You don't have to live overwhelmed by stuff—you can get rid of clutter for good! Decluttering expert Dana White identifies the emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter and provides workable solutions to break through and make progress.

While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, many of us simply can't purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff 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 mindsets and emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter. In her signature humorous approach, she provides workable solutions to break through these struggles and get clutter out—for good!

Not only does Dana provide strategies, but she dives deep into how to implement them, no matter the reader'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.

In Decluttering at the Speed of Life, Dana’s chapters cover:

  • 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

As long as we're living and breathing, new clutter will appear. The good news is that by following Dana’s advice, decluttering will 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.

  • Spending way more time at home during the coronavirus outbreak probably means you're becoming increasingly aware of how much stuff you have and the disorganized state it's in. With your freed-up schedule aligning with the start of spring, it's time to get cleaning. "Decluttering at the Speed of Life" is a particularly gentle guide that provides various suggestions for those struggling to declutter, rather than providing a one-size-fits-all method.

    I've read numerous tidy up/declutter books but this one was completely different. The methods were so approachable. Declutter in 5 minute intervals or whatever time you have at the moment. No more making a huge mess to sort your stuff. You don't have to empty the whole room, the whole cupboard or an entire storage area. Dana White writes with humour and has "been there" so she knows life happens. Her container theory (a shelf, a box or whatever) is an inspiring way to decide on what to throw away/donate/sell/put in the recycle cart. I loved the whole approach (and laughed lots).

    Oh my god this book might just change my life. How did this women see inside my head and know exactly why I have all this stuff still?

    Take it there now. That alone was mind blowing.

    Ive never managed to tidy/declutter/get rid of stuff without making a bigger mess before. But only a week in and I have (some) empty shelves, (some) clean work surfaces and so much stuff GONE!!

    And I've not exhausted myself or got piles of keep boxes with nowhere to actually put the stuff.

    Seriously. If you are not a domestic goddess clean freak you need this book.

    I REALLY enjoyed White's book [How to Manage your Home Without Losing your Mind] last year, and when this popped up on Amazon Prime as a book free to borrow, I downloaded it on my Kindle. I started the first chapter to see if it was that much different from the other, and ended up reading the book straight through. Yes, this book focuses solely on decluttering, a narrower topic, but it is just as practical and powerful as the other book. I've done a lot of decluttering this year, but this inspires me to continue and even (gasp!) tackle the attic.
