THIS SYSTEM IS DIFFERENT!
I appreciated that this system works around how YOU work. It truly is one of the simplest to understand and straightforward in its approach. It can be specific and complex IF IT NEEDS TO BE, but you don't have to START with a complex system.
Honestly, this is the only system I've seen where you can watch the hour video and immediately apply it.
Note: I DID also purchase the book to help with those complex questions, and it was very helpful for those. But for just getting going, watch the video and be quickly equipped to get a chunk done.
Most houses have linen closets - not my little house ~~
Most houses have a utility closet in or near kitchen for broom - buckets - ironing board, etc - not my little house ~~
you get my point ! Thanks Julie !
Before you tackle a major organization project it is better to spend the 1 hour or so watching this video than reading the book. You will be immediately ready to organize instead of being paralyzed with so much written advice.
After much digging through the piles of papers and trash in my apartment, I finally found the TV Guide but sadly, the show was only on once. I started searching and eventually found that the exact show that aired on PBS was going to be on home video. I ordered it from Amazon immediately and two days after it was released, it was in my mailbox.
The video's easy-to-understand common sense information that will have you saying to yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?". This tape is definitely a must for you or any unorganized person in your life. If you follow the simple instructions, your home, apartment or office space will be noticably neater and more organized in less than one day after viewing this tape.
The only drawback is that it plays too much like an infomercial with audience members laughing and applauding at everything the hostess says like it's the funniest or most interesting thing they've ever heard. But stick with it and you will learn why you are so messy and -- most importantly -- how to fix it.
Is it really that easy to "come clean"?
My apartment is much neater now solely because of this tape. I recommend it highly.
I haven't had a chance to use the system yet but I got a library copy I feel I can't give up. I have watched it several times,(more on the how to start part.) I feel that finally somebody understands where I am coming from and is validating my feelings and rights. She has created a system that takes my personhood into account instead of just the culturally expected way of life. She says organizing is about identifying what is important to and getting access to them. To celebrate your abundance if you feel deprived. Get a beautiful trunk and create a pleasant trip down memory lane and take it often so you don't have a need for so much volume.
I have recomended it to several friends I am so excited and loaned it one who is right now watching it the 4th time.

I watched several times before I realized the positive influence.
Beginning with a small area supported the concept.
