This is agreat book for people that have organization issues! As I looked over this VERY quick read.... all I kept thinking is do I just know alot or are there people who just haven't a clue as to where to begin. Most of the ideas in this book I already employ and I can say.... without a doubt.... they work! The real key is to get moving!

This book is simple, straight-forward, and to the point. It would be so easy for anyone to follow. I liked its some-what humorous tone and the fact that it is all just common sense.

I for one am anything but organized. I have read all kinds of organization books and websites. I did find some tips in the book that I am able to put in place. It is always nice to pick up a tip or two. The chapter on creating errand / chore charts was great!!

I was able to sit and read this in one sitting - which mak

This book seems to be a collection of 15 blogs gathered together to promote Leigh's newsletter. If you understand that, then you'll understand why the material feels so slight. I was hoping for a more detailed game plan to help me tackle my home. What I got was general information that is somewhat helpful, but short on details. Telling us to start with our bedroom for the first month because it will make us feel good is not quite the detail I needed. Each month needed a dedicated chapter to help ...more

I know 2 stars is not a great rating but giving a 5 is very rare for me so everything gets pushed back. And let's face it, no book about organizing or cleaning or saving space should ever get more than a 3. Considering all that, 2 is not bad. The lady cuts to the chase which is great for reference, but makes reading the entire book get old at least half way through. It took me three times as long to read the second half as it did the first half. There are a decent number of ideas that should hel ...more

I am a neat freak! I hate a dirty house and I even have this bad habit of cleaning when I go over to friends and family members’ houses. Now I came across the back room in my basement, and this is where my kids throw all of their sports stuff and clothes that don’t fit, and anything else they can think of. It was a mess and it was driving me nuts. So I thought I would Google new ways to organize and I came across this book. All of the tips are easy to accomplish and make a huge difference in you ...more
It was a quick read but it would've been nice if more images/examples were added to prove the theory. There's nothing in this book that many people did not know already. I got this book for free, some might have spent something to get a copy but there are websites that actually offer the same information at no cost with many different interesting examples that are self- explanatory and can actually provide more information better than this book.

I wasn’t expecting a whole lot from this book but I was pleasantly surprised. I recently moved and had no idea where to start with organizing my new place. Two weeks into it and I still had boxes scattered about. After going through this book I got a lot of great ideas and now I have a neat and organized home. This book is a great read, I have already told a few friends about it.

Love the Simple Stick Rule: "You won’t be beating yourself or anything with this rule! The rule is this: you have to promise yourself that you won’t buy anything new until you’ve removed all types of clutter from your house. (That means clothes, treats and other luxuries – not food!) You’ll save money in the process and avoid cluttering areas with items that you really don’t need."
Dani Star
I hate cleaning and organizing anything, my friend showed me this book as kind of a kick in the pants, and I am glad she did. This little book is very easy to read and follow, it has definitely made an impact in the rooms I have totally revamped. I highly recommend this book to anyone who just needs a little shove into the de-cluttering world.
Cassandra Hawkins-Wilson
Reading this book on my kindle, I enjoyed the simple layout of the text. Some of the tips were extremely helpful. I became lost within the text during the discussion of the chalkboard and Post-it notes. This book is a good book for beginners. I think the book needed to elaborate more.
C.E. Hart
An easy, quick read. Some tips are helpful, but many are (to me) common sense. But, in the author's defense, I am already an organizational freak. ;)

The book has nice illustrations and easy to follow remedies to de-clutter your home.
Redundant. I didn't find this book helpful. It was mostly geared toward families with children and I don't have children. Also much of the advice I've heard or read before.
It didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know, but I guess that for those who are totally green on the subject it could be a useful place to start.
Lori Bigby
The book had lots of good tips. There are several that I will implement right away. Pretty easy to read, less easy to do!
Scott Whitney
This book has some great ideas about cutting the clutter in the home. I liked the idea of the three tier system.
Provided very little info that I didn't already know. Did nothing to motivate me.
This book makes getting organized easy and simple. It's a must read!
I liked that it was short. Kind of basic, but it was free on Kindle.
Charlene Intriago
A "freebie" Kindle book . . . it had some good suggestions.
