From the Publisher
Supercheater Jeff Bredenberg wants you to get control of your life. Having previously given us "How to Cheat at Cleaning," he's back with "How to Cheat at Organizing: Quick, Clutter-Clobbering Ways to Simplify Your Life" (Taunton Press, $14.95). This comprehensive book isn't just about corralling your 600 CDs or that chaos you call a hall closet. Bredenberg shows how to organize your living space, wardrobe, even your eating habits. For those of us suffering from postholiday materialism hangovers, Bredenberg's wisdom is welcome indeed: "Celebrate getting rid of stuff instead of acquiring." After reading his book, you may want to go forth and organize - and cheat with impunity. --"Star Tribune" (Minneapolis, MN)
Don't bother being a perfectionist if you want to get your home organized. Even a little bit tidier will make a big differences says Jeff Bredenberg, author of the recently released "How to Cheat at Organizing: Quick, Clutter-Clobbering Ways to Simplify Your Life." That said, Bredenberg goes on to tell how to be more efficient in nearly everything. He'll tell you how to take on the medicine cabinet. The living room. The trunk of the car. Your wallet. Your condiments. He keeps going. He offers ways to simplify credit card debt. Exercise programs. Travel. Trips to the doctor. He's so efficient he's exhausting. But that's OK. You don't have to follow all of his advice. --"Star-Telegram"
Jeff Bredenberg has some news for you: the Queen of England is not coming for tea. Did you think she was? Do you insist on having everything in perfect order at all times, just in case she drops by? Today's world no longer requires that, says Bredenberg, known in some circles as the "Guruof Dirt," and most recently the author of "How to Cheat at Organizing: Quick, Clutter-Clobbering Ways to Simplify Your Life" (The Taunton Press, $14.95). When it comes to organizing, the all-or-nothing, top-to-bottom philosophy is antiquated and unnecessary. What you need is a pared-down, organized-just-enough lifestyle. What you need to do is create enough order that you will be happy with it - but take shortcuts every chance you get. "--Deseret Morning News" (Salt Lake City)
