Starr, owner of Let's Get Organized, a personal organization business, gives readers the tools to organize each room of their home in this user-friendly guide. Divided into such categories as bedroom, bathroom, storage and utility, the book uses a clean layout with helpful full-color photos and convenient tab dividers. Each section begins with a list of questions (e.g., "Are piles of bills, lists, and mail kept in several locations scattered about the house?") and are answered by a series of solutions (e.g. "Dedicate a work surface"; "the importance of having a comfortable chair cannot be overstated"). Throughout, Starr poses potential problems and tips to solve them, as well as various projects to help create order. In the chapter on bedrooms, for instance, she instructs on "Cleaning Your Drawers": "Empty the contents of your drawers and put everything on the bed. For each item, ask yourself: Does it fit? Will I really wear it again? Is it in style? Is it in good condition?" In all, this is a simple, encouraging guide for reining in the chaos.
