Get Rid of the Guilt

Oh friend, I get it, I really do.

You’re not just overwhelmed by the physical clutter that has been filling up your home, but stressed out by an overbooked schedule that sometimes feels out of your control. You’re frustrated by trying to live up to other people’s expectations of what your home is supposed to be. You’re tired of guilt and exhausted by relationships that seem to suck the life out of you.

And the last thing you want is a book that will make you feel worse about yourself, or hand you another massive list of things to do.

Believe me, I have been there too.

I’m NOT an expert on decluttering or a professional organizer. I don’t have some crazy unattainable ideal of what our homes should be, or what our schedules should look like. I’m a mom, wife, daughter, friend, and business owner who is busy trying to juggle all the pieces of an often chaotic life.

And Unstuffed was not written to make anyone feel guilty about a home that is less than perfect. Instead, it offers a strong dose of encouragement through personal stories and simple but practical ideas for taking back your life from the stuff that is weighing you down.

It offers permission to NOT do it all, and much-needed relief from the constant pressure to perform. It’s room for your soul to breathe, and my hope for this book is that it will set you free—free from guilt, free from overwhelm, and free from the expectations of a world consumed by STUFF.

xoxo, Ruth

    “We live in a world that’s constantly telling us we need to do more, have more, and be more.  It’s exhausting and consistently the only thing we ever have more of is stress.  Ruth Soukup is like a breath of fresh air as she calls us to declutter our lives and embrace simplicity.  If you find yourself feeling tired, stressed or overwhelmed, then let the words found in the pages of this book wash over you and take a deep breath.  It’s the literary equivalent of a bubble bath and a hot cup of coffee on a cold morning.”
