to the people who have use for them, you're doing the earth and your community a favor, and your mind gets some much needed cleansing therapy.

"It's pure love and tenderness that has kept me from tearing these fire-hazard treasures from his life"...I love that. It's so true though we keep things forever thinking we might need/use them someday and of course that day never comes. I really like that this book incorporates green techniques for the disposal of your junk. De-cluttering certainly does reduce the chaos in life...might be time for a little spring cleaning!Thanks for the suggestion.
