Drawing on the success of her first book, Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui, Karen Kingston has met popular demand by expanding on the indispensable activity of clearing clutter. There is very little of actual Feng Shui here, and certainly nothing you can't get elsewhere, but the clutter problem gets full and complete treatment. Kingston reminds us that clutter is stuck energy that keeps you stuck in undesirable life patterns. Therefore, you can "sort out your life by sorting out your junk." Kingston covers the reasons we keep things as well as the amazing stories of people who have cleared their clutter away. More than just junk, clutter is all those things that have negative symbology and that collect stagnant energy. This latter can also apply to bodily, emotional, and spiritual clutter, all of which Kingston describes with characteristic passion. In an age of accumulation, it's good to see a book that frees up life again.
"A great book and long overdue. I have read it twice in a week. . . . Thanks, Karen Kingston, for helping me to simplify my life in a joyful way."
--Louise L. Hay, author of Empowering Women and You Can Heal Your Life
"Elevates cleaning clutter from a mundane task to an experience of the sublime."
--Michelle Passoff, author of Lighten Up! Free Yourself From Clutter

I would recommend this book as a quick motivational pick-me-up in anti-accumulation. I have referred back to it now and then to remind myself to go thru my closets every season. As for Feng Shui, I would recommend books by Lillian Too, or the book mentioned by the previous reviewer, by Terah Kathryn Collins.
The chapter on internal clutter is laughable, and somewhat brings into question her sanity and credibility. Had it not been for her unsupported claims, I would have felt comfortable giving her at least 3 stars, unfortunately, this is not so.
Overall, this is an "OK" book for clutter clearing, but don't buy this if you are looking for feng shui, it simply is not in here much.
I would skip the chapter on clutter clearing your body, too much "quack" ideas with no nitty gritty scientific evidence. I believe there is another review here which specifically sites research which has been done to disprove the entire "bowel-cleansing" segment. Sure, fiber is good for you, but let's just leave it at that!
Overall this is a quick read. It gives many reasons to stop the pack-rat mentality, clear the clutter, and open up to new positive energy that awaits.
A great clutter book I would recommend is by Sandra Fulton. She's written many in this genre. The two I would recommend are "The Messie Motivator" and "The Messies Manual". Sandra goes into detail regarding a system for cleaning (in "The Messie Motivator") which was helpful. She also goes into more details of the psyche behind the typical clutter collector, I think many "messies" will relate.
So although Karen Kingston's book provides motivation to clear it up, there are far better books available for both Feng Shui and clutter clearing.
Seriously, she hits on every very good reason (and some harsh realities) for getting the clutter out from underfoot. The Feng Shui approach simply makes it that much simpler, and less overwhelming. (It's especially powerful in combination with "Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life," by K. R. Carter.)
This is one of the most motivating book I've ever read about clutter, and in just one week, it's made a h-u-g-e difference in my life. Highly recommended if you've been trying to get control of clutter for years.
