What makes this book work for me are checklists - no journaling about why my living room is a mess or why my parents had a cluttered kitchen. Just the lists of things to get done. What I really like is the follow up lists for a month later, 3-6 months later, a year later. I make tickler files out of these. Can't wait for the next book to come out.

After reading way too many books on organization, and learning something from each, I learned the most from this book. It really is one of those books in which you do not have to read from beginning to end and then start in. One can choose to read the chapter (any chapter) that they feel they need the most help with. This is motivating because the choice is yours. Then one can move on through the other organizational chapters fitting their particular needs at any specific time, place or point in their lives. I do emphasize that to get the most out of the book, write in it, or a journal, but do the exercises. They are thought-provoking and for me, the greatest stimulus to take a look at what I am doing now and what I really want to do and be like (i.e. a much more organized individual!) The awareness I have gained has been so beneficial. For it is through awareness that we see who we are and how we spend our time. Next comes change of habits ~ a bit harder to put things into action but NOT IMPOSSIBLE! ~ as you will discover in this book help and hope to continue on. The book is enjoyable to read because it is written in a form that makes one feel like "you can do this...you can become organized for here are the tools. Now put them to use in ways that will fit your lifestyle." Just remember, it is easy to become frustrated as one changes from a disorganized state of mind and being to an organized body and spirit. Just don't put the book down. Re-read the chapter or area of orgainzation in which you feel stuck. Or try another chapter. Just do not give up! You can become organized and this book is one of the best tools I have discovered! It is my hope and wish for all who do read this book that you, too, shall gain positive life-style changes as I have. Now I am on the journey of maintaining...no one said it would be easy to move from a disorganized state to an organized one AND that then you have to keep up the new habits. This book will take you on an engaging adventure to become organized and then to maintain. ENJOY!

Amazing....Jennifer Ford Berry offers practical, easy to adopt solutions to the everyday clutter in our lives. She never suggests complicated filing systems, only purely functional organization that works for you! From the first page to the last, you can make simple changes that lead to amazing clarity! You must start today and ORGANIZE NOW! My heartfelt thanks for sharing this book with me (and others, of course!).

I really enjoyed this book as it is probably one of the most easiest to read organizing book that I have come across. It is organized by category and takes you through 52 weeks with a different assignment for each one. This book is one that you can pick up for 2 minutes and then follow one of the suggestions. You can start organizing and de-cluttering right away!

The author has used a technique that I am always drawn to - checklists that are organized in a very practical fashion. She makes getting organized very easy and doable. I have way too many books on getting organized that do a lot of talking about how to get organized, but Jennifer must know that some of us just need a little more help. Getting organized can be very overwhelming for people, I think because they don't know where to start. Most things in life are like that and if you just take it one step at time, which how the author's book is set up. Just start on the first thing and do it and be done for the day. Then do the next step the next day and so on... Don't get all caught up in doing it all and DON'T look ahead. That will just confuse you and make you want to do more or start somewhere else. Start at the beginning and do one thing on the list. One step at time. In a week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks you'll have more done than if you try to do too much, get discouraged and give up.

This IS the only organizing book you will ever need. Jennifer doesn't waste your time with long, drawn out explanations about to get organized. She cuts to the chse with easy to use checklists. The book covers EVERY area of your life and has a section for notes. She also tells you how you can Live Green by getting organized with green organizing tips. Amazing book and fun and colorful too!

This book is not only user friendly, Organize Now actually allowed me to have fun, and enjoy tackling the task of organizing my business and home. Jennifer really did a fantastic job setting up her book in a way of promoting success and a sense of accomplishment for her readers. I have tried in the past to get organized, but I never know where or how to begin. Organize Now lays all of that ground work for you. I will be buying a copy for all of my friends and family this Holiday Season. I can't wait to open up to the chapter on organizing for the holidays...it is certainly going to be a whole new experience for me to feel under control and ready for the Holidays this year thanks to Jennifer Ford Berry's new book! It is seriously a MUST HAVE!

My sister and I decided to do this book as a book club to hold each other accountable. We felt like the book was not only practicle, not over whelming as a lot of self help books are. Each chapter gives a week to apply and inspire, so it is a stepped out process that is safe for the procrastinator

This is my go to book when I get stuck in a messy rut. She gives you a week by week guide to organizing everything in your life. I jump from room to room depending upon what I need encouragment with. We are getting ready for a move and this will be my guide for setting up my new home. Everything she says is kinda like duh but I need that to get me through.

Notes I made in the margins showing decisions helped me go forward and not have to rethink steps.
