I bought this book as a sort of gag for a friend who keeps claiming that he wants to get organized. On the way home I started flipping through it and ended up keeping it for myself. It came along just in the nick of time for my move to a new home. All my life I have been a clutter queen; now I can actually part with things I don't need and showcase the things I really like. My home and work environments are much more functional and enjoyable places to be. It's been several months since I picked the book up and I'm impressed by how much it helped me develop the skills to stick to my promise to get my act together!

My family raised me in an insanely messy environment. My father is likely one of the worst packrats alive, and my mother continuously hides her junk in countless bags. A few years ago I realized my own extreme clutter was a reflection of the disarray in my mind and, cyclically, reason for even further confusion. Perhaps this book isn't for those who already know where cleaning supplies are kept and how planners are used efficiently. But I highly recommend this book if you've not been blessed enough to have learned the aforementioned time-management skills other college students know as truisms (there is SOME reasoning behind the "for Dummies" title!). For beginners, this book will lead you section by section to a home as well as a life that finally has everything in place!

If you get the sample you might get almost the same book. Thought this mini version would be a condensed version of the entire book. It is the first three chapters only, telling you how great it is going to be to be organized. There is a lot telling you to delegate at work or home, well I am retired and live only with my pets, what do I delegate to them?

I found this book wonderfully rewarding to read through, anywhere at anytime. I brought it with me when I traveled and I learned several great ideas: my favorite is "group like with like". That single idea cracked my shell and has helped me organize my entire pack-rat house, as well as my parent's basement. Every room in the house is detailed, and the mnemonics (memory devices) are useful as well, such as P-L-A-C-E (Purge, Like with Like, Access, Contain, Evaluate). Very well written, and organized! The time management section were very useful as well, such as travelling tips. The "Part of Tens" section at the end was very interesting as well, but I won't give away any secrets!

This book changed the way I organize my things to such an extent. Now I come home to an orderly apartment (which is important when you live in a place the size of a postage stamp.) If you want to get organized and feel better about your surroundings, this is the place to start.

The principles of organization are very well presented here. Not too many anecdotes, but enough to get the point across. Also, this book lists the basic principles of home organization in an easy-to-read and easy-to-reference manner. A very practical how-to book!

I used this book when I was trying to get my new house organized. It had helpful ideas for each room in the house. It was a long book...but was easy to read. You can also jump from chapter to chapter depending upon your current needs.

Format: Paperback
There's no actual tips or anything on how to organize in this book. A few times she'll say something that's a good point, but other than that, she doesn't really explain how to organize. She explains again and again how people are unorganized, but never explores how to actually organize. This isn't a self-help book, this is just a rant about how unorganized and sloppy everyone else is except her. She goes on and on about her great routine and helpful skills and easy steps - and what are they? I don't know, she never tells.
