Throw Out Fifty Things is truly an eye-opener. According to Blanke, our lives are so filled with junk from the past—from dries up tubes of crazy glue to old grudges—that it’s a wonder we can get up in the morning, never mind get to work, care for our children and parents, and just put one foot in front of the other. Blanke wants to start a movement across America of people throwing out fifty things (magazines count as only one!) that will help liberate us from the stuff—both physical and mental—that clutters our lives. It’s the physical stuff that keeps us from being happy and calm in our house—not to mention keeps us from finding our keys in the morning! And it’s the clutter in our mind that drags us down and holds us back from living the life we want to live. Blanke takes us through each room in the house and helps us get rid of ‘toxic’ possessions that remind us of failed relationships, bad jobs, etc., then she’ll help us figure out what to keep so we can move forward and find out who we really are!

    " I've read the last of my make-a-list-and-get-organized type of book. This one had been hanging around a while, so I figured what the hell. Cute, light, glib, well-written -- and essentially useless. The Virgo in me has finally said "enough." "

    " A great book to get you started on de-cluttering your life. "

    " At first I was a little hesitant to pick this one up, but I'm glad I did. The day before I read the book, my husband and I had donated a few boxes of stuff to Goodwill so I wasn't sure I'd be able to complete the task, but boy was I wrong! I enjoyed her antidotes and stories from her clients. It wasn't exactly life changing, but I enjoyed her motivation/decision making techniques. She teaches how to not only clear out the physical clutter, but the mental clutter as well. "

    " I read few chapters. I expected something more, it pretty straight forward. "
