About the Author
I grew up in a house of chaos. This often made me ill. I think my OCD personality could not handle all of the stress the surrounding mess caused. I learned that if I just got control of the areas of my home that a lot of other things fell into place as well. I don't believe in getting rid of everything just to have to purchase it again later. My method is probably more of an organized kind of selective hoarding if you will. All I know is that it work for me. I hope that it works for you too!

Control your Clutter *****Grab This Book, You Will Use It!!!***: Hello Everyone, I am most definitely known for being temperamental about clutter and the cleanliness about my space, no matter where I am. So, I am most definitely not a novice when it comes to the points listed in this book. I agree with them all. Clutter and disorganization definitely interrupts the flow of your homes energy and without diverting into another subject let me just say I enjoyed this book.
Deciphering your “needs” and “wants’, is instrumental, as you will not only learn about yourself, but you will start to think before you make those unnecessary purchases from this point on. Without giving way the entire books information, Theresa Smith takes you through step by step organization instruction. From your kitchen to your living rooms, bedrooms, office space, bathrooms and more. Small strategies, suggestions and tips that one would think would be obvious (but come on, we all need help!!) are listed in a way to help the reader understand how and why to organize and ‘Control Your Clutter’.
I recommend this book to those who are completely unaware about where to begin and for those like me who could use extra tips and reminders on how to stay focused on being organized. I also encourage you to read this book to understand, that ‘it’s a group effort’, as Theresa mentions ‘when it’s time to get up and clean and straighten it is everyone’s responsibility, not just yours!’ Get your family, roommates and loved ones you live with involved. It not only makes for a better flowing living space but allows you more time to ACTUALLY ENJOY YOUR HOME & SPACE!!!.
My struggle is my home office. I tend to repeatedly touch files, information and emails without completing a task. My take away from this e-book was this chapter, and taking a designated time to unsubscribe from emails, clear files from my computer folders instead of just ignoring them because I didn’t think I had time. Emails for me are a huge part of my social, career and networking life and they can be overwhelming. During, my breaks and errands reading this e-book on my phone I scheduled 20 minutes 4 days in my week just to unsubscribe from email newsletters & etc., file emails and I make it my goal to continue to schedule time and to touch it once!! Read it! File It! Address it! Or, Shred it! IT WORKS!!!! Do not make the mistake of saying “I will get to it later…..’
Great convenient, easy to read and I recommend that we all Clear the Clutter, from our lives and space. Thanks Theresa!

I love the idea of going into each room and organizing things based on needs, wants, things to donate, etc. I also love her idea of starting from the left and working your way to the right. I have been there, when you walk in a room and don't know where to start. This book helps you figure out a plan, and stick to it. It is also a very quick read.
While some of the tips in this book are things that are common sense, and/or I already practice, there are a few things that I definitely learned and will put into practice. For example, I've been wanting to place an art piece on my living room table and I can't because I have magazines, coasters, and other crap there. It make sense to get baskets, or storage ottomans, as suggested in the book, to store under the table. Problem solved!
she starts off talking about the different types of clutter and gives personal examples of both how the clutter comes to be and how we can get control of our own.
The book is set up in chapters by room in the house.
Of particular interest was the section on craft rooms/spaces. Theresa really helped me think about all the supplies I have and if they will be of use to me.
Overall this is a great book to get someone started on the way to a clutter free home. No matter if you have a wee bit of clutter or you're in the pack rat stage this book is a great help!
I received this book at a discount for my honest review
I found myself at times happy because I already do some things recommended, and a couple times I felt myself disagreeing with a statement made, but overall, I found it helpful and even inspirational. I didn't tackle anything yet, just my first read through-but I plan to follow the system outlined. I've had several things pop into my mind that really should go. I'm the kind of person that has a lot of hobbies and goes from one to another and back....so I hate to get rid of stuff because I might use it someday! My husband is also a packrat, so I'm not sure how I'll get him to part with anything....but I can tackle what I can, and start there :)
So overall, there's good advice, she motivates while giving you a plan to help you take on the daunting task. The only reason I docked a star (wish I could give it 4.5 stars) was because the reading wasn't perfectly smooth at times. But I would definitely recommend this to others!
