'DECLUTTER YOUR WAY TO HAPPINESS' Good Housekeeping

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Gretchen Rubin is a type-A personality who doesn't eat sugar or carbs, who has bashed out biographies of Churchill and probably bakes gluten-free cupcakes in her sleep. In short, she is the kind of person I should hate, but her books are bestsellers for a reason: they are excellent distillations of small, practical changes we can make to feel more on track with our lives . . . I loved the question "Are you furnishing a fantasy?" - in other words, are you keeping hold of the treadmill in the hope that one day you will be the kind of person who runs on it?
