Item Description...
Overview
We love stuff. Clothes. Shoes. Make-up. Jewelry. Books. Pictures. Movies. CDs. Letters. Recipes. Magazines. STUFF! Our consumer-driven society is constantly enticing us to want more, and before we know it--it's just too much!

We collect things for someday--recipes we plan to bake, craft projects we want to make, or gifts we hope to give. And unfortunately, what begins as an innocent collection of odds and ends soon grows into heaping mounds of clutter and chaos. Before we realize it, clutter seeps in and sucks away our time, our peace of mind, and our freedom. And if we're not careful, our possessions end up owning us. Clutter mentally and physically sucks the life out of us and traps us in a life we were never meant to have. But there is hope.

In Too Much Stuff, author Kathryn Porter challenges us to dig into the clutter of our homes and attack the attitudes and behaviors that allow this chaos to immobilize us. While giving practical steps on how to de-clutter our homes, she shows us how to de-clutter our hearts by realizing that God loves us through the messes we make and has a plan for us that doesn't involve being confined to clutter.

Too Much Stuff includes:
Reflection questions within each chapter to help you assess the extent of your clutter
Room-by-room de-cluttering techniques and practical advice on how to keep a clutter free, beautiful home
Homebuilding sections to remind you to seek God and His word as your foundation
Prayer points in each chapter that help you focus on God throughout your de-cluttering journey
An internal assessment for understanding how our childhoods and choices affect the way we deal with clutter and how to end the destructive cycle

THE HELP YOU NEED TO DECLUTTER YOUR LIFE!  Mar 7, 2007
If you struggle with holding onto clutter in your home, it can be an act of deep faith to let it go. Kathryn Porter understands a woman's desire to keep "too much stuff."

In her inspiring book, she bares her heart to readers with the story of how she grew up in a cluttered home and took these habits into her adult lifestyle. When she reached a point of desperation, she prayed to God for help and enlisted the advice of wise friends.

In learning to rid her home of material junk, Katherine began to feel deep spiritual cleansing, uncovering peace and joy. She wants to help YOU do the same.

Her book is a powerful tool for today's busy women who need help letting go of things to make room for God. (If you love FlyLady, you'll love this book, and the principles for decluttering come from a Christian perspective.)

Too Much Stuff is really stuffed!  Feb 28, 2007
Too Much Stuff is stuffed from cover to cover with techniques on how to de-clutter both your heart and your home. This advice is given in a clear, easy-to-read manner which has us eager to decontaminate our homes of unwanted, unneeded, and unused items. Not only does Mrs. Porter help us make our homes cleaner and our space more effective, but she also gently encourages us to de-clutter our hearts - which is where the clutter really begins.

Kathryn begins the saga of de-cluttering by sharing her own heartfelt story of growing up in a cluttered home and how she brought those habits with her after she'd married and moved out on her own.

Each chapter brings us deeper into our clutter and gives prudent advice on how to start shoveling our way to a neater home. Topics range from defining clutter, planning how to de-clutter in an orderly way, working in the main rooms such as kitchens to less seen rooms like bathrooms and bedrooms. She also tackles the dirty job of paper work and bills - those seldom touched piles on our desks.

But Mrs. Porter doesn't stop there. How does clutter begin? Why do we `need' to keep things? Are we so cluttered in home and mind that we push our time with God aside? Do we go to God with real needs for `food and raiment' or for those sale items we can't seem to pass up?

When I finished reading Too Much Stuff I was taking a second look at my home and my heart.

 
My favorite decluttering/cleaning book  Dec 27, 2006
I have really enjoyed reading this book and putting the principles into action. I related to almost everything she said about her own life, esp. "Having a presentable home seemed like an impossible dream, yet I knew it was possible because other people did it." This sentence gave me the encouragement I needed instead of the defeat I usually feel when I think of other's "perfect" homes. I also loved her friends very practical advice, "You can't keep everything and keep a clean house." And Kathyrn repeats that sentence a lot, which is good for me. I love how she gives an overview plan, but also gives detailed tips (like buying Glad Flex bags and how to do laundry). Her book isn't only about decluttering, it's about cleaning too. Overall, this is a wonderful book...very encouraging and very practical. Thanks Kathryn!
 
A solidly helpful book for improving one's quality of life, highly recommended.  Nov 5, 2006
Kathryn Porter (member of the National Association of Professional Organizers) presents Too Much Stuff is a "faith-based message on keeping a clean house", as told from the personal experience of a mother who learned to preserve hygiene and order for the sake of health, well-being, and as a means to increase her connection to God rather than to distracting material items and disorganization. Chapters include questions and guidelines for assessing the extent of one's clutter, prayer points to help focus on God while de-cluttering, and practical advice for ending the clutter cycle - not only cleaning up, but taking measures to prevent clutter accumulation. A solidly helpful book for improving one's quality of life, highly recommended.
 
Too Much Stuff is Right!!  Oct 10, 2006
Too Much Stuff is a great way to take the first steps toward clearing the mind, heart and house off all the crap we've stored over the years. Porter's "down home" approach to getting rid of the stuff of accumulated years and generations may seem hard to take at first, but anyone who is serious about doing more than "clearing a path" around their home and their heart could really benefit from this book.

What really attracted me to this approach was the way I relate to many of the situations described in the book.. My wife and I have boxes of stuff we've saved over the years and our kids are the same.. We have several Christmas and birthday's worth of toys the kids don't play with anymore that could easily be boxed and donated to Goodwill.

The lessons in Too Much Stuff need to be acted on, not contemplated.. This book is a great guide to getting started!!
