The New York Times bestseller that’s “LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY” (Elle Décor) and “SPOT-ON...with a healthy amount of cursing" (POPSUGAR)

The anti-clutter movement is having a moment. You may have heard about a book―an entire book―written on the topic of tidiness and how “magical” and “life-changing” it is to neaten up and THROW AWAY YOUR BELONGINGS. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s time to fight that ridiculousness and start buying even more stuff and leaving it any place you want. Guess what, neatniks? Science shows that messy people are more creative.*

Being a slob is an art, and there’s a fine line between being a consumer and being a hoarder. Don’t cross that line. This book shows you how to clutter mindfully and with great joy. The results are mind-blowing. Your plants will stop dying. Your whiskey bottle will never run dry. Your drugstore points will finally add up to a free jar of salsa and some nice shampoo. You’ll go shopping and discover you’ve lost weight...

It's time to take back your life from the anti-clutter movement.  

*As well as smarter and more attractive.

Review:

"Every chapter - from why you shouldn't feel guilty about having a ton of stuff, to how to deal with all the stuff, anyway - is laugh-out-loud funny."--Elle Decor

"Takes on those true believers and their gospel of 'life-changing tidiness,' debunking several well-publicized myths in the process. Though her book is intended as parody rather than self-help primer, much of it carries the weight of truth."--Publishers Weekly

"A humorist's manifesto" --New York Times

"Hilarious"--Apartment Therapy "Every KonMari enthusiast needs to read The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place."--Pop Sugar

"Learn the art of being messy and why you should love every minute of it." --Star Magazine, Hot Book Pick of the Week  "Read this book and, when you're done, throw it on the floor. Doesn't that feel good?" Globe and Mail
