10 thoughts on “Mind Over Clutter: Cleaning Your Way to a Calm and Happy Home


    An easy read from beginning to end Simple, practical advice for achievable results.Nicola doesn t just tell you how to organise and declutter she explains why it s important and that s the bit that has stuck with me and that s the motivation I ve needed to start what I thought was a mammoth task.The book has been put into sections for each part of the house so its easier to refer back to the bits that I ve needed when I ve needed them.There aren t any before and after photos and some people could see that as a negative but the I think about it the I see that as a positive I m decluttering my home not someone else s I want to have my own before and after photos No one has the exact same house, the exact same furniture and the exact same belongings so why do I need to compare it to anyone else s.If you re looking for a book to motivate you without confusing you I highly recommend this one.

    It s ok There are some interesting tips with regard to making your own cleaning products but suggesting you keep light bulbs to make decorations seemed a tad anti decluttering Would have been better with some inspirational before after photos but it seems to all be aimed at getting you to the social media It s really a simplified Marie Kondo so if you re short of time took me about an hour or so to flick through go for this Otherwise stick to MK and do it once and do it properly.

    Down to earth, practical and easy to read much like the lovely TGCO herself I found myself reading this as soon as it landed it s so accessible to get into and I was soon rating to go All the tips seem so manageable and are delivered in an easy to digest style I have particularly loved the eco cleaning your house section Reminded me of old remedies and gave me new tips I have got my essential oils together and am ready to tackle many jobs in a Mind Over Clutter fashion, music blaring and one bit at a time.Thanks Nicola this book is a life saver.

    This book has changed my life I don t usually share what I m reading as I find it oddly personal, but I had to review this one.When I was a child my lovely mum did EVERYTHING for me, which unfortunately resulted in resenting and not really knowing how to do housework when I got older and certainly never enjoying doing it, even though my mental health soars when my house is clean and tidy Going through lots of bereavement at a young age also resulted in me hoarding quite a lot of things, and being worried about getting rid of stuff I didn t really need.Having multiple chronic illnesses and working full time also means I often don t have the energy to do the things I want to at home which in turn leaves me feeling depressed, useless and guilty, especially when being cluttered and disorganised impacts other areas of life Until recently my partner was doing all of the housework, which wasn t fair on him and I felt awful.Making my own eco cleaners there are loads of recipes in here has been amazing I ve been able to clean without triggering my asthma, which means I can do in one go I have major surgery coming up, and TGCO s account and this book have been a great inspiration to me to get my house in order beforehand I used to assume tasks would take all day or use up all of my energy, now I am capable of breaking them into manageable blocks If you re anything like me and struggle balancing everything, especially if you re battling illness, I thoroughly recommend this book 5 5.

    I am only on the first steps of reading the book and making lists of what I want decluttered and contacting people in my life to help me.I have tried to de clutter on my own for all the 34 years I ve been alive and I m so happy that one of the part of Nicola s system is to be brave enough to ask for help.I m excited and hopeful that I will like my home.
