I have followed Ruth Soukup first on the livingwellspendingless.com website and then later on Facebook, spoken to her in live Q&A Sessions, and she has recently started a member’s only website which is how I came to possess a copy of “31 Days to a clutter free LIFE”.
I opened the book immediately with fear and trepidation. My house is in chaos. I had five families living here last year and when those that left moved out, they didn't take all of their things. What a nightmare. I should have known that Ruth would come to the rescue again.
“31 Days to a clutter free LIFE” starts with some very straightforward rules for getting started, some may seem like common sense, but they are the rules that set the stage for success.
The book is laid out in friendly, easy to read steps that allow you skip the ones that don’t pertain to you (I don’t own a dining room so I skipped that). It shows photos and gives resources for ideas that are affordable (none of those hundred dollars of costs solutions to be found in this book).
The step tackle one area at a time and encourage you to take before and after photos so that you can celebrate your success.
The best thing for me about this book is that I can do this an hour a day if necessary, I don't feel a pressure to get it done right now. It is a great stand alone or supplement to all the things she teaches over at her blog.
My only criticism of this book is that the pictures are all in black and white. I would have liked to see some color.
I am already in the process of decluttering my home and I wake up and just want to squeal with delight every time another box of unwanted things goes out of my house or another tote is carefully labeled and put into it's place.
The book is a must have for the working mom, the expectant mother, the stay at home mom, the newlywed, and anyone that wants to overcome clutter in the home or, better yet, one who wants to learn how to manage it all before it becomes a problem.
After the purchase of this book, and realizing it couldn't help me with my clutter issues, a friend mentioned and lent The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Absolutely excellent! Again, as a Christian, I had no problem reading a book (it actually is a book and reads as such) that seems largely influenced by Shintoism, but in the end actually works at getting you to think and giving you the methods that actually work to truly declutter. One glaring difference is Marie Kondo states that if you go at it in full force, it will take about 6 months. That sounds much more realistic than 31 days.
So, after 3 months of regret, and the temptation to ask the author for my $9.50 back, I would suggest borrowing this book, or simply printing checklists from the internet. If you really want an effective book, checkout Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.
She uses a template and repeats it with EVERYTHING, the only new thing every chapter is one page about WHY you should keep the area of the day decluttered, and than the template. I read this for free, thank god, and I thought it was awful.
I was hoping for maybe ONE new idea, and all I got for new ideas was 'wash your PILLOWS every month, and throw them out every 6-12 months' that seems a bit extreme since she also tells you to cover them with an allergy pillow case, which are waterproof.... so why the hell would we waste our money on new pillows? I have pillows that are years old that are fantastic.
Also don't you dare let your PET sleep in your bedroom! Don't let them in your room at all! You know when you want to snuggle with your fluffy cat, or your sad and need a cuddle? Nope, don't let them in! Pets are like children to most people, you don't kick your kids out of your room if they wish to sleep with you. Cats are the best cuddlier, god forbid there's some fur to clean up.
Basically what you get when you pay for this book is, 31 things to declutter, a list you could easily Pinterest or find on YouTube, pictures of ideas how that area should look after, again Pinterest or YouTube, and a small tidbit of WHY you should keep the area clean and decluttered, again YouTube, Pinterest.
This is my first declutter book, so far, disappointed.
