Self-reflection is the first step to decluttering because it's not about the stuff. (Unknown)

The third book we will discuss is this one which is beautifully written. The content is inspiring, and the style immaculate. It's not just what she says, but how she says it. The author infuses her advice with humour and just enough down-to-earth reality to keep you hooked. This book will change your life!
