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.

Life Changing

I knew how to clean, but I never really learned how to organize things until I listened to this audiobook. Listening to this book is both cathartic and therapeutic.

Life Changing, bold and doable

This is probably one of the few books that I have enjoyed the narrative from the author.

But aside from that the information have changed my perspective about things and declutter my life. Between garage sales, donating and growing away, my life have changed for the better, I feel less stress, my life have become a lot simpler and have given the opportunity to follow one of my passions, which is traveling. Thank you Andrew...

one of the best self help books

It covers what I have been struggling with, and family couldn't teach. And I've benefited a lot from it. By the finish of the book I'm so much more confident about my papers, clothes, ... stuff. Life seems manageable again.

get a notebook and pen for lifetime advice

I suggest the audio and following along bin the soft cover book available on amazon.lessons we thought we knew, thought that was obvious isn't. I really appreciate the helpful ideas and I can refer back to my book and notes. listening is like having a best friend get your life organized.

Pointless story-telling

The two main points of the book are exceptional, but they are crowded in this rant-full book. There was much time spent on points that was not pertinent to the main objective.

Absolutely Totally Great

I am a very organized person but I learned so much from Andrew Mellen's book!! Having a blast "unstuffing" my home!! Great to know that the old hat on the top of the closet is just an old hat - it is not your grandfather!! Yes, the mantras of the book are "Like with Like" and "everything has a home with its brothers and sisters" - Even if you are totally organized and really OCD - you will love, love, love this book.

Loved this book! Andrew has a great voice!

Like with Like and Everything in its place was the best take away. Also the freedom to release gifts given that don't fit my life. Thank you Andrew!
