When you think of what it will take to clean your house, are you so overwhelmed you throw up your hands and cry, "It's all too much"? If somewhere along the way you've simply lost the ability to keep your home organized and clutter-free, then It's All Too Much has the solution you've been searching for.

Critic Reviews

"Walsh...has written a self-help guide for the slovenly. He addresses the psychology that drives people to accumulate, helps readers come to terms with their own issues, and guides them in a plan to streamline and organize." (Akron Beacon Journal)

Not too much now!

This was my first audible, and I can't believe what a positive impact it has had on my life. The author is the narrator and he takes you step-by-step through your house helping to understand why you may be keeping "stuff" and how to divest yourself of it. I have donated tons to charity and still have a ways to go to declutter my life, but I listen to him over and over again to reinforce what he's imparting to me. Proof that it works...I went to Ireland last week and each time I was thinking of getting a "dust collector", I looked at it carefully and set it in my mind as a memory and then put it down. I was so proud of myself...thinking I saved myself from having to deal with more stuff when I got home. If you have a cluttered home, this audio book is a winner!

I've tried a million and this is the best

I've tried clutter book after clutter book (laughing as I see them all cluttering up the bookshelf, heheh) and this one is the one that has changed me the most. Unlike most clutter books, it's not simply how to organize or simply the psychology of why we clutter - instead it iss equally "WHY we clutter" and "HOW to get rid of it and keep it from coming back". I love it.

Makes sense to me...

Peter Walsh narates his book with great enthusiasm. I found it very interesting and a book that I will no doubt return to again and again.

Great catalyst to change your life

After only the first third of the book I was hooked and spent the next 2 days sorting out the horror of our house - the study bedroom.
All done now and packing the car for the tip trip. A pile of lovely things to take next door for the children there.
Now there is one room in the house that I like and can go to build the energy to tackle the rest.
I don't feel overwhelmed any more and my goal is to create a home where I am not embarrassed to let people in.
Don't hesitate, just download it.

Great tips and reality check

I loved all the tips in this book, and I really love his Aussie, laid back but no-nonesense approach. Thank you, Peter! I will be buying life experiences from now on. Loved the personal experiences and emails too.
