Is your stuff pushing you out of your home?

Find hundreds of proven (and painless) tips for clearing out your clutter room-by-room and top to bottom in Kick the Clutter. For each room, you'll learn how to identify key objects you really love or need, how to separate yourself from stuff you never liked but feel you "have" to keep, and how to let go of those sentimental keepsakes that have outworn their welcome but become a habit. And you'll learn how to reorganize what's left.

Once you've cleared all that clutter, you still need to kick it out of your home. You'll find out what to do with all that stuff (and even make some money!)--from how an eBay store works to how to get the most from consignment shops, yard sales, used bookstores, flea markets, and antiques auctions, to how to donate items for tax deductions, to creative ways to get people to haul your junk for free. The key to clutter freedom is to clear out the excess without losing what you love in the process.

Very comprehensive, has a section for just about every room possible, and every item possible in that room. Also, advises that you rate every single item on a love it/lose it and use it/useless scale. It seems like a very time consuming and not so practical strategy. Would not recommend this book for the whole house, but because it's so detailed, is good if you're clearing out a space in particular like 'office desk' or 'guest room'. Maybe if you're feeling adventurous you can try to tackle the basement or garage with this method, but it mostly seems overwhelming.

As someone who struggles with clutter, this was an interesting read. Some of the tips were helpful - but like most advice, it's easy to give, but far harder to follow.
