The layout of this book is excellent with bulleted lists that make it easy to take in the information. It is not a book that overanalyzes organizing...it simply lists what you need to do to get organized in each area of your life.

I have to admit that the cover of this book played a part in my purchase and the inside of the book is just as pretty with preppy, perky, springtime colors. It is a hard cover book with hidden spiral binding which allows the book to stay open at the page being read.

Great organizing book for those who just want to get it done!

Organize Now! is a nifty well-organized book! Although I vowed not to buy any more organizing books, I was still searching for the magic one that would finally help me organized and stay organized, so I bought it. No regrets! It's been very helpful. Also has space to write you own note. I really like this book!! 5 stars for this one!

This book is organized with 52 chapters, and the idea that you could read and implement one chapter per week, and be completely organized within a year.

I felt that there were some problems with the order of the chapters. I would have liked to jump into this book and felt like I'd accomplished a tangible difference in some area of my home. But the earliest chapters in the book are about organizing your mind - with suggestions like making lists of life goals, starting a journal, buying a datebook, etc. I think that I would have accomplished more if I'd selected some chapter out of the middle of the book - like "Organize Your Linen Closet", or something along those lines, and started with that first. That would have been better for getting some momentum going.

The book focuses on organizing financial papers, photographs, recipes, music, mail, and other paperwork and small collections of items long before it gets to the big, messy spaces. I found this counter-intuitive. I would rather organized the garage, kitchen, etc. before I got too wrapped up in things that take up a more limited amount of space and are really just filing projects.

The book doesn't get to "Organize for Emergencies" until chapter 51 - though the book stresses that this is the most important thing you can do. I'd suggest skipping to this chapter early on, as it's a fairly easy one but very critical.
Most of the last 8 or 10 chapters are "special occasion" chapters, like "Organizing Your Pregnancy" and "Organize Your Holiday". It's a little depressing that the book ends with Chapter 52, "Organizing After a Loss".

Because each chapter is formatted like a 3 or 4 page checklist, the chapters tend to be a little repetitive.

I am chronically disorganized. I have purchased an read the *best* organizing books out there and while the ideas in them are great, my problem was implementation! I would look at a mess and think to myself, I don't even know where to start. So then I wouldn't start at all or I would get discouraged at a lack of progress.

This book is broken down week by week in discrete subparts, such as organize your email or organize your car. You can start at any point (I started on week 17, organize your car) and it goes through step by step, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO! You can check the items off one by one and there is a place to list additional items that are pertinent to you. There is then a list of items on HOW to stay organized for that particular area. Many of them I have put on the calendar to keep me in line, others are just habits that needed to be formed. Often there were items I hadn't even thought about.

By breaking it down into smaller parts, and adding a checklist, it is much easier to tackle items and see progress. The car only took a couple of hours and then I was able to do another project. Seeing progress is very motivating!

There are additional weeks provided that probably don't apply to everyone (organize a move, organize a new baby) but that very well could come in handy.

This is a book I will certainly use, all the others are going off to the used book store!

I love this book so much, I had one sent to my sister, too!
Who doesn't need a little help getting control their space? This book has a great layout of one-week-at-a-time organizing goals. You can pick any week to get started; there's no need to go 'in order', pardon any pun. I especially love the check-off lists so one has a feeling of accomplishment right away. For my sister and I, who, collectively, are University students going for Ph.D. and M.A., respectively; have two boys in college and one in kindergarten; work a combination of 4 jobs; plus all that goes with life and family, this book is a pleasant guide to staying prepared and staying sane. Thanks!

Organize Now! makes organizing simple and fun. It is set up as a week-by-week guide, which makes it so practical and easy to follow.

And the best part? It makes organizing not-so-daunting. The book is there to help. Not add to the chaos.

Organize Now! also helped me organize so many aspects of my life.

My Papers. My High-Traffic Areas (living room, kitchen counters, pantry, refrigerator, bathroom, dining room...). My Personal Spaces. My Storage Areas. My Special Events (parties, trips, etc).

Jennifer Ford Berry helped bring me through all the different areas in my home. But each area has its own week, so I wasn't wrestling with organizing the living room, and then running to the kitchen, and then to the laundry room, and then... well, running out of gas.

Organize Now! makes everything manageable.
