A decade's worth of home organization expertise in this handy guide. Following an introduction on the psychology of clutter, the book goes room by room, making it an excellent step-by-step guide for anyone wanting to declutter an entire home. But it is not only for decluttering physical space; Thomas's goal is nothing short of organizing entire lives, which, she writes, will help those who follow her advice be happier, healthier, and more productive. She shares tips for reducing digital clutter and keeping homes clean and organized. Readers will get a lot of use out of her checklists for maintaining attractive, tranquil, clutter-free spaces as well as packing for travel and seasonal home organizing. The focus of the book is on the busy, two-working-parent households, complete with chapters on children's rooms and engaging the whole household in both decluttering and maintenance... This book promises to be useful for readers hoping to purge any level of clutter. Photos of
well-organized home interiors throughout the book offer inspiration and ideas for both neophyte and advanced organizers. (Publisher's Weekly 2015-11-20)
The essential companion for anyone looking to organize their life and rid themselves of clutter. Filled with trade secrets, resources, tips, tools, tactics, techniques and organization revelations, Decluttering Your Home arms readers with the tools to create a living space that looks attractive and feels both inviting and comfortable. This practical book guides the reader start-to-finish through the process of how to get rid of clutter in the places where people tend to hoard it most: the bedroom, kitchen, closets, bathroom and every hoarder's favorite, the basement. Geralin Thomas brings her wealth of professional experience--both as a Certified Professional Organizer specializing in Chronic Disorganization and Hoarding, and from her time working on A and E TV's Emmy nominated show Hoarders--and gives readers the motivation they need to get their lives sorted.

I almost never do book reviews -- let me be honest, with my crazy, distracted personality. I just really don't enjoy reading books. But, this one -- this one is totally different. If I had to write a book, this would be how I'd want it to be. I have no interest in writing a book, but this would be the way I'd want it. If you need some motivation, some simple guidelines, pictures (I like lots of pictures), and examples of how to get things decluttered and organized - you are going to love this book. (Becky Organizing Made Fun Blog 2015-11-06)
Geralin has been a professional organizer since 2002. It's abundantly apparent in this book that she knows her stuff. The book is full of bite-sized information and suggestions for every area in the house. It's richly illustrated, making it really appealing to read and very accessible. The information in the book is a wonderful combination of practical and aspirational. She covers things that are in every home (like junk drawers) to things that I probably could only aspire to (a converted armoire-style storage cabinet with custom-made drawers to act as a pantry)... In the book, Geralin offers specific suggestions on decluttering, as well as fantastic organizing and storage tips. So if you're not dealing with a whole lot of clutter but just want to fine-tune your organizing, you'll love this. If you are dealing with clutter, it'll be a godsend. I love the chapter on maintenance, which covers creating habits and also offers advice on coping with backsliding. And the final chapter--full
of checklists of chores, tasks, and even wardrobe and meal planners--is really useful. (Janine Adams Peace of Mind Organizing Blog 2015-11-23)
This useful guide provides fun, creative and painless ways to get started using tips, techniques, quick fixes and trade secrets used by professional organizers... The book begins with her discussion of psychology of clutter and the various personality types... The second section is what I call the meat of the book. Here we learn how to get rid of clutter in the common areas where it tends to pile up the most. Think the bedroom, kitchen, closets, bathrooms and the basement... After you've completed your decluttering, now you have to maintain. The author has dedicated an entire section to maintenance. Learn how to stay motivated and easy ways you can involve the whole family into keeping your home clean and organized... If decluttering your home is on your to-do list, consider picking up this book to help keep you focused and get the job done right! (Stacie Simply Stacie Blog 2015-11-28)
