"Her [Toni Hammersley] book dives into minutiae, from cataloging DVDs to separating Tupperware lids from bases for better storage. Lots of photographs and illustrations offer visual references, because we all need goals (The New York Post)
"Not only is it beautifully photographed, but it is also super useful. It is organized into three parts: Kitchen and Dining, Living and Storage, and Working and Outdoor. The author realizes that we all want to have an organized home, but that life sometimes gets in the way so she shares quick tips, big plans for when you have more time, and lists to get everything done, which we love." (Westchester Magazine)
"If you haven’t already, you need to add The Complete Book of Home Organization to your must-read list...In all honesty, I love this book. The projects in it are very inspiring and I’ve come up with a lot of ideas for my home based off pages of this book." (Modern Day Moms)

The first thing I noticed right away is that there is no skimping on quality, here. The colors are vibrant, the paper is nice and glossy and thick. The corners of the front and back covers are metal-tipped, which is nice because not only does it give the book weight, but it protects the corners from bending and fraying. Inside, the pictures are plentiful, inspiring, and gorgeous. Just flipping through the book will make you feel motivated enough to start tackling an area of your house!
The book is broken down into various "challenge" rooms - kitchen, dining room, garage, etc. Each room is then broken down into specific tasks, which you can follow along in the 15 week time frame, or go at your own pace. There are tons of ideas on saving space, organizing, and lest you feel overwhelmed at the state of your current household, the author has also many suggestions on how to start the process (which is sometimes the hardest part). If you follow the book page by page, at the end of roughly 15 weeks your home will be clean and organized! The best part is that you can work at your own pace. The process is manageable enough that you can do a little bit every day...or set aside a couple of hours on the weekends and knock out an entire room in one swoop.
It's clear that the author has spent a lot of time compiling this book. It is well written and detailed enough for those that need someone to point the way step-by-step, but it also leaves room for those that are not complete novices to join in the fun. There are tons of ideas that I've never seen on any other blog or website, which was refreshing. The book stands on its own, but you can also pair it with the suggestions and printables found on the author's website.
Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and hope the author decides to write a Volume 2!
