For Packrats Only: How to Clean Up, Clear Out, and Dejunk Your Life Forever - Don Aslett I read this book and "Clutter Free: Finally and Forever." I preferred this one, and felt it was more helpful. "Clutter Free "was more of the same, lots of anecdotes, etc. I bought these books to help me de-junk, (oh, the irony!) as I tend to be neatness challenged. While all of the stories were entertaining, they weren't very progressive when it came to MY project."Not For Packrats" was a little bit more informational. Aslett writes in a jokey style that is easy to read, and provides a little humor- sorely needed by people who have enough clutter to drive them to reading a book like this!The stories are motivational, with enough clutter it can feel like you are the only one that has ever had to face such a problem. Reading that you are not alone, and probably not even really that bad, can help.Aslett is also well-known for writing about how to clean things such as carpets, curtains, walls- in which order to clean the bathroom fixtures, etc. But this book is primarily about de-junking.
