One of her premises is

that you can’t declutter a little bit at a time, because you don’t get the full impact and it doesn’t STAY decluttered. She has her clients get EVERY piece of whatever they’re working on(clothes, tools, books, etc.) in one place at one time. I did my clothing that way, and was able to get rid of SEVERAL bags to donate. And my closets and drawers STILL have plenty of room in them. So that part was successful. The books are getting there, but there are several that I still want to read first. I just have to make the time to DO so, instead of staying on my computer in the evenings.
