The overall message is to keep what you love and donate what you don't. As a sentimental person, this can be difficult for me. The most useful tips for me were the rationalizations of why it's okay to get rid of something, even if it's a gift or something you used to love. To thank the item for serving its purpose, and move on. To have a house with only the things you love the most, things that spark joy, and you will never have to tidy again. It may seem like a lot of 'throw things away', but I actually read it as the converse-to consciously decide what you want to keep.
I haven't started the method yet, but I am excited to go through it. There is a certain order of what to go through, a lot of practical tips, and examples from her clients. It's like a capsule wardrobe, home, etc. but without arbitrary rules of how many of this or that to keep. The only criteria-keep what you love.
