A little info: I'm a pretty organized person. I have good habits about de-cluttering, putting things back when I'm done w/ them, and my spaces almost always look the same (neat), because it's important to me. I would count keeping a clean & organized home as my no. 4 priority, behind taking care of my health, my family/friends & taking care of my finances. So the home is very meaningful to me, and I'm willing to allot a good deal of my income & time to it. I realize that is not everyone's position, and I don't judge you if it isn't. I'm a renter, but as a long-term, well-liked tenant, I have a good deal of "play" room with putting up nails, screws, shelves, etc. I know that not everyone has that luxury. I'm fairly on-track as far as daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly & yearly chores go, so I didn't buy this book at my wit's end with my home. I really wanted to just make what I DID keep around look nice, as well as give myself a little wiggle room for the additional purchases that will naturally come in a normal lifetime. I'm at a great advantage being, by choice, unmarried & child-free, and while I don't live alone, I'm essentially the one who calls the shots regarding decorating & housework. So I will acknowledge right up front that I may not seem to have the same mindset or lifestyle as the average person reading this review. I just want to discuss my take on the book, what worked, what didn't, and why I think it's indispensible. I know that the approach of this book, however, will not be to everyone's liking, so I'll try to explain why I think that is, as well.

I've read a lot of organizing/housework/simplifying books over the years (my review history here on Amazon proves that!) It's a bit of an obsession of mine. I've watched all the organizing shows on TV out there.

At my home everything is everywhere. This book has really allowed me to see what I was doing wrong. I keep highlighting where she says "Group like items." She talks about a family who had 50 nail clippers because they would always lose them, then buy another one. When they cleaned and organized everything they realized they had 50 nail clippers.

That is so me. I never know where I put anything. This book has showed me where I have been going wrong all my life. So many times you ask yourself when cleaning "where do I begin?" This book tackles organization room by room. Giving you step by step directions to get everything in order.

I like this book more than a lot of other books because it is short on all of that motivational mumbo jumbo. You get right to work with this book. I have already begun doing my daughters drawers. Before I could never understand why clothes could never fit in the drawer and were hanging out. I just figured I wasn't organized as I should be or something. Without even completing all of the steps I can see that all of our stuff will fit now. I haven't even considered purging any of our stuff yet and I am already getting nearly twice as much space in her drawers as before. I am really excited right now, I cannot wait to be able to get all of my "tools"(as she calls them) and complete some of these projects.

People should learn this when growing up. I wish my mother had taught me many of these tips and tricks. I will teach this to my daughter. The way we have been taught as kids is obviously not working anymore. We have much more stuff now.

Update:
I've also used this as a guide to organizing my disaster supplies.

This is a great book for someone who wants to be ultra-organized with an exact place, drawer, or container for every single thing. It is full of good ideas and lots of photos to inspire the messiest of people to unclutter their living spaces.

My only thought as I read it though, and this isn't really a negative, is that I suspect the author is a bit obsessive-compulsive in her organization. The book does take organization toward that extreme at times, in my opinion, which might not be realistic for some people. As an example, she suggests that after completely organizing a pantry with matching containers for the food, or any other cupboard or closet, that you take a photo of it to tape to the inside of the door so that everything always gets put away the exact same way. It's a nice idea but not one I personally see myself doing.

The chapter on folding various clothing and linens was helpful although I'm not sure I needed a step-by-step tutorial on how to fold a thong or a bra in the most efficient way. A fitted bed sheet, yes. The photos in the book were helpful and do inspire ideas, especially for those who like to organize things in compartments, plastic storage boxes, matching baskets, or drawer dividers. The author also includes good information on utilizing spaces, including closets and shelves, in the most efficient way no matter what size the living space. Not everyone has the luxury of a large walk-in closet or a closet just for linens, so the ideas are helpful for less than ideal situations.

Every room of the house is covered, including the attic, basement, and garage; and there is also a chapter on how to organize and store holiday items and mementos.
