I think I might buy it. It looks really helpful.

Yes, I have It's all too much by Peter Walsh (just adding title for those who don't want to click on the link).

I love it. It sounds just like Peter as you read it. I'm already pretty decluttered, but this book has helped me get real about a couple of large things around here. I love it.

If you can get it at your library, you could always try it there. Where I live, the library stinks, so I went ahead and bought it after browsing through it at a local store. I'm glad I did.

I'll have to check that out.
I really liked Don Aslett's Clutters Last Stand.

Yea, ours had one copy on order in large print ... we live in a city of over 500,000 people with quite a few branches, but for some reason, there's just one copy still on order ... oh well, knowing us, it'll probably be a good one to keep on the shelf for future reference!

Nope, my library doesn't have it. Hopefully I'll run across it at a used book sale or something.

I can't wait to read this. I looked awhile back on the library website to reserve a copy and they didn't have any. This thread prompted me to check again and now they have this book. I love Peter Walsh on Clean Sweep but we recently gave up cable and I can't watch it anymore. Hopefully I'll get the book soon and come back and discuss.

I downloaded the audio book and listen to it on my ipod as I'm decluttering. It's like having Peter there right next to you and cheering you on as you get rid of the clutter. Very effective. Also when I'm resting, I love to listen to him talking about the psychology of why we hang onto stuff and I love to listen to the success stories. The families are much happier because it's not just about getting rid of stuff, it's about making space and time for things that you really value. I heartily recommend this book.

I got the ebook version for my PDA. It seemed inappropriate to bring it into our house as a physical object.

Our local Borders has it in stock so I'm picking up a copy today. I'm debating downloading it from iTunes too.

I got the book today and am reading it now! I LOVE it. I keep reading pieces to dh as I go and I think we are going to download it from iTunes if it is there too so dh can listen to it in the car (he was like, well it would be that or ESPN radio ... Hmm ... that's a tough choice! ).

Thank you! I hadn't even thought of trying Audible for this book. Its not at my library and I can't buy it, but I have some audible credits already. So, I was able to get the book this way!!!! And with the study guide!!
