Bursting with practical and relatable advice, this book injects enthusiasm, energy and some much-needed humour into the essential task of de-cluttering. Forget the holier-than-thou approach promising a whole new you if you alphabetise your sock drawer - this is decluttering for real people, with real lives. With a refreshingly honest approach, Debora tackles the best ways to deal with domestic dilemmas, cluttered kitchens and crowded cupboards. She includes handy tips and tricks for the average time-poor person. Tasks are broken down into achievable goals and 'quick fixes', allowing even the busiest of people to create, maintain and achieve a tidy home.


This is a nice, sensible approach to getting some sense of organisation and control in your home, taking the good advice from other areas and making it functional. The no-nonsense attitude is also gentle, calm and confident, making you feel like it’s okay, you’re on a journey and everything is achievable if you just keep going - a little bit at a time.

I’ll be honest, by the time I’d finished reading, I didn’t think my home was actually too bad, although there are some areas that could use this attention. Definitely worth a read and a subsequent application.

Rating: 4 / 5
