Simple Steps Group

Has anyone read Simple Steps by Lisa Lelas, Linda McClintock, and Beverly Zingarella? I just read it. It seems really good. It is a book with steps outlined to get control of clutter and your life with in a ten week time period. Anyone interested in doing the steps with me? There are 4 steps a week ie- drink water.. walk 20 min a day.. save $2.00 a day and clear one drawer a week.
There is a web site too.. www.simplestepsprogram.com
Let me know:

I haven't read this book but it sounds interesting.
So you're looking for someone to be "accountable" to? And for a little mutual encouragement? I'd be up for that.
I've been reading more than my share of home organizing books myself lately, which tells me that something is a little out of whack. A lot of times I feel like if I read about organizing it gives me that bit of motivation I need to get going on my own!

That would be great...if I buy ONE MORE NEW BOOK I think my house will explode (never mind my DH ) I can hear him now: "But you haven't read all the books you ALREADY OWN!" Too true.
