Gretchen Rubin knows firsthand that creating order can make our lives happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative. But for most of us, a rigid, one-size-fits-all solution doesn't work. When we tailor our approach to suit our own particular challenges and habits, we can find inner calm.
With a sense of fun, and a clear idea of what s realistic for most people, Rubin suggests dozens of manageable tips and tricks for creating a more serene, orderly environment, including:
Never label anything miscellaneous.
Ask yourself, Do I need more than one?
Don t aim for minimalism.
Remember: If you can t retrieve it, you won t use it.
Stay current with a child s interests.
Beware the urge to procrasticlear.
By getting rid of things we don t use, don t need, or don t love, we free our minds (and our shelves) for what we truly value.

Rubin had learned that there was a close correlation between habits and happiness, so she figured out how we form them, use them, and change them. Once I came to understand habits as harnessing our own laziness making a habit frees you from decision-making, which you can use to your advantage my relationship to them changed permanently. The New Yorker
Lays out life s essential goals serves as a kind of detailed instruction manual on how to achieve them.
