Overview

The thrifty organization guide that shows you what to keep and what to toss.

Have you ever bought a duplicate of something when you couldn't find the one you already had at home? Have you ever held on to a brand-new jacket you know you'll never wear or found that the magazine subscription you didn't like was automatically renewed because you forgot to cancel it in time? Everyone knows that clutter can be unsightly and time-consuming, but it can also cost you money. Stop Throwing Money Away is the first guide that shows you how to get organized and save or make money at the same time. Step by step, room by room, you'll learn how to reduce, reuse, recycle, swap, sell, share and more as you streamline your possessions and your life.

  • Explains the secrets of half-and-half organizing, showing you how to make money by paring what you own by half and plugging cash clutter traps by shopping at home
  • Exposes the four ways our clutter makes us poor and how to change our habits and behavior
  • Written by Jamie Novak, an organizing expert for iVillage and a regular contributor to Woman's World and Woman's Day. She has appeared on QVC and HGTV.

If you want a vase for flowers, recycle a glass jar. When you need more cupboard space, sell those expensive kitchen gadgets you never use. Whether you've got a little clutter or a lot, Stop Throwing Money Away is packed with indispensable ideas and time-saving tips that will help you find more money and simplify your life.

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
