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.

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.

It Works

I saw a few bad reviews of this audio book, so I almost didn't pick it up, but I do love the ufyh blog, so I thought I'd give it a shot. THEN I saw it was narrated by Emily Woo Zeller, who also narrated another self-help-for-messy-people book in my library, and I was sold. Zeller has an engaging voice, and I really enjoy her readings.
But the ultimate test of a self-help book is whether or not it initiated any change in attitude or behavior. And this one did.
I actually cleaned stuff! I cleaned lots of stuff. I did like five loads of laundry, folded it, and the put it away! (I know you don't know me, but if you did, you would be flabbergasted)
Are you going to learn a magical secret that will make cleaning happen like magic? No. But when have you ever heard anything in a self-help book that you didn't already know?
What you will get is a friendly slap on the back of the head that WILL help you start dealing with your clutter and mess in a positive, healthy way, and if you're looking for a book on how to clean your house, that's what you really need, isn't it?
I highly recommend listening to this audio book while you clean. It kept me engaged and giggling through what would have otherwise been a horrible process.
