Примечание редактора

Irreverent approach that works…

This is decluttering made easy. You don’t have to assess every item to determine if it brings you joy. Just, like, maybe throw out things that are definitely trash? And put items back after you use them? Dana K. White uses plenty of humor to help you through the process of cleaning house.

Описание

You don’t have to live overwhelmed by stuff—you can get rid of clutter for good!

While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, real women with real families who are constantly growing and changing simply can’t purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff is a home that is difficult to maintain, so where do we begin? Add in paralyzing emotional attachments and constant life challenges, and it can feel almost impossible to make real decluttering progress.

In Decluttering at the Speed of Life, decluttering expert and author Dana White identifies the mind-sets and emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter. Then, in her signature humorous approach, she provides workable solutions to break through these struggles and get clutter out—for good!

But more than simply offering strategies, Dana dives deep into how to implement them, no matter the listener’s clutter level or emotional resistance to decluttering. She helps identify procrasticlutter—the stuff that will get done eventually so it doesn’t seem urgent—as well as how to make progress when there’s no time to declutter.

Sections of the book include

  • Why You Need This Book (You Know Why)
  • Your Unique Home
  • Decluttering in the Midst of Real Life
  • Change Your Mind, Change Your Home
  • Breaking Through Your Decluttering Delusions
  • Working It Out Room by Room
  • Helping Others Declutter
  • Real Life Goes On (and On)

As long as we’re living and breathing, new clutter will appear. The good news is that decluttering can get easier, become more natural, and require significantly fewer hours, less emotional bandwidth, and little to no sweat to keep going.

Об авторе

Dana K. White is a blogger, podcaster, speaker, and (much to her own surprise) a decluttering expert. She taught both English and theatre arts before leaving her job to make her family her life’s work. In an attempt to get her home under control, Dana started blogging as “Nony” (short for anonymous) at A Slob Comes Clean. Dana soon realized she was not alone in her housekeeping struggles and in her feelings of shame. Today, Dana shares realistic home management strategies with her signature humor and a message of hope for the hopelessly messy through her blog, weekly podcasts, and videos. Dana lives with her husband and three kids just outside of Dallas, Texas.

  • (3/5)
    Nice inspiring book. A bit repetitive, but that is warned by the author. Nice boost to get started with declutter.
  • (5/5)
    An excellent book. Starts off with the practical side of decluttering for one self, and considers important aspects on how to help others. It also approaches (in its last chapters) the iceberg of underlying psychological issues that underlie cluttered lifestyles. It gives great advice on how to go about overcome these. I made great progress myself while listening to this audio book!

    Wow! She said EVERY POINT I needed to hear. Amazing book.
    This book was written with REAL life in mind. No fluff, no pie in the sky aspirations, just honesty and workable solutions. It's like she walked through my own house and came up with a great plan for me to implement to fix it. (That's the key, y'all - you can't just read the book - you have to participate.) AND she did it all with a liberal dose of KINDNESS. Thank you, Dana K White!

    Great book. I enjoyed listening to it as I cleaned my home and de cluttered my kids’ room. The best lesson I got was it was exactly how to do the decluttering without making more of a mess and how to gain momentum to keep going by doing the things that make a visible difference first. Definitely worth a listen if you struggle with maintain a tidy home.

    This made it so easy to start. The KonMari method was too much for me. This really breaks it down and makes the mess less overwhelming.

    This is a great book with good information about practical application, and getting over procrastination and springing into action even if only with small steps, b/c even small steps forward are forward progress.

    Great advice and easy to follow. Much more realistic than The Art of Tidying Up.
