#02 Decluttering at the Speed of Life (Dana K. White)

Har været i gang med denne bog i VIRKELIG lang tid uden at få den læst færdig, men der er ikke noget som et nyt år til at snøvle sig sammen til at lukke “dårlige samvittigheder” ;o).. Blev i sin tid grebet af de første kapitler, men så synes jeg egentlig bare, forfatteren gentog sig selv i resten af bogen, og det blev lidt.. ensformigt? Men kan godt lide konceptet med at have en “container” til forskellige typer af ting :o) Er dog stadig mest til Marie Kondo :oD

Om bogen fra amazon.com:
While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, many of us 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)

  • Decluttering in the Midst of Real Life
