Summary

Bursting with practical and relatable advice, this audiobook injects enthusiasm, energy and some much-needed humour into the essential task of decluttering. Forget the holier-than-thou approach promising a whole new you if you alphabetise your sock drawer - this is decluttering for real people, with real lives. With a refreshingly honest approach, Debora tackles the best ways to deal with domestic dilemmas, cluttered kitchens and crowded cupboards. She includes handy tips and tricks for the average time-poor person. Tasks are broken down into achievable goals and quick fixes, allowing even the busiest of people to create, maintain and achieve a tidy home. And it's not just the home she tackles.

Debora helps you banish anxiety and kick-start productivity with '10 decluttering commandments' and includes honest advice on how to conquer the fear of change. The busy writer, who has transformed her own cluttered home and mind using these techniques, also explores how best to unclutter your virtual world, from managing social media accounts to balancing email mailing lists.

A Nudge to help You Declutter

Beautiful narration. I found that this book doesn't work as an audi book. It refers you to look at different pages throughout this book. The tips given are usefu, but I will have to get the printed copy to fully get benefits of the things the author referred to on different pages. I feel that I got less than half my money's worth from the audio. Now I have to pay again for the printed book.
Note to self: Novels & Biographies etc. are good as audio books, not How-To-Books!

Great book filled with common sense and really practical tips

I’ve struggled with decluttering for a while and have looked at other books which, although impressive, haven’t really resonated with me.

Debora is like a really good friend who tells it like it is and gets you - well, me for sure! - to rethink why I’ve become so attached to stuff.

Her no nonsense, common sense approach, coupled with the warmth and compassion is a real winner.

I liked the audible version so much (great content, beautifully narrated) that I bought the book as well.

Couldn’t have come at a better time as I’m about to downsize on quite a scale.

Highly recommended and thank you Debora!
