Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Do you sometimes feel that your stuff is taking over your life? Do you ever wonder how it all got into your house in the first place? Does the chaos in your space reflect the chaos in your head?

Having done it all - having been an anxious clutter-bug herself, studied why we have stuff (headline: we're humans, it's normal) and set up a business to help people declutter - Emma Gleeson understands how you feel. Stuff Happens is her guide to sorting out your relationship with your stuff and finding the right way for you to declutter.

Having things is a part of life. Perfection is not an empty house, and minimalism does not need to be your goal. Emma will show you how to figure out a system that works for you and your life (and is good for the planet).

Filled with fantastic insights from her own and her clients' lives, lots of sound advice and practical tips, Stuff Happens will give you the tools to manage your stuff while being kinder to yourself.

Compassionate, enlightening and liberating, Stuff Happens will completely transform how you view clutter.

Stuff Happens

This book has had a very very positive impact on my life.
As a consequence if reading this book , I now live in a calmer let chaotic space.
I have a place for all of my stuff and I can find it easily.

Disappointing

I struggled with the very strong accent on this book, but it seemed worth the effort initially. However, this book seemed to lose its focus quite quickly.

I persevered, hoping it would improve, but was very unhappy how much time and emphasis was given to body image and basically the "fat is fine" argument reiterated over and over and over again. Not what I was expecting when I bought this book!
