    some good advice with a lot of filler

    I'm glad I bought it and it is helpful, but I was rather disappointed in how much of the text is not really useful. I think this book has some really good points and some really good advice, but it is scatteered amid vague advice and too much time spent on the psychology of cluttering.
    My house is making slow progress in the right direction, at least partly helped by this book. Overall it is easy reading and some parts that didn't seem to apply to me may apply to others.

    Not your typical de-clutter book...

    I have read a lot of de-clutter and organize-your-home-and-life books. Stop Clutter is different. The focus of this book is on why we hoard and clutter our lives. Nike Nelson is the founder and executive director of Clutterless Recovery Groups. He delves into the why we clutter and why we hoard. The difference between a hoarder and a person that clutters is distinct. A hoarder ¿can¿t tell trash from things of value.¿ A person that clutters has a ¿this might come in handy later¿ attitude. Stop Clutter is a must read book if you are or know a person that clutters or hoards. It helped me to understand the behavior of others. The information within the pages of Stop Clutter is insightful. If you need a book to help you organize your home, look elsewhere. Nelson does not tell you how to organize your home, but does help you to understand why you behave the way you do.

    At last, someone who understands what cluttering is really about!

    Mr. Nelson 'gets it.' This book is the first book written by a clutterer for clutterers. He explains right off the bat that cluttering is not about organizing your sock drawer. It is about your relationship to your socks. It is not a rehash of organizing tips and hints. Of course there are very practical suggestions in chapters 4 and 14, but please don't buy it if all you want is how to organize. If you are a clutterer, traditional tips don't work for you anyway. There are plenty of books like that. This book is for people who want to get better and reclaim their lives. I own every organizing book on the market and not one spoke to me the way this one does. Cluttering is not just a problem with having a messy kitchen or closet. For those of us who are clutterers and hoarders, it is a psychological and spiritual blockage that limits our lives and even destroys relationships. Yet, while he treats the subject seriously, his humor shines through like the sunlight of the spirit. The stories of clutters are honest and touching, but you have to laugh at the one who has 27 refrigerators in his yard! The medical and psychological information, full of quotes from experts in the field, (family counseling and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders) is well-written and understandable to a layman. Where the book really shines is in the practical, yet spiritual approach to deluttering our lives and then our living spaces. Mr. Nelson's practical advice for dealing with debt and bill collectors (which often accompanies cluttering) is priceless. His family relationship chapter will help so many non-clutterers understand how to save their marriages. Our nonprofit organization, Clutterless Recovery Groups, has recommended this book to all of our members and adopted it as our 'Big Book.' Kudos, Mr. Nelson, and thank you. You will touch the lives of millions with this book.

    I can find the other sock

    Mr. Nelson's book was extremely helpful to me. I am an elementary classroom teacher. I was always losing things. After reading Mr. Nelson's book, I am inspired to put and keep myself more organised. Thank you, Mr. Nelson.
