De-Clutter, De-Stress® Your Life

The Step-by-Step, Interactive Guidebook for a Clutter-free, Less Stressful and More Fulfilling Life

DeClutter DeStress Your LifeHelen has revised her successful book De-Clutter, De-Stress Your Life. “When my low inventory of books in 2006 called me to reprint the original edition for the fourth time, I decided to re-evaluate the text. I had downsized my life for the second time, this time from six rooms to three. So I downsized my book.” The revised edition is a 142-page workbook with new and updated text and additional motivational quotes so positively received in the original edition. Based on Helen’s successful workshop of the same name, De-Clutter, De-Stress Your Life is a practical, self-help book with a positive tone that weaves in spiritual principles for long-term success and humor to get you through some of the fear and stress that accompany change. Its interactive approach makes De-Clutter, De-Stress Your Life different from all other organizing books because it focuses on you – the person who possesses and what it takes mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually to let go and de-clutter possessions. “Make this edition your companion on the road less cluttered.”

Helen Volk is a professional organizer whose book De-Clutter De-Stress Your Life provides a road map to help you navigate through the process of de-cluttering. Her warm and positive writing style reflects not only her personal experience with de-cluttering but also a strong commitment to help others learn how to live clutter free.The book  itself is also well organized which reflects Ms. Volk’s ability to provide, clear and helpful guidance.  The book is very comprehensive and what I especially like is the author’s approach to de-cluttering which breaks down the process by identifying tasks that are easier to start with and then allows the reader to gain confidence so that s/he can move on to more challenging aspects of de-cluttering. I have other books on de-cluttering but this book provides a wealth of valuable information, supportive guidance and is laced with wisdom and humor.  I highly recommend it. ~ Debra B., Rensselaer, NY
