Publisher's Summary

The anti-clutter movement is having a moment. You may have heard about a book - an entire book - written on the topic of tidiness and how magical and life-changing it is to neaten up and throw away your belongings. Yes, you read that correctly.

It's time to fight that ridiculousness and to start buying even more stuff and leaving it any place you want. Guess what, neatniks? Science shows that messy people are more creative.* Being a slob is an art, and there's a fine line between being a consumer and being a hoarder. Don't cross that line.

This book tells you how to clutter mindfully and with great joy. The results are mind-blowing. Your plants will stop dying. Your whiskey bottle will never run dry. Your drugstore points will finally add up to a free jar of salsa and some nice shampoo. You'll go shopping and discover that you've lost weight.... It's time to take back your life from the anti-clutter movement. 

*As well as smarter and more attractive.

Funny with real wisdom nested in there

Yes, there is cussing. But they made a distinction between messiness and hoarding. And put our messiness in perspective. Truth is, if you have kids five and under, it's a lost battle you shouldn't be feeling guilty about anyways (as they also point out). The point is life is messy for everyone! So what did you think your home was going to look like? We are already too self-critical as a society and that is unhealthy. This book helped me lighten a little bit of that load and helped me give myself some self-compassion, which we all need. I loved this book so much that I plan on listening to it again.
