My mother borrowed this book from a friend of hers and subsequently lent it to me; hoping that, maybe, this would be the breakthrough to getting and keeping my room clean and organized once and for all. I have always been a disorganized person, however that didn't mean I wanted to stay that way. To be fair, I really am only disorganized in one aspect of my life- my room. That made the chapter regarding how to organize and maintain your bedroom the most intriguing part of the book.

I loved this bo

I picked this up at a library sale since it was cheap, seemed easy enough to understand and because I'm soooo disorganized. It was only a few weeks ago when I lost my wallet that I decided it was time to get serious about getting my act together and start reading this book! And I have to say I absolutely LOVED it!! The book teaches you some valuable techniques to break down even the toughest messes with simple steps. Since I have no organizational skills almost every page and every tip was like ...more

I was given this book about 7 years ago, when I was still a teenager. I put it aside and didn't really think about it again, though I carted it through seven different moves since then. The other day, I decided to pick it up and I'm really glad I did.

Though it is obviously targeted at teenagers (there is an adult version), there was a lot of really helpful information in the book, that could easily be extrapolated to less "teeny" situations and difficulties. The ideas that are presented are univ

I absolutely loved this book. I read it as a teenager and the principles have stuck with me through life.

My favourite thing about the book is... actually the whole point of the book. The idea that the best type of organising is to do with YOU, not what your friends think is the best way, or your parents or whoever. It's about the way you think, what comes to mind first for YOU when you are looking for something. Whether you like things colour-coded and boxed, or in piles on the floor. It doesn'

Ok, so I must admit that I’m a bit of a neat freak, totally interested in topics of all things organization. So, my rating may be biased. I imagine a teen who is forced to read this by a parent or guardian might not find it so fascinating. However, I think the authors took reluctant readers into account. The layout of the book is interesting with a nice flow of picture, text, and charts. The tone of voice wasn’t preachy or overly parental, more of a friend. The authors (a mother and daughter tea ...more

My first forays into the world of books about organization, decent in its contents while simultaneously creating a distinctly juvenile impression. Even when I was in middle school I thought the illustrations were sub-par. However, It imparts a decent amount of wisdom with the SPACE method of organizing, which has created a lasting impression. Everything else has been replaced with other information that I preferred from other books. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up was exceedingly useful wh ...more

Organizing from the inside out for teens By Julie Morgenstern and Jessi Morgenstern-Colón
214 pages

This is a great way for those un-organized kids to become clean. The book has simple fun, and really easy ways to make space and still have a nice looking room. From little baskets, a dresser, or book shelf, this book has all the ways in the world for a teen to put all their stuff away but still have a fun room. Colorful labels help, and so do drawer dividers. The three parts of this book

IF i could team this book up with: Where's My Stuff?: The Ultimate Teen Organizing Guide By samantha moss.
Then this book would be golden, because wheres my stuff isnt as thick but fills in the holes that this book leaves, i purchased this book hoping for a little more info into organizing, and though outdated, it really helps!
A little old for my elementary student (well, obviously, in the title it says "For Teens"), but even I gleaned a few tips and techniques from it. I think it will definitely be a worthwhile purchase for my kids when they're older--it's nicely geared to the specifics of teenage life.

Scanned through some parts to preview for my daughter. Think it will be motivating and life-changing for her if she reads it. Makes organizing easy to work into teen life by showing how they will LIKE being organized!
This book would probably appeal to teens, but it's too basic and beginner for me.

Great book. Hasn't worked so far. Needs a willing participant. ;)
