7 Clutter Blocks

This is a good book for people who can relate to any of these 7 clutter blocks (unconscious reasons for holding onto stuff):
1. My stuff keeps me in the past (stuff that reinforce the idea the best time of my life is behind me)
2. My stuff tells me who I am (flaunting things and brands)
3. It's stuff I'm avoiding (like unopened mail)
4. My fantasy stuff is for my fantasy life (like clothes in a smaller size, kitchen appliances to cook healthy meals, and fancy exercise equipment)
5. I'm not worth my good stuff (like unused china and items saved for "special" occasions)
6. Trapped by other people's stuff (like my parents' stuff given to me but I have no use for)
7. Stuff I keep paying for (it's unused stuff but I spent too much on it to let go of it)

Full of non-judgmental entertainment

Tracy tells us why we collect in a non-judgmental and entertaining way. She is so upbeat even when facing the most personal hoarding cases. But, even those of us with an organized junk drawer can identify additional tools to rid ourselves of the guilt of clearing the clutter. I am excited for my next decluttering adventure!

7 clutter blocks & senior downsizing

I think this book would be especially helpful for senior downsizing. And I really liked the 7 Clutter Blocks. So often I see adds for organizers where the before pictures have a bunch of trash and the after picture looks great. But what if there’s no trash or undone laundry in your house? Maybe you have “precious antiques” or heirlooms and you’re overwhelmed by grief or guilt both. Tracy does a really good job explaining what the block may be.

Like your BFF talking you through your clutter!

This book is so helpful, not judgy and like your best girlfriend is helping you deal with the all the crap you accumulate.
My mom died not so long ago and I encountered so many of the issues Tracy breaks down, I feel so much better knowing all of it was normal, hard and complicated. So little to do with 'sparking joy.' I will use so many of her techniques moving forward, it's absolutely invaluable. And knowing I"m not alone makes it so much easier to face the difficult 'stuff.'

There's a lot of truth to chew on in this book.

I've listened to numerous books on decluttering. This was a great addition. Some reviews were negative, but I thought she was fantastic! As with all decluttering books, keep an open mind. Implement what works for you and ignore the rest. If you're getting upset, it may be she's stepping on your toes and you should embrace whatever truth she's trying to show you. I have been seriously decluttering and ready to hear more tips. It really was like having a friend motivating me to declutter and have the peaceful home I've always wanted. The more I declutter the easier it gets. The easier it gets the more clutter I want to part with. It's a beautiful cycle. It feels like I was in bondage to clutter and now I'm free. Woot Woot!

Outstanding

The best book I’ve read so far on this subject, because of its broad coverage of a wide variety of situations and reasons you may be reading this book in the first place. Second place favorite in this genre would be the book “Lightly.” I like the the fact that it was read by the author, she’s very genuine & sounds truly dedicated to her audience. Great read, hard to put down. Will have a permanent place in my library.

Tells it like it is

Down to earth book about declittering and the emotions behind what we chose to save over decades and buy to fill a void. Tracy doesn't just tell you how to declutter but also gives you insight into why you should without the guilt in case you decide " not now".
