Clutter: An Untidy History

  • Author: Jennifer Howard
  • ISBN: 9781948742726
  • Format: paper

Clutter is a history of cluttered houses spawned by the author’s experience cleaning out her mother’s house. It goes through the beginnings of a societal attachment to stuff, present-day obsession with decluttering and organization, and the environmental impacts of constant consumption. It was pretty good, but I found it somewhat repetitive and not as engaging as I had hoped.
