Clutter. We all have it and know we should do something about it. Why don't we?

That is the first topic Lipp covers in this book. She helps us understand the why of clutter. She explores why we are hesitant to get rid of stuff. Reasons include fear, guilt, not wanting to admit defeat – and those are just a few. She also writes about why we buy and the longing we have that cannot be fulfilled by stuff. She helps us when we need to deal with other people's stuff and avoid mistakes.

Her philosophy includes making room for what's really important. She relates our accumulation of clutter to the state of our spirit. Clutter leads to a lack of peace and to stress. She shares the advantages of neighborhood sharing and not owning everything ourselves.

Yes, she does finally give us her strategy for clutter management and the three question test. Her plan is a little different in that it concentrates on what we want to keep. (She has included her three-box, two-bag system from a previous book in an Appendix.) She also includes a clothing strategy on how to get to a minimum yet useful wardrobe. She provides a strategy for paper clutter in an Appendix.

She finally reminds us that the de-cluttering process is not simply to get rid of stuff but to uncover and appreciate the treasures we have, making room for the best things in our life.

The important part of this book is the reasons we have clutter. If we don't address those reasons, even though we de-clutter once, it will be back. Reading this book will hurt but we'll be better for it. Reading the reasons why we buy and why we keep stuff was very insightful.

If you are ready to be intentional about your stuff, read this book.

I've been a fan/follower of Kathi Lipp ever since I attended my first MOPS conference 6+ years ago. She's so relatable, both as an author and as a speaker, that you feel like you've been best friends forever, and you could just invite her right into your living room for a chat. Well, I mean, you could if your living room didn't constantly look like a bomb just went off. But since it does, well, you won't be inviting ANYONE over any time soon, now will you? Not that I'd know anything about that <ahem>.

At last year's conference, I laughed and cried through her workshop on organization and then picked up a copy of her then-most-recent book, "The Get Yourself Organized Project", and I loved it so much that I absolutely jumped at the chance to get a preview copy of "Clutter Free". Both books are among the best organization books I have ever read. Because Kathi GETS it. She's not some neat-freak organization guru issuing proclamations from her perfectly-organized office in her magazine-cover-worthy home, telling us mere mortals that if we would only do X and maybe Y, our homes would stay clean, and we would be more worthy as human beings. No, Kathi has struggled with clutter and organization, and she understands what it's like to be the mother of young kids and trying to keep the clutter from consuming the house and absorbing the children. She's tried and failed at the methods the "experts" recommend, and then she regrouped and figured out that, even if she bought a cute shoe cabinet to go behind the couch, her family's shoes were still going to end up in a pile by the door until she found a system that would allow the shoes to be organized by the door.

There are a lot of resources available on clutter. I've skimmed some, read some and left it at that. Kathi Lipp's book Clutter Free is a well written handbook on clutter, not just to address your current state of clutter, but to address the issues behind WHY you have clutter. I have found the techniques and insight in this book to be life-changing. If you are a tub-buying stasher, you may want to avoid this book. It will challenge your tub buying stashing efforts in a BIG way - i.e. stop buying tubs! By the time I reached Chapter 6, I thought Kathi Lipp had some sort of secret access to the thought processes of my mind and shopping experiences. The book is 25 chapters long with three worthwhile appendices. The first appendix provides you information you need to get started with Kathi's Three-Box, Two-Bag System. No, you are not going out to buy new tubs for this system!!! Although I actually found I had some empty ones that work nicely for the process. I'm an easily distracted individual when I'm cleaning an area. The three-box, two-bag system helps me to stay focused and in the same location as my clutter I'm attempting to clear. Appendix 2 helps you address paperwork clutter and Appendix 3 helps you learn to pack for vacation and business trips without more luggage than you can carry, pull, load and check at the airport. The 25 chapters will help you identify how much your clutter is costing you, why you buy the things you buy, why you keep the things you keep and approaches to get rid of stuff. I've recommended this book to many friends. I don't plan on giving up my copy anytime soon. If you are ready for a life-changing read - order this book today, it may save you from multiple more costly purchases later.

I received this book for free in exchange for this review.
