The joy of leaving your sh*t all over the place by Jennifer Mccartney

Posted by Lesley Sackett Winfield


I laughed out loud over and over again. I even stopped to reread sections, and I tormented anyone I could find by reading whole sections aloud to them. McCartney was amazing in this book. I absolutely adore this book! I will warn you, however, you have to be okay with the F word.

This book is a tongue-in-cheek look at self help, minimalism, and society. It's an Anti-self help book! The anti-clutter movement is having a moment. You may have heard about a book—an entire book—written on the topic of tidiness and how “magical” and “life-changing” it is to neaten up and THROW AWAY YOUR BELONGINGS. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s time to fight that ridiculousness and start buying even more stuff and leaving it any place you want. Guess what, neatniks? Science shows that messy people are more creative.

Basically, being a slob is an art, and there’s a fine line between being a consumer and being a hoarder. Don’t cross that line. This book shows you how to clutter mindfully and with great joy. The results are mind-blowing. Your plants will stop dying. Your whiskey bottle will never run dry. Your drugstore points will finally add up to a free jar of salsa and some nice shampoo. You’ll go shopping and discover you’ve lost weight...
