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.

Reviews

What better way to start the New Year than to get rid of the old and start anew? Popular blogger Babauta (ZenHabits.net) advises readers to identify the essential and eliminate the rest, while life coach Blanke (Between Trapezes) cuts to the chase, ordering her audience to empty that stuffed kitchen drawer. What distinguishes Blanke's book is her advice to let go of not only stuff but also regrets, ideas about one's personality type, and the need to be liked by everyone. Babauta, too, advocates five-sentence emails and single-tasking for clearing away mental clutter. Both worthwhile purchases are heartily recommended. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

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.

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 "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 "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 "Gail Blanke's strength is her ability to illuminate simple acts that save time, money and many headaches, in a clear commonsense language. And that's exactly what this book does-in spades."--author of Passages and Sex and the Seasoned Woman, Gail Sheehy

Blanke (Between Trapezes), a motivational speaker and former columnist for Real Simple, shovels aside detritus to make space for cleaner rooms and clearer minds. She challenges readers to follow her example in discarding 50 things; tossed items range from old clothes to "the need to be right." The author's suggestions range from the humble ("Have a swap party for your outgrown clothes") to the ambitious ("Clarify who you are"), and her scope and environmentally conscious mind-set make the book a rousing call to total transformation-one mismatched sock at a time.
