I assumed that this book would be filled with actual advice for making oneself happier in the home. Instead, it was a bunch of random thoughts and quirky, off-the-mark anecdotes. While it did motivate me to purge my home of things I didn't need, and to get my office more organized, overall it just frustrated me. Most of her stories are about attempting to sit and write about happiness while being distracted by her children and ignoring her husband. This book is practically a blog.

Gretchen is very honest and down to earth...just like normal people. Her book was very helpful and enlightening. It motivated me to get organized and clean out a lot of unwanted clutter. I just needed a push.

"...It’s that “happier” that is the key. Because Rubin is already happy at home. She has a supportive husband, two lovely daughters, a very good job, no money problems, is more than passably good looking and appears to be in robust good health. Some of you nay-sayers out there will already be thinking: 'V for Vomit – she is altogether too perfect for my poor tattered little life'..."

Gretchen Rubin and I are definitely kindred spirits. I am a homebody, embrace my neighborhood, and regularly enjoy the cosy comfort of my home. I finally have a home environment that I looked forward to returning to everyday. In Happier at Home, I found many resolutions that I could add to my own life to increase my enjoyment in my home.
