Everyone,

I want to share a special story with you. I am an adult special education teacher who has been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome/Disorder. Almost everything in my "personal" vs "work" life has been so disorganized. I have tons of late fees, I dont pay the bills on time, ect, ect. My apartment is so cluttered that I almost was ready to give up. I would come home from work, get on the computer and then fall asleep. when I went out shopping, I would impulse buy rather than think first "Do I really need this?" I never donated items, I just kept them because I "thought I would need them someday." i found Jamie's blog on a website. I purchased this book and i'm about 1/2 way finished with decluttering my 1 bedroom apartment. Yes folks, this works for us single people too. Jamie, you have the most "fun" job in the world. I love organizing and decluttering my classroom, but I never knew how to do it with my own living space. I have made over 4 trips to Goodwill this week alone. Trust me if you have a home, you need this book. It won't cost you a thing to buy extra either. She shows how to turn a pile of junk into an organized living space.

This book has made an immediate difference in my life. I got it at the library and then had to buy it so I can refer back to it. I implemented the desktop filing system, and I haven't had papers piling up on my kitchen counter for the first time in twenty years. I've read a lot of organizing books, but this one was the most helpful to me. Real change in my life. Gotta love it.

There may be some gems in amongst the 1000, but with suggestions such as "label everything," and "program commonly called numbers into speed dial" prevailing, I wished she had picked out her best 100 and saved readers the time finding them.

As another reviewer said, this book doesn't really have anything too original, though there are a few gems. It's very family oriented, so if you're a single person or even living in a college dorm, you might want to look for some thing more single-oriented. (Otherwise a good 20% is of no use to you.). The best thing about the book is it's in list form. If you're someone who likes everything to be easy-to-go-bullet-list format, get this. Novak doesn't waste time explaining why each tip is good, she's right to the point.

Physically, the worst thing about the book is for a short/little book it's thick and heavy. Heavier than what I'd like to carry in my purse, and thick enough to make my fingers work.

Would I say buy it? 50/50.

This is a great find! I have read tons of organizing books. this one really is a great find! This is a easy read and much much more than 1000 tips are in this book. Lots and lots of tips that are time saving and very helpful! the list of 1000 is VERY comprehensive to say the least! gives tips for moving, cleaning out, adhd, family life, time savers, clutter proofing, and much much more. if i were to buy 1 book, it would be this one.

I was a little skeptical at the title an wondered if it would really deliver. Was I delighted and amazed!! It is everything it promises and more. Each little piece of advice really helps. I was interested in getting better organized and this book certainly helps.I still have a long way to go, but I've started organizing using Jamie's secrets and they are great.

I have been reading through the book. It is easy to follow and convenient. The way it is ORGANIZED is even great! Just like Jamie says - you might not have time to read the entire book, but she set it up so you can use it as a reference and look up areas for organizing. Jamie's ideas are practical and easy to put into anyone's busy life. This book is a MUST HAVE and would make a great gift for anyone!
