Publisher's Summary

One of the country's most sought-after professional organizers here makes his foolproof rescue plan available for everyone.

Arguably the most organized man in America, Andrew J. Mellen has created unique, lasting techniques for streamlined living, bringing order out of chaos for a client list that includes attorneys, filmmakers, and even psychologists. With Unstuff Your Life! he puts his powerful program in the hands of his widest audience yet. Acknowledging that it's often the "stuff behind the stuff" that holds people back, Mellen offers an action-based plan to redirect clutterers from dwelling on their feelings. This simple shift yields immediate results that will help everyone achieve organizational bliss. Mellen's mix of humor, honesty, tough love, and foolproof strategies will motivates listeners to work through their feelings and make real behavior changes that will have long-lasting effects.

Written in Mellen's signature no-nonsense yet hilarious tone, Unstuff Your Life! brims with personality, along with approaches not found in other organizing books. Built on the principle that we must distinguish ourselves from our possessions, Unstuff Your Life! starts with truly achievable goals and works toward the nightmare projects everyone tries hard to avoid. From the basement to the bedroom, the kitchen to the car, and more, listeners will learn:

  • Where to find a permanent home for your keys and wallet
  • How to sort the mail in a manageable and time-effective way
  • What it means to group "like with like"
  • How to tackle bills and budget
  • How to problem-solve with your new skills, and more

The result is absolute freedom from the burden of clutter - and more free time than you ever imagined possible.

    "Very Detailed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I like the information and the way he presents it. He goes through different categories step by step, good for people like me who don't know where to start.


    What does Andrew J. Mellen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hes a great narrator and seems like he really loves what he does.

    "Narrator is so annoying!"

    He comes off as condescending, speaks throughout the entire book as of he's talking to a child, I'm not offended by any means because this guy is obviously a moron. But if you could ignore that, there are some decent common sense tips, things we all know or have heard before; this is more like a refresher. Had it not been for the idiotic narrator I would say this is a 3.5 star. The one good thing about this audio book is that it separated spaces (kitchen, office, car, etc.) by chapter so you can pick and choose depending on what areas are more interesting to you.

    "Loved it!"

    There are only so many new things that can be said about clearing clutter. And those of us that like these types of books are usually on our second or third one. This guy has a great organized delivery method that can be relied upon in the future like a reference book.
    Very helpful and pleasant.

    "It met my expectations"

    I bought this book, well actually I downloaded the app, because I felt lonely and overwhelmed when dealing whit clutter. But I paused the cleaning to listen to de whole book before restarting; it was worth it.

    I liked that Andrew Mellen narrated the book, it made me feel like I hired him as a personal organizer.
    Its a well rounded book, not minimalistic Throw it all away to the garbage, its the middle path. It has so much to do about you and so little about the actual stuff.
    The only thing that I didn't understand is why Andrew was explaining what LOL means? And how to use chats; About that just lol. I would rather hear what to do with paid subscriptions, but are minor things.
    And Andrew Mellen I'll really miss you the most :) namaste.

    "Might be better as just a book."
    Would you listen to Unstuff Your Life again? Why?

    No, but I might read it. The pace of the reader was too fast and when I slowed it down to normal it echoed.

    "Doable advice"

    Great book, chapters are set up so you can easily come back and use them individually. Inspiring, doable, and an enjoyable narrator.

    Story
    "Return to Sanity- Take THAT "Stuff"!"
    If you could sum up Unstuff Your Life in three words, what would they be?

    changed my life


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unstuff Your Life?

    to realize how "stuff" was running me and not the other way around


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The chapters on office filing and digital file management, but the "closet scene" was an eye opener too, Just kidding! There are no "scenes" in the book- more like "zones" to tackle


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Well, yes... I did both. I am trying to handle an insanely busy schedule that includes home management, livestock management and a full time office. I was feeling overwhelmed, which is why this title appealed to me.


    Any additional comments?

    Andrew Mellen is not only "giving" good advice, he delivers on peace of mind as well. He is hands down one of the best narrators I have enjoyed.
