Book Description

There comes a time in everyone’s life when you realize your life is too messy and you’re simply too busy. Clutter has taken over your life! If you’re living with anyone else, their clutter and hectic schedules affect your life as well.

Attempting to live a simple lifestyle with a family and children can be challenging. A messy house and a hectic schedule seem inevitable when you are raising a family.

Kids & Their Clutter takes a practical look at the excess and clutter that can be eliminated from our children’s lives. It covers topics such as breaking your child’s attachment to toys, video game addiction, and understanding older children and their clutter.

This book will give you tools to help lead your family on a journey to live with less.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much substance April 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author does disclose that she restructured blog entries for this book, but I was still surprised how much the content lacked. It was somewhat repetitive and touch minimally on minimalism; informal and not insightful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but short April 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the ideas in the book and was looking forward to lots of suggestions and tips, but unfortunately the book never really reached that level. The book is very short and mainly focused on anecdotes from the author's experiences with her own children. These are fine, but I would have liked to read MORE about everything. More stories from different families and how they have coped with different situations, more ways to overcome a certain obstacle etc. Now the book falls a bit short and remains a personal story of the author's struggles in introducing a less materialist lifestyle and less cluttered home.

I give 3 stars mainly because I think the basic ideas presented by the author are very sound. Just beware that the book does not give much more than those basic ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars So True August 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is right on the money when it comes to pointing out what causes the problem and has good ideas to fix it but unfortunately the parent is the one who is supposed to fix the mess. My kids are 11, 9, 7 and 18 years old. I believe in being proactive and taking responsibility for your on mess. I am happy to assist in getting them organized but not doing it over and over again. But she does have a couple of decent ideas on preventing the problem from happening in the from every happening. You just have to get the book before you get the kids or it's a lot more work for you than them.​

3.0 out of 5 stars A Few Good Points, Cluttered Writing June 18, 2014

The author makes a few good points in this book and it's a fairly quick read. That said, the writing is very cluttered and scattered. Could use more editing.

good ideas and principles shared, brief but helpful, like the children's interview about video game fast for a month-great idea.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good to get re-inspired for a clean out January 23, 2014

Good to dip into and get re-inspired for a purge and clean out. Nothing major here, but for the price its pretty good. Also nice to know your not the only one trying to resolve the problem of 'kid things'.

5.0 out of 5 stars I passed this on to my daughter January 5, 2013
By Jinni1
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read it first and then passed it on to my daughter who has two young boys. It is very difficult sometimes to stay ahead of the clutter, especially for working mothers and fathers. The book contained a lot of really helpful tips and it was perfect timing with Christmas and another expected onslaught of toys and books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, practical advice August 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well-written and concise book that offers practical advice about dealing with kids clutter. A perfect read for those with very young children, to start out with good habits. I wish I had this when I had babies. It also had great nuggets of wisdom for those with older children and clutter.

Faith Janes is a wife and mother of three living in a combined household of 10 with her parents, siblings, grandmother and various pets. They all live in a log home on 30 acres near Atlanta, GA.

It was the frustration of being overwhelmed with two houses worth of clutter that initially led her family on a path to minimalism. Everyone's version of minimalism will look different. What's radical change for you may not be radical for someone else, but the foundational truth of prioritizing what's important remain the same.

Faith's blog ( is full of practical advice for simply family living. She writes about pursuing "Less Mess, More Life" through minimalism.

Whether you need help dealing with physical clutter, mental clutter, or simply a cluttered schedule, Faith will show you how to simplify them all.
