Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 2/18/2014

    " This is one of the most helpful organizing books I've ever read. Julie is not a BO (born-organized) so she understands how I think and how to help me. One of the most helpful hints I've gleaned from her is to analyze what is working in my life and why. That helps me to understand myself and apply those same principles to other areas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/14/2014

    " Read it! Loved it! Is my home organized and neat? No way! Why? Because, life happens and I have five kids. So I just need Julie, the author, to come over and spend a week at my house. Then just maybe, I could get it all done. It is the doing it part, that I have not yet accomplished. But I am going to! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missy | 2/10/2014

    " The first time I have ever felt a writer got into my head and helped me see that I could be organized!!! It has worked I love this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonja | 2/7/2014

    " This is the best organizing book I ever read. It's easy to unterstand, easy to follow and gets you started immediately. After reading the relevant chapters I cleaned my worst corner of my flat in about an hour! Great book, the only one you need if you want to organize your stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 2/5/2014

    " Those that know me well, know that I really needed this book. Hopefully I will learn to be more organized after reading this book. She proposes a simple process that can be applied to anything in your life, your purse or your entire house. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 2/4/2014

    " This was pretty good. I liked a lot of the ideas, especially the idea that if I don't take the time to organize myself, I can't organize everything else. My favorite anecdote was her trying to get out of the house with her newborn, the diaper bag, and the kitchen sink. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Scharch | 2/4/2014

    " Known to many as the Bible for professional organizers, I found Morgenstern's ideas to be on-point, albeit a little dry. She breaks down the common American household and business by sections (living room, bathroom, bedroom, cubicle, etc.) to apply her tactics, and the book is less of a fun read, more of a reference material. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 1/26/2014

    " Great information on creating organizational systems in your home that work for your personality/style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dogdaysinaz | 1/22/2014

    " Some good ideas but more of the same "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Johnston | 1/18/2014

    " I read this book 15 years ago when I saw Julie on Oprah. My first time management book and still my favourite. This book is one I will not part with - ever! Thanks Julie "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Berthold | 1/10/2014

    " This is one to refer to time and again when you find yourself with piles of mess in odd spots in the homen or office. One I will never lightly part with. I love containerising! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James (DayOldNews) | 1/7/2014

    " Probably better for somebody with little organizing experience. Don't know why I thought this was going to reveal some big new ideas for me since I'm obsessed with organizing, but great for a beginner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 1/3/2014

    " I read the first edition of this book many years ago and made me into a Morgenstern fan. I am still struggling with clutter in my life, but I have found her books to be quite helpful in getting over the humps and understanding my own reluctance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 12/29/2013

    " It is worth to listen and listen again when you need changes and re-organize. Her tips are simple and doable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 12/24/2013

    " Very Helpful. It felt like I was reading a manual for aliens who came from an unorganized planet (me) and needed to know how to order things here on earth. So, Good guide for unorganized aliens. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 12/9/2013

    " Common sense. Outdated, @1998. B & W illustrations. I think it would be easier to get organizing tips from the television than from this book; perhaps on an episode of Hoarders. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christiana | 11/25/2013

    " I learned how to organize. The best part of the book was the lack of one size fits all solutions. It makes it so much easier to use and more likely that you'll get organized. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 7/25/2013

    " I have used this book over and over for organization tips. She's a great writer and her solutions are long-lasting if you set them up right. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 4/11/2013

    " Too bad I have forgotten all the principles to staying organized!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Anne | 2/25/2013

    " This had some excellent information and ideas in it. Labeling EVERYTHING is the one that I remember all this time later. I have since read Confessions of an Organized Homemaker and it has a lot of similar information, but I feel has a better attitude. I'm still glad I have read both books though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Barnett | 11/20/2012

    " Just couldn't bring into my reality. Even after re-reading years later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 10/9/2012

    " A little old for my elementary student (well, obviously, in the title it says "For Teens"), but even I gleaned a few tips and techniques from it. I think it will definitely be a worthwhile purchase for my kids when they're older--it's nicely geared to the specifics of teenage life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daftwullie | 7/28/2012

    " I usually scorn self-help books (probably to avoid admitting that I need them), but I felt like I had visited a fortune-teller who knew way too much about me. I have spent years already and have mostly overcome my messy issues, but I still found much food for thought here. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lily | 7/19/2012

    " Good concept but hard to implement. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 7/1/2012

    " Some great ideas but I never seem to actually get them put into action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 10/14/2011

    " Very interesting concept of why organization systems don't typically work. Want to try to put some of into practice "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 9/5/2011

    " Lots of helpful tips that can be used in all areas on my life! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melina | 8/24/2011

    " Good stuff in here. Now if I would just get off my butt and put some of these principles into practice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette | 6/19/2011

    " Some really good, useful tips, and it's good for motivation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pequete | 5/20/2011

    " This was a great and useful read. I already put it in practice on my home office and so far I'm very happy with the results. Now I'm off to the rest of the house... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyssa-Nicole | 5/3/2011

    " BEST organisational book I have read so far,

    I get my homework done on time, I know where everything is and HALLELUJAH I can ACTUALLY see the carpet of my bedroom

    THANK YOU JULIE MORGENSTERN :D !!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gayle | 4/25/2011

    " I'm sure that if you had a gigantic house, this book would be valuable. I found that I did not in fact have the space to create more space and organisation even after a massive purge of stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 4/11/2011

    " What I get out of it: Illustrates the valuable idea (an idea that I somehow overlooked) that your very house should reflect what you do as a person, and even your mission in life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 4/6/2011

    " It is worth to listen and listen again when you need changes and re-organize. Her tips are simple and doable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny Sudweeks | 3/25/2011

    " This book would probably appeal to teens, but it's too basic and beginner for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 1/27/2011

    " I got a couple of points from this book - everything in its place and organize it the way you use it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 1/26/2011

    " The definitive book on organizing your home (and office). Using a customized version of the system and process that Morgenstern puts forth is a fool-proof plan if you want to clean up your act. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/14/2011

    " If you've never read a book on organizing, this is a great place to start. I listened to it during a car ride to Chicago and back, which means it's a quick read. Read by the author, it's a very do-able approach to beginning the process of de-cluttering and organizing any space. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorna | 1/14/2011

    " So I've read enough of these type books to be an expert. Too bad I have nothing to show for it! "

    " Good concept but hard to implement. "
