Review: 5 Days to a Clutter Free Home by Sandra Felton and Marsha Sims
Sandra Felton and Marsha Sims have written a sensitive book on a tough subject. What do those who are prone to clutter and disorganization do to fix their dilemma?
They even include the following checklist in the book, making it easy for readers to determine if they really need to take action now: "You are tired of seeing the clutter. • You are embarrassed to let anyone come into your house. • You waste time looking for things. • You spend money buying duplicates for things you already have—somewhere. • You have a specific emergency, such as a planned visitor. • You don’t want to leave this mess for your heirs. • You need to move, but—oh, my! • Your family is putting pressure on you to clean up. • You feel helpless and hopeless because you can’t solve the problem. • You want beauty. • The house is a continual burden. • You are putting other things on hold until you solve this problem".
Does this sound like you? If so, then you'll want to read this book. The authors have come up with a method for getting your entire house decluttered in just 5 days. Sound impossible? They say it's not, if you use their Mount Rushmore method.
Instead of a judgy, preachy book about people who have a clutter problem, the authors instead explain why some people are prone to clutter and how to modify this behavior. They include scriptures and real-life examples, too.
