Editorial Reviews

A place for everything none
Don’t judge this book by its self-published-looking cover. It’s an excellent resource for folks who are chronically disorganized, and the people who live or work with them.

There are strategies for actually getting and staying organized, as well as insight into the phenomenon of chronic disorganization itself. I really appreciate this resource and will definitely be referring to it in the future. I really recommend it.
Alexandra none
This was really smart and inspiring and interesting to read. She has all kinds of weird techniques to organize people in idiosyncratic ways. Like she has her clients walk around the office "muttering", saying "oh man I have to pay this" and "my wife has been hassling me about this" etc. Then the things that come up repeatedly she makes file folders for no matter how random the categories. Things like "stuff I have to deal with or I will go to jail" for unpaid traffic violations, etc. .
Sandra Felton, Messies Anonymous
A must for everyone who is challenged by disorganization.
Sari Solden, M.S., LMFT
The only materials I ve seen on the subject that goes to the heart of how people with organizing challenges respond to their stuff , and ways to approach them that actually engage and excite rather than frustrate and demoralize. Your book comes from obvious understanding.
Shana none
This book is fantastic. Judith Kolberg is the co-author of ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life, and I knew I wanted to read more about what she has to offer. She is creative and upbeat, taking all the boredom right out of organization. Her suggestions about organizing around a theme have led me to the decision to set up my space like a classroom--it being the space within which I am most comfortable. Great, great little book.
