Summary

Ruth Soukup, a New York Times best-selling author and founder of the wildly popular blog LivingWellSpendingLess.com, knows all too well just how overwhelming it can feel to have a home - and life - filled with too many things. Through personal stories and practical action plans, she inspires and empowers other women to finally declutter not only their homes but their minds and souls as well. Unstuffed is real and honest and speaks to the heart of the question so many of today's women are asking: How can we take back our lives from all the STUFF that is weighing us down?

From recognizing the pitfalls of overfilled closets to combating the culture of busy that keeps women running from one thing to the next to finding life balance by learning how to let go of unhealthy habits and stress, listeners will journey with Ruth as they overcome chaotic, out-of-control schedules, overstuffed homes, and undernourished souls.

Worked for me!

I listened to this one very quickly. I really like this narrator because she sounds so relatable. The tips were VERY useful and my house has stayed clean and far more organized since I finished the book.
There are a lot of little references to bible passages, but if you listen to the entire book, you'll understand that the author is not preachy, just true to herself. I don't like having others beliefs forced on me, but the book didn't make me feel like that at all. I've never read her blog but the book was written in such a way that you didn't need to be up to date on her blog posts.

Can't tell a book by it's cover!

There was so much reference to Christianity and Jesus particularly st the end of the book. You would never know that this would be a theme in a book about getting uncluttered or unstuck.

I am Jewish and really preferred not hearing about going to church. The uncluttered part was good but you should have left out the religion!

Started great, ended too personal and religious

For the most part this book provides solid guidance on how to declutter your life. I liked that the book walks you through the thought process and justification for clearing out your home, business, or whatever of physical objects. It changed my perception on a few common issues involving clutter and organization and I was able implement meaningful changes. However, after this section the book turned to personal relationships. This is where things quickly deteriorated for me. It got very personal (way too much information) and very religious (preachy but not pushy) for my type of interest in the book. Overall the advice throughout the book was reasonably valid but the author nearly lost all credibility towards the end. I'd recommend giving this book a shot at a local library or scanning it in a book store before making the purchase to make sure it fits your expectations first.

Fantastic!

Another great book from Ruth! Ruth opens our eyes to the truth behind "our stuff" and not just the ways of getting rid of it.

No big takeaways for me

New to the decluttering journey I have been reading many books to help me thru the process. This is mostly her personal stories and it sounds like she still has a long way to go; like still dealing with a storage unit full of inherited stuff.
I even tried to listen to it twice to see if I was distracted and missed something. Nope.
The main thing I recall is to be careful when posting your declutter journey on social media lest you offend family and friends that have given you some of those items.

Great ideas

This book has a lot of wonderful ideas for unstuffing your life. I particularly enjoyed the sections regarding sentimental items and items of those who have passed away. While the narrator was not my favorite, the content was well worth listening to.

so much great information!

helped me see the value in not just holding onto stuff. I was able to think through getting gifts for the grand daughters. Mother's asked for now gifts at party's but we had to do something. so we talked and got them tickets to events. so thankful for the help.
