Overview
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 bathroom, bedroom, 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?

Self-proclaimed “stuffologists” Avadian and Riddle have spent a lifetime dealing with hoarding’s little sister, “STUFFitis,” the plague of accumulated clutter “diverting us from our life’s purpose and what we deserve.” Using their combined knowledge, they provide tips on de-cluttering your physical space, hard drive, and even your frenzied mind. On the digital front, they recommend organizing files into folders by content and date for easy access. As for the tangible, the authors suggest devoting manageable blocks of time for sorting through the debris, concentrating on one project at a time, and assigning one location for all of your paperwork and incoming mail. Further, one can “overcome the force of ownership” by assessing an object’s importance versus the value of a clutter-free space. Avadian and Riddle prove sympathetic guides, revealing personal stories about a soup spoon representing fond memories of Avadian’s mother and the sci-fi toys that made up Riddle’s prized collection. To demonstrate de-cluttering’s benefits, Avadian recalls cleaning out her father’s home and finding $28,000 in savings bonds—and the ability to “feel the flow of life once more.” Though there’s nothing particularly groundbreaking here, anyone suffering from CHAOS (can’t have anybody over syndrome) may find this guide a step in the right direction.
