I was excited to buy this book after hearing rave reviews about it. When I got it, I set aside some time and started pouring over all the chapters. Unfortunately, I rent a small apartment with not a lot of storage, small closets, and not many cupboards. I figured this book would be perfect. Boy, was I wrong. If you don't have large closets, a ton of cupboards or a pantry, this book will be a waste of your money. The only good tips I got from it was how to fold my clothes, socks, etc., so that I could fit more in my drawers. The rest of it I skimmed through, and then put the book away since I couldn't use it. As I said, if you own a home, this book would be perfect for you. If you rent a small apartment with not a lot of closets and storage, then don't waste your money.

I bought this book after seeing the work Linda Koopersmith did on "Clean House" (Style Network). Watching that show helped me to get started on cleaning all of the crap out of my house and getting organized. Linda's book gives the instructions and hints that the show doesn't have time to cover. I've read other organizing books that were way too detailed and overwhelming. This is a basic guide that covers the essentials. The book is loaded with photographs, and the photos really help you to visualize what you're working towards. Linda has also included a list, complete with phone numbers & web sites, of stores where organizing materials can be purchased.

The focus on "Beverly Hills" in both the title and the contents of the book may come across as intimidating or even a little snobbish. But, Linda Koopersmith is clearly not a snob. (Why else would she allow a photograph of herself without any makeup on to be included in this book?). She comes across as genuine and sincere in wanting to help her readers improve their lives.

This is a book that you will be able to refer to over and over again, so it is definitely a good purchase. In addition to the television show "Clean House", other readers might enjoy "Mission Organization" (Home & Garden Network).

Dear Linda:

I am a single mother of 3, living in a very small apartment, I have always struggled with organization, as both my middle son and myself have ADD.

I have read organization books and watched every show out there. When I started to watch clean house, and saw way you organized, not just for looks but also for function, I was hooked.

I finally got your book, I bought it for myself for Christmas.

In just one night, I refolded all my clothes they way you suggested, and OH MY GOSH, just that small thing has made an enormous difference. The next day I did my daughters clothes, and so on.

I had been trying to save money for a while to get my son a new dresser, because his was much too small, but guess what!, it's not anymore!

I can't wait for this weekend to find another project!

Just wanted to say thanks!

A little info: I'm a pretty organized person. I have good habits about de-cluttering, putting things back when I'm done w/ them, and my spaces almost always look the same (neat), because it's important to me. I would count keeping a clean & organized home as my no. 4 priority, behind taking care of my health, my family/friends & taking care of my finances. So the home is very meaningful to me, and I'm willing to allot a good deal of my income & time to it. I realize that is not everyone's position, and I don't judge you if it isn't. I'm a renter, but as a long-term, well-liked tenant, I have a good deal of "play" room with putting up nails, screws, shelves, etc. I know that not everyone has that luxury. I'm fairly on-track as far as daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly & yearly chores go, so I didn't buy this book at my wit's end with my home. I really wanted to just make what I DID keep around look nice, as well as give myself a little wiggle room for the additional purchases that will naturally come in a normal lifetime. I'm at a great advantage being, by choice, unmarried & child-free, and while I don't live alone, I'm essentially the one who calls the shots regarding decorating & housework. So I will acknowledge right up front that I may not seem to have the same mindset or lifestyle as the average person reading this review. I just want to discuss my take on the book, what worked, what didn't, and why I think it's indispensible. I know that the approach of this book, however, will not be to everyone's liking, so I'll try to explain why I think that is, as well.

I've read a lot of organizing/housework/simplifying books over the years (my review history here on Amazon proves that!) It's a bit of an obsession of mine. I've watched all the organizing shows on TV out there.

This book has CHANGED MY LIFE! Thanks to Linda, I have now been able to actually organize my kitchen cabinets so that things no longer fall on my head the minute I open the doors! That is saying a whole lot, believe me!

Before buying this book, my husband and I were convinced that we had no space to put anything in our kitchen, and that the only solution would be to buy new and bigger cabinets. Now that I have followed the "recipes" in Linda's book, not only are new cabinets not necessary, but we have found extra space in our existing cabinets that we never thought we had!

As soon as I finish the kitchen, I'm going to tackle every closet in my house AND the basement! This book has given me the knowledge and the confidence to make much need changes that have and will free me from the clutter that has ruled me for decades!

The instructions are easy to follow and I have had very little trouble finding the organization tools that are outlined in the book. Bed, Bath & Beyond is an excellent source, for example. Who knew that these tools even existed?

Linda, if you're out there reading this, THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
