Publisher's Summary

Finally, a housekeeping and organizational system developed for those of us who'd describe our current living situation as a "f--king mess" that we "really need to get around to fixing one day". Unf--k Your Habitat is for anyone who has been left behind by traditional aspirational systems - the ones that ignore single people with full-time jobs, people without kids but living with roommates, and people with mental illnesses or physical limitations. Most organizational books are aimed at stay-at-home moms and people who seem to have unimaginable amounts of free time. They assume we all iron our sheets, have linen napkins to match our table runners, and can keep plants alive for longer than a week. Basically, they ignore most of us living here in the real world.
Interspersed with lists and challenges, this practical, no-nonsense guide helps you develop lifelong habits. It motivates you to embrace a new lifestyle in manageable sections so you can start applying the tactics as you progress. This philosophy is more realistic than aspirational, but the goal is the same: not everyone will have a showcase of a home, but whatever your habitat, you deserve for it to bring you happiness, not stress.


What the Critics Say

"Unf--k Your Habitat has the potential to change your life and to improve your mental outlook in truly beautiful ways." (Sara Benincasa, author of Real Artists Have Day Jobs)

Good advice, lost in the clutter

This book is 80% "don't be so hard on yourself, life is SO HAAAARD" and 20% good advice. Honestly, I wish I'd only listened to the summary chapter at the end.

stuck on gender

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Honestly after 45min I had to stop listening because she never moved forward into anything other than that a man is capable of doing house work believe it or not.... As a man who does house work after a day of work work I do not need to be convinced. Maybe ill try to finish the book at some point, but for now I would spend your money on the many other good books out there first.
