A must-read for anyone with emotional ties to "things". While I could see that this book is not for everyone, especially those who are organized, it is wonderful for those with emotional ties to clutter.
Kick the Clutter not only gives ideas for how to get rid of/organize the clutter, but also why we accumulate it in the first place. It is only once we address the emotional ties to the clutter (gift from a deceased parent? tie to childhood?)that we can truly let it go.
I feel like this is the firs
Skimming through this and reading some is exhausting. And not just a little intimidating. Its very thick. Its very perky! There are tips for putting away your kids stuffed animals in different colored hampers. Tips for storing stuff on top of the fridge, and locking up chemicals that are bad for kids (really!--not a huge news flash there) and keeping your holiday decorations separated by season--chronologically! Thanks but no from me.

This book veers from the clutter title and is really an idea
This book has some good ideas in it for managing clutter, but regurgitates them over and over to turn what could have easily been a ~100 page book into a whopping 450+ pages of repetition. At least is it a pretty quick read, and the chapter titles and index make it a decent resource if you need to refer back to something.
Holy Cow what a lot of information. While reading this book I got the courage to clean my laundry room. It looks so much better. For the last two years it has kind of been construction head quarters. Now it is a laundry room. I am going to clean out my make-up bag next. I am glad I read this book.
This is a big book, 472 pages. Most of the book is just common sense. There were some helpful hints on getting rid of your stuff. All I can say is the book was okay, but maybe I was expecting too much.
Full of lots of good tips that I've heard before. I mostly skimmed it for renewed motivation.
