What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“This is not another organizing book. In her warm and friendly style, Jamie Novak brilliantly offers a new way of thinking and inspires you to change your mindset about organizing, making money & saving the planet all at once. I was surprised by each new organizing tip that I had never before considered! And, most importantly she inspires you to take ACTION! In between sections, I found myself putting the book down and ripping the contents out of closets and cupboards using her invaluable techniques. Jamie Novak's method works!”
—Tamara Monosoff, Founder of www.mominvented.com & author of Your Million Dollar Dream, The Mom Inventors Handbook and co-author of the One Page Business Plan for Women in Business.

“Jamie Novak makes me feel like I can tackle my junk drawer without getting lost in the rubber bands and expired coupons. She makes it easy to take the organizing I so desperately need to do in small, easy-to-take bites, while never once making me feel bad about the stuff falling out of my closet.”
— Jen Singer, author of the Stop Second-Guessing Yourself guides to parenting
