Throw out Fifty Things Book Review and Giveaway *CLOSED*


So what do you think? Is this a book a Professional Organizer would like? Heck yes!!
Anything that will help people to part with things that are holding them back from having the space and life they are searching for is good with me.

What I really like is that this author goes through it with you. You really feel like you are right there with her in her home, going through her living room, bedroom etc... making the decisions on what should go, what should stay and why. It is from a first person perspective. Very cool.

This book is very easy to read and very helpful and inspiring to help you be able to start the journey of being able to part with things that are just taking up space and are serving no purpose in your life.(other than to be clutter in your home)

To Buy: Look for this book in your local bookstore or go to Hackette Book Group and see a preview of the book along with list of stores you can purchase it from.


To Win:

1) Go to Hachette Book Group and check out their site. Tell me what the publish date of this book was. Then come back here and comment on it. Please be sure to leave me your
e-mail address.

I wonder "what Fifty Things" we should really throw out! An extremely lazy boyfriend?
This book comes in handy as a birthday present for my housemate who has her room filled up with everything, and you can hardly see the carpet!! Great stuff.. and sounds humorous! :p
