"A perfect guide to getting the non-essentials out of the way, so that simple joys can make their way into our lives." - Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love

"If you want to grow, you gotta let go," is the mantra that bestselling author, columnist, and life coach Gail Blanke lives by. That means eliminating all the clutter - physical and emotional - that holds you back, weighs you down, or just makes you feel bad about yourself.

In THROW OUT FIFTY THINGS she takes us through each room of the house - from the attic to the garage - and even to the far reaches of our minds. Through poignant and humorous stories, she inspires us to get rid of the "life plaque" we've allowed to build-up there.

  • That junk drawer (you know that drawer) in the kitchen? Empty it!
  • Those old regrets? Throw 'em out!
  • That make-up from your "old" look? Toss it!
  • That relationship that depresses you? Dump it!

Once you've hit fifty (you'll be surprised how easy it is to get there) and once you've thrown out that too-tight belt and too-small view of yourself, you'll be ready to step out into the clearing and into the next, and greatest, segment of your life.

"Whenever I de-clutter my house, it helps de-clutter my mind. Gail Blanke is a perfect guide to getting the non-essentials out of the way, so that simple joys can make their way into our lives."―Marianne Williamson, author of A RETURN TO LOVE

"Everybody needs to throw out at least fifty things. Just make sure this book isn't one of them!"―Journalist and Television Producer, Linda Ellerbee

"Gail Blanke's Throw Out Fifty Things is the perfect roadmap to help you lighten your load. Leave it to a friend like Gail- wise, funny, practical, and so very organized-to empty my closets and clean out my shelves, while soothing the spirit and soul, too. This book is a keeper."―Linda Fairstein, bestselling author of LETHAL LEGACY

"THROW OUT FIFTY THINGS is a refreshing book full of practical tips and helpful insights. The title is the simple principle. Applied at home, in your career, in your mind, or in your business, it helps you get rid of the clutter that blocks success. Perhaps most astounding is how relevant the insights are to leading a business today."―Peter Loescher, President & CEO or Siemens AG

Book Description Little, Brown & Company, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. According to Blanke, "Our lives are so filled with junk from the past-from dried up tubes of crazy glue to old grudges-that it's a wonder we can get up in the morning, never mind to work, care for our children, our parents and just put one foot in front of the other." Blanke wants to start a movement of people across America throwing out fifty things (magazines count as only one!) that will help liberate us from the stuff-both physical and mental-that clutters our lives. It is the physical stuff that keeps us from being happy and calm in our house - not to mention keeps us from finding our keys in the morning! And it is the clutter in our mind that drags us down and holds us back from living the life we want to live. Blanke will take the reader through each room in the house and help her figure out what to throw out that will help them move forward. She'll show us how to find and throw out "toxic" possessions that remind us of failed relationships, bad jobs, etc, and she'll help us figure out what to keep to help us find out who we really are. Blanke's motivational advice in this book will inspire thousands of readers to take action as do her popular columns in Real Simple. Seller Inventory # BZE9780446505789
