5.0 out of 5 stars I really like the holistic approach September 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If there is any book you need on decluttering, this is the one. Why? Because it takes you by the hand, explaining the reasons you clutter, the impact clutter has (the financial one really struck a chord with me), helping you draw up a plan and execute it in a way that is not stressful. Decluttering is healing -- that's why I love the holistic approach of this book. Clutter is so much more than physical stuff; it always has its origins in our mental state, reflecting on many areas of our lives.

This ebook is very well-written and contains a lot of gold nuggets from someone who is unafraid to share her personal trials and tribulations. I especially like the tips on organizing the home office and computer since these form more or less the nerve center of my home. Getting in touch with nature is a great tip, too. I like to go camping and every time I get home and look around the place, I think: why do I need all this stuff?

In short: this book has been and is still being a great help in decluttering my life, and not just my physical belongings. It helps reducing my stress and gives me a feeling of being in control. I look forward to more books from Michelle Stewart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Book For Simplifying Your Life September 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wouldn't call myself a hoarder but I do have to admit that I'm a bit of a pack rat. Lately I've been focusing on getting rid of some of the things that I don't need in my life and this book was really helpful. I especially liked the part about clutter in your home and life having a "cost" and this cost can be in many forms. This part of the book was really eye opening to me.

I was surprised that this book even went into decluttering your mind which in turn helps to promote a less stressful life. I hadn't thought of this aspect before reading this book but it really makes a lot of sense.

I'm excited that after reading this book, I feel like I'm armed with some tips and techniques that will help me clean up my home and life so that I can live in a more harmonious world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than physical decluttering September 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've had difficulty cleaning my house for the past 3 years. I bought this book to learn some tips on decluttering to organize my home, but what I found, after reading some chapters, was a lot more than expected.

The author explains really well what is the psychology behind clutter. Unless you address it, clutter will eventually take over and cause feelings of being overwhelmed and stressed.

But Michelle not only talks about physical clutter in the book. She also talks about dealing with mental clutter, social clutter and media clutter. She's right: clutter is everywhere, not only in our homes, but in different areas of our lives, and we need to address each one of those to live life with less stress and to work with greater focus.

This was a great book indeed. Read this book before attempting to declutter you life, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clutter can cost us more than we consider... September 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been cultivating a minimalist mindset for the past few years and it all started with a desire to declutter my home and get rid of all the stuff in my life that wasn't absolutely necessary. The result of that pilgrimage has been the ability to get rid of stuff I no longer need on a weekly basis, and the ability to not purchase or bring home stuff that I really don't need. It's been rather liberating, and it's been books like this that ultimately help me to see things in a much clearer perspective.

What I really like about this book is it's focus on the unhealthy nature of clutter in our lives and all the negative aspects that can be associated with accumulating too much stuff that we really do not need. In fact, decluttering can be a great stress reliever and that really comes through in the overall message of this book...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for organizing your life September 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I got this book because Im a slob and I seriously need to declutter my life. I also tend to be very disorganized and this helped me get my life back on track. There are also some good advice on getting rid of the stuff you don't need. Overall, a pretty good book and I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Rid Of The Clutter In Your Life September 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I got this book because I'm a productivity junkie, and a few more tips on organizing your life never hurt anybody.
Clutter is a major killer of productivity. It leaves behind a disorganized house, and a disorganized house leads to a disorganized mind.
The author of this book takes a few personal experiences from her life and translates them into a set of interesting tips on getting rid of the stuff you don't need.

A very useful book indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best decluttering book I've read yet March 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've got a ton of declutter, organize, clean-up, simplify, etc. books. Maybe I should just throw out (or delete) all the books and learn to love my clutter?? Nah...

What I liked about this book were two specific things. First, I like that the author advocates clutter-busting in 15 minute chunks. Her reasoning is sound, at least for me...I am horrible about getting involved in clutter-busting and ending up with a bigger mess than I started with. I ALSO have the very bad habit of organizing like a mad woman and then leaving the area, not to return for 6 months or so, because I was so frustrated that I didn't get finished the first time. So, for me, the 15-minute burst idea is perfect. I can declutter enough that I feel like I am doing something, and then go on about my day knowing I accomplished a little bit toward my goal.

The second thing I really liked about this book was the suggestion to take photos. She had so many good uses for the photos - first take them to have a visual record of the existing clutter in your house, so you can come up with a clutter-busting game plan. Second, continue taking pictures after every clutter-busting session so you have a record of your daily progress. Finally, when you've successfully decluttered an entire area, take pictures of the neat, organized, clutter-free zone so you have both a record of your accomplishment and a visual of what the area should look like to refer to. If clutter starts creeping back in, you can refer to your "finished" pic to get it right out!!

I recommend this book over the many other clutter-busting books out there because the author has some practical tips that help you organize and declutter, and because she recognizes the impact clutter has on our whole lives.
