book review – clear your clutter with feng shui

June 16, 2008

in clear your clutter with feng shui by karen kingston takes a very spiritual approach to the topic of clearing clutter.  and while i consider this a spiritual journey as well, her spirituality proves to be much more mystical and new age than i was comfortable with at times.  she is obviously a strong proponent of feng shui authoring several books of the same nature and speaks often to the energy that is created from clear and sacred spaces in the correct corners of your home based on the feng shui bagua.

while i disagree with many of her spiritual assumptions, i did find this book to be very helpful as we continue through the early stages of our journey.  karen includes some fantastic commentary on “how clutter affects you” and “why people collect clutter.”  in the second section of her book, she identifies common types of clutter in our homes: collections, paper clutter, a/v clutter, miscellaneous clutter, etc. and offers practical advice on what to keep and what to discard.

all in all, reading past the new age spirituality was not difficult and the practical nature of her expertise has been helpful and motivating.  whether it is the best book available on the subject, i’ll let you know.  but my early guess is no.  i’ll give it 3 clutter-free spaces out of 5.
