The Way to a Perpetually Organized Lifestyle

There are many valid approaches to creating neat and tidy spaces, but these approaches tend to fail over time because they suggest that we dispose of our stuff, and most of us love our stuff! Marla Stone’s fresh and friendly approach, based on her work as both a professional organizer and a former psychotherapist, goes beyond

I appreciate this book's attention to the emotional dimensions of clutter, but the author spends more time talking about identifying and fulfilling your dreams than she does about organizing your stuff. She has some good advice, like when she encourages people to use language that encourages action and competence ("I will fold the laundry") instead of stress and obligation ("I need to fold the laundry"), but even though insights like this are worthwhile, the book is too focused on external life ...more

The book is focused on a pressing but yet surprisingly sparingly approached issue of dealing with clutter at home. Though The Clutter Remedy is much more than just a step-by-step tutorial of getting rid of the things you don't need. One of the key highlights of the book that makes it a must-read, is that it provides an in-depth study on why we hoard things. The author reveals the inner psychological processes in us that manifest themselves in a form of cluttered living spaces. As someone with a ...more

The Clutter Remedy Review

In her book “The Clutter Remedy” Marla Stone says, “Clutter camouflage can lead to unintentional and directionless life.” More than just a book telling you how organize and categorize your stuff (although she does this too) – Marla encourages you to determine your core values, remove negative feelings and become comfortable with your younger self before trying to tackle the intimate and emotional task of de-cluttering. Full of tips and helpful lists, this book is more

This is a great read for anyone needing to get better organized that wants to KEEP their stuff but easily locate it when needed. But what’s better is Marla teaches you how to showcase the things you really love and want to see every day. It is written in a very easy to follow, step by step process. I think everyone could benefit from reading it, organization is the key to a busy life! Especially as a working parent!

Just finished The Clutter Remedy book packed with not only tips to get organized but a clear path to my true destination in life. All the times I attempted to get my garage organized or my tools or my desk never really stuck. In one day the strategy Marla Stone explains actually makes perfect sense and I realize now it’s the only way to live clutter free. I’m passing this stuff on to everyone I know including my employees. I liked the last chapter most about what can block you from staying ...more

Finally..... a real solution!
Whether you live in a mansion with a designated “clutter room” or a tiny house where one thing out of place creates instant clutter, the practical, clever solutions in this book will get you organized forever!
After reading Marla Stone’s book, I was so inspired to get started that I skipped Black Friday and began organizing!
Thank you for a great remedy to the clutter in our lives!

Love the psychological aspect to cleaning out the clutter! Always impressed by authors who write to the many levels we operate on. Succinct, articulate and a quick read that will improve your life if you follow its principles.

The book straightened out everything about my life and my space. New author Marla Stone was a social worker and psychotherapist for a total of 17 years. She knows people and figured out how to help them in every way possible.

The introduction is clear about what to expect from the book. The first chapter goes over inner emotional clutter issues with specific techniques to heal deep emotional wounds. I cleared up something bothering me from childhood. Marla Stone, the author, worked with military

The Clutter Remedy... this text approaches organization and clutter in a different method than most other books, allowing readers to keep the items they love and find homes for everything. The author discusses psychological and emotional aspects of clutter and how to overcome its hold. A few guidelines are provided for shopping smarter and organizing items, but the overall feel is just find a new basket or tote for your junk.

Love this book! Marla Stone really knows her stuff and I have personally seen her in action in someone’s home. She can transform a space and has a plan put in place to help the client stay organized and love his or her space! This is a must read especially when you learn about wants vs. needs.
