Make Room for What You Love: Your Essential Guide to Organizing and Simplifying Reviews
I've been waiting on this one to come out and I wasn't disappointed! In this wonderful book the author encourages the reader to declutter and organize your home leaving only those things you truly need and love. But the book is not just about getting rid of stuff....it's about having a more relaxed and fulfilling life as a result of it. She writes about a morning routine, the domino effect, creating order and enjoying luxury aka having empty drawers and more cabinet space. If you have "stuff" everywhere and feel totally overwhelmed by it, then this is the book for you!
I wanted a book to help motivate me to de-clutter and get rid of extra stuff I have a hard time parting with.
My first thought is that Melissa writes in a way that I feel she is talking directly to me! I have her book Love The Home You Have and it helped me improve the look and feel of my home so much. I even got comments on how much better it looks! This new book has charged me up to a whole new level. I am so bad about holding on to things that I really don't need. Examples-I remember who gave this to me, I remember how much this cost, I might need this some day. For some reason reading this book has unleashed a purging binge for me. Through Melissa's writing I feel it's finally time and OK to just let stuff go. I've tried other methods before, but this is the one that is really working for me!
As always Melissa Michaels tells you how to find peace and joy in your home
I have all of Melissa Michaels. This is a good book on its own but it repeats what was said in some of her previous books. She has some good organizing ideas which I already know. But, that doesn't mean I have used them & it's good to be reminded of what can be done. As time goes by organizing needs change. It's nice to have a refresher. For the reviews that say she is just a repeat of the fly lady, this is not true. She adds warmth & heart to her books. She is very gifted. and, I love the coloring book!
Great book! What makes this book different from other organizing books I've read is the focus on changing your thought process and mindset toward 'stuff' altogether. Not just a how-to-clean-out-your-stuff plan, but also how keep it that way. It gets at the source of the matter, which is the keep to sustaining any change! I love love love it and catch myself having 'Melissa' thoughts when deciding whether to get rid of something or purchase something.
When starting a clean up/declutter in my house, I always like to read a corresponding book. It helps reinforce what I am doing. There really was nothing new in this book. But like I said, it did reinforce what I was accomplishing. The last couple of chapters get all spiritual and I skipped them. But overall, mission accomplished.
I enjoyed the book, but I felt it was very repetitious. It included many interesting ideas for organizing and decluttering your home.
