Meh! Nothing new here.

Meh! It's ok, but I wouldn't read it again. I prefer Jessica Mark's book on time management; "Time Management for Entrepeneurs".

This book feels like a run down of Pinterest hacks, without going into detail about how a certain tip has felt life changing. Nothing new here.

If you're looking for a book about organizing, I would say to check out Cassandra Aarson's books, otherwise known as Clutterbug.

Could be a woman's day or red book 3 page article.

I don't like to write a rude review. But this was a waste of money. Mostly I felt the tips to repurpose were tacky (ice tray to store your paper clips and thumb tacks, plastic storage containers under your bed, under your dresser, and shelves with milk crates and box storage containers on every shelf. Honestly this is aost where I am. And I am trying to find peace away from my clutter. Not keep it.

A good summary of the basics

It covers a lot in just an hour. It's really just a run down of the basics, but they're good tips. There were even a few tips that were new to me.

Very helpful; Even for a pack rat.

Great guidelines to organize your home and life.
I really appreciate this audiobook and will listen to it when I begin my home de-clutter process.

Basic but Good

This Audiobook is basic when it comes to this topic. I've read a number of titles on this topic and this one is very minimal. However, I enjoyed it as a reinforcement since I have a hard time with clutter/organizing.
Give it a go!

Great place to start if looking for basics

If you've spent any time on Pinterest or have read articles on organization in a magazine this will be a full review of what you already know. If you have no idea where to start and need motivation to organize your organizing goals this is the right start for you.

Decluttering book

Extremely short book that assumes that everyone wants to hide or get rid of all of their possessions. This is only one organizing style and makes many people uncomfortable. Not everyone can be Marie Kondo.

Narrator is very stilted, but this may have been the writing style. The book sounded like a series of lists with short commentary.

It’s okay

There are some really odd suggestions like using an ice cube tray as an office organizer or using a utensils tray for various hair accessories. Personally, I prefer the book “Goodbye, Things”
