    " This book is great for a novice self help book reader. But since I am advanced in the subject, I didn't gain any new insights. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 False Millennium | 2/17/2014

    " It's fine as a tool for someone who lacks organizational skills, but redundant if you know the drill. Where it is not helpful is in citing areas that can cost a great deal of money to make you "fully organizational." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JJ | 2/12/2014

    " Month by month plan to organizing your home. A lot of Zen stuff included... why might you be the disorganized self you are, etc. I found some of the tips helpful but wanted more tips on staying organized once I rearranged according to her instructions. If only she could visit and do the work for me. I also found her suggestions about why people hang on to so much stuff helpful as a way to inspire me to get rid of it. Bottom line -- some good suggestions and some parts of the book to skim through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/9/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristie Helms | 1/5/2014

    " I loved how well this book broke down things into step by step chunks of achievable-ness. I didn't have much time to devour it though since I had checked it out from the library rather than purchased. I'm definitely going to add it to my "to buy" list though. "

    " For those that wish to take a more Zen approach to household projects and organization, this is a good choice. Lots of journal prompts and mantras to keep your year organized by project. "
