    Too Much Stuff is truly stuffed!

    Too Much Stuff is stuffed from cover to cover with techniques on how to de-clutter both your heart and your home. This advice is given in a clear, easy-to-read manner which has us eager to decontaminate our homes of unwanted, unneeded, and unused items. Not only does Mrs. Porter help us make our homes cleaner and our space more effective, but she also gently encourages us to de-clutter our hearts - which is where the clutter really begins. Kathryn begins the saga of de-cluttering by sharing her own heartfelt story of growing up in a cluttered home and how she brought those habits with her after she¿d married and moved out on her own. Each chapter brings us deeper into our clutter and gives prudent advice on how to start shoveling our way to a neater home. Topics range from defining clutter, planning how to de-clutter in an orderly way, working in the main rooms such as kitchens to less seen rooms like bathrooms and bedrooms. She also tackles the dirty job of paper work and bills - those seldom touched piles on our desks. But Mrs. Porter doesn¿t stop there. How does clutter begin? Why do we `need¿ to keep things? Are we so cluttered in home and mind that we push our time with God aside? Do we go to God with real needs for `food and raiment¿ or for those sale items we can¿t seem to pass up? When I finished reading Too Much Stuff I was taking a second look at my home and my heart.

    REAL Help for REAL moms dealing with Life's Clutter

    Life is full of chaos and clutter, especially life with kids. But if we allow that clutter to invade our homes and our hearts we can lose ourselves in the process. Kathryn Porter tackles a difficult issue many face today either in their own homes or in the homes of family or friends they love in her latest book Too Much Stuff - De-Cluttering Your Heart and Home. She opens the book by sharing her own heartache with clutter, and the loss of her mom who lived secretly in a cluttered home with waist high stuff everywhere. When her mom became ill from diabetes, '...the paramedics had to push aside boxes and bags of junk to clear a path so they could get the stretcher through the house. There was too much stuff. Boxes, bags, trash and debris were everywhere, three to four feet high in many places.' Porter grew up in that sort of chaos, and it impacted her life. Though she thought she was nothing like her mom, she began to discover that she was saving things needlessly, losing things, and letting life's clutter drag her down. Too Much Stuff not only describes what clutter is, but also the ultimate cost of clutter. That as we focus on our love for 'things' and accumulating and keeping all this stuff, we quickly lose sight of what truly matters most: time with loved ones and a sense of peace only God can give. Too Much Stuff is a MUST read for every busy mom who has a paper pile on her kitchen desk, a junk drawer full of, well....junk clean laundry piling up in the family room and too much stuff to fit in her attic. It¿s the kind of book you will read over again - And it's the kind of book you will pass on to a friend who is just like you. A mom looking for help in the midst of life's chaos with kids.

    GREAT book!! A MUST read for ALL clutterbugs!

    I picked this book up thinking 'ok' another 'organize your stuff' book. But it was totally different. As much as I LOVE Emilie Barnes, you really need to read this BEFORE you read Emilie Barnes. Kathryn helps you to get rid of the excess and then Emilie helps you to organize whats leftover. I finished this book in two evenings and I was SO ecouraged by it that in less than two weeks I have almost decluttered my entire house. I've just got the attic left!!
