Summary

You don't have to live overwhelmed by stuff - you can get rid of clutter for good! 
While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, real women with real families who are constantly growing and changing simply can't purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff is a home that is difficult to maintain, so where do we begin? Add in paralyzing emotional attachments and constant life challenges, and it can feel almost impossible to make real decluttering progress. 
In Decluttering at the Speed of Life, decluttering expert and author Dana White identifies the mind-sets and emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter. Then, in her signature humorous approach, she provides workable solutions to break through these struggles and get clutter out - for good! 
But more than simply offering strategies, Dana dives deep into how to implement them, no matter the listener's clutter level or emotional resistance to decluttering. She helps identify procrasticlutter - the stuff that will get done eventually so it doesn't seem urgent - as well as how to make progress when there's no time to declutter. 
Sections of the book include:

Your Unique Home

Real help for the messies of this world

I think exactly the way this author describes her brain. We ‘messy’ people may be brilliant in numerous ways but we struggle with our homes because of the way that we think. This book gives a simple 5 step strategy to improving your home in a mode that will work for those of us who think differently from most. She goes over the same strategy a number of times to ensure by the time you are done listening - you’ll have the strategy ingrained. So far, my house is DISTINCTLY better since deploying the strategies. Even 3 or 4 minutes has an impact and that’s because the system doesn’t rely on the fact you’ll have longer to devote to it. Well worth your credit.

Awesome & Helpful

First off, I’ve never listened to an author read a book that was any good, but Dana was exceptional!!! If she ever decides to quit her blogging/writing, she could earn a living reading audio books. I would look for her ,that’s how good she was.

Secondly, I went into this book thinking it wasn’t really possible to change the way I think about my stuff, and finally get some things out of our home. I was wrong! I’m in the beginning stages, but I’m walking around my home for the first time ever and looking at it as a container. Dana has given me the permission I need to throw away and donate stuff instead of just figure out how to reorganize the stuff we have spilling out everywhere.

The book was extra interesting because of her own personal examples. I guess it seemed doable compared to those super neat freak women that want to tell you how to to fix your home. Thanks Dana! You’re my new hero.🌷

The best decluttering book out there

I love Dana’s approach and wit. And this system works! I highly recommend this book for people who aren’t automatically tidy or who wake up one day surrounded by clutter. Honest, funny and good to the bone!
