You really should browse the pages, you can get a general idea of the book this way. I am only on page 87 of the book, and I have just decluttered and organized my entire kitchen from the one sitting of reading the book! I had so much stuff that I never used taking up valuable space, it was unreal the massive amounts of dishes, unused food in the pantry, etc.
I even decluttered the china cabinet in my dining room today, to make use for the items that I do use regularly, now I have more open space in my kitchen.
I have bought so many books on organizing and cleaning, to many to even count if I still had them all! I tried them, and had a pretty good feeling at first with most of them, less so with most though. Not with this gem! Organizing Solutiions has only ideas & solutions that will work for me, an enormous ADDer! I can't believe the huge relief of finally getting my hands on the RIGHT ONE, (organizing material).
I have a ton of ideas to put to use in my bedroom, my bathroom and even my kids rooms, & I haven't even gotten to the kid's rooms section yet.
If you truely suffer with keeping your home clean and organized due to your ADD, you have got to get this manual! Even the layout is ADD friendly. And the pages are made of a nice thick quality paper that has a sheen to it.
You will not be sorry if you get this book, you will sadly still keep seaching however if you do not :(
I absolutely love, love, love this book. I am excited about cleaning, that is unheard of, lol!
Good luck on your journey.... off to finish the book....
This book was a REVELATION. Cuts through the attractive but unrealistic organizing of Martha Stewart/Real Simple types (no offense) and gives REAL suggestions that work for ADD people and their families. The book is broken down into easy to manage sections, with great examples and photos. This book has changed my approach to managing my ADD and it really, really works. Thank you, Mrs. Pinsky.
Instead, read 4 Weeks to an Organized Life with AD/HD by Jeffery Freed. Written by an educator with ADD and a psychiatrist who specializes in the condition, it will help you train your brain to remember what you want it to, help you learn to focus and help you to organize yourself. It won't tell you how to set up your closet, but that is where Pinsky's book might come in handy. At this point I would also get either The Clutter Diet: The Skinny on Organizing Your Home and Taking Control of Your Life. They teach you how to set up your own system that is customized to what you do, and to organize your home in a way that works for you.Read more ›
This book is so skillfully arranged, you can find the chapter on a particular area of the house quickly, and the second you find the page, the solution is right there on a sticky note for you.
Susan is all over the house with solutions for your cluttered dining table, kitchen garbage, family calendar, spice rack, and sock drawer, to name just a few, and with every step she's recommending what she calls he Brutal Purge. Too much 'stuff' is the enemy of all family members, not just those of us who do most of the cleaning, and the Brutal Purge is our ticket to freedom.
Maybe you'll skip the part about children's bedrooms if you don't have children, but you'll linger over several good solutions for something we all have ... paper clutter ... bills, magazines, recipes, invitations, to-do lists, etc., and you'll love the implementation of 'staging areas', and the concept that you don't have to feel guilty about getting rid of things.
