Create Space: Declutter Your Home to Clear Your Mind
About this deal
The book also has some of Dilly’s own personal stories and some of her clients’ too. Something that the book focuses on too and something that is very important is the connection between mental health and clutter/mess. Creating space in your home and decluttering can have such a huge impact on your life, your relationships and your health. DAY 1: You will remove one object from your home. Look for a large item that will make a big impact. If you haven't read any of organization books there are on the market and this book is on sale, you can buy it. If not, don't bother.
DAY 8: Have you been through your shoes recently? Are there any you are not going to wear again that you can donate to charity or sell? The goal is to remove eight things from your house today.

DAY 23: Do you still have piles of DVDs, even though you are signed up to Netflix? Go through your DVDs — there are companies that will buy them from you.
DAY 27: I often joke that people sometimes panic and end up taking 30 plastic bags to the recycling point. However, if you have been storing cardboard boxes “just in case”, they are very valid items to remove.DAY 7: Go through your Tupperware. Make sure every bottom has a top that matches. Store them, with lids on, inside each other. Then consider what you can reduce.
Publisher Jo Lal acquired world rights from Carly Cook at The Found. The guide will be published on 16th March 2023. This book has a fun design, clear organization, and lots of ideas for how to declutter and keep spaces tidy. The author seems like a very nice person, and she offers advice without ever seeming judgmental or elitist. Even though there wasn't anything new for me in this book, I enjoyed skimming through it, and I would recommend it to people who are just starting out with decluttering, especially if they think that emotional or mental health issues will make the process difficult for them. DAY 3: Look through your kitchen cupboards to find appliances you never use. Perhaps you have a pasta machine, bread maker, deep-fat fryer or slow cooker that never sees the light of day.It looks at lots of different areas of our lives and delivers facts and practical advice for how we can make our lives better. The book is split into Morning, Afternoon, Evening and Night and pretty much looks at all aspects of life – psychology, nutrition, biology, and physics. Thinking about things you bought you did not need will help ensure you don’t have to repeat this process so intensely next time. The book is broken down by room or space, which is nice if you (like me) have areas that are especially cluttered and other rooms that fare quite well. There are also helpful tips that appear as bulletted lists in a different colored section of each chapter. After a few chapters, you get the main ideas and can probably take it from there.
