While I used to be an extremely organized person, life circumstances have made that difficult for me to do so without guidance now, and this book is exactly what I needed. I really appreciated the importance the author placed on the usefulness of teaching children to de-clutter which will in turn, give them a very handy tool for the rest of their lives. She also gave the great foundational idea of looking at all the clutter and deciding what is essential, and what's not, with "essential" being the focus. What a great word to use when cleaning out clutter that instantly starts your mind heading in the right direction for clutter elimination. I was absolutely thrilled to read the step-by-step directions that also give a general idea of how long it should take to de-clutter each room. That will be a quite useful bit of information when I start this process because then I will be able to realize if I am making as much progress with as much speed as I should be. Definitely can't wait to get started with all of this great advice!
Over the last couple years, my brother has gotten rid of virtually all his material possessions and now lives out of a suitcase, traveling all around the world and making money on the Internet. I, on the other hand, find myself moving sixty miles down the road every few years and having to take twenty trips to haul all of my junk from one home or apartment to the next. This book has really helped me clear out and organize a lot of the things that have been adding stress to my life. My house is cleaner than it has ever been, I've sold, donated, and thrown out tons of things I didn't need, and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I've still got a ways to go to catch up to my brother, but at least I'm not living with much clutter anymore and I'm sure if I decide to move again it will be a much simpler process. A great book that has benefited me enormously. Give it a read.
After watching an episode of Hoarders and realizing my cluttered apartment was getting out of hand, I went searching for information to help me get it under control, and I found this book. For me, the best part of the book was the last chapter since it gives a checklist for symptoms of a hoarder. Before reading this book I was in quite a panic thinking I was turning into a hoarder, but the checklist helped me calm down a bit and realize that I am not a hoarder yet – I am just badly disorganized and in need of making order out of the chaos of my clutter. Thankfully, this book spells it out in “baby steps” and tells me just where to begin. I really love the 5-box method and have already used it to get a good start on my clutter problems! It is such a simple yet versatile method that I believe it will work well for getting my mother’s large house in order as well. And when I convince my co-workers to go along with it, the 5-box method will also get our offices in order at work!
Purchasing this book was something I did mainly for my husband. I always joke about him being a hoarder. After reading this book, I have discovered that no he is not. Thoroughly enjoyed the writer’s aspect to the organization of clutter. The five box method is something I am going to try and see how that works. The 21 day theory is something that I do believe in. I got a lot of ideas for better organization and this book is well worth reading.
The simplicity in this book is really what seems to make it work. Now I'm not going to tell you that my home is suddenly a showcase for Better Homes and Gardens but every step helps a little more. The ideas are simple to implement and take more will power than anything. The book is broken into sections for your home so it's easy to pick the biggest trouble spot you have and focus on that for a bit. The Baby steps method is easy and proven to work by several other programs. I particularly found the tips for under the bathroom sink and bedroom closet helpful!
I recently went through a move, and packing up all of my stuff, including from the room I grew up in at my mother's house, and hauling it across the country was a huge hassle. It was even worse when I got to my new place and realized how much smaller it was than my old one! I was feeling really overwhelmed by all my clutter until I got this book, and I am now feeling much better. I learned there were a lot of great, simple steps from this book that I can take to make a difference in the way that I live. Sometimes when you see those home improvement shows or fancy magazine layouts that try to show you how to be more organized, the techniques they share are just not possible for people with busy lives and a budget! This book even goes through a step-by-step system, where they give you a timeline to complete each goal, so it doesn't feel so overwhelming to get started. I would say the schedule they lay out is my favorite part of the book--I am a huge list maker, and they have done all that work for me! All I needed to do was go through the steps and cross stuff off.
Wonderful helper as you go room to room and organize your stuff!
The book was only slightly helpful. A lot of common sense stuff that I already knew, like getting through a difficult room with "donate", "trash", and "put away" piles.
