Unclutter Your Life

Unclutter Your LifeSimply Live
Unclutter Your Life: Transforming Your Physical, Mental, and Emotional Space by Katherine Gibson does more than tackle the clutter we see—a messy desk, junk under the bed, stuff in closets or jammed in the attic. In short, coffee-break length chapters, Unclutter Your Life exposes the unseen obstacles that pack the mental and emotional in-basket of life.

“I was asked to write Unclutter Your Life when a piece I wrote about living TV-free aired on CBC radio,” says Katherine. “Writing this book has impacted how I live my life and I am delighted to share what I have learned with others.”

Unclutter Your Life will show how our creative potential is unleashed when we attack visible and invisible clutter with action, clarity, and a good spring cleaning.
Learn how to:
Clear out closet-freeloaders
Trash paper and office clutter
Become a one-bag traveler
Liberate yourself from television
Tune out noise terrorists
Unclutter the holidays

I have to tell you how grateful I was to read about your fortune / misfortune in Europe. It inspired me to pack as little as possible. I had just a small backpack for two weeks and I was the envy of my traveling companions. Thank you!"

I could not put down this book. I read it from cover to cover and then went immediately to my closet and took out things I no longer wear. The Chapter on "Guilt: Unloading Our Burden Basket," is amazing. No more guilt for me about the "shoulds". An absolute must read for all the clutterbugs out there. This book will change your life.
