Are you eager to make a change but unsure what’s next?

Organizing works when you know where you’re going but don’t know how to get there. But sometimes organizing isn’t enough. When you’re eager to make a change in your life but are unsure of your new destination, you need to SHED.

Expert organizer and New York Times bestselling author Julie Morgenstern has developed the four-step SHED plan to help you get unstuck from the defunct, obsolete objects and obligations preventing you from living a richer, more meaningful life. SHED picks up where other organizing processes leave off—helping you purge the physical and behavioral clutter holding you back so you can finally create real change in your life.

But it’s not just about throwing things away! The SHED process is more about what comes before and after you heave the clutter so that the changes you make really stick in the long term. 

Whether you’re facing a move, a promotion, an empty nest, a marriage, divorce, or retirement, When Organizing Isn’t Enough provides a practical, transformative plan for positively managing change in every aspect of your life.

Listener Reviews

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Adrienne | 2/13/2014

    " This is a good book and the author has a lot of great insights, advice, and wisdom; however, I thought the first half of the book was more helpful than the second half of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Cindy | 2/3/2014

    " While I appreciated Morgenstern's "Organizing from the Inside Out," this one was a bit to system's oriented. It is a personal preference, but I am not big on systems with acronyms! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Terri | 2/3/2014

    " A little too "fluffy" for me...more involved with the endless process of the handy little acronym than actually getting down to the heart of it all. Maybe I'm just further along than I give myself credit for? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Paula | 1/24/2014

    " I don't know if it's because this book arrived in my life at THE most perfect time possible, but it's one of those books that is truly helping me to change my life. I've been feeling almost desperate to SHED a lot of stuff - feeling like I am drowning in my STUFF - and suddenly this book pops into my life with an easy-to-follow but also psychologically-oriented book on how to do exactly what I need to be doing right now. I've already started over at the beginning. "
