    The three main points of the book are lose the clutter, lose the weight and use mindfulness to avoid malignant emotions, food and items in your life. Organizational guru Peter Walsh helped me think through changes I have been making and continue to make. “Somehow, at some point, you become too large for your comfort,” he writes at the beginning. He also helps explain how stuff, emotions and eating are all related and not helping me get the life I want and deserve. I want a conversation with him on diet programs, although he gives a simple program and simple exercises. He even meddles with my finances and email, but all to my benefit. I am in the process of downsizing and his logic helps me divide my stuff into Zone One and Zone Two. Thank you, Peter, for nailing it!

    Still reading it. I’m starting week #2 tomorrow which is decluttering the bedroom. Peter Walsh has great information, gives lots of encouragement and brings in experts for the diet and exercise portion and the mindfulness meditation. I’m doing my own diet right now, but I love how his is set up. You have so many healthy choices its not a diet, but being mindful about healthy food choices. The exercise portion is great if you don’t have any equipment. I go to the gym, but the book offers good options. The parts on being mindful are incredibly helpful when dealing with cravings or emotional attachment to stuff. It has really changed the way I look at things. Going through my kitchen in week #1 was difficult at times, but also very rewarding. I have filled 3 kitchen garbage bags for the trash and put 3 boxes of items for a garage sale, or to give away. It is a great relief to have a vision for the spaces in my house and work to accomplish it. My house is not messy and it doesn’t look cluttered, but inside my cupboards…holy Hannah! I have found things I’d forgotten about and never use. It feels great to make decisions about those things and move them out.

    So I’m off to week #2 for another cathartic experience!! I highly recommend this book!

    ” “I might need this one day” is no longer an excuse I use to keep unnecessary items, and I’m finding happiness in other places, March 5, 2015

    I work at Rodale and was lucky enough to be a test panelist for the program outlined in this book. Let me tell you…it works! Peter just has a unique gift of getting through to people, helping them get over whatever emotional ties they have to “stuff.”

    “I might need this one day” is no longer an excuse I use to keep unnecessary items, and I’m finding happiness in other places, not buying “stuff.”

    This book lays out a plan to create a vision for each room in your house and then systematically helps you declutter each room. It actually made decluttering and letting go of things, dare I saw it, fun.

    For years, I knew I had to get more organized and get rid of things, but no one has ever gotten through to me like Peter has. I lost almost 12 pounds on the book, and my house is looking better and better every day. Thank you, Peter!
