Not intentionally, and I’m sure organizing existed before Marie Kondo and it will exist after…but damn, that lady was such a phenomenon, and for many people (me, me, me) our very first organizing saint. We had what we needed, but my parents valued experiences over possessions and instilled creativity, kindness, and curiosity as core values.

I've lost count of how many minimizing and decluttering books I've read since then, but this one is at the top of my list. For example, it took me years to arrive at one of Gill's pro tip: one nice product costs far less than a dozen cheapo products. She lectures about it being our responsibility to not give to Goodwill exclusively unless you know for sure that they will accept it (how would we know unless we worked or work there? Today I’ll be covering how to handle the awkwardness of receiving (and possibly getting rid of) unwanted gifts.Paring down to the essentials is the most direct route to figuring out who you are and what you truly care about. 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. In fact, there are few things I enjoy more than teaching others how to create living spaces that help them improve their lives on every level. She almost lost me when she suggested that dog beds are unnecessary because dogs are happy sleeping on the floor.

Shira Gill is a home organizing expert, author, speaker, and founder of the “fifteen-minute win” productivity hack.If you were active on Pinterest at the height of its popularity, I think you would enjoy the vibe of this book the most. Warleson Oliviera's minimalistic design for UNO® was brought from concept to reality by Mattel in less than 30 days! moment occurred in college, when I realized that I could up-level my space simply by stripping away clutter. After working with so many people, a series of questions started to emerge: How can I apply this process to other areas in my home on my own?

Now, before you conjure up images of empty spaces with stark, white walls, let me explain how I define minimalism.I’m on my own journey of minimising my possessions (not becoming a minimalist), I have been for a while.

I like how the author broke her organising steps down into sections for each room so you could see how to approach each type of room in your home. I told her that kids get overwhelmed with too much stuff and it is actually better for them to have less toys and stuff to play with and clean up.Rather than imposing strict rules and limitations, Shira redefines minimalism as having the perfect amount of everything – for you – based on your personal values and the limitations of your space. It’s simple but not always easy, and if you try to tackle it all at once, it can feel like an impossible task. The family and I are finally off on our rescheduled two-week trip to Europe after a major passport fail this summer. Now, in Minimalista, Shira shares her complete toolkit for the first time, built around five key steps: Clarify, Edit, Organize, Elevate, and Maintain.
