To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Lovely photographs in this book but in terms of being useful I didn’t find anything of help. Some of the cupboards shown are almost the size of my bedrooms and the amount of items stored is verging on ridiculous. Advice like store all your grapefruit scented toiletries together just made me sigh! If you’re looking for decluttering advice I feel this is one to avoid.
As far as pretty pictures and famous houses, sure, lots of them. As far as organizational tips, there's one: "buy bins, preferably our brand, and use them". There are much better decluttering/organising books out there, I'm really glad I got the kindle instead of the hardcover. Don't waste your money. Follow them on Instagram though, cause they're a laugh and a half
I bought this on a Kindle special offer for £1, curious at the mixed reviews. One or two pictures did stimulate me to think about how I could bring more order into my home, but the authors just endlessly repeat the same simple formula everywhere, and I find the result both boring and souless - the opposite of imaginative. I couldn't live in their home, even if I had the vast wealth needed for that degree of space in England. For £1 it may be worth a look, but unless you buy into their "do the same thing absolutely everywhere" with mechanical repetition, there must be better books out there.
I was surprised at how not helpful this book was. It really had not a lot of info beyond common sense. I knew everything from my own experience or from watching the show already. I'm saving it to gift to someone cuz it wasn't worth the hassle of returning.
