In this practical book, readers will learn how to

-perform a room-by-room audit of their space to see if it's functioning at its best

-make the most of existing storage space and find clever ways to add more

-find creative ways to arrange furnishings and accessories that maximize space and bring harmony and style to the home

Whether empty nesters who are downsizing, newlyweds who are setting up their first nest, or anyone who needs creative new ideas, readers will love these strategies, tips, and solutions to maximize their space and enhance their quality of life.

I've gotten several great ideas for making better use of space in our house, and I've barely started on the book. It's not just stories, there are lots of lists of organizing tips and suggestions, sources for tools, supplies, and more. Borrowed it from the library thinking it would be a quick read, but am going to buy my own copy now.

This is a great book for tips and tricks on how to maximize small living spaces. With storage and decorating ideas as well as hints and tips on how to downsize your belongings. With ideas for every room in the house from hallways to bathrooms, bedrooms and study spaces. If you ever wondered how you're going to fit "all that stuff" into "that small space" this book will show you what you need most, what you can live without and how to organize it all!

Just about all houses could use a little better organization and efficiency. In Small Space Organizing, Kathryn Bechen shows the reader how to examine a room's level of function, to creatively arrange areas to be both efficient and inviting, and to optimize each space, no matter how small. Small Space Organizing by Kathryn Bechen is a great resource for those of us that need a little extra help in getting/staying organized. One of my favorite things was that as the author went through each room she had long lists of specific ideas for organizing common items in each room. Then at the end of each chapter there was a place for thoughts, notes and ideas. I found the book very helpful, although I did not have time prior to writing this review to actually try out all of the ideas I want to implement. This book is also convenient to use. After you read the first few chapters, you can skip around in the book according to whatever area of your house that you are focusing on at that time. I highly recommend this book as I definitely see myself referring back to it time and time again.Available January 2012 at your favorite book seller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Revell Publishing, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Not at all a book to help you to bring order to a small space. Just a lot of stories (some not quite interesting) about places the author lived. I was hoping for at least some photos. No just more stories. Her organizing tips could fill up less than twenty pages. It could be a booklet and should be under five bucks. A let down in my opinion. Just buy a magazine that has tip about organization.
