Whether you are busy dealing with a demanding job, raising kids, or coping with illness, simply finding the time to get organized can be a challenge. The 8-Minute Organizer to the rescue!

Regina Leeds shows how anyone can organize their home with just a few minutes each day. She has tailored her magic formula (eliminate, categorize, organize) so that readers can work in short, effective increments and complete small projects that add up to big progress. The book includes hundreds of systems and tricks--from rapid closet rehab to tackling junk drawers, clutter-busting a room to setting up a mail system. Leeds also offers quick but important daily routines (making the bed), periodic tasks (checking the smoke detector), and fun projects (creating a dream board) to keep up the momentum.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Library Journal, 5/15/12
“Leeds gets right to the point and offers simple, attainable advice”

Tucson Citizen, 5/14/12
“[Leeds] creates easy organizational projects with complete with step-by-step instructions so that with eight minutes or so each day we can de-clutter our homes and accomplish a more organized life. Whether you want to clean out that junk drawer in your kitchen or just get a handle on your mail, this book will help get you started in the right direction.”
 
Denver Post, 5/14/12
“Realistic, down-to-earth solutions that make lives easier…Leeds has assembled ideas and solutions that are straightforward and easy to do."

Library Journal
Professional organizer Leeds (One Year to an Organized Life: From Your Closets to Your Finances, the Week-by-Week Guide to Getting Completely Organized for Good) gets it: she knows that the mindset of the clutter-prone person isn't conducive to wading through pages of psychological text on the nature of a disorder. Leeds proposes a simple formula—eliminate, categorize, organize—to help readers streamline their lives in short segments of time. Each chapter offers ideas for a particular room in the home and includes ideas for exit strategies (e.g., what to take out when leaving the room), tweaks (e.g., mental tasks), and extra ammo (e.g., ideas for more ambitious long-term results). VERDICT Leeds gets right to the point and offers realistic, actionable advice.
