Almost everyone struggles with clutter. Overflowing desks at work . . . overstuffed closets and piles of mail at home . . . overwhelmed minds all the time . . . no wonder so many people say they are "drowning in clutter."

In Let Go of Clutter, organizing expert Harriet Schechter presents a fresh approach to overcoming the natural urge to accumulate objectts and information. Dispensing equal doses of help, hope, and humor, she provides effective and realistic options for anyone who juggles too much stuff, too many decisions, and too little time.

Featuring the innovative insights and time-tested techniques that have already helped thousands of Schechter's clients and seminar attendees worldwide,
Let Go of Clutter:

- Shows how to shed sentimental stuff without fear of regret.
- Provides easy-to-use forms and checklists that help readers decide what to jettison and what to keep.
- Includes action plans with systems for conquering all types of clutter - past, present, and future.

My Thoughts

I moonlight as a home organizer, and one of my clients gave this to me while we were purging her books. Due to physical limitations, she found working with an actual person to be more helpful than reading strategies from a book. No shame there, of course! Even I find that organizing my own home is easier to do with company.

That said, Let Go of Clutter has some really good strategies for managing all your stuff!

No organizing book will ever be a five-star read for me, as every situation is different and, at the end of the day, will require a personalized solution. Given that perfection is impossible, Let Go of Clutter is a next-best option for those looking for organizing inspiration and easily workable strategies.
