Publisher's 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.

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.
