Thanks to your book, the more I de-clutter, the more peaceful my house is. And as my house becomes more peaceful, I'm becoming more peaceful within myself.

As a Professional Organizer, I read a lot of books on organizing as part of my continuing education. There are many organizing books out there on the market these days, and I have to tell you some of them are down right boring! But, not The Clutter-Busting Handbook. Your book is fun to read, because you cover all the basics of organizing in a very light-hearted and up-beat manner. GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!! Thank you.

Everyone has a corner in his or her home or office that has become a catchall for a wealth of "stuff." In this entertaining read, Emmett (The Procrastinator's Handbook) aides clutter collectors in identifying "When Enough Becomes Too Much" and doles out advice on how to achieve and maintain an inviting and airy living space. A "Recovered Pack Rat," Emmett argues that living or working in a cluttered environment can take a toll on one's physical and emotional well being: "When you are surrounded by confusion, you feel confused; when you are surrounded by junk, you feel junky." This slim but thorough book helps readers tackle problem areas like closets and garages, and also includes tips on emptying e-mail accounts and clearing out ordinary paper clutter. Emmett lists 50 ways to get rid of and limit unwanted items, naming various charities and online auctions and making suggestions such as share magazine subscriptions with friends. Throughout, she includes helpful "clutter quizzes" that identify bad habits and gives readers practical tips on how to remain focused. With its sound advice and upbeat, encouraging tone, this book will motivate readers to get a jump on their spring cleaning.

I've almost competed the Clutter-Busting Handbook and love it (I knew I would!). Your writing style is so kind and funny.

As a result of reading The Clutter-Busting Handbook, my wife and I de-cluttered our lives on the first & second levels of our home.
We have three huge boxes for a garage sale and the church got the winter clothes donation. Our 32-gallon recycle bin overflowed two weeks in a row!
AND we no longer use the kitchen counter for random paper storage or as a horizontal filing system. Now we use it for food preparation. (What a concept!)
It's great! We've already adopted the habit that when mail or deliveries arrive, they donít go to the kitchen or dining room as they did in the past. We won't so quickly lose bills or important papers to tumbling stacks of countertop clutter.

I have implemented your (clutter busting) suggestion and what a great feeling it is! As a result, I am more creative, productive and focused. It confirms that a little focused effort in the right place can produce significant results.

I took your advice from The Clutter-Busting Handbook. I have gotten so much done and those breaks you recommended and rewards were the key..I am 95% finished with my storage project of clearing out 30 years worth of accumulated stuff. Once I took your advice, things went quicker and easier and actually more fun. I have accomplished so much...thanks to your book!

Hi Rita,

Iím almost all the way through your clutter book. And, I am proud to say, it inspired me. I went shopping for new clothes the other day and knew I needed to make room in my closet. So, I did the old, ďHave I worn this in the past year?Ē test and filled a large garbage bag for charity. Then, I read your book and realized that I didnít go far enough. So, I went back into my closet for the next hour and reorganized it. I also filled another larger garbage bag with additional items. Better still, I now have a $500 tax deduction. And I love how organized my closet looks. I know EXACTLY where everything is and will no longer search in panic mode. AND your book made it all so easy
Rob Sullivan, author of Getting Your Foot In the Door When You Don't Have Leg to Stand On

I'm cleaning my attic! This has been a project on my mind for a couple of years or so, but it's really been bugging me since reading The Clutter-Busting Handbook and hearing you speak.
I am an organized fanatic in every aspect. But for whatever reason, that darned attic looked like war-torn Boznia before I attacked it a few weeks ago. I've been spending several hours every weekend for some time now organizing, throwing things out, and making many deliveries to Salvation Army, Goodwill, and Fox Valley Thrift - spreading the joy of junk!
I will celebrate when this is finished.
