I have just finished reading this book and I have to say it was full of interesting insights and great tips on not only decluttering your life but how to clean up your finances as well.
The world financial crisis has caused many families to rethink the way they spend and what they consider to be important in their lives. Many have realised that living a life with less is a far better option than living up to their eyeballs in debt. Some of the letters quoted in the books show that many people have considered the wfc as a blessing in disguise that has made them realise the errors of their ways. People who have re-adjusted to a more rewarding existence that doesn’t include the endless and equally mindless pursuit of more stuff.
Peter gives his readers guidelines and exercises to help them take stock of how they measure happiness, how to rein in spending and facing up to the emotional side to our stuff. It can be a little confronting at times but that is often what it takes to help us see a way through the mess we have gotten ourselves into.
I highly recommend reading this book whether you need the financial guidance or just a little help letting go of the stuff cluttering up not only your house but your life.

Today’s Declutter Item
The items just keep on coming and every little thing helps, even something as small as this hole punch. Just another thing excess to our needs. This one went to the thrift shop. They kept it to add to their own stationary supplies.Â
Something I Am Grateful For Today
I love taking time to visit new places, I love having alone time with my husband and I love escaping from the everyday grind but I also am grateful to have a happy, comfortable, uncluttered home to come back to when my vacation is done.
