Read in November, 2010

So I didn't realize, when I picked this book up at the library, that it is for people with ADD. So imagine my initial skepticism, then alarm, then giddy delight at seeing my very house-- nay, my very SELF-- described on every page.

The utensils fornicating in the jammed drawer! The avalanche of mismatched tupperware and yogurt containers raining upon the head of any who dares open the cupboard! The stacks and duplicates of Things saved just in case!

The author's solutions are fantastically practical and user-friendly. Basically 1. Reduce inventory via BRUTAL purging and 2. have a place for everything and 3. minimize steps. Take lids off of bins, take doors off of cupboards, take toilet paper rolls off of spring-loaded booby traps. Also, establish routines, and have realistic expectations.

And I am quite happy to know that I am not hopelessly disorganized, lazy, or slack-jawed. I just have ADD! Yaaaaaaay!!!!!!!
