As a professional organizer, I read a lot of organizing books. This book is one of my absolute favorites. The author has a no nonsense, direct approach to helping the reader identify their organizing issues in a given area. Then she provides specific solutions to address those issues. The photographs are also excellent examples of organizing designs and products. This one is a must for anyone trying to come up with organizing ideas & solutions throughout the home.

I love that this is a WORKBOOK. Other books tell you the psychological reasons for being unorganized, or they tell you to just do small projects. This book actually breaks up the projects in your home for you - and then you just have to get to work. Unbelievably easy!
