Conclusion

Introduction

America seems awash in clutter. Maybe it’s a byproduct of our fast-paced lifestyle and still (despite the recent economic downturn) materialistic society. We have professional de-clutter services and popular television shows about the most extreme form of clutter, such as Hoarders on A&E. It’s something that every household grapples with because it’s more than a little disorganization or a little procrastination; it’s a real problem.

When we allow our homes to become cluttered, they are no longer a peaceful sanctuary where we can escape the stresses of our jobs and the rest of the world. They aren’t pleasant for us to live in—or for our friends to visit. They make our home lives complicated and stressful.

Are you tired of losing your car keys, reading glasses, remote control, and temper in all the clutter? Does the thought that, I really need to take care of that mess, drag you down every day and hold you back from enjoying your time at home? Would you like to get ready for work or school each morning quickly, confident that you can find whatever you need when you need it?

If so, you are ready to learn the tricks that will help you turn every room in your home into an organized, tranquil place to be. De-clutter experts claim that you will not only improve your quality of life, you can save up to three hours a day, just by being more organized. What’s more, you’ll pick up some always-welcome cash when you sell your unused items on Craigslist or at a yard sale.

More peace of mind, less stress, more time and money.

If that sounds like a good deal to you, read on.

Why Be Clutter-Free?

As you’ll learn in the following chapter, getting your life to a clutter-free state will provide an abundance of benefits. You will save yourself time and money, help local charities, and make the world a more sustainable place. Won’t you sleep better at night when you check those accomplishments off your to-do list?

What is Clutter?

According to dictionary.com, clutter can be either a verb or a noun, and each form can have several meanings. None of them are good. You aren’t going to look at any of the clutter definitions on that site and say, Boy, howdy, I could use more of that in my life! For our purposes, we’ll stick with a couple of the basic definitions:

adisorderlyheaporassemblage;litter:

a stateorcondition of confusion.

I’d like to take it step further, and add this refinement: Clutter isn’t just possessions that you leave lying around in a disorderly fashion. If you have possessions that you have tidily tucked away in neatly stacking storage bins—but that you rarely look at and never benefit from—that’s clutter, too. Everything you own owns you back, and if you don’t have a really good reason to keep something, it’s just wasting space in your home and chipping away at your peace of mind.

Let’s be clear. This book isn’t going to be about organizing your clutter. It’s about being free of it. It’s about changing the way you think about your possessions, time, and energy.  It’s about getting rid of things and habits that are holding you back so that you can move ahead to live a simpler, happier, and more productive life. So, let’s add a definition to those above:

unused possessions that provide no fulfillment

What? Three More Hours a Day?

Some de-clutter professionals—and there are plenty of them around—maintain that you can save yourself three hours a day by de-cluttering your life. That’s because you have less junk to take care of, are less likely to lose things, and can maintain a more organized life.

Each and every possession that you have needs some kind of care. Even if it isn’t an ornate silver tea set that requires careful polishing, it probably needs to be cleaned from time to time, maintained, or (at the very least) stored. So, the more things you own, the more mental and physical energy gets sapped by them.

That’s why it’s important to take time to consider what you own and in what form you want to own it. How many times have you lost half (or more) of your Saturday running errands? Your

    Clutter Be Gone! De-clutter and Simplify Your Home (And Keep It That Way) Starting Today! by Kimberly Wilson My new buddy is probably one of the most easy breezy ways ( and the most painless) to finally let go of the stuff that I cling to so desperately. The author's straight forward yet compassionate advice was like a reassuring hug every step of the way. She absolutely had an answer for everything as she helped me know where to start, why to start and even what to start with. This little trooper has handily made it's way into my spiritual toolbox and I would recommend it to anyone like myself that has so much stuff they just don't know what to do. Thanks, Kimberly it really made all the difference.Love & Light,Riki Frahmann

    Clutter Be Gone! is a short book on, not surprisingly, how to rid your house (and life) of clutter. The author first discusses what clutter is, what it costs us, and why we can't do much about it. She then proceeds to talk the reader through getting rid of the clutter and suggests strategies for various rooms.Overall, this book is similar to others on de-cluttering. The basic premise is -- you have too much stuff you don't use, so get rid of it. What is refreshingly different in this book is the tone (not whining or dictatorial) and the methods of tackling the problems. The method is straight forward and honest -- not a gimmick like work for 15 minutes and then rest. (The rest ends up being days so nothing gets done!) I have a clutter problem and this book has inspired me to work on several areas, one of which is now clutter-free!There are two minor complaints. First, this is a short book, which may be why it worked for me, but I would have liked a bit more on the psychology of why we keep clutter. Second, for bookaholics (as in the physical book 'collectors'), the author's suggestion is to go with ebooks. This is not the most realistic of suggestions.I'm very glad I won this book and would recommend it to others.

    I read this book and found it to be helpful on some pointers. After I read this I used some of the tips and got rid of quite a few items to a thrift store. I am a little more organized as well. Thanks for a good read.

    The initial problem with this book is that it is American, but I live in England! The result is that a proportion of the advice is really not relevant to me. Having said that, the 'stuff' that was relevant was REALLY relevant! The book does what it says on the cover, it tells you how to have a much more liveable house. I liked the way it was broken down into bitesized pieces. Take each room a step at a time instead of overloading yourself with the whole lot at once. I have recommended the book to my daughter - which is very high praise!

    This is a great book to help you go from room to room and really de-clutter and simplify your life. I have found some very helpful tips. I highly recommend this book for mothers or for those who simply want some good researched advice on organizing a home. It offers simple-to-follow guidelines to simplify your home, room by room. A+ on this one I know it has and will help me get my house under control.

    Are you someone who looks at your house and just sighs? Maybe you’re someone that runs around the house looking for car keys or your child’s shoes. You might even have that pile on your table just for “junk” mail that refuses to stop coming in the mail. You know that you need to reorganize your home, but you just don’t know where to start or how you will make the time. This book is amazing. This book has taught me how to conquer my home room by room when I didn’t think I had the time to spare. It will teach you where to begin, even if you only have 15 minutes at a time. It breaks each room in your home down for you. It is not a demanding book either, saying you must throw everything away. Kimberly even said, “I’ll trust you to determine what qualifies as living room trash.” You have a keep pile along with the “not keep” pile broke into four sections. If you’re anything like me, you have started cleaning your home and somehow everything in your “get rid of” pile ended back throughout your house. This book is written in first person point-of-view and she has been there. She doesn’t just give advice for rooms within your home, but also your garage and computer. You will be happy with this book, I know I am. I know I have enough stress in my life and since de-cluttering, I feel so much better happier in my home. I am no longer stressing about whether or not I should be watching a movie with my children or cleaning my home. The skills I have learned in this book have helped me to keep everything in its place. Of course not always, but that’s what the 15-30 minutes on Saturdays are for. I go through my house with a quick overview and make sure that I haven’t misplaced something while I was in a hurry.
