Overview

Reformed clutterer and best-selling author Mike Nelson (Stop Clutter from Stealing Your Life, and Clutter-proof Your Business) discusses why people clutter-regardless of their age-and how they can clean up and break out of their habit of cluttering. Nelson explains that cluttering is more about emotional triggers than organizing skills. "Organizing" is often too vague a goal for adults, as well. Traditional organizing techniques do not work for everyone because people relate to their "stuff" differently. He presents a wide array of techniques that will help all adults with cluttering habits permanently change their behavior and improve their life.

This book is about a lot more than organizing-it's about creating a less cluttered life for you and a better life for your children. Your entire household will be more peaceful and stress free when the whole family "de-clutters" together!
