"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

From the Author
You're not just overwhelmed by the physical clutter that has been filling up your home, but stressed out 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 exhausted by relationships that seem to suck the life out of you.
And the very last thing you want is a book that will make you feel worse about yourself, or one that's going to hand you another massive list of things to do.
Believe me, I have been there too.
The thing is--I'm not an expert on decluttering or a professional organizer. I don'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 the pieces of an often chaotic life, just like you.
And Unstuffed was not written to make anyone feel guilty about a home that is less than 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 offers permission to NOT do it all, and much-needed relief from the constant pressure to perform. It's room for your soul to breathe, and I truly can'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.

After decluttering our houses she shows us how to declutter friendships. She shows us how sleep is important to our health and other ways to destress our lives. The author finishes with an emphasis on the spiritual and how she became a Christian.
Most every part of this book was helpful to me. And, though I may not agree with everything she wrote, and some things are hard for me to do (like letting go of things I feel too guilty to throw away), the author has shown great wisdom and written a well-organized and spiritual book.
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.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 15, 2018
In the Home section, Ruth lays out her Clutter FREE framework and gives the reader a unstuffed weekend challenge. She also deals with how to handle all the clutter that children seem to create.
In Mind she writes about saying no (and references Lisa TerKurst's book The Best Yes ), making time for rest (so important!), taming paperwork, and how to deal with gifts.
In Soul, Ruth writes about friendship, stress, and spiritual matters. Ruth is a practising Christian, and she does reference the Bible a few times in this book, but it isn't until the very end that her faith becomes quite apparent. And, even though I'm not a practising Christian, I understand her points and how they could be applied to my own spiritual path.
The biggest strength of this book is all the resources and bonuses it comes with. There is a page in the back that tells you how to find them, and I strongly suggest you do. The workbook and study guide are both excellent.
To be totally honest, there isn't anything really new in Unstuffed. However, it is still a great book to read if you want to get started unstuffing your life and need some motivation, not only to actually take action to also to clarify your why.
