All The Help I Can Get

I received this book in the mail yesterday after waiting nearly 4 weeks (this online store doesn't tell you that they source and mail from overseas until you get your invoice) after a recommendation from a friend.................
It will hopefully get me going on decluttering my house. I have only just started reading it and so far the book has me relaxed and getting into the right mindset to tackle the job. This is more than some other decluttering books that I have bought and read (now you see why I need to declutter LOL) has made me feel. These other books use timers, racing around like a lunatic etc. So wish me luck!

Oh and another reason I need to start is that I watch "Hoarders Buried Alive" and that tv show freaks me out LOL
