I wouldn’t really consider myself a neat freak but I absolutely hate clutter. Anyone in my family would tell you they have to be careful about what they leave sitting around because if it sits to long it ends up being thrown out because I can not stand clutter sitting around. I do tend to let things I can’t see get cluttered though. If it’s out of sight then it’s out of mind. So we have some very clutter closets and kid’s bedrooms. One of my friends from Australia has the same attitude as me but she even uses a Storage Sydney facility to keep all her seasonal furniture out the house. This is definitely something I’d consider using to keep my house clutter free. Nonetheless, I recently read a great book called “Year of No Clutter” by Eve O. Schaub that is full of great information and tips on how to declutter your home.
Year of No Clutter Synopsis:
Eve has a problem with clutter. Too much stuff and too easily acquired, it confronts her in every corner and on every surface in her house. When she pledges to tackle the worst offender, her horror of a “Hell Room,” she anticipates finally being able to throw away all of the unnecessary things she can’t bring herself to part with: her fifth-grade report card, dried-up art supplies, an old vinyl raincoat.
But what Eve discovers isn’t just old CDs and outdated clothing, but a fierce desire within herself to hold on to her identity. Our things represent our memories, our history, a million tiny reference points in our lives. If we throw our stuff in the trash, where does that leave us? And if we don’t…how do we know what’s really important?
Everyone has their own Hell Room, and Eve’s battle with her clutter, along with her eventual self-clarity, encourages everyone to dig into their past to declutter their future. Year of No Clutter is a deeply inspiring?and frequently hilarious ? examination of why we keep stuff in the first place, and how to let it all go.
