That's a bit oversimplified

Do you remember, it was a few years ago now, I groused here at Christmas time about helpful "decorating tips" from the media, that sounded like they applied only to a small percentage of people with already-overstuffed lives?

Their idea of helpful advice hasn't changed much since then, at least in this revolutionary new report about decluttering and simplifying.
"Our research shows that happiness spikes when people take deliberate steps to make life more manageable and embrace a philosophy of voluntary simplicity.”
Seriously? I don't know exactly what the study studied, but those results seem to be kind of a no-brainer; isn't that what the whole first chapter of The Wind in the Willows is about?
But then we get to the practical advice.
“The most popular step is decluttering the house and getting rid of extra stuff...Other easy steps include managing emails, using a calendar system and even just ordering-in dinners occasionally.” 
I hope that was helpful.
