About this title


[Read by Susan Boyce and Lloyd James]

STUFFology 101 is for those us who want to get the clutter out of our lives without being featured on reality TV. We can still use our bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen, but we harbor secrets.

  1. Do you race around to pick up piles when someone's at the door?
  2. Do you close the door to hide your stuff in the spare room?
  3. Do you still have boxes to unpack from your last move a dozen years ago?
  4. Are you unable to focus because your mind is so frazzled?
STUFFologists Brenda Avadian and Eric Riddle share four decades of experience dealing with STUFF-uhh, clutter.

Inside STUFFology 101, you'll find FUN and FLEXIBLE approaches to get your mind out of what YOU DEFINE as CLUTTER. Funny, serious, and humbling stories are woven with tips to help you clear the toxic clutter out of your life.

BRENDA AVADIAN, MA author of nine books, was raised by a mother who could not say no to a free offer and a father who had "spare parts for everything." She broke the clutter cycle in her own life by learning to let go.

"It's mine!" ERIC RIDDLE would say while holding onto his children's stuff for many years. Once he defined his clutter, he discovered that getting his mind out of the clutter is an ongoing process.

At the end of your life, what will matter most - -THINGS or PEOPLE?

Are you ready to manage the STUFF in your life?
STUFFology 101: Get Your Mind Out of the Clutter

About the Author:

STUFFologist Brenda Avadian, MA, has been dealing with clutter since age eight--that's forty-six years. ''I've struggled with letting go,'' she says. ''I've tried letting go of things, but what if I need to refer to that 1970's National Geographic article on Yugoslavian protocol?''

Brenda has authored nine books, served as a university professor, executive coach, corporate consultant, caregiver, and national speaker.

She traveled 2,000 miles to clear out her parents' home--filled with her father's collection of ''spare parts for everything'' and all the free stuff her mother amassed after saying yes instead of saying no.

''It amazes me what occupies our lives. We come into this world with nothing. We leave this world with nothing. Yet we spend a significant amount of our lives with things,'' she says.

It wasn't until Brenda began caring for her father and going through his STUFF that an eighty-five year-old sage's question got her mind out of the clutter: ''Where do you want to spend your time, with things or with people?''

STUFFologist Eric Riddle has been a lifelong packrat. He believes: I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

Since age eleven, he's been dealing with his parents' clutter and his own--that's thirty-seven years.

Working in customer service and sales gives Eric a deeper view of human nature...that our clutter issues demand unique answers.

Clutter is a reflection of life and recent events led Eric to face the clutter in his own life:

  • After his eldest daughter, Jackie, moved out of the house and got married, Eric realized that his home didn't need to be a storage unit for his grown children.
  • Eric learned how to keep things cleaner and better organized from middle daughter, Beth after her stint in the Army.
  • When his wife, Susan, and youngest daughter, Maggie, needed to practice pool for a cancer fundraiser, the whole family helped clear off the pool table.

Eric believes that getting your mind out of the clutter is an ongoing process.
