The quality of the paper and huge number of beautiful photos surprised me in a paperback book. It's lovely--and inspiring. I participated in Melissa's "Get Organized Challenge" launch party, and in one month my home looks so much better without a huge investment of time. I found it very helpful to focus on one space in my home at a time. The first space is Entrances, and it's the perfect place to start. I set up my Command Central and Mail Sorting Station, and that had a ripple effect throughout our home: minimal paper clutter! (The paper monster easily takes over unless a simple space and routine is in place.) The other spaces include Living Spaces, Kitchen & Dining Room, Master Bedroom, Bathrooms, Kids' Rooms, and Home Office & Creative Spaces. Since I work from home and enjoy a few different crafts, I needed help! This is where I pared down a lot, gifting craft supplies that I knew I wouldn't use. And Melissa's suggestion to set up task stations helped me look at my space with new eyes. I highly recommend this book because simple changes really do make a significant difference! And Melissa makes organizing fun rather than a chore.
This book is wonderful!! It truly is the only book you need for simplifying and decluttering your home. A must-read for those who desire to have a tidier home and more free time.
