The Easy Organizer: 365 Tips for Conquering Clutter
This is a great little book bursting with tips to help get you organized. Not every idea is a new one, but what is not new to me, might be new to you. Some tips are the kind that make you want to slap yourself on the forehead for not thinking of it yourself.
Considering that our lifestyles & the sizes of our homes are all different, we will each take different things from this book to apply to our own lives. For me the problem is space. I live in a tiny historic cabin. I run my home based business in the entire upstairs. I have been working on improving the space & organization has been very hard with the constant construction upsets. Before we moved here organization was pretty easy. We lived in a large home with built-in book shelves & more space than we really needed. This is not to say we lived in a huge mansion, just more house than a couple with no kids & no business required. For us the real challenge is right now when space is at a premium.
My favorite thing about this book is the simple spiral bound layout. There isn't any silly fluff, just practical & useful information laid out very neatly. It is a book that I can grab when I have a moment & pick any spot to read from for inspiration. Thanks to some of the tips in this book, I feel more confident about putting miy foot down about messes & stuff piling up on a table. Now I have a clutter free table!
The best tip that we all need to follow is to put things back where they came from! I'm great about this as I hate messy spaces, but my husband is the exact opposit & as a result he creates chaotic messes where nothing can be found. There is nothing worse than trying to find something because it isn't where it belongs or wasting valuable time putting away what others didn't. I am making my voice heard regarding these issues & an noticing small improvements with my clutter making husband.
I have found something useful in every chapter of the book. I think this book will be worth having for many years to come. It will be a great refresher when things start to get messy or just a quick grab when I want something to read that I don't have to commit too, kind of like reading a magazine. Plus the book is small in size. It doesn't take up a lot of space. The spiral binding allows for it to lie flat. Scattered throughout are full color photos of organized areas although most of the book is text so you get a lot of information for you buck.
