B & N Overview
When you think of what it will take to clean your house, are you so overwhelmed you throw up your hands and cry, "It's all too much"? Do you dream of having a closet where your clothes aren't crammed in so tightly that you can actually get to them? Is your basement filled with boxes of precious family mementos you haven't opened in ten years but are too afraid to toss? Are your kitchen counters overrun with appliances you've never used? Do your kids play in the living room because there's no room left in their playroom? If somewhere along the way you've simply lost the ability to keep your home organized and clutter-free, then It's All Too Much has the solution you've been searching for.
Peter Walsh, the organizational guru from TLC's hit show Clean Sweep, understands how easy it is for clutter to creep into your life and how hard it is to get rid of it. In It's All Too Much, he shares his proven system for letting go of your emotional and physical clutter so that you can create a happier, more stress-free home and life. At last, here is a system for managing your clutter, regaining control, and living the life you imagine for yourself.

Peter has helped clients from every walk of life. With his trademark humor and insight, Peter guides you step-by-step through the very charged process of decluttering your home, organizing your possessions, and reclaiming your life. Going way beyond color-coded boxes and storage bin solutions, It's All Too Much shows you how to reexamine your priorities and let go of the things that are weighing you down. Clearly and simply, Peter gives you the courage you need to go through your home, room by room -- even possession by possession -- and honestly assess what adds to your quality of life and what's keeping you from living the life of your dreams.

Filled with real-life examples and advice for homes of all sizes and personalities, It's All Too Much will set you free from the emotional baggage that goes along with clutter and help you lead a fuller, richer life with less stuff.

Just received this in the mail and this could not have come at a better time -- I could definitely stand to do a Peter Walsh number on my place.

Hopefully I can get this read in the near future, since if all goes well I will see LittleWhiteBird on Saturday, and she is next in line. I guess if not, I can get the right mailing info and maybe get it sent to her before she moves.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Off in the mail to Little White Bird, the next person on the list. Maybe these strategies will be helpful in preparing for the move -- or unpacking afterwards.

For me, I took a lot of notes and realized I have to start with a big day of purging and etc -- maybe two -- and in the meantime I will work on the Trashbag Tango and other strategies.

Journal Entry 11 by LittleWhiteBird at Arlington, Virginia USA on Monday, April 09, 2012

Released 5 yrs ago (4/10/2012 UTC) at Arlington, Virginia USA

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This book has tons of good advice about organizing your home. It's really not about the stuff, but about changing your attitude towards your possessions, so that they don't possess you. Then with a decluttered home, you can start decluttering other aspects of your life as well.

There's lots of detailed advice about every room of the home, though. I made lots of notes about all his suggestions so I'll be able to apply them after I send the book to the next person. Obviously, you don't have to agree with every single thing.

Here's one example of a suggestion that I thought I disagreed with. He says to get rid of your Fondue pot. I thought "No, we eat cheese fondue all the time". But then I gave it another thought and it turns out, we use a pot that has other uses as well anyway, and the fondue pot has been sitting in our cupboard forever unused. So he was right after all. We WILL get rid of our fondue pot right after we get back to California, and will be even happier fondue eaters :)

I'm sending this book to NMReader's friend Mark now.

I hope you enjoy the book. Happy reading!
