This is a great book about how to tidy up your stuff and find the things you actually WANT in your life. It's particularly good if read before/after Marie Kondo's book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.
I found his examples, taking the stories of clients he has worked with, especially helpful.
It's easier to approach a project of this magnitude (decluttering your entire home, and letting go of things) when you can read about the experiences of other people who've gone through a similar process.
A really helpful book, with practical suggestions. Yet it's true strength is that the author doesn't expect people to be automatons. He has some sense that there's something else going on when people get attached to objects. That said, I disagree with him on photographs and some personal objects/writing, e.g. letters. If you want to keep some of your personal/family history, you can't throw every image/letter out.
Loved this book. It gets straight to the point on how clutter may be adversely affecting your life. There are loads of great exercises aimed at getting you motivated and working on the problem. Highly recommended.
This book is powerful; spiritual and psychologically based. I cannot recommend it enough! My apartmant has never looked better and I feel great!
A good, basic book on how to start the decluttering process. The layout was a bit plain for my taste, but it serves its purpose.
Thanks to this wonderful book, my two useless large stuffed animals formerly taking up space in my bedroom,are now ready to be donated. He doesn't mince words in commanding you to get rid of all that stuff you are uselessly hanging on to which is cluttering your home and your life!
There are books that advise you how to organize and store your stuff. There are books that analyze why you hoard stuff, but do not help you manage it or get rid of it. Clutter Busting is not one of these. It is a book of practical psychology: The author gives tips on how to identify clutter, and once it has been identified, deal with it swiftly and effectively. His central theme is that physical clutter begets mental clutter, anxiety and depression and one must eliminate clutter and simplify one's possessions in order to be able to think clearly and find freedom.
I enjoyed how the author talked to me directly. He gives tasks to completed and urges you to "do it now". The most important concept that he advocates is to "let go: stuff is just stuff". Once you get that and how it's the emotional attachments that you have to the item, you naturally start releasing. He highly praises you for who you are and empowers you to be good to yourself - you deserve it!
I found it inspiring and I did some significant clutter busting, both internally and externally as a result of reading this book.
