Book Description from the publisher:

STUFF. It's everywhere. Lurking in corners and closets, spilling onto counters and coffee tables, creating havoc everywhere we look. And it's not just the physical clutter that weighs us down. Oh no, it is the stress of overbooked schedules, and the weight of life that sometimes feels oppressive and totally out of whack.
New York Times bestselling author Ruth Soukup feels your pain--she has been there too. Through personal stories, Biblical truth, and practical action plans, she will inspire and empower each of us to finally declutter not just our home, but our mind and soul as well. Unstuffed is real, honest, and gets right down to the question we are all facing--how can we take back our lives from the stuff that is weighing us down?
In this book, together we will:
• Create a comprehensive vision for our homes, and make instant changes to improve its overall function.
• Discover that more closet space is not the solution, and instead learn how to set strict limits for the stuff we bring in
• Overcome the frustration of dealing with our kids' influx of stuff and implement practical solutions for keeping the chaos at bay.
• Recognize the pitfalls of an overstuffed schedule BEFORE it gets out of hand, and instead learn to combat the culture of busy that keeps us running from one thing to the next.
• Finally conquer that mountain of paperwork that threatens to tumble down around us at aent.
• Let go of the guilt that gets attached to gifts and instead learn to separate our loved ones from their stuff.
• Begin to cultivate our real friendships while eliminating the toxic relationships that weigh us down.

My Review:
I really needed to read "Unstuffed" and this will be a book that I will refer back to many, many times.  "Unstuffed" deals with clutter that is in our lives, including our home, mind and soul.  I know that I have an issue with clutter in my home, just too much stuff I feel like at times and I am constantly organizing and constantly trying to maintain a clean, organized home (which seems impossible at times!).  Ruth has numerous ideas that I am excited to try out to help me with keeping organized by decluttering.  I loved that this book also focused on our minds and souls being cluttered.  This can come from having a hectic, busy schedule and not being able to say "no" and feeling guilty.  This is an area I need to work on as well I know.  I found this whole book to be a worthwhile and much-needed read and also an inspiration to really work on decluttering my life.
