A friend recently stayed at my house while visiting the area and jokingly remarked on how my house was so cluttered she'd lost nearly lost her baby in the mess. To say I was embarrassed is an understatement, so shortly after she left I went searching for a little help in decluttering my home (and my life) and found "The Declutter Bible". This book is quite a bit different from the other decluttering how-tos floating about because it not only helps you with tips to actually begin the task of decluttering home, but skillfully approaches the mentality and psychological reasons why we allow out lives as a whole to be cluttered. With a smart, insightful writing style Ms. Cooper helps readers to identify the areas of life that are cluttered (from the home to out routines and everything in between) and then provides solid tips, techniques and advice to help change things so that our homes and lives stay clean and clutter-free permanently.
This is a well-written and carefully organized book that certainly gave me a great deal of advice and tips on starting a clutter-free life from this point forward. After reading it I immediately put the tips and advice of the author into action and I can already see a difference in my home and life that allows the embarrassment of my friend's comment about my cluttered home feel a little less embarrassing. Overall, this was well worth the read and I would definitely recommend it to those who want to not only declutter their homes, but take charge of their cluttered lives as well.
