Présentation de l'éditeur
Now, in It's All Too Much, he challenges you to answer a very simple but scary question: Does the stuff you own contribute to the life you want to live or does it get in the way of your vision of a happy life? Peter shows you how to assess the state of your home and then with simple techniques and a very clear plan he shows you how to go room by room to identify priorities and part with the things that are weighing you down. From the 'holding onto the past' clutter - your grandmother's china or your first report card to the 'living in the future' clutter - that £100 dress you may fit into again or the untouched fondue set you got as a wedding gift.
Filled with real-life examples and hands-on advice for homes and lives of all sizes, Peter helps you understand the purpose and place for everything in your home and gives you the freedom to let go and move on. The result is freed-up space and more energy for living a happier, richer life. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

I have the proverbial "guest bedroom". I make it so comfortable and clean for those over night guests that come, what, maybe 2 or 3 times a year? But this book gets you to ask yourself what the use you would truly need for each room in your home. Why dedicate an entire room for people who are rarely here 365days a year while other areas you live in are cramped and cluttered. I reevaluated all my rooms as this book directs you to. Such great advice!
For me, I decided my bedroom, which should only bring comfort and rest for you and your partner as this book tells you, shouldn't have the big ole treadmill in it, and the family room shouldn't have the big ugly desk cluttered with bills, magazines and paper work, so made the spare bedroom into the office and treadmill room! I added a comfy sofa bed to handle the rare over night company, but you could also just have a fold away.
In the kitchen I stripped of all the stuff you have to dig in to find what you really want to use like unused pots, pans, plastic, and cooking contraptions and ideas "As Seen on TV" items. Gone. And my family loves it. So clean and straight forward for use, not storage forever.
This was such a wonderful book and every page was filled with great advice!
This book really gets into the "whys" of clutter:
- Why we have it?
- Why it's a problem?
- Why we know it's a problem and don't do anything about it?
- Why it holds us back from the life we could have?
- Why we should strive to remove it from our lives?
If you've never thought deeply about your possessions and why you have them, you should probably read this book.
Anyone can teach you how to put paper in a file cabinet. This book goes beyond that, and I look forward to living it instead of just reading about it.
Peter doesn't address "stuff" like most books and organizers. Instead, he asks what your family wants in life, and if the stuff you have is doing that for you. More than likely if you're reading this book, it's not!
Have you ever looked in magazines, and now pinterest, wishing for that perfect room to be in your house, but feel discouraged before you even get started and quickly give up? Me too!
Peter teaches you to look at your "stuff" differently and helps you throw out whatever excuse, fear or uncertainty you have to get started. I believe most people who have a problem with stuff are not lazy. I'm not. I am a wife, mother, commuter, full-time employee and I have to clean my own house. There isn't room for lazy, but there is room for clutter and "stuff" in the corners of my life.
You may think sitting down and reading Peter's book is a waste of time and that you should be cleaning instead. Trust me, I believe the time you invest in the book and exercises will increase your chances for success. Like we all know and Peter emphasizes, it didn't get this way in a week, so it probably won't clean up in a week. Keep going, we are!
I love Peter Walsh on "Clean Sweep" and Oprah! I really took to heart the day he held up a stained, torn, crappy looking sewing basket and asked a lady if it accurately represented her Grandmother or her feelings for her Grandmother. The book is an expansion of what we have seen him do on TV.
This book wasn't life shattering, but reinforced some of what I have been feeling to be true over the last few years. Pointing out that sometimes we buy something with a purpose in mind, but it never seems to fulfill that purpose. To get rid of it feels like failure, wasting money; holding on to it feels like making it somehow worth the money spent. I am trying to make wiser purchases to avoid that feeling.
Family heirlooms deserve honor and respect. If they are covered in dust, at the bottom of piles, buried somewhere you don't even remember, are you treating them appropriately? What would it mean if they were never discovered again? If you keep them, take care of them. If they aren't worth the time to do that, it's time to give them up. What are you clinging to?
Clutter, dust, disorganization, guilt are weights on our body. They are a toll we pay daily.
You should love the rooms you live in.
I try to not fall into the Self-help book syndrome. But, I really like what Peter has to say, and will probably buy more by him. I definitely should re-read this book periodically to keep my rooms on track!
