And it can all be done in as little as a few minutes a day. Learn how to
create productive to-do lists • stem the flood of paper • downsize digital clutter and social media • arrange your space to spark creative juices • curb your desire to accumulate • collaborate and connect with others for support • embrace imperfection • keep up the momentum

Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these New Order: A Decluttering Handbook for Creative Folks (and Everyone Else) I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

Friends with the author BUT STILL READ THIS!
By Michael Medico
Ok. Look. I'm friends with Fay. I even hired her years and years ago to help me organize and declutter my home and have been using her techniques ever since. So, OF COURSE, I pre-ordered her book. I mean, I adore her. But I don't really need the book... I'm pretty organized and don't have that much stuff to get rid of anymore.
I opened the book just to thumb through it so I could tell her I liked it and LITERALLY (and I do mean that word literally) 5 minutes later, the book was on the coffee table and I was riffling through my book cases removing lots of my old theatre plays that I haven't touched in 16+ years. Fay has a way of framing decluttering that's inspired and truly inspiring. In essence, if you're holding on to tons and tons of things from your past, then there's little to no room for your future. In truth, I've not been a theatre actor in YEARS. I'm transitioning into being a film and TV director. But all of my film and TV directing books where in a pile way under my desk because I had no room on my shelves for them. In minutes of thumbing thru Fay's book, I realized holding on to my past was literally in the way of the future I'm creating for myself. (Side note: I didn't get rid of all the plays... and Fay would back me up on this...because a FEW of them still have sentimental value for me. She's all about keeping what's important to you. Just not FIVE shelves of "important")
I still have not finished New Order. Every time I pick it up, I go thru another purge. Yesterday, I picked it up and the next thing I knew I was going thru an old stationary box filled with business cards. I didn't even know who half of these people where NOR what they did for a living. I got rid of half of them. (side note: Fay set me up with that box to put my business cards in about 9 years ago. FAY- I KNOW I should put all of the contact info from those cards into my computer and get rid of ALL the cards... But like you said, Small Steps, right?! :-)
You can not HELP but be moved to action by this book.
And that is the honest to God truth.

Great decluttering book.
Great decluttering book.
I strongly prefer this approach to the Japanese approach, mostly because this approach is more gradual and forgiving. The Japanese book simply set the bar too high for the likes of me. With this book and its lower standards, I'm actually making some progress for the first time. Also,this one's a great source of app recommendations, and it also covers electronic decluttering.

A decluttering and organizing book for all of us already decluttered and organized people ;)
By Amazon Customer
I'm a VERY organized person....very. Always have been. I am not messy. I pay bills on time. My friends know i get things done. THAT SAID New Order taught me, yes even me, a thing or 8 that has my 'type A' self very early christmas feeling. First of all, 'Perfect' is now a word I catch myself saying and correcting. "Imperfectly better" has saved me time and actually given me more space, both physical and mentally. The notion to "Shop in my home" was instant glitter stars to my pocketbook and supported the D.I.Y. enthusiast in me. My workspace is now only current projects and basic tools. Fay gives you a strong sampling of the latest and best apps for planning, calendaring and collaborating....just good....trust me. And for me, most importantly, Fay spells out how to reclaim your digital time. HUGE. HUGH. I can not recommend this book enough. And YES my fellow tidy type A-ers, I'm talking to you.
