Interesting take on decluttering. The fundamentals are the same (toss, give, repair boxes, etc.) as most other books on the topic, but the coverage of impact of clutter on various parts of one's life is fascinating. Inspiring read.

Karen Kingston has an interesting take on clutter. In this book, she writes about clearning many kinds of clutter, not just physical "stuff" clutter. She introduces Feng Shui, but doesn't explain it in great detail. The main thought regarding physical clutter is that the energy in your house (or other space) is blocked by the clutter, and that by clearing the clutter, the energy will flow better.

The chapter "Clutter and the Feng Shui Bagua" seemed to me to be the only part of the book that really connected Feng Shui and clutter together. I found some helpful information there, but wish it had gone into more detail and explanation. The rest of the book is much less focused. It seems that the author was trying to write a self-help book for any and all kinds of clutter that may exist in a person's life. The whole book seems to touch on different types of clutter (as included on the cover: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) and how they inter-relate, but it doesn't go very deep.

This book was easy to read quickly and is worth the time, even if you don't share the author's spiritual/metaphysical beliefs. It is written in first person from her to "you", and is interspersed with her personal experiences of clearing clutter and comments on her workshops and professional "space clearing" experiences.

Not just a book for achieving a clutter-free house, but a clutter-free life. Declutter your body, your emotions and your spirit - very inspirational.

Motivating book for clearing clutter. Explains the unseen effect clutter has on many facets of your life.
While I disagree with the author's philosphy and many of her opinions in regards reality, I nonetheless found the book interesting and helpful.

What an excellent audiotape. Karen Kingston has a great british voice. She has lots of enthusiasm and excitement about her subject and it comes across when she speaks. I learned a lot by listening to what she had to say.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to throw out stuff to make their home more livable. Karen explains the reasons why people can't part with "stuff"... such as they inherited things from their relatives and they feel they 'should' keep those things even if they never use them. Or they got presents from people and would feel guilty if they gave the presents away even if they don't like them.
Clearing away those things frees up energy, which actually makes us healthier and happier. Everytime I listened to the tapes, I learned something more. The interesting thing about this book is that the author gives you permission to let go of all the things you feel guilty about giving or throwing away. When you understand your motivation for "holding on", it is so much easier to let go.
