Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Ronni Eisenberg, author of the popular but slightly more intimidating Organize Yourself!, has deconstructed the potentially hair-raising projects of getting the house in order: organizing closet space, filing household documents (do you know for sure if junior needs a tetanus shot anytime soon?), finagling some counter space in the kitchen, and even keeping photo negatives from seeming to multiply like rabbits and threatening to overtake the living room. Eisenberg reveals how to trim daunting tasks (like clearing up the garage) into manageable chunks. If you're frazzled with worry about what sort of critters may be nesting in your attic or have gone 15,000 miles without an oil change or find yourself at the checkout of the grocery store grappling to find that Cheerios coupon that you know you stuffed in your wallet, only to find it two months later in the back of kitchen junk drawer, sadly expired, this book's for you.

From Booklist

This short, factual, well-organized how-to proffers seemingly countless suggestions for organizing home work areas and even includes a five-step plan for closets. You can sharpen time-management skills via Eisenberg and Kelly's proposed list-making techniques, preplanning methodologies, and realistic memento-hoarding rules. Their ideas for organizing mail handling, preparing meals, and coping with spur-of-the-moment guests are good, too, and many readers will appreciate their references to computer software aids, their financial tips, and their advice for remembering special occasions.

This book offers advice on uncluttering your home but it it simplistic and focuses on superficial "uncluttering" rather than long-term solutions. I have been reading Cheryl Mendelson's "Home Comforts" which is fabulous. I thought this book might have something to add but it doesn't. Save your money.

After reading Don Aslett's anti-clutter book, "Not for Packrats Only," I thought this book might help in organizing the items I didn't throw away. However, this book advocates overorganization that creates even more clutter!
Many of the ideas presented in this book are just ridiculous: (1) developing a system to organize artwork that you no longer use (rather than donating or selling it), (2) making double or triple copies of unnecessary items, like 3 copies of your photo negatives in addition to the photos (3) own 2 irons (in case one goes on the blink), (4) make a chart of the grocery's layout along with a list of which items are on which aisles--as if the store does not have labeled aisles!--and (5) make a list of all your bank account numbers and your family's social security numbers to keep with you--a safety nightmare!!!
I read this book completely, hoping for just one redeeming tidbit, but I was left completely frustrated. Buying this book was a complete waste of money, and I did not even feel comfortable donating this book to Goodwill. I quickly threw it in the garbage....

Highly recommend this book! As someone who never has time between work and family to keep track of where things are in my house or get the necessary things done around the house, this book helped me to start tackling the chaos. The routines really are simple, the approach is clear. As our home came together in a less frenetic way, our family life has improved too. This book is a really great help!

This book was super over simplified. I hated the fact that the author gives advice like, " Find boxes to organize things in your basement or attic." Duh?!...I have not problem storing crap in boxes as it gets it out of my way...but stuff is still disorganized. Or advice like, " Buy a filing cabinet to store loose papers." Really? I guess I need a book with more specif ideas and details.
