Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a blend of expert advice and kitchen-table wisdom for anyone seeking to unclutter their life. This book is a gem." (―Barry J. Izsak, President, National Association of Professional Organizers)

"Katherine Gibson firmly believes in living a life free of excess. Her simple easy-to-digest book covers everything from uncluttering space...to uncluttering relationships with your friends, your work, and ultimately yourself." (―Milwaukee Sentinel)

"While the author is not a therapist, she has much to teach the mental health community in this ground-breaking work. Until I read Unclutter Your Life, I felt overwhelmed by the amount of space...physically and emotionally...that I was 'renting' to things that I don't need in my life. What's really amazed me is that I've put many of Gibson's 'clutter buster' suggestions to the test, and they work!" (―Mark Sichel, CSW, author of Healing From Family Rifts)

"Gibson mixes practical expert advice with her own personal stories. Fun, informative, with a bonus list of organizing resources." (―Style at Home)

Gibson has written an inspiring book on cleaning your clutter and creating more space and time for the life you want. I loved her book and I believe it will motivate most people to get off the couch, get rid of all those things they don't need, and clear some toxic relationships in the meantime. This is the best anti-clutter book I've read in a while (and I am always looking for more of them!)

While the author is not a therapist, she has much to teach the mental health community in this ground breaking work.
It's been all too easy to clutter my life with possessions, projects, papers, and people. Until I read Unclutter Your Life, I felt overwhelmed by the amount of space ...physically and emotionally...that I was "renting" to things that I don't need in my life. What's really amazed me is that I've put many of Gibson's "clutter buster" suggestions to the test, and they work! I can see clearly now.

Not to be a grinch, but I would like to underline that this is a book of ESSAYS and rather simple advice often found in organizing articles and books. The essays are gently humorous or insightful, as you will see from glancing around in the book (function above), and the writing is nice enough. But answers to real quandaries are best found in other books, for example the surprisingly good "Conquering Chronic Disorganization" by Judith Kolberg.

Sitting at my desk, trying not to focus on the piles of scattered papers, post it notes, and sundry items that have no business being in my work environment, I know I need help.
Enter Katherine Gibson's book "Unclutter Your Life".
"Unclutter Your Life" has so many wonderful recommendations on organization, and they are all - one step at a time - suggestions that I really believe I can put into practice.
Katherine offers a chatty, friendly way of advising how you can make transformations not only with the physical clutter, but getting rid of the mental clutter that hogtie our emotional space.
Obviously the practical guidelines are important, but I liked the way Catherine explained the mindset of emotional dilemmas that lead us into the "clutter quagmires" we entrap our lives in, and the guilt sometimes associated with trying to free ourselves.
Just like any problem, understanding the source, goes a long way in learning how to deal with the difficulty.
This was a very enjoyable read, but also a practical resource guide you will want to reference many times over.
