Unstuffed – Decluttering Your Home, Mind And Soul – Book Review & Giveaway


Unstuffed by Ruth Soukup

If you are a clutterbug, I’d like to share a book that can help you to transform your life!

Unstuffed – Decluttering Your Home, Mind And Soul by New York Times Bestselling Author Ruth Soukup is not just another how-to book that makes you feel guilty for having a messy home.

Unstuffed is a book that helps you get to the root of the issue and transform the way you view the stuff that you let enter your homes, your minds, and your souls to begin with, so that you’re motivated to eliminate the things that no longer serve you as you create a vision for the way you’d like your home and your life to function!

Unstuffed Quote

Ruth writes:

In one way or another, I think that we are all drowning. We are all drowning in a sea of unrelenting clutter – this stuff – that threatens to wash us away unless we somehow learn to swim… We have to choose our stuff well or it may just bury us alive.

In Unstuffed, Ruth uses her personal story as the backdrop to show how God can clean up even the biggest of messes – and provides us with the tips and information we need to clean up our own messes.

She’s even created a 10-Day Challenge to help you jump-start the process!

Uncluttered 10 Day Challenge

If you are a clutterbug – or know someone who is – then I highly recommend Unstuffed to you!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    Right now it is books. I have so many, but I love books so much. I am need help in other areas to especially fitting a lot of stuff in a house with few storage closets.

  20. Dani Wagner says:

    As a mom with three small children I think I most need help “unstuffing” their games, toys, and things. I am pretty organized but feel like we probably don’t get all that we have.

  21. I am in the process of decluttering our house and, as a family, we do our best to be mindful of the schedule and avoid constant business. We will have to be more intentional about that as our kids get older!

  22. Linda says:

    I keep the littlest trinkets. To me they are gold (ticket stubs, receipts, kids schoolwork) My oldest just graduated, and now its time to clear it all out.
