Good basic instructions for clearing clutter from your life but don't expect an in-depth look into Feng Shui. The author gets off track when she comments on colon cleansing and a product line available, as it reads like a pseudo-science infomercial. ( )

Very interesting and definitely inspiring, but I warn you (as my daughter warned me) to SKIP the chapters on "inner clutter." I will not explain what the author means by that, even under torture. Princess Diana might have gone for it, though. Suffice it to say that as much as I liked most of the book, those chapters needed a more discriminating editor! There is also a bit too much of the "woo woo" (to quote the famous daughter again) new age stuff, which you can take with a grain of salt if (like me) you are not so much into that.In the final analysis, it is still a worthwhile read for people with clutter issues. Isn't that most people? Why else are there millions of those u-stor-it places all over the US? Quick, read this book before you rent one of those units. ( )

Free yourself from physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual clutter forever.

The beginning was motivational for me to get rid of clutter. You do not have to believe in Feng Shui but it works as a framework to show the consequences of clutter and possible reasons behind it.
The de-cluttering your time was a little weak. It included "eat that frog" and procrastination is basically a matter of will.
The chapter on colon cleanse was stretching it too far. ( )

It was interesting to learn what Feng Shui actually is. And Kingston writes quite insightfully about the way that clutter--household and mental--steals your energy. This is an idea I've thought about a lot before and find to be true for myself, though I don't mean the kind of Astral energy that Feng Shui refers to. And I just disagree with the Shui Bagua concept--that clutter in specific quadrants of your home and rooms leads to bad energy in specific areas of your life (e.g. your vocation).

So I would give the book a 3 for how much I liked and agreed with it; but as I think it's not fair to judge a book this way if you aren't at least open to believing the author, I'll round up to 4 stars. ( )

I once met a woman who set off travelling around the planet with little more than the ticket to her first destination in her pocket.
Quotations
Do you own your stuff or does it own you?

The word "clutter" derives from the Middle English word "clotter," which means to coagulate - and that's about as stuck as you can get.
Being clear of clutter is one of the greatest aids I know to discovering and manifesting the life you want.
