I recently purchased this book and found it very helpful in getting organized. It is written in a clear, easy-to-read format, and offers lots of solid tips on clearing out clutter and getting rid of the things that make your house look messy and unkempt. I like that she breaks down the chapters into room-by-room strategies. Using the tips in this book, I've already conquered the clutter in our family room, master bath, and master bedroom. On to the rest of the house!

I may be biased because I'm a professional organizer: Ms. Smallin's book was a little too simple for me.  I don't like what I think of as "of course you can" books, books which list easy solutions and if you just follow the suggestions you'll be fine.  If the solutions were that easy, you might not need the books!  But her book is a TERRIFIC resource for checklists that do help people build schedules, routines and habits into their lives which can be very valuable tools for getting organized.  And her book is filled with possibilities - if a suggestion does make sense to you, try it!  The worst that will happen is the technique doesn't work for you after all, and you'll still then have a clue about what might work instead, the clue that you need to try a different approach.  Lauren Williams, Casual Uncluttering LLC, Woodinville, WA, USA
