About the Reviews

I am chronically disorganized. I have purchased an read the *best* organizing books out there and while the ideas in them are great, my problem was implementation! I would look at a mess and think to myself, I don't even know where to start. So then I wouldn't start at all or I would get discouraged at a lack of progress.

This book is broken down week by week in discrete subparts, such as organize your email or organize your car. You can start at any point (I started on week 17, organize your car) and it goes through step by step, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO! You can check the items off one by one and there is a place to list additional items that are pertinent to you. There is then a list of items on HOW to stay organized for that particular area. Many of them I have put on the calendar to keep me in line, others are just habits that needed to be formed. Often there were items I hadn't even thought about.

By breaking it down into smaller parts, and adding a checklist, it is much easier to tackle items and see progress. The car only took a couple of hours and then I was able to do another project. Seeing progress is very motivating!

There are additional weeks provided that probably don't apply to everyone (organize a move, organize a new baby) but that very well could come in handy.

This is a book I will certainly use, all the others are going off to the used book store!

*********************************

I got this along with a few other titles along the same line. I ended up liking this one best. I'll admit that I almost need someone to organize my organizing books, but I kept looking for the silver bullet. This is as close to it as it comes. I would buy this book again, if I lost it. It's sprial bound so it's easy to have laying open, the book is great quality hard cover with nice colorful pages. Another title I really like is "30 Days to a Simpler Life" by Connie Cox and Chris Evatt.

I notice that it is coming out in a paper back. It would still be a great book to have, but I really do prefer the spiral bound.

*********************************

Just started reading this, but lent it to my 11 year old daughter who immediately went to the organizing closet page and actually took its advice! So far so good!
