Part 2 of 2: Clutter Busting 101: The steps to getting rid of clutter

By  | 

What are a few key questions to ask that will help you determine whether you keep something or give it away? Brooks offers the process he uses when he works with clutter busting his client’s homes.

Show Highlights: 

  • Back to Part 1: Clutter busting through objects that relate to a divorce, death, or painful memory: Did you realize that your clutter is likely making you feel tired, sluggish and stagnant?  What do you do when you have an item you are not thrilled with, but that your grandma or loved one gave you or you inherited? What do you do with items that remind your of your x-boyfriend, husband or friend?

About Our Guest: 

Brooks Palmer created Clutter Busting to help people let go of things in their life that no longer serve them.

In his ten years of Clutter Busting in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City, Brooks has learned first-hand about the intense emotional connection most people have with material possessions, and has consistently found that his way of working with clients allows them to see and let go of internal and external clutter without delving into the psychological reasons behind the clutter. Since 2000, Brooks has been using compassion, awareness, and humor to help thousands of clients rid their lives of clutter and develop habits to keep them clutter free.

As a result, thousands of people have gained space in their homes, offices, and lives.

Brooks and his work have since been featured in articles in the Chicago TribuneTime Out Chicago and the Los Angeles Business Journal, on the television shows Chicagoing with Bill Campbell, Living Live and the CBS Channel 2 Nightly News, and on numerous radio shows including The Aware Show and Bruce Barber’s NPR show, Real Life Survival Guide.

He speaks regularly to diverse groups around the country, including: businesses, health expos, senior citizens groups & yoga centers. To schedule a talk about Clutter Busting for your work, church, school, or community group, contact Brooks. Brooks also enjoys writing cartoons, drawing pastel paintings, and performing comedy at live venues (  Brooks is the author of Clutterbusting, Letting Go of What’s Holding You Back (New World Library, 2009), and Clutter Busting Your Life: Clearing Physical and Emotional Clutter to Reconnect with Yourself and Others (New World Library, 2012).
