Marcia Ramsland’s book annoys me. I unfortunately find it an “Of course you can” book. “Of course you can” books always work on a premise of “this is simple, there’s no reason on Earth why you can’t do this.” They also tend to be one-size-fits-all. So they too often don’t help their readers figure out why it isn’t simple. That often makes it harder to use the book’s techniques. Some of her tips might suit you, it can’t hurt to try. Perhaps more important, Ramsland has very persuasive, everyday-ordinary, entirely nonjudgmental, examples and observations to share about the negative impact which clutter can have on peoples’ mindsets. This might be a terrific book to share with a loved one who needs to be persuaded to declutter.
Ramsland is undeniably sympathetic to people with clutter issues. She is an outstanding Organizer. I would be thrilled to work with her one-on-one, for her mentorship or as a client.
