Here, let me save you some time. Want to organize [space] in your home? Take everything out, clean it, get rid of the stuff you don't need to keep, and then put everything else back away ~but neatly~. Her advice on KEEPING things organized? Just do it. Ooooookay.

I dont know why I read decluttering books when these days, my home is mostly clutter free. I guess its because each book sort of re-motivates me to keep on top of it and reminds me of the benefits.. I like these little bits of motivation even though Im reading what I already know and live, and in many cases have read before. I actually liked the first few chapters were Nicola explained who she is and how a job lay off lead her to setting up a decluttering business. ...more

Två tankar som dök upp upprepade gånger: DIWhy??? och Duh!!. Att lyssna på organisera-ditt-liv-böcker brukar jag tycka är mysigt och lugnande- denna hade helt motsatt effekt. ...more

A quick read. Didn't tell me anything new about decluttering. I'm someone who reads decluttering, organizing and business/management books as lightweight entertainment. This definitely falls into the lightweight category.

Quibbles:
- "take everything out" (of whichever room you are working on). And put it where, exactly?
- assumes that whatever room you are decluttering (even a garage or shed) can be done in one afternoon or day. This is patently a woman who doesn't understand the real meaning of

I follow TGCO on Instagram so was intrigued to see what this book had to offer. I think I should have opted for the physical book, rather than audio as it was a little unrehearsed and difficult to follow. The tips were a little bit repetitive but I really like Nicola's emphasis in reducing unnecessary plastic use, upcycling, gifting and of course her eco cleaners 🙂

I am a massive fan of TGCO on Instagram, and pre-ordered this book prior to the release date.

It is the perfect accompaniment to her Instagram page, but in one handy volume, a reference, rather than having to scroll through lots of posts, highlights etc to find what you need.

I already use a few of TGCO techniques, and can honestly say that they do make life so much easier! And tgis book will help me keep on track, and implement more. Life can sometimes be chaotic, so anything helps right?!

After following Nicola on Instagram for some time and loving her organising tips I decided to purchase this book to accompany it. Its full of handy tips and eco cleaning information. Its certainly made me more aware of how important it is to be recycling and repurposing items.

I read it from front to back but its great to use as a reference for things and the pages are easy enough to find. I found I already knew a majority of the tips listed because Ive been following her for a while but others

Some fantastic, natural, cleaning product recipes and some good storage solutions as well as practical advice and contacts for donating unwanted goods. Great if youre environmentally conscious. These positives outweighed the slow start and slightly repetitive and patronising parts of the book, e.g. be careful with knives. Its easy to cut yourself. Thanks.....
Also worth saying that I do feel a lot of the information from the book is probably available on her instagram page

Very nicely organized (of course) book on decluttering, organizing and cleaning. Love the diy cleaners and her top tips for all of it. I found Nicola on Instagram somehow. I enjoy watching her help her clients flutter and find homes for all their stuff. I like that she lists out resources for donating you extra stuff.

What a great book!

This book is packed with useful tips and tricks on organising and decluttering the whole house. I will definitely be using the recipes for homemade cleaning products, I've been trying hard to go more eco friendly so this will help. Highly recommended

Self help to a healthy home and mind. I really enjoyed this book. It had made the job of decluttering my home so much less stressful. Also being read by the writer I felt like she was there championing my every task.

I like this authors Instagram account. The book showcased the advice shared through that account. It just didnt seem to have a coherent overview or approach. The lists of advice may be helpful for some. ...more
