This book might just be useful if you have:
- a big house
- enough money to commission bespoke fitted furniture from skilled craftsmen
- very little 'stuff', all of it chosen for visual effect
- a careful cleaner who dusts open shelves every day
and you find it helpful to be told (for example) that poisons should be kept under lock and key if there are children around, and that the first-aid box should be easily accessible.
For anyone who hasn't and doesn't it's a waste of money.

I've returned to this book whenever the fancy strikes me to get the house reorganized or decluttered. It is written in a down to earth sort of language keeping in focus the main message; how to get our house well organized and tidy, and how to keep it that way.

The author walks us through the dynamic process of living - from the scope of our first tiny apartment to the home of our blossoming and ever evolving family, and finally to the place we call home after our offspring leave the nest. Conran suggests that we use every transition (the process of moving in together, buying a new house, a renovation, and even an undesirable divorce) as an opportunity to sort through our stuff - throw or give a way, put in storage, or bring to life some old heirloom by putting it to new use within our dwelling.

Then when we've sorted out the keepers and gotten rid of the rest we need well thought out systems for storage; be it some nifty system within the walls or underneath the staircases, in shelves, boxes or baskets. The choices we make give character to our home. Room by room Conran guides us through the do's and don'ts of our living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom among others. He gives us a lot of pointers and illustrated examples on how to exploit the space of our house in the best possible fashion.

For years I had been thinking its about time to de-clutter my house and having eventually started needed some inspiration to maintain the momentum. This is the first Terence Conran book I have ever read, but it has certainly helped me focus in a practical way of what goes and what stays and then where the latter goes.

Of course the book contains a lot of advice, suggestions and designs for storage and is well illustrated, but you have to be sensible about it and read it in the context of your own home, space, possessions and budget. There is nothing new in Conran's philosophy which seems to hark back to the old proverb "a place for everything and everything in its place" and its refreshing to see this in a modern setting.

The title of the book says it all and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is struggling with clutter. And because its by Terence Conran it also looks good on a coffee table!
