Publisher's Summary

Have you ever stopped to think what the word "clutter" really means in your life? You live according to a pre-determined schedule, your career is going great (although you haven't seen your family and friends for a while), and yet, you feel you can't breathe - you feel closed in by "too much".

"Clutter" is not just in our visible world - have you ever stopped to think how much is going on in our invisible world? Emotional dependencies are also a form of clutter which can weigh you down and suck the life-force out of you, and with our hectic lifestyles, it is no wonder that our brains feel scrambled all the time as well.

Decluttering Tips for the Sentimentalist uses manageable steps to help you declutter your physical surroundings, mental disarray, and emotional dependencies and sets you on a path to living a clutter-free life.

    "mainly good advice--EXCEPT:"

    I like the idea of emotional declutter. However, I was very unhappy with the chapter on navigating workplace "clutter" by passing tasks to "someone else". I am so disappointed in that too popular way of freeing up "me time" that it tends to be the main point I'm taking away from this book. I do a lot of contract work, and have noticed the awful tendency to pass unpleasant but needed chores off on anyone who will take them. This book recommends doing just that in order to free up time. I say take your turn at ordering supplies, replenishing stock, etc. of course you needn't be the only one doing this, but to pass off the unpleasant but necessary tasks to free up time to get credit for the glory projects is selfish and causes a lot of problems within companies and with morale. Now I read in a fairly new book it's a trendy kind of thing to do? Cut people out of your life because they are needy? Have you tried giving them a book on meditation? the authors suggests he pulling away so they "don't notice". What is wrong with honesty: "I need to better manage my time." We are becoming a society that passes on responsibility and honesty. This book takes some sad steps supporting that in the name of decluttering. I am going to have to remain a little cluttered without an abundance of "(only) me" time.

    "simplistic"

    Far too simplistic, and the sections regarding jobs had nothing to do with the title. Might be helpful for a teenager or young adult.

    "Good reminders but very basic"

    Good reminders but very basic and nothing much, if anything, specific to the sentimentalist. I'd skip it if I knew. If you haven't used it for a year, you can get rid of it. There you go.

    "Waste of time"

    I'm really surprised at how simple this book on simplifying is… It really isn't worth your time.
