Laura's book was full of wonderful yet simple to implement ideas. I love how she broke the book down into short chapters focusing on different areas to tackle. This made the book easy to read, and makes you able to really focus on getting organized one step at a time, and starting in the area of your life that you are needing to. She has creative ideas that can work for anyone. I especially love her ideas on how to organize on a tiny budget, or no budget at all! I am a stay at home mom of 3 young children, and love how Laura's ideas on how to keep a household running smoothly and effectively. She's not telling you to have a perfectly clean and organized home, but how to make your life simpler and more enjoyable with your family. Can't wait for her to write another book!

I am on an organizational kick lately and have purchased quite a few books - this was not one of my favorites - it is one I honestly could have done without as I did not learn anything new. I highly recommend "Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living" instead.

This pint-sized book packs a powerful punch when it comes to dejunking, organizing, and otherwise battling clutter. Also known as The Organizing Junkie, Laura Wittmann, gives 101 quick and easy tips for simplifying your life and getting your act together. I'm all over that!

At first I was a little distracted by the one-idea-per-page design. This can squeeze a meaty idea into one page while a simpler idea has lots of room to roam. But, as I continued through Clutter Rehab, I realized that the compact design allows for easier portability and a lower price, two really important ways to get the organizing message across.

This book gives you all the basics you need to putting order into the chaos you call home. Laura's style is easy to read and the tips are practical and doable in just a few minutes or an afternoon.

Some of my favorite tricks from the book:

Create a donation station.
Purge clothing at the end of the season, not the beginning.
Utilize an "I'm outta here" shelf
This book is so easy to read and apply, there's really no excuse for not going into Clutter Rehab.

Clutter Rehab by Laura Wittmann is a motivational tool kit for your home and life. I like how the book is small and can fit into your purse easily. Laura stats the book off by telling you what clutter is and then gives you a PROCESS, for removing it. She then goes on to give 101 tips to help organize your home and life. The book is set up to where you can read these one a day or the whole book in a day, whatever fits your schedule. The book really motivated me to really take a look at the clutter in my house and life and to start doing something about it, which I think is what Laura's purpose in writing the book was all about. One tip I plan to use from the book is to keep a bag for garbage in my car and get into the habit of emptying it when you gas the car. This book was an answer to my prayers when it comes to the stress in my life.

"Less chaos and confusion results in more time for the things that really matter". Love this exert from Laura Wittmann's book. We have three small children and our house can be total chaos at times. This book gave some great tips for families that need to make the most of their time. She really understands that a more organized life can provide much more time to do the fun things with your family. Even the book is arranged in a simple, yet informative layout. As a busy mom, I could read a couple of tips a day and not feel overwhelmed or lost when I began to read again. The book is motivating, but also reminds the readers to pace themselves with the organizational process. I think this would be a great read for some beginning organizers or experienced organizers that need a little inspiration.

I love that line from the book "Organizing is an ongoing process and not a destination." Laura Wittmann is not trying to sell some magical quick fix to your organization challenges. She gives you simple steps to take to get your home and life organized and helps motivate you to keep it that way. I'm working my way through the book one tip at a time and really enjoying the results of my work. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to get out from under all the clutter in their life.

This book is great! The compact size makes it easy to carry around. The organizing tips are really useful.

We've all felt overwhelmed with big messes at one time or another. This book provides really easy to implement tips. Many of the tips can be completed in just a few minutes. It would be fun to see how many tips you could complete in just 15 or 30 minutes. I also like how she doesn't suggest that you need to buy any expensive organizing doo-dads; most people probably have what they need at home. Sometimes you just need a better system, or to sort things in a better way.

I really like tip #84: Tackle small tasks to get big results. She's right: Organizing doesn't have to take up an entire day or an entire weekend; just organizing one small section of your home per day can help. I had to smile when I saw tip #100: Organize while watching TV. There are SO many commercials during TV shows, I will often do quick cleaning or organizing tasks during that time. I thought I was the only one who did that!

Fun, easy to read book with great organizing tips!

My wife actually bought the book for herself and I ended up reading it as well. To be honest I am not an organizing junkie but after reading this book I was motivated to take on the impossible, my garage and basement! It's amazing how much stuff I has storing in these places but after following the tips in this book I was a purging machine and wow does it feel great! It turns out I was in need of Clutter Rehab, thank you Laura! And now I find myself looking for my next organizing fix.

Laura Wittmann gave me some really easy, useable tips for organizing. I usually get overwhelmed with my clutter by thinking I need to have the perfect system to get going. "If only I had this..." or "If I just had one more closet..." Well, this book said all I needed to know in one or two paragraphs on each of the 101 Tips. I love the PROCESS steps. I appreciate the simple suggestions. I love the examples and pictures. The book is great, and as one reviewer suggested, I'm going to leave it out on the counter for my family to read!

My first impression of this book was that seemed fun. I love the bright, colorful pictures and the "clean" layout. As I started reading it, I realized it is so much more than that.

Practically speaking, this is a handy little book. The small size of it makes it easy to have with you, so you can read a page or two in a quiet moment. You could also take it one tip at a time and make progress in your home organization.

However, not all the tips in the book are "go do it" applications. Some of the tips address our behaviors that helped us make our messes to begin with. I appreciate that the author addresses the fact that our homes and the condition they are in effect us and our emotions.

I also like that the author isn't recommending buying the most expensive, elaborate shelving system. Her tips are practical, easily accessible and inexpensive. All in all, this is a very helpful book. Now, I'm off to create my own "donation station".
