Keep what you love : a visual decluttering guide

Image of item
This is a charming and yet quite practical impulse book on how to sort through the too-much-stuff of life. The premise is so simple: the artist Lotte Dirks has illustrated hundreds of common items - oven mitts, incomplete board games, a pair of skis, novelty ice cube trays, a dying plant, a feather duster, flip-flops, a waffle maker, old Christmas cards, a manual typewriter, chipped dishes, defunct phone chargers, a rocking horse, and so on. Beneath each drawing are two little checkboxes: Yes and No. Look at the item. Note your response (be honest - the only right answer is the one that's right for you). Check one of the boxes. And act accordingly! Additionally, boxes and asides offer dozens of creative tips for how to organise, how to tackle big jobs like a full closet, and ideas to what do with things we can't part, with like children's artwork or old books - all through Flow's sensibility of finding pleasure in the imperfect and the overlooked.
