About this deal

Well, all you have to do is bin everything you thought you knew about organising and follow Shira Gill's revolutionary clutter-clearing plan. So no earth shattering revelations in this book; a much more “American” way of seeing the home, the self, the end goals. This book has so much to offer in each chapter, including simple steps, some tough love, and humor to encourage you to finally part with some of the things you’ve been hanging onto. This book is an indispensable guide for anyone who wants to pare back to what is essential and let go of the rest.

Part 1 (the first 90 or so pages) was good, outlining her step by step process for decluttering and organising your home. We had what we needed, but my parents valued experiences over possessions and instilled creativity, kindness, and curiosity as core values.Now I'll know what book to recommend when people ask me to help them on their journey towards minimalism! It's probably just that they are direct competition in the niche of "Female lead, home organizing brands which have been featured on Goop". Now, in Minimalista, Shira shares her complete toolkit for the first time, built around five key steps- Clarify, Edit, Organize, Elevate, and Maintain. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Once you learn the methodology you’ll dive into the hands-on work, choose-your-own-adventure style: knock out a room, or even a single drawer; style a bookshelf; donate a sweater.

As a professional home organizer with clients ranging from students to multi-millionaires, Shira Gill observed that clutter is a universal stress trigger. I preach a philosophy of minimalism that confronts excess—not one that deprives you of the things you actually enjoy. I became a bit of a transformation junkie, learning how to effect change in the most simple, efficient, and impactful way possible.Teach them young to organize and take care of their things and to put them away when they are finished with it before moving on to the next thing and don’t clean up after them and this will be a GIFT they will take with them into adulthood! moment occurred in college, when I realized that I could up-level my space simply by stripping away clutter. Assess the condition of the skin and nails and check if there are any contraindications to the procedure. Broken into small, bite-sized chunks, Minimalista makes it clear that if the process is fun and easy to follow, anyone can learn the principles of editing and organization.

In her world, people also don’t really exercice and should chuck all their sports wear they never use (you got me here Shira, i confess, guilty as charged), nor do they do any of the crafts they have stoked their drawers with (leave my 64 pans of watercolor out of this!

And frankly, as I sat on the 10+ year old couches, that used to live in my parents basement, while wearing my husbands ratty old college sweatshirt (that is so damn comfortable you’ll have to pry it from my cold dead hands) I realized I’d need to take the rest of the book with a grain of salt. Now, before you conjure up images of empty spaces with stark, white walls, let me explain how I define minimalism. We’re about to embark on gift giving season, and you may already be dreading the inevitable influx of more stuff you don’t necessarily want or need. There's even a section on how to handle the possessions when someone has passed away which was very helpful to me, as I am still downsizing and decluttering after the loss of my husband.
