“Gail Blanke offers inspiring ways to clear away the debris of your life-both physical and mental-to help you find peace, energy and a better vision of who you are.”—Provided by the publisher.

Amazon Description:

“Our lives are so filled with junk from the past-from dried up tubes of glue to old grudges-that it’s a wonder we can get up in the morning,” exclaims motivator, best-selling author, columnist, and life coach Gail Blanke.

“If you want to grow, you gotta let go,” is Blanke’s mantra; and that means eliminating all the clutter-physical and emotional-that holds you back, weighs you down, or just makes you feel bad about yourself.

In THROW OUT FIFTY THINGS she takes us through each room of the house-from the attic to the garage-and even to the far reaches of our minds. Through poignant and humorous stories, she inspires us to get rid of the “life plaque” we’ve allowed to build-up there.



  • That junk drawer (you know that drawer) in the kitchen? Empty it!
  • Those old regrets? Throw ‘em out!
  • That make-up from your “old” look? Toss it!
  • That relationship that depresses you? Dump it!

Once you’ve hit fifty-you’ll be surprised how easy it is to get there-and once you’ve thrown out that too-tight belt and too-small view of yourself, you’ll be ready to step out into the clearing and into the next, and greatest, segment of your life.
