I've read both of her books and completed the full decluttering/reorganizing program in six months. In the last year, it has been my favorite thing to bring up to my friends, co-workers, heck, even distant cousins.

A totally reasonable, scary cult that works, doesn’t kill people (a bonus), but does drastically change your life. In this case — for the better." -- Buzzfeed "The most organized woman in the world." -- PureWow ". . . her voice . . . is by turns stern and enchanted, like a fairy godmother for socks." -- The Wall Street Journal "Reading it, you glimpse a glittering mental freedom from the unread/uncrafted/unworn, buyer’s remorse, the nervous eyeing of real estate listings. Life’s overwhelm, conquered." -- The Atlantic "I can only describe the way I felt afterward as an organizational high.
