    لم استفد منه بشكل كبير، ربما لأني قرأته بعد كتاب "سحر الترتيب" وكلاهما يدور حول نفس الهدف وهو التخلص من الكراكيب القديمة، وإن كان الكتاب الحالي يركز في جزء منه على الكراكيب النفسية أيضاًبشكل عام كتاب متميز لمن يهوى الاحتفاظ بكل شئ قديم ويقدم حلول ع...

    My hunch is that those who need this probably won't read this lol

    Most of my friends read and raved about this book, so when I was given a copy as a gift I was excited. "Drink the Kool-Aid," they said, and drink I did. I read this book in about three days, which is amazing considering I kept taking breaks to clear out drawers and purge myself of all the unused, unloved objects clouding my chi and bringing my karma down. Which is the basic premise of this book. The stuff you hoard is more than junk - it becomes ...

    I'm sure that Ms. Kingston's advice works very well for other people, but a lot of what she said boiled down to advice I've heard many times about how an orderly house leads to an orderly life, or that you feel better if you have less clutter. This would make for a fine book, except that I find some of her other statements offensive. If your house burns down, that's a sign from the universe that you need to restart your life. If you have books ne...

    I've been on a purge of the "stuff" in our home for a while now, and hoped this book would encourage me to go forth with renewed energy. It did, a little, but I also found a lot in it that made me more irritated at the author than inspired. Books by my bed don't mean that my primary relationship is with books rather than people. It means that I'm an avid reader and read a lot of books, though (now) keep only a smidgeon of what I read. If my house...

    Ok, I have only read a little bit of this so far but already it's inspired me to de-clutter various nooks of my house. It has a way of inspiring you to de-clutter instead of inducing guilt about it.Feng Shui is about the movement of energy through your home, and not surprisingly clutter is a major thing that gets in the way. She makes the point that you can follow the various advice to put a mirror here or a plant there, but if everything is all ...

    What does feng shui have to do with what your poo looks like? Everything, apparently.

    I read books on decluttering to keep myself on track. I think this is one I got super-cheap on Amazon. It started out fine, if you can over-look all the mystical silliness. No new information, but fine for me as a booster. But. The author seems to think she single-handedly invented the idea that clutter is problematic. Even believes that all the de-cluttering television shows out there are a direct result of this book! But I was even able to most...

    So far this book has made he a happier person and I am only on page 50. I have a lot of clutter, though. Let me know if you want to borrow it.

    *I'll write a more comprehensive review later.*I bought this book for a dime at my local library, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that it changed my life. Growing up, I lived with a hoarder who didn't allow me to have things, which meant I grew up in a home where there was all this junk around me but none of it was mine. The few things that did come into my possession were later taken for garage sales. Needless to say, when I left home, I wen...

    I am not easily offended, and usually take things with a grain of salt. I also usually give authors the benefit of the doubt, and in this case I really wanted to because I know virtually nothing about Feng Shui. But this book was so extremely out-there that I got the feeling the author may be psychotic. I'm not kidding.People actually believe that the things that happened in your house before you bought it will probably also happen to you, such a...
  • Danielle
    This book inspired me to do a complete "feng shui" clean-out of my home! I have been scaling down my belongings for the past few weeks and feel such a surge of excitement with this wonderful revitalization of my living space. In the process of reading this book and clearing space in my home/life, I have had to stop and consider every single object I have been holding on to...and ask myself: Why? Why do I still own this thing? If it still has a us...

    هذا الكتاب لمن يريد أن يعيش في مساحة رحبة ، بدون كراكيب ، لا استطيع القول بإنه ممتاز أو أني أصدق كل ما فيه مثل التخلص من كراكيب القولون وغيرها .. ولكنني أحببته كدفعة معنوية ايجابية دفعتني لتنظيم بيئتي المحيطة أكثر وأكثر.

    This is a book I need. And yet, whenever I read tips about how to de-clutter your life, I seem to always say that the ideas make sense, I can just never follow through with them.---------------------------Most of the tips and advice for clearing clutter was common sense (get rid of things that don't work; get rid of things you're "going to fix some day" that you know you won't; get rid of stuff that has no real sentimental value for you anymore; ...
  • Jen
    I really liked this book. It inspired me to clear out so much clutter. The central idea is that we can let go of our clutter by feeling confident that what you need will be available to you when you need it. In other words, I don't need to keep all the (tons of) craft supplies that I've been lugging around from state to state for years and never using, "just in case." I will be able to craft what I want with fewer things. Who knows, the right too...
  • Erin
    I found this in my bedside table where I must have swiped it from somewhere and then forgot about it (ironic!) when I decided to clean up a little on New Year's. But after flipping through this (but before really reading much of it) I decided to really declutter my place, and this book was my feng shui guide! Yes, a lot of feng shui is woo woo, but I believe that stuff has energy, much of it negative, and it can hold you back because you feel ove...
  • Helene
    This book has helped me feel motivated to clear out a lot of clutter/junk I have accumulated in my apartment. It makes sense to talk about the "energies" that certain objects/things emit. The book has helped me understand a few things about myself, about why I have accumulated so much unnecessary clutter. I hope after I clean out the clutter from my apartment that I will feel better. This book definitely helped me feel some more interest in learn...
  • Margaret Unger
    This book has a few practical points that must be filtered out from stuff that struck me as BS. The practical points are useful and motivating. The BS parts often caused me to laugh out loud and have provided me with amusing funny-story material -- seriously, you must clap your hands in corners and ring specially-designed bells but only if you are experienced or a trained space-clearing consultant, otherwise doing this might be dangerous?? I also...
  • Bark
    I am still far from being decluttered but am finding this book extremely helpful and motivating. I've read a few other beginner feng shui manuals and found them too intimidating. This book states the reasons people collect clutter and was a real eye opener for me! This was a terrific motivator for me and was more helpful than I anticipated. I now have a clean closet near my entryway (starting there because it's most important) and found things th...

    As a professional Organizer and Certified Relocataion and Transition Specialist, I enjoy this book once a year or so, especially after dealing with client's whose homes are horribly cluttered. Less is More everyone. I find so much more energy and peace when things are in alignment. I try to start the year out right, although I must admit that after helping someone else sort through their junk all day, it really hard to come home and do your own. ...

    While it may seem simple enough to be organized, many of us end up settling for the clutter and chaos in our homes and lives. This book walks through clearing spaces and improving the energy around us. By sorting your junk, you organize your life.A concept that was particularly difficult for me to embrace was the idea of letting things go. While I am not a pack-rat, there are things I hold onto "just in case." Kingston tackles this idea well, and...
  • Kitty
    A must for pack ratsThis book, more than any other I've ever read, actually inspired me to get up and do something. I bought it thinking that it might help with some of the clutter, back when I was living in a very tiny house. I had no idea that it would cure my pack-rat habit! Less than halfway through, I was compelled to start getting rid of stuff. This book truly makes you want to let go of all your stuff. It gives you a whole new outlook on "...
  • Shannon
    I was given this book to read and expected to learn about design elements in order to make my home more welcoming and beautiful. I was taken aback when the majority of the book opened my eyes to what emotions I had been harboring in my junk. Not only have I cleared out the physical excess, I've started purging my life of other unwanted clutter (behaviors, hobbies I thought I "needed", etc). I cannot tell you enough how pleased I am that I read th...
