Jennifer Howard: Clutter: An Untidy History The Hedgehog and the Fox

    • Education

In this episode, we delve deep into clutter with Jennifer Howard, author of a recent book entitled Clutter: An Untidy History.
This book is for you if you have a closet that will no longer close because it is so crammed with clothes, or a garage piled with boxes you keep meaning to sort, or a storage unit that you pay for every month without having an exit strategy. Maybe it’s especially for you if you have an older relative with a house piled high with belongings that you know they will never get rid of and you have a growing sense of dread that one day you are going to have to roll your sleeves up and tackle it... Jennifer talks about her own experience of clearing her mother's house and, more broadly, why we seem to have an increasingly vexed relationship with our (many) possessions.
