Ruth Soukup, a New York Times best-selling author and founder of the wildly popular blog LivingWellSpendingLess.com, knows all too well just how overwhelming it can feel to have a home - and life - filled with too many things. Through personal stories and practical action plans, she inspires and empowers other women to finally declutter not only their homes but their minds and souls as well. Unstuffed is real and honest and speaks to the heart of the question so many of today's women are asking: How can we take back our lives from all the STUFF that is weighing us down?
From recognizing the pitfalls of overfilled closets to combating the culture of busy that keeps women running from one thing to the next to finding life balance by learning how to let go of unhealthy habits and stress, listeners will journey with Ruth as they overcome chaotic, out-of-control schedules, overstuffed homes, and undernourished souls.

For the most part this book provides solid guidance on how to declutter your life. I liked that the book walks you through the thought process and justification for clearing out your home, business, or whatever of physical objects. It changed my perception on a few common issues involving clutter and organization and I was able implement meaningful changes. However, after this section the book turned to personal relationships. This is where things quickly deteriorated for me. It got very personal (way too much information) and very religious (preachy but not pushy) for my type of interest in the book. Overall the advice throughout the book was reasonably valid but the author nearly lost all credibility towards the end. I'd recommend giving this book a shot at a local library or scanning it in a book store before making the purchase to make sure it fits your expectations first.
There was so much reference to Christianity and Jesus particularly st the end of the book. You would never know that this would be a theme in a book about getting uncluttered or unstuck.
I am Jewish and really preferred not hearing about going to church. The uncluttered part was good but you should have left out the religion!
This is not a step-by-step guide for decluttering BUT I found it was something that I needed to finally start having success in the difficult process of decluttering. I accepted that I wouldn't ever have a clean & organized home because I simply had TO MUCH STUFF. Not all clutter is junk or trash, and that was my biggest problem, and this book opened my eyes to the truth I needed.
