I preferred "Not For Packrats Only." Clutter Free was more of the same, lots of anecdotes, etc. I bought these books to help me de-junk, 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!
