"I loved working with you on clearing up my to-do list and project lists! Thank you for helping me become aware of my energy and emotions, to allow me to let go of old projects and requests that no longer serve me. Now I have more clarity and energy for the things I really want to work on!"
Despite the wonderful advice about clearing your life in Clutter Busting, I shall not let go of this book. And no, you may not borrow my copy. Buy your own. You will be pleased.

Brooks' Clutter Busting sessions have been life changing because they've given me practice and confidence in the innate human ability to discern. I have been able to let go of so many things, including activities, that upon gentle, honest examination, were no longer serving me. I am grateful and amazed at the changes, and my family and friends have noticed how much I have benefited from this work (which is less like work and more like release/discovery/play/relief)
. Brooks is kind and honest -- he meets each person and each situation with a kind, respectful openness. I highly recommend Brooks Palmer's books and services.
I have been learning a lot since we clutter busted. Every one thing I pick up has been handled by me one, or two or three times already. I am really seeing how important it is to be mindful of what I do with things the first time I touch them. Today I will be particularly mindful of that with everything I pick up to clutter bust. I decide what to do now. I make a choice. Most importantly, I can make better decisions when something comes in the door. I can make better decisions when I use those things.
Brooks is hands-down the best expert in the clutter busting field and helping others move through their attachments. In addition to his books, he offers consultative sessions to help others remove their clutter and open new worlds of potential. Not only is his writing approachable and actionable, but his sessions are on point, helpful, intuitive and healing. He is an effective listener and knows the right questions to ask to get to the heart of the matter. I feel very grateful to have found his books and to know him as a person. I highly recommend Brooks for anyone who is serious about simplifying their life and expanding it to a whole new level.
I highly recommend Brooks Palmer's Clutter Busting book. Brooks is really onto the emotional attachments we have with our possessions and explains how to release oneself from the guilt and pain of keeping items we don't need or want in our lives.
Hoarding Disorder Researcher
For anyone considering a clutter busting session with Brooks I would like to say: just do it, you will not regret it. He has a very kind and gentle personality and is never judgmental, yet he has an amazing way of making you realize what you can let go of in your home. Also, he helps you hear and trust your own inner voice and only keep what is valuable to you, so that you can stop keeping all the things you think you “should” hang on to.
I have twice had the occasion to hire Brooks for business projects, and was equally pleased both times with the remarkable results. During our first engagement, Brooks helped me reclaim a productive workspace in an overflowing cubicle. I walked away from the experience with new processes, a clean desk, and renewed levels of respect from my colleagues. Based on that transformative experience, I later asked Brooks to help my husband to ‘let go’ of what was weighing him down in his home office – a space that housed boxes and bins full of computer equipment, childhood memorabilia and more. Afterward, my husband had far more than a different office – he had a different outlook on how to honor memories from the past, how to respect himself through his interaction with the environment, and how to comfortably navigate the sometimes emotional decisions related to the ‘stuff’ of life.'
Marketing and Management Consultant
I needed to declutter an office area in preparation for a renovation. I hired Brooks and was amazed at what a difference he made in guiding me through the process versus me trying to get it done on my own. It was fast, easy, and quite energizing! Brooks has a calm and gentle approach to helping you go through your stuff while asking questions about whether to keep, give away, or throw away an item. I was so impressed with his work and how it helped me, that I referred him to several other people. I have since worked with Brooks several other times and continue to be impressed with his ability to help cut through the clutter and completely transform a space. I highly recommend Brooks Palmer and his Clutter Busting services. Everyone has a space that needs some decluttering - if you have been putting it off, now is the time to call Brooks! You will absolutely be glad you did.
Clutter Busting Testimonial by Delilah Andre
Ever since I met with Brooks, I have a new awareness of my environment and I look deeply into WHY I am holding on to things I don’t need. I never knew how much ‘clutter’ stopped me in my life until I got Clutter Busted. I will do it regularly for the rest of my life.
We accomplished more in a two-hour phone session than I had done during several previous solo attempts. I highly recommend working with Brooks, whose gentle but persistent style of questioning helped me acknowledge my instincts to let go.
Just hearing you talk to me over Skype, and walk me through the necessary motions, helped to "break the ice" of frozen, immobility that was getting thicker and thicker around me “ these past years.
I have spent literally thousands of dollars and many hundreds of hours working with professional organizers over the years when all I needed was one hour on the phone with you!
