If you've tried other organizing methods with little success, or if you are tired of piles of things to work through in long, marathon sessions, or if nothing has worked before to get the chaos in your house under control (and all you have to show for it is a bunch of crammed-full storage boxes crazily stacked in the corner of wherever), then this is the book for you. I was just looking in the discord server and people were literally just talking about it and her podcast. The hard thing about sticking to reading this book is that it will make you want to get up and go declutter! I have opened random doors and slammed them shut, feeling completely and totally overwhelmed, and then opened them again and worked my way through the clutter inside. The book gets a little repetitive as the same basic instructions are repeated for each room of the house, but there are some really valuable chapters on helping others (including kids!

Her systems and questions can help anyone, whether you just have one embarrassing room or whether your house is floor to ceiling with excess stuff. It helps that I am not personally saying no to everything but the container itself becomes the limit! So if you are a real person with a real home I reckon you would find this book helpful, as well as encouraging and funny! After talking about a decluttering mindset, Dana then gives you step by step decluttering instructions for every room in your home as well as decluttering tips pertinent to that specific space. In Decluttering at the Speed of Life, I’m putting my decluttering strategies into thorough, step-by-step instructions to help you work through your clutter, no matter how overwhelmed you feel.There is also practical decluttering advice that can be applied to helping older family members, kids or even friends declutter.

When you get to that place, if that container (shelf, closet, box) is already full, then you have to do one-in-one-out. The simple instructions and solutions for achieving and maintaining a manageable home are explained in "bite sized" chapters that inspire you to implement the strategies explained without feeling overwhelmed. White has you look at your living space as a series of containers - your house is a container, each room is a container, your closets are containers, your cabinets, chests of drawers and desks are containers, etc. However, they’re all boys, not sentimental in the least, and they don’t care about any of it… absolutely none of it!I identified with the author's stories about bringing more and more things into her house until pretty soon her house began to look like a storage unit. I know many people love the Marie Kondo books, but I couldn't get into her "spark joy" mantra because if I had to touch every item in my house to see if it sparks joy, I would never finish decluttering; actually, I wouldn't even start.

There is no stuff put aside in keep piles to deal with later so the house doesn’t become more messy in the process of decluttering. I was drawn to it during a difficult season in my life, health wise and relationally, when distracting myself with “stuff” was easier! And that totally logical thinking was how I ended up in a place where I couldn’t function in my own home. White gently explains how to shift your thinking while acknowledging the emotional aspect of managing your stuff and home. The only supplies you need to start decluttering are a black trash bag (black, so people living in your house won't be able to see what's inside and suddenly remember why they totally need it), a donatable Donate Box (the box itself has to leave the house along with the stuff inside), and your feet (in most cases, attached to the ends of your legs).Ask, "If you needed this _____ (hairbrush, spatula, bottle of paint), where would you look for it first?
