I am reading on line so just reading bits and pieces right now... Have been inspired to order a few things to help me organize, magazine holders and file cabinet...helping my problem area...! Thanks so much...!
I bought it based on the title and the cover illustration, thinking it was about organizing my stuff, but it's about organizing my life - not what I wanted. Don't judge a book by its cover? So true!
Dear Sue, I was given your book for for a Christmas gift, and I must thank you for writing such a wonderfully concise and informative book! It is fabulous and since I am now in the process of cleaning out my office/laundry room it will be a huge help. I am first accessing the purpose of the space, and then on to the rest. Guess I should say...reorganizing. Thanks so much Sue. Jan
