9780863154287: Clear the Clutter: Make Space For Your Life

  • Why do you never have clean clothes when you need them?
  • Why do you never know where you put something for safekeeping?
  • And why does your life feel so out of control?
Whether you need to know how to organize your laundry, weekly shopping, office computer files or your ten-year backlog of family photographs, this book can help. Full of no-nonsense advice, practical exercises, handy tips and checklists, it can be used to address a specific problem or as an overview for clearing up your life.

Sorting out your surroundings has other benefits, too: the practical experience of ordering a home or work space leads on naturally to rethinking other aspects of life. Clearing out the clutter really can make space for your life, and offer greater emotional and personal stability.

About the Author:

Inge van der Ploeg has worked for many years with The Housingkeeping Bureau and The Efficiency Bureau in her native Holland, assisting many clients―both private individuals and professional organizations―to order their environments more efficiently.

Review:

'This is a deceptively simple self-help book, covering a many-layered subject. Scattered throughout are exercises, tips and asides which, if judiciously applied, will surely bring about great changes.' -- Margaret Barty, New Vision, November 2005 'Before you go crashing into that room full of personal treasure, I would recommend taking the time to get hold of a copy of this book and read it. Not only is it a concise plan of how to go about tackling a wide variety of household problems, but it delves into the psychology of why your life may have become cluttered. Read these words of wisdom. This could be the best GBP6.99 you have ever invested.' -- Jackie Harris, Worcester Evening News, 6 March 2004
