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.
