Publisher's Summary

Stuff. It's everywhere. Lurking in corners and closets, spilling onto counters and coffee tables, creating havoc everywhere we look. And it's not just the physical clutter that weighs us down. Oh no, it is the stress of overbooked schedules, and the weight of life that sometimes feels oppressive and totally out of whack.

New York Times best-selling author Ruth Soukup feels your pain - she has been there too. Through personal stories, Biblical truth, and practical action plans, she will inspire and empower each of us to finally declutter not just our home, but our mind and soul as well. Unstuffed is real, honest, and gets right down to the question we are all facing - how can we take back our lives from the stuff that is weighing us down?

In this audiobook, together we will:

  • Create a comprehensive vision for our homes and make instant changes to improve its overall function
  • Discover that more closet space is not the solution and instead learn how to set strict limits for the stuff we bring in
  • Overcome the frustration of dealing with our kids' influx of stuff and implement practical solutions for keeping the chaos at bay
  • Recognize the pitfalls of an overstuffed schedule before it gets out of hand and instead learn to combat the culture of busy that keeps us running from one thing to the next
  • Finally conquer that mountain of paperwork that threatens to tumble down around us at any moment
  • Let go of the guilt that gets attached to gifts and instead learn to separate our loved ones from their stuff
  • Begin to cultivate our real friendships while eliminating the toxic relationships that weigh us down

Worked for me!

I listened to this one very quickly. I really like this narrator because she sounds so relatable. The tips were VERY useful and my house has stayed clean and far more organized since I finished the book.
There are a lot of little references to bible passages, but if you listen to the entire book, you'll understand that the author is not preachy, just true to herself. I don't like having others beliefs forced on me, but the book didn't make me feel like that at all. I've never read her blog but the book was written in such a way that you didn't need to be up to date on her blog posts.

Can't tell a book by it's cover!

There was so much reference to Christianity and Jesus particularly st the end of the book. You would never know that this would be a theme in a book about getting uncluttered or unstuck.

I am Jewish and really preferred not hearing about going to church. The uncluttered part was good but you should have left out the religion!

Started great, ended too personal and religious

For the most part this book provides solid guidance on how to declutter your life. I liked that the book walks you through the thought process and justification for clearing out your home, business, or whatever of physical objects. It changed my perception on a few common issues involving clutter and organization and I was able implement meaningful changes. However, after this section the book turned to personal relationships. This is where things quickly deteriorated for me. It got very personal (way too much information) and very religious (preachy but not pushy) for my type of interest in the book. Overall the advice throughout the book was reasonably valid but the author nearly lost all credibility towards the end. I'd recommend giving this book a shot at a local library or scanning it in a book store before making the purchase to make sure it fits your expectations first.

No big takeaways for me

New to the decluttering journey I have been reading many books to help me thru the process. This is mostly her personal stories and it sounds like she still has a long way to go; like still dealing with a storage unit full of inherited stuff.
I even tried to listen to it twice to see if I was distracted and missed something. Nope.
The main thing I recall is to be careful when posting your declutter journey on social media lest you offend family and friends that have given you some of those items.

Fantastic!

Another great book from Ruth! Ruth opens our eyes to the truth behind "our stuff" and not just the ways of getting rid of it.

Great ideas

This book has a lot of wonderful ideas for unstuffing your life. I particularly enjoyed the sections regarding sentimental items and items of those who have passed away. While the narrator was not my favorite, the content was well worth listening to.

so much great information!

helped me see the value in not just holding onto stuff. I was able to think through getting gifts for the grand daughters. Mother's asked for now gifts at party's but we had to do something. so we talked and got them tickets to events. so thankful for the help.
