'Making Peace with the Things in Your Life' - book
I read this forum whenever I need a kick in the pants to organize my stuff.
Perhaps some of you have come accross this book already. I did a search for it in the forum but didn't find any mention of it. Just bought it from Amazon after having bought and read pretty much every Clutter / Household Orgazination / Storage book out there. I'm only into the 3rd chapter, but can tell you that this one is different so I thought I'd share the info. Sub-title is "Why your papers, books, clothes, and other possessions keep overwhelming you - and what to do about it" and the author is Cindy Glovinksy. She's a practicing psychotherapist and a personal orgaziner. Her tone is humorous, non-judgmental and her examples insightful. I'm very excited about this book and will update you on my progress once I've finished it.
Everyone is in a different place in respect to organizing the home and really, it's only when you feel that your things overwhelm you or control you that you have a problem. One of my debilitating mindsets has been thinking "when I'm finally organized, I'm going to..." start really living, I guess, so I had to laugh when I read: "And believe it or not, people have managed to date and get married without ever installing a new closet system." I recall declining many invitations to spend whole weekends "organizing" my office, closet, wardrobe or bathroom.
So, has anyone here read this book? Did it help you?
