Clutter is a temper tantrum of the soul, and it's time to listen closely to what it's saying.

Clutter, with its overwhelming physical and emotional presence, can seem like it’s one of our toughest inner critics. We see it and think it is telling us that we aren’t neat enough or don’t have enough control over our own lives. But what if we instead saw clutter as a messenger? And as opposed to confronting it with fear and loathing, we approached it with compassion and curiosity?

With practical and warm advice, lifestyle designer and coach Kerri Richardson guides you to accept your clutter as a natural manifestation of your mind, body, and spirit looking out for yourself. It is your soul calling out for you to invest in self-care and to face the fears holding you back from being your best self. Richardson dives into the most common categories of physical clutter and provides effi cient and effective steps for clearing the space for your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being to fl ourish. But more than house and home, Richardson encourages you to clear out the clutter of relationships and habits that have been occupying your time and energy for too long.

From tackling your common clutter hot spots to preventing the accumulation of unneeded belongings in the future, the readily usable tools in these pages give you an achievable plan to maximize your house, home, and heart’s potential.
