Review

"A warm, easy-to-follow guide that offers actionable steps to creating a calm, prayerful, stress-free life." -Simple Grace Magazine

"As women, we have the tendency to overstuff our lives, our schedules, and our homes with things that really aren't beneficial. And our souls suffer because of our unwillingness to let go. Ruth Soukup tackles this issue head-on and gives practical steps to be purposeful with the stuff we let in our sacred spaces. You'll be thankful you chose this book!" -Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Best Yes.

"We live in a world that's constantly telling us we need to do more, have more, and be more.  It's exhausting and consistently the only thing we ever have more of is stress.  Ruth Soukup is like a breath of fresh air as she calls us to declutter our lives and embrace simplicity.  If you find yourself feeling tired, stressed or overwhelmed, then let the words found in the pages of this book wash over you and take a deep breath.  It's the literary equivalent of a bubble bath and a hot cup of coffee on a cold morning."-Melanie Shankle, New York Times Bestselling Author of Nobody's Cuter Than You

"Through powerful story and practical application, Ruth Soukup will help you unstuff your home. But more than that, her words will inspire you to live your most fulfilling life by discarding anything that distracts you from it."-Joshua Becker, bestselling author of The More of Less

"Readers, whether they're neatniks or clutter queens, will appreciate Soukup's
relatable approach, honest sharing, and down-to-earth suggestions. I confidently recommend this title." -Christy Pitney, CBA Retailers Review

From the Author

Friend, I get it.  I really do.

You're not just overwhelmed bythe physical clutter that has been filling up your home, but stressedout by an overbooked schedule that sometimes feels out of your control.You're frustrated by trying to live up to other people's expectations of what your home is supposed to be.  You're tired of guilt and exhaustedby relationships that seem to suck the life out of you.

And thevery last thing you want is a book that will make you feel worse aboutyourself, or one that's going to hand you another massive list of things to do.

Believe me, I have been there too.

The thingis--I'm not an expert on decluttering or a professional organizer.  Idon't have some crazy unattainable ideal of what our homes should be, or what our schedules should look like.  I'm a mom, wife, daughter,friend, and small business owner who is busy trying to juggle all thepieces of an often chaotic life, just like you.

And Unstuffed was not written to make anyone feel guilty about a home that is lessthan perfect.  Instead, it offers a strong dose of encouragement through personal stories and practical, easy-to-implement ideas for taking back your life from the STUFF that is weighing you down.

It offerspermission to NOT do it all, and much-needed relief from the constantpressure to perform.  It's room for your soul to breathe, and I trulycan't wait to share it with you.

My hope and prayer for this book is that it will set you free--free from guilt, free from overwhelm, and free from the expectations of a world consumed by STUFF.

xoxo, Ruth

The first thing to remember about UNSTUFFED is that it is not really about getting rid of clutter. Yes of course, the author does talk about getting rid of unwanted stuff, but that's not the real point. The real point, Ms. Soukup explains, is that you get rid of this stuff so that you can see what is REALLY important in life. It could be relationships, it could be your family, it could be lots of things--but the clutter is getting in the way.

The author freely admits that she really feels the attraction of accumulating things:

I love to get stuff.
I love to give stuff.
I love the idea of stuff.
I love getting a good deal on stuff.
Stuff is pretty.
Stuff makes me happy.

Of course, we should strive to simplify, but here's the key: "Becoming unstuffed, truly unstuffed, is much more than that. It’s changing the way we look at our homes and the stuff we live with. It’s changing the way we look at our schedules and the stuff that fills our time. It’s changing the way we look at our relationships..."

As for the practical ideas, the author presents 10 simple habits, which alone can go a long way to help you simplify your life. They are not earth-shattering ideas; rather, they are simple but effective ways to achieve a lot for a little time. Here are a few: making your bed properly, promptly trashing junk mail, or even just cleaning the kitchen sink. Each of these habits only take a minute or two, but they are a good step to simplifying and de-cluttering your home.

Much of the emphasis in UNSTUFFED is how to deal with clutter in your family--especially in buying your kids things. The author suggests that you teach the kids the value of money, by helping them to associate the reward with the effort.

I like pretty things.I love shopping for sales. I want what others have. The only way I have found the strength to stand up to these likes, loves, wants is to know that what I’m choosing is better.

In her newest book entitled, Unstuffed, New York Times Bestselling Author, Ruth Soukup offers a practical guide for anyone looking to de-clutter their life.

Ruth understands that although the de-cluttering process starts in our homes, it must also carry into our hearts and our habits. Through honest storytelling and fantastic application questions at the end of each chapter, Ruth invites her readers to journey with her towards a beautifully uncluttered life.

She asks hard questions and offers practical solutions, never losing sight of the fact that Unstuffed isn’t a destination but rather a determination to live our best life.

A life that is not cluttered with possessions has room for productivity and prosperity. Ruth inspires her readers to make small, purposeful changes that impact the quality of their life from a multitude of different angles.

This book is about so much more than de-cluttering your closet! Ruth also tackles tough issues like managing stress, building healthy relationships, understanding why you impulse buy and dealing with pack-rat children.

As a person who takes de-cluttering very seriously and has for more than a decade, this book confirmed what I have known in my heart for a long time: Cutting the clutter out of our lives is the first step towards peace, tranquility and financial freedom.

Ruth is genuine and authentic, and I would not recommend this book to you if I didn’t believe it was going to help you.

I have read many home organization books but to be honest, they are usually hard to read and more of a checklist instead of digging deeper into the real issues. This book has three sections – Home, Mind and Soul. In the Home section, Ruth really relates to her readers. Explaining how we feel obligated because of gifts and overwhelmed with too much stuff. She gives lots of tips for cleaning – my favorite was “…focus on only one area”- best advice ever. She goes on to explain that no matter how much or how little you do, everything is an accomplishment. I constantly need a reminder to live a meaningful life instead of filling my time with unimportant tasks. Soul is the third part of her book, which touches on friendships, wellness and balance – each an important part of every person.

This book is a quick read but I highly recommend taking your time and marking pages for reference. In addition to the amazing writing, Ruth offers worksheets, checklists and other information for decluttering your life. She will also be offering a DVD study to go along with the book. I can’t wait to check it out.

I read this book in two sittings over a 24-hour period. It's that good! Ruth writes with honesty from a heart of caring and friendship. I love that she shared her own struggles, most of which I can relate to personally, and how she stepped out of the clutter of life and into the fresh air of an unstuffed life. This is much more than a book on organizing, although you will find that within it's pages, it's a book about freeing ourselves from the things that tie us down from being the best version of ourselves. Ruth covers unstuffing our homes and then expands upon cleaning out to include other things we often drown in: toxic relationships, too full inboxes, too much paper and paperwork, and schedules that are joy draining instead of joy bearing. She also speaks to the whole of our lives by sharing the wellness routine that will lead not necessarily to great abs but to a balanced life. The capstone of her book deals with the state of our spirit and our need for letting go of the need to do overdo. She shares to whom and why we should turn to fill our spirits with the true source of a joy filled life. Buy this book. Read this book. Put its wisdom filled pages into practice and be changed for the better! I feel differently just from reading it yesterday and look forward to putting the practical skills shared into daily use.
