The Book

dcjsmcoverimageKaye Harper has had it–utterly fed up with the constant junk that clutters her life. So, armed with a stack of books that each guarantees to teach her the secret of living a clutter-free existence, Kaye embarks on a journey that takes her from clutter bug to clutter free–and beyond.

Her family doesn’t know what to think of her and her new fixation. While Jacob does enjoy the streamlined beauty of his new life, he is also just as frustrated as their sons as Kaye goes from clean up to clear out–including treasured possessions.

Who knew that what started out as a survival technique would become an addiction?

As a speaker at the Christian Women’s Retreat in New Cheltenham, Kaye shares the lessons she’s learned on her journey to a clutter-free life.

While her husband and children watch in fascinated horror, Kaye is determined to rid their life of excess and embrace a less complicated and more orderly existence—all without losing her mind.

But their cat, Purrlock, does his part to ensure her chances at an insanity plea.

Confessions of a De-cluttering Junkie began as a seven-episode serial novel.

    I love these episodes. I can relate to Kaye, because I am a de-cluttering junkie as well! ( Well, not as bad as her but…..) One thing I don’t have is a pesky cat. You said that it began as a 7 episode book. Are there going to be more episodes? Can’t wait!

      The rest of Kaye’s story will show up here now and then as it happens (as I learn fun stuff to torture her with is more like it).

      YEs, I did consider getting a cat for inspiration. Then I woke up from the nightmare. I think I have finally recuperated. I can type the word caadttatt without my fingers getting shaky. Usually.

    I so enjoyed reading about Kaye- she has more patience than I would have with that darn cat though!!!

    I go through great spurts of decluttering, my husband is dismayed, he often says that if he stands in one place too long he’ll be donated as well.

    What I don’t understand though is why my house is still overrun and there is stuff everywhere… some might cruelly suggest that I’d rather throw something out than put it away…

    Love your work !

    Just finished the book and I’m inspired, since I stared reading, I’ve begun to weed thru things. My husband doesn’t understand what I’m doing but if it makes the house look better, he is all for it!

    Now if you could help me declutter my quilting room, I might think Kaye the supreme declutter genius!

    Thanks for the book!
