Thank goodness for Eileen Roth
Let's get this straight. This isn't a book about organizing, it's about empowerment. Thanks to the principles succinctly and humorously expressed by Eileen Roth, professional organizing consultant, my work has become more efficient - and my home more peaceful - than ever.
Eileen Roth is a professional consultant for people who can benefit from getting organized - and that means everyone. Even if you think that you're pretty tidy, Roth will give you tricks of the trade to keep things not only easy to find, but easy to categorize and to access. There are things we do all the time that just don't make sense, and Roth gleefully points this out: why do we keep pulling out the stepping stool to get the blender on the high shelf? Why do we keep going into the other room to get paper for the printer? The answer is - you shouldn't. It makes a lot more sense to keep things close by (duh), but honestly, most of us make a purchase and put it wherever comes to mind.
Roth opens the book by stating that organizing is a SKILL. This means it can be learned. So even if you feel (like me) that entropy is a natural state - perhaps even a natural state of mind - Roth will set you straight with her little nuggets of organizing goodness. She will encourage you, and give you memorable and unintimidating mnemonics and acronyms along the way.
Roth says that she has been organizing since she was a toddler; when guests came to visit, she would become flustered if things weren't put back in order. Although I do believe anyone can learn to be organized, Roth obviously has a natural impetus and talent for organization...and thank goodness she does!
