Publisher's Summary

Finally, a housekeeping and organizational system developed for those of us who'd describe our current living situation as a "f--king mess" that we "really need to get around to fixing one day". Unf--k Your Habitat is for anyone who has been left behind by traditional aspirational systems - the ones that ignore single people with full-time jobs, people without kids but living with roommates, and people with mental illnesses or physical limitations. Most organizational books are aimed at stay-at-home moms and people who seem to have unimaginable amounts of free time. They assume we all iron our sheets, have linen napkins to match our table runners, and can keep plants alive for longer than a week. Basically, they ignore most of us living here in the real world.

Interspersed with lists and challenges, this practical, no-nonsense guide helps you develop lifelong habits. It motivates you to embrace a new lifestyle in manageable sections so you can start applying the tactics as you progress. This philosophy is more realistic than aspirational, but the goal is the same: not everyone will have a showcase of a home, but whatever your habitat, you deserve for it to bring you happiness, not stress.

    "Good advice, lost in the clutter"

    This book is 80% "don't be so hard on yourself, life is SO HAAAARD" and 20% good advice. Honestly, I wish I'd only listened to the summary chapter at the end.

    "stuck on gender"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Honestly after 45min I had to stop listening because she never moved forward into anything other than that a man is capable of doing house work believe it or not.... As a man who does house work after a day of work work I do not need to be convinced. Maybe ill try to finish the book at some point, but for now I would spend your money on the many other good books out there first.

    I am a slow reader in comparison to others who read frequently, I take my time and absorb the story. I focus in on details and I remember those that stand out. I love adventure stories and non fiction.

    "Wasn't for me. i prefer Peter Walsh, et al."
    What disappointed you about Unf--k Your Habitat?

    It was boring to me. I'm interested in organizing so that cleaning is easier but I was uninspired by this book. The narrator is great though.


    Has Unf--k Your Habitat turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I like Peter Walsh and Marie Kondo.


    What about Emily Woo Zeller’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Retread of other books with some F bombs thrown in.

    "Better than most decluttering books."

    Have depression? How about anxiety? Got a situation that most decluttering books don't address? This book is written for those of us who live in the real world. If you aren't sensitive to the occasional f-bomb, then this is the book for you.

    "Sexist"

    Took too long to get started, harped on and on about gender roles, and abilities, before starting to actually teach anything, let alone motivate.
