This book had some fantastic tips in it! My favorite is the quick way to get some cleaning done by setting aside 10 minutes and getting one box for stuff to put away somewhere else, one box for stuff that needs to be filed or stored, one box of stuff to give to charity, and a bag for garbage. Set your timer for 10-minutes and just do as much as you can in an area. When the time's up, then go put away the box of stuff to put away and you've made some major progress. There are some great cleaning tips, along with some simple recipes for cleaners that are non-toxic and super cheap to make! I also now have a file drawer near the door so that I can sort, file, pay bills, and write letters right when I need to. I've eliminated the HUGE pile of papers to file and instead just file them as soon as I open the letter or pay the bill. Just great. I recommend this book for folks that need a little common sense motivation to cut your clutter and get a little more organized. It'll save you time in the long run! ( )

Similar to a lot of this type of book, but has very nice illustrations and well-done by the "CEO" of OrganizedHome.com. ( )
