    " Very fast read with lots of interesting (and do-able) ideas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 SterlingSpider | 2/19/2014

    " This book was exactly what I needed, a comprehensive "how to de-clutter and take control of your stuff" book that actually spoke to me both about the how and the why. Walsh approaches it realistically with the knowledge that he's talking to pack rats (not neat freaks in a freak house cluttering accident), and acknowledges the fact that different people have different lifestyles and may need to attack things differently. Furthermore he presents things in a way that don't make you feel doomed from the start. Most importantly it gives some real reasons for clearing things out, well beyond "it certainly is a lot easier to find your keys" which I think is necessary to keep an inveterate collector (like myself) on task. There's some really insightful and helpful talk about what things represent to people and why they keep them which really brings home the fact that de-cluttering is not so much about finding your remote easily but living the life you envision for yourself. I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels even just a little bit that their stuff is taking on a life of its own. "

    " i really thought this was a great book. it got me motivated to get the rest of my room unpacked and really a bunch of it was tossed out anyway. this book also made me realize that i have held on to some things that i don't need but kept because, because, because. i like that it goes room by room, so although i didn't need it for the whole house (and i'm not a clutter keeper), i like that i can reference ideas for individual rooms. "

    " I guess as far as organizational and decluttering books go, this one is just fine, but I was happy to discover that I don't have as too big of a problem with hoarding, especially since we seem to move every few years and dejunk along the way. There were some good suggestions for storage ideas for the different rooms/zones in the house, and I know of a few people in my life who could probably benefit from this book a lot more than me, so I don't think it was a waste of my time to go through this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 2/4/2014

    " That choir of angels you heard singing tonight can mean only one thing: I've finished reading another book! My house was never a mess, but it definitely has lingering pockets of clutter that I want to be rid of. I read Walsh's book for inspiration and suggestions on how I can create a home I can more fully enjoy, where everything has a place. I've gotten rid of six or so bags of items so far, and I feel better (and more energized) already. The big challenge remains my office, where I'm sitting now, surrounded by piles of paper that I need to sort through. There's a lot of recycling in my future. If anyone is looking for help in this area, I can certainly recommend "It's All Too Much." "

    " This is a good book for me to keep on my shelf for when I need to be motivated to clean stuff out. It is a good reminder that stuff should not control you or the quality of your life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 1/16/2014

    " I've already cleaned out my closet. I'm a new man. "

    " I am an organizer at heart so obviously I love Peter Walsh and everything he writes! This book would be helpful for someone who wants to get a handle on their clutter but doesn't know where to start.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melody | 8/22/2011

    " Pretty simplistic approach to managing clutter. The, forgive me, cookie-cutter-clutter solution. The book is also printed on that really cheap paper that smells a little funny- if the publisher isn't motivated to invest in decent paper... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cate | 6/4/2011

    " I should probably spend more time throwing stuff away, rather than just reading about throwing stuff away. But as clutter books go, this was a good one. "

    " It's definately all too much and I need to work on this. Good book to get me inspired, but even reading it exhausts me. I am grateful that I have cleaned up so much in the last year. Still more to go. "
