There was a lot of humor,but the information was amazing.She gets to the root of WHY we have clutter,not just how to get rid of it.Kathi is very honest about her continued struggle and is very non-judgmental.I wasnt sure about this book when I ordered(have read many other clutter books,but they were so unrealistic for me)but I am so glad I took the chance on this book.Kathi is very down to earth,realistic and motivating.I recommend this book for anyone who wants to change,but is easily overwhelmed by their stuff!!

Book Summary: If youve ever wished you could clear out your clutter, simplify your space, and take back your life, Kathi Lipps new book has just the solutions you need. Building off the success of her The Get Yourself Organized Project, this book will provide even more ideas for getting your life and your stuff under control. Do any of these descriptions apply to you? You bought a box of cereal at the store, and then discovered you have several boxes at home that are already past the best by date. You bought a book and put it on your nightstand (right on top of ten others youve bought recently), but you have yet to open it. You keep hundreds of DVDs around even though you watch everything online now and arent really sure where the remote for the DVD player is. You spend valuable time moving your piles around the house, but you can never find that piece of paper when you need it. Your house makes you depressed the moment you step into it.
Review: This was an interesting take on clutter. Unlike previous books I have read this one took on the reason for collecting. I liked the approach of compare and contrasting done between the Author and her friend. This was a readable approach. While some of the ideas may be the same the reasoning behind it is fresh and made me thing through things differently. The last time I decluttered there were things that had a place and was still loved but it was discarded due to a more streamline way of thinking. I now hold a little tighter to things because I had not read this book.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Harvest House Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

Oh, this book went so beyond a how-to book. This book, through witty stories I could very well relate to, made me really think about the decisions I make regarding what's in my house and what I bring in to it. There were plenty of chapters I finished with the thought, "How did Kathi know me so well? Has she been snooping in my house?" Obviously not. But, to me it was obvious that she'd had a lot of real experience with clutter and finding freedom from it.

Do you have stuff? Is it all over the place? Do you wonder how you will ever sort through it all? Kathi Lipp, along with some of her friends, have tackled those exact questions and have found some (hard) truths. Discussing the why, what and how of clutter, Clutter Free examines the process of accumulating clutter, the weight of carrying clutter and finally, the freedom of losing that clutter. Straight-forward talk and techniques help to simplify your space and take back your life.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Having had to climb out from under the pressure of clutter herself, Kathi Lipp definitely understands and appreciates the thoughts, feelings and work associated with clutter. Acting as a coach, cheerleader and friend, she gently yet firmly confronts the many issues relating to clutter. Personally, I particularly liked the advice of use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without as a general principle of decreasing clutter AND saving money. Sure to hit home with many readers, Clutter Free will certainly help with the New Years resolutions concerning clutter.
