Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind, and Soul
"We live in a world that's constantly telling us we need to do more, have more, and be more. It's exhausting and consistently the only thing we ever have more of is stress. As women, we have the tendency to overstuff our lives, our schedules, and our homes with things that really aren't beneficial. And our souls suffer because of our unwillingness to let go." Ruth Soukup tackles this issue head-on and gives practical steps to be purposeful with the stuff.

"Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind, and Soul" offers a practical guide for anyone looking to de-clutter their life. The author presents 10 simple habits, which alone can go a long way to help you simplify your life. They are not earth-shattering ideas; rather, they are simple but effective ways to achieve a lot for a little time. Here are a few: making your bed properly, promptly trashing junk mail, or even just cleaning the kitchen sink. Each of these habits only take a minute or two, but they are a good step to simplifying and de-cluttering your home.
I have read many home organization books but to be honest, they are usually hard to read and more of a checklist instead of digging deeper into the real issues. This book has three sections – Home, Mind and Soul. In the Home section, Ruth really relates to her readers. Explaining how we feel obligated because of gifts and overwhelmed with too much stuff. She gives lots of tips for cleaning – my favorite was “…focus on only one area”- best advice ever. She goes on to explain that no matter how much or how little you do, everything is an accomplishment. I constantly need a reminder to live a meaningful life instead of filling my time with unimportant tasks. Soul is the third part of her book, which touches on friendships, wellness and balance – each an important part of every person.
