The first and easiest thing to tackle are your wearables. In this lecture we will move through how to tackle your clothing in a well that is less overwhelming than the book suggests.

The magic begins here.

This is your first action exercise. Follow the steps to begin your Life Changing Magic!

Action Exercise - Clothing

You've decided what to keep, now what is the best way to store it?

How do you store your "keepers"?

Now that your have discarded all the clothes that you do not want to keep, it's time to organize what you will keep.

Action Exercise - Fold & Store

So we've started off easy, now it's time to move on to the next category and test how well you have adapted to your "toss test."

After you've done your first category, what do you tackle next?

Do you have favorite books that you want to hang on to? Take this test to see what to keep in your book collection and what to toss.

What books do you keep and what books do you let go of?


  1. Take all of your books off your shelves.
  2. Collect books from all the places around the house where you store them including cook books and reference books.
  3. Hold each book in your hand and ask yourself if you would read this book again.
  4. Discard any books that you purchased but never read.
  5. Discard any books that are readily available at your library.
  6. Keep only those books that you have a strong sentimental tie to or that you regularly go back to such as a cook book.
  • If a cookbook only has one or two recipes that you use, consider copying those or ripping out the pages and discarding the rest of the book.
  • If you have a local library you can donate all the books you do not keep.
  • If you do not have a library, consider putting in a garage sale or finding a charity that you can donate them to.
  • If you have a series, consider putting them up for sale on eBay, Amazon or Craigslist.
Action Exercise - Books

What is the number one source of clutter in your home? If you are like most people, that culprit is paper. Let's deal with that category next.

The biggest clutter culprit is next.


  1. Gather all paper from the various landing and storing places in your home.
  2. Sort into 4 piles
  • What you need to act on
  • What you need to keep for the short term
  • What you need to keep for the long term
  • Trash

For papers that you need to keep long term

  • Store them in a clear folder
  • Don't bother to sort them

For papers that you need to keep for the short term

  • Occasionally review what you have in this category and toss when you no longer need the items

Tips to keep the paper to a minimum

  • Consider keeping electronic copies of receipts
  • Consider electronic or paperless billing
  • Open your mail next to the trash bin and immediately recycle any junk mail
