I've read several home organization books, and this one was a little different, in a good way. The author has you visualize what kind of life you want and how you want each room of your house to look and feel, before you even start decluttering. He claims that the clutter really isn't about "the stuff," and I know that to be true. There ends up being a lot of shame and guilt about clutter, self-recriminations, "why can't I keep the house straightened?" Etc. Visualizing what I really want has helped me to get around the shame and step toward my vision instead. It has a different feel to it this way.

Some good advice in this book. Some of it you've heard before, but he has a good approach.
