You don’t have to live overwhelmed by stuff—you can get rid of clutter for good!

While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, real women with real families who are constantly growing and changing simply can’t purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff is a home that is difficult to maintain, so where do we begin? Add in paralyzing emotional attachments and constant life challenges, and it can feel almost impossible to make real decluttering progress.

In Decluttering at the Speed of Life, decluttering expert and author Dana White identifies the mind-sets and emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter. Then, in her signature humorous approach, she provides workable solutions to break through these struggles and get clutter out—for good!

But more than simply offering strategies, Dana dives deep into how to implement them, no matter the reader’s clutter level or emotional resistance to decluttering. She helps identify procrasticlutter—the stuff that will get done eventually so it doesn’t seem urgent—as well as how to make progress when there’s no time to declutter.

Sections of the book include

  • Why You Need This Book (You Know Why)
  • Your Unique Home
  • Decluttering in the Midst of Real Life
  • Change Your Mind, Change Your Home
  • Breaking Through Your Decluttering Delusions
  • Working It Out Room by Room
  • Helping Others Declutter
  • Real Life Goes On (and On)

As long as we’re living and breathing, new clutter will appear. The good news is that decluttering can get easier, become more natural, and require significantly fewer hours, less emotional bandwidth, and little to no sweat to keep going.

About the Contributor(s) Dana K. White

Dana K. White is a blogger, podcaster, speaker, and (much to her own surprise) a decluttering expert. She taught both English and theatre arts before leaving her job to make her family her life's work. In an attempt to get her home under control, Dana started blogging as “Nony” (short for anonymous) at A Slob Comes Clean. Dana soon realized she was not alone in her housekeeping struggles and in her feelings of shame. Today, Dana shares realistic home management strategies and a message of hope for the hopelessly messy through her blog, weekly podcasts, and videos. Dana lives with her husband and three kids just outside of Dallas, Texas. Oh, and she’s funny.

Review by Randi
Overall Rating
If you, like me, are in a seemingly never ending battle with clutter, this book is a MUST read! When I chose the word Renew for my word of the year this year, one of the big goals on my mind was to get rid of some of the excess stuff. You see, a few years ago, we moved into our current home into a smaller home. Until that point, I had always been really great about doing a massive purge before every move, but this one came on us very quickly with no time to prepare so rather than doing the sort beforehand, it all came with us, and I just had to find places to stuff it. And stuff it I have! I always thought I would get to it eventually, and I have for many things--- clothes, and outgrown toys, etc--- but here we are two years later and more has come in than gone out.

I needed this book!

This truly is a great read, It's practical, it's fun... it has me inspired to just get it done. And not only that, but to keep it done! Some of these were tips I already knew, and some were new to me, but all made perfect sense! It truly helped to break it down to make tackling the job a little less overwhelming. This is one book that I am certain to come back to time and time again throughout the years, whenever I need that extra motivation again. (Posted on 3/20/2018)
