I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.
This year has definitely been the year of “organize my life.” I have been working so hard to de-clutter our home, put new cleaning routines into practice, overhaul the way I budget, and figure out the best way that I can plan my days without feeling overwhelmed. Goodness, what a difficult task that is to undertake!
When I saw Ruth’s new book, Unstuffed, I knew that I needed to read it. A book about getting rid of the excess from all aspects of your life seemed right up my alley, and it did not disappoint.
Unstuffed is full of great advice as to what we need to do in order to get rid of the clutter that fills our homes, our schedules, and our souls. But, it isn’t only advice. She takes us through her own journey of getting rid of the clutter.
It is always interesting to me to see the transformations that people can make over the years. I love to see the changes, and so this type of book is fun for me to read. The journey that person goes on – I think that is why I enjoy memoirs so much, being able to relate to a certain path, or know that I am not alone in wanting to change certain aspects of my life.
Unstuffed takes us on a journey to get rid of the excess in our lives and to more fully appreciate our lives without the stress of all the stuff we seem to cling to.
I think the most interesting fact that I read in the book was about the amount of information that we process daily and how overwhelming that is. The sheer amount of information that is created now as opposed to years ago is staggering. And we are constantly connected to it with the internet, and cell phones.
If you are looking for a book that encourages you on your own path to simplify without becoming a minimalist, this is definitely a great book to read. It is full of practical advice, and great stories. I felt myself nodding my head through most of the book.
Are you trying to organize your life and home this year? Any tips to share?
