Book Giveaway!!! Organize Now! A Week-by-Week Guide to Simplify Your Space and Your Life

March 29, 2012

As most of you already now, I have on an organization tip recently. This is a result of having too much stuff. I hate clutter, whether its my closet, my books, or finance, I hate the idea of a mess. It makes me displace everyday items as a result.

I must of sent the call for help somewhere in the universe because a few weeks ago I recieved an email with the opportunity to review Organize Now! A Week-by-Week Guide to Simplify Your Space and Your Life (2010,  Betterway Home) by Jennifer Ford Berry.

It is “a week by week guide to simplify your space and life” and that it does.  It opens up with a breakdown on the hidden costs of clutter.
Its a year long planner with different tasks and goals each week starting with organizing yourself. It is then followed by organizing your papers, things, high-traffic areas (hallway closet in my case) personal spaces, storage areas, special events and routines.  Yes, it goes over EVERYTHING. The format allows the tasks to completed efficiently  and without becoming overwhelmed.

My sister and I started 2 weeks ago and love it. The book/planner breaks everything down into baby steps and a result allows you to conquer tasks that seems unrealistic before. Looking ahead we noticed a few things that might not be applicable to both of us (pregnancy), but I appreciated the genuine thoroughness of the book.

So if you need a a little help and a kick in the pants, go check out this book.  I am looking to forward to reading Organize Now! Your Money, Business & Career (2011 Betterway Home) as soon as I am done with this one.


I am giving away 1 copy to a lucky winner.

    I really need to get my kitchen in order. Things no longer have a home, and it’s so hard to find things!

    Oooh, I’d love this book, as my middle name is chaos!! 🙂 lol! While I’ve just started decluttering, I do not knwo how to organize what I have . 🙁

    The problem we have is having time to organise ourselves! We both work pretty full time and anything over we try to spend with our son(s).

    We have a lot of clutter that needs to be sorted. So I am not sure that a book on clearing up the clutter wouldn’t add to that!

    But we still need to do it – there must be quite a bit of money that could be realised.

    Woot woot! I love organizing…but I am slacking in organizing A LOT of things, specifically my make-up, my nail polishes, and my shoes. I did my closet 3 weeks ago and it felt GREAT though!

    I use a combination of Google Calendar and Tasks to keep on top of everything, but it can be really time consuming just to stay organized. The easier you can make it, the better!

      Google Calendar is my best friend.

    Sounds like a useful book. (And I love the cover!) The part I need to organize the most are my file drawers. They are a scary mess.

  • Jessica, The Debt Princess April 1, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    The part of my life that needs organized the most is my To Do list/Paper shuffling. My time management portion of my life (read: The part that is supposed to be making me money.)
