Clutter Busting

Most of us spend our lives accumulating "stuff"--whether it is a desk covered with papers, a closet overflowing with clothes, a kitchen crammed with dishes, or a basement that hides boxes that we don't want to see. Most of this "stuff," Palmer asserts, carries negative emotions for us, and is holding us back, making us feel guilty, or quashing our spirit. By throwing out or giving away items we do not need, he believes that we can free ourselves from this negativity and unlock our potential. This book is loaded with anecdotal stories and practical tips for deciding what to keep and what to toss. The book is based on the idea that people may be scared to change, but by changing their surroundings, they are in fact, changing themselves. He also addresses the addictive nature of holding on to "stuff."
