If you need to simplify how you handle your finances and paperwork, this is

the book for you.

Even if you are organized in this area, this book will motivate you to

simplify even more. It did for me.

As a Professional Organizer, one of the biggest downfalls I see to any money

management system is making it overcomplicated--e.g., waiting to organize

your finances because first you need to learn the computer program you plan

to use.

Next, is the indecision most people face when they are trying to get

organized. This is commonly seen in how to name files and how to store files

(covered simply in the book!).

Stanley provides practical, to the point direction in how to decide what is

just right for you, so that your systems will actually support you and not

work against you by being overcomplicated.

This book takes you through the decision making processes involved in

setting up the systems you'll need.

This is the first book on organizing finances that I have seen that is as

interested in you the person, as a seasoned Professional Organizer would be.

She makes it so easy to decide what you need to do next, based on you. It

was as close to having a live Professional Organizer there with me while I

was reading.

Be sure to check out the cool icons that guide you to quick tips and hints,

such as "Clever Client" and "Organized Enough" (hooray that an organizing

book is finally addressing the concept of not over-organizing).

If you've ever felt like you were the only person in the world who is afraid to go near that giant pile of bills, receipts and other financial paperwork, this book can help you. Of course, even if you already have a plan in place, you might find this book helpful too. I thought I had a pretty good system, but a friend recommended that I give this book a look-see and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised.

Have you ever seen that show on TV where the organizer comes in and takes everything out of the room? He teaches the person how to examine and organize their stuff, then shows them their newly-organized space, all ready for them to maintain on their own. A place for everything, and everything in its place, as the old saying goes. Well, this book is exactly like that. It shakes up your thinking and helps you realize what you could be doing better and easier.

Even if you have files and never lose a receipt, it's not always easy to see where your money goes every month. This book covers, from beginning to end, all aspects of the process and does it in plain language and in a friendly way. It doesn't take long to read and is easy to flip through for guidance on different topics. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who shops, saves, counts...well, you understand. I'm a convert and this book is a real helper.

This book is great! I would have never guessed that a book on organizing finances would be fun to read, but this one is! It is easy to follow and is presented in a way that makes it quite simple to customize your own systems. In addition to all the wonderful financial advice (some which I did not even realize that I needed to know!), there is plenty of advice on organizing other area's of your life. For example, dealing with non-financial paper and clutter like magazine articles and catalogs. My favorite is the "room-by-room" files. They work awesome!

Every young person or couple just starting out should have this book! I'll be giving it for bridal shower gifts from now on!

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent guide that offers practical solutions to get your finances organized and keep them that way. Debbie Stanley's shining personality stands by the reader throughout the entire book as she offers a myriad of solutions to today's financial challenges. Her focus is on creating an organized, efficient financial system that works for you rather than you working for your system. The author emphasizes that even financial items need homes in order to manage financial clutter. Debbie offers recommendations for setting up financial files, automatic bill payment, financial software, daily mail, paper flow systems, and yes, even shopping excursions! The concept of being "organized enough" is stressed throughout as a pleasant reminder to keep it simple. This book is loaded with helpful tips, visuals and resources to help you save money, time, and frustration by creating a customized, efficient personal finance system. It's a "must have" book if you are ready to organize your personal finances and keep them that way!

Format: Paperback
Because the books contains consise "To-Do lists" as well as flagged reminders of key organizing principles, it is easy to take the information from the book and apply it to each reader's own situation. Working as a professional organizer, I was able to utilize the information from the book to help my clients become less overwhelmed with all of their papers and stick to an organized bill paying system that works for them.
