The author’s intention was to share what she learned and applied in her aim to simplification. These were the tips and tricks she learned along the way for her own satisfaction.
My favorite was her suggestion to seek for the book Speed Cleaning by Jeff Campbell and the Clean Team (I have to read that book) because it may help in cleaning house without backtracking (I need that) and the part about the difference between a man and a woman’s wardrobe put a big ‘smiling in agreement’ face on me. Although I beg to disagree on some tips like getting rid of the phone and the car (my eyes rolled on this one as we live in Texas).
Most of what she has written, most of it we already know. But because she has done it, she has shared her way of doing it. Because let’s face it, we might know most of these things, but what are we doing about it? Or if we are already in the process of simplifying, this book may offer a different perspective other than our own.
