3.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas, but could use a better layout, June 12, 2009
This review is from: Organize Now!: A Week-by-Week Guide to Simplify Your Space and Your Life (Spiral-bound)
Great idea to have a week-by-week plan, but didn't care for the layout.

Browse through it first--I found that many of the specific tasks on the list were either very basic (and didn't need to be written about in depth for every week), or didn't apply to that particular area, but YMMV. The section for notes was in a paragraph format, but could also have been in a blank fill-in checklist format for very short tasks. A removable plastic divider that you could write on and move from week to week would also be nice, and then you wouldn't have to write in the book.

3.5 stars.

Thanks, but WAWYCJWIO (why abbreviate when you can just write it out) and actually communicate with most people?

Is this a twitter or some other secret "cool in crowd" thing?

CIJ*?

It's a very commonly used abbreviation. But anytime you see an abbreviation you don't understand, just google "internet acronyms" to learn what it is.

Google, btw, is a web site at which you can search for things. Visit the site, type in the term or phrase you are searching for, and click on one of the listed results.

Hope this helps!

Sorry, but NO, that is not a common acronym, and even after reading the "translation" several times I still have to pause to remember/connect what that's supposed to mean.

The Google comment was nasty and unwarranted. The other woman's mocking was on-par dude. YMMV? Wtf is that? It doesn't even make much sense in the sentence! I get what she's getting at, but why blubber between the lines on an online review? Just spit it out already so we can figure out if it's worth buying!

Aha! I was hoping by clicking on the comments I would get an answer to this questions, since I couldn't be bothered enough to search Google for an acronym I've never seen anyone use before. Here, I kind of thought I knew them all. Granted, I don't think I've ever actually used the words "your mileage may vary" in a sentence before, anyway.

This I can definitely relate to. Yes, I knew the abbreviation, seen it used by others (although never used it myself), but that's precisely the thing - I never actually heard anyone use that phrase verbally.

That was just nasty, Marie. It's not a commonly-used abbreviation except on internet forums. People who don't use internet forum communities (which is most people) will have likely never seen "YMMV" before. Not understanding juvenile, lazy forum speak does not equate to complete technological illiteracy, and your tone was just completely uncalled for.
