Her combination of experience and good humor-based on her hundreds of seminars and advice received from people all over the country-will win over the most reluctant convert.

        Everyone has a corner in his or her home or office that has become a catchall for a wealth of "stuff." In this entertaining read, Emmett (The Procrastinator's Handbook) aides clutter collectors in identifying "When Enough Becomes Too Much" and doles out advice on how to achieve and maintain an inviting and airy living space. A "Recovered Pack Rat," Emmett argues that living or working in a cluttered environment can take a toll on one's physical and emotional well being: "When you are surrounded by confusion, you feel confused; when you are surrounded by junk, you feel junky." This slim but thorough book helps readers tackle problem areas like closets and garages, and also includes tips on emptying e-mail accounts and clearing out ordinary paper clutter. Emmett lists 50 ways to get rid of and limit unwanted items, naming various charities and online auctions and making suggestions such as share magazine subscriptions with friends. Throughout, she includes helpful "clutter quizzes" that identify bad habits and gives readers practical tips on how to remain focused. With its sound advice and upbeat, encouraging tone, this book will motivate readers to get a jump on their spring cleaning.
