Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chandra, a singer/songwriter with ten albums to her credit, shares her principles for creating a harmonious environment when juggling a business, home life, and social responsibilities. Her two best tips suggest zoning (placing objects where they will be used) and completion (putting things away right after using them). As in many other books of this genre, Chandra takes readers through the house and office, room by room, and gives directives for organizing things or throwing them away. Other than some interesting points in the chapter on myths and bad habits, the book offers nothing new. [See also Alicia Rockmore and Sarah Welch's Pretty Neat, reviewed below.—Ed.]

Having spent years organizing offices for pay, I was, unfortunately, not applying those principles at home. My office career was high pressure with many irons in the fire, deadlines, etc. I always excelled at work, but not at home. Ms Chandra's book really made me rethink my at home mindset. I know the system works because it is basically how I kept my office and what I required of my employees. I needed to understand that all I needed to do was apply those work/office/deadline/paperwork handling principles to my closets and my kitchen and all the other living spaces of my home. She is so right in how much easier and more relaxed your home is uncluttered and everything is in it's proper place. Once you're there, the maintenance is a breeze. I can't tell you how anxiety relieving that is. I no longer look around and feel guilty because "I really need to (fill in the blank"). I have more time to do what I want instead of flailing about accomplishing little or nothing of note. If you really want to reduce your constant, low-grade, anxiety, read this book and truly commit to do it. You'll be amazed at the difference in your whole outlook on life. You'll feel more in charge of your life rather than constantly reacting. You'll be more relaxed, your stress level will take a nose dive, and you'll have a much sunnier outlook on life.
