This is about my tenth time reading this book, and I think I will probably declutter it in the next purge. It was inspiring to me for many years and it motivated me to get rid of a lot of things. Don Aslett has written some things that have really stayed with me over the years. Like where he asserts that we think having two homes will be double the wealth, but in reality it's double the worry and double the responsibility. Or where he says that things die in storage, which I think is really true ...more

I've already read lots of decluttering books and blogs but there was still valuable insights and motivation here. Just what I need for the last few boxes of my mammoth task of emptying the attic that spans the house.
I found it very enlightening to read that he has never yet come across anyone who found that some old piece of clutter they were hanging on to for it's "value" was really treasure and not the trash that it actually was. Many items I have decluttered nearly didn't make it to the dona

Still the best inspiration for decluttering out there!

The very first decluttering book I ever read, when my kids were young, was a book by Don Aslett. I passed it on to a friend, never got it back, but that book spurred me on to declutter and be the minimalist I am today! Itbwas wonderful to see this book available on Kindle, and once again, his writing style is so motivational that I couldnt put this book down until I was finished. Mr Aslett, with his cleaning experience and great common sense,

This book will change your perspective on your STUFF. As someone that has been bringing stuff into my house for five years without ever getting rid of any stuff, this book has given me a new perspective on what I need to do, and why. Great read - funny, too - for someone wanting to de-clutter their house, or their lives in general.

okay, so I grabbed this book, and all my husband said was "we don't have clutter, you know there is such a thing as being too organized." He is right, but this book is AWESOME and I would highly recommend it to all you have to de-stress and become more organized!

It's amazing what you can learn about yourself when you read a self-help book! This book is all about the clutter and junk we surround ourselves with: how it affects our lives, and how to get rid of it! Definitely implementing some of this soon!

This was pretty good, but more about why you should than how to actually go about it. It got pretty redundant after awhile.

No nonsense tips in organizing. My nephews loved reading this as well. They kept taking my book and reading it themselves.

As you can guess, the 200 pounds referenced in the title o the book is 200 pounds of clutter. Don Aslett makes his points with humor and funny pictures.
great inspiration for de-junking, but it IS interesting that he had to write 10 books on teh subject

Just a followup book that regularly refers back to some if his older very popular books. One chapter was very preachy, but just move on and you will enjoy. Good push to get going on decluttering.
