Useful tips for organizing your home and your life for the impending arrival of a baby and one year beyond. Some chapters were less relevant to my life or covered things that I was already doing. Many chapters did provide food for thought on things that would be coming down the pike. At times there were recommendations to purchase expensive organization gadgets or other services that I think are wholly unnecessary, but overall I did learn something and at least have some ideas about what I'd lik...more
When I picked up this book, I didn't realize that it was written by a professional organizer who would expect that you were as anticlutter(this woman actually takes her coffeemaker in and out of a cabinet every morning) and as capable of spending lots of money on organizational products as her typical clients.

Lots of good tips for a new mom.
I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. The book contained lots of helpful advice and information on what to do and expect when pregnant and when baby comes home. Although not all of the advice was useful for my lifestyle, there was plenty of helpful advice for me!
