Here are some interesting notes I took:

  1. Evaluate the value of every possession based on what it can do for you, not just because you can own it.
  2. If you’re overwhelmed by the amount of clutter you have in a given space, take a small pile to a cleaner space and start decluttering it.
  3. The more you declutter and get organized, the more time you’ll have to spend with your family.
  4. If you’re tired of the decluttering work, think about its future payoff.
  5. Everyone can find 10 minutes a day to declutter.
  6. Living simply doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself from anything.
  7. Do you forget the person if you declutter his/her gift?
  8. To stay focused, you must connect your decluttering efforts to the big picture of what you want your life to be.
  9. The Ridiculous Memory technique for overcoming the “What If?” scenario. (Minute 16)
  10. 30-Day Challenge: Don’t buy anything except for absolute necessities like food. The results will shock you!
  11. It usually gets a little worse before it gets better.
  12. Designate a home for every item you own, and when the designated space is full ask yourself which item you like the least, then get rid of it.
  13. Imagine that awesome feeling when you step into a hotel room to spend a nice vacation, you can make that in your own house by just decluttering. It’s the stuff or that feeling…your choice!
