I really enjoyed this one. Tons of great pictures, easy-to-read short chapters, and practical advice. Maria certainly made me want to get organized! I loved the sample workout, the organizational tips, and other basic advice.

My only issue is her lack of awareness on the I'm-just-an-everygirl topic. I would say that calling herself an "everygirl" is a stretch. Yes, she understands the value of a dollar and exemplifies the DIY mentality, but when she talks about budgeting and then shows picture after picture of her DIY renovated mansion--there is a disconnect. Many people would really have to stretch their budget just to afford a few of the IKEA closet pieces she recommends, let alone purchase organizers for their entire house.

I guess what I'm getting at, is if she's an everygirl--I'll take it! It's not my everygirl reality, but that's okay too! It's fun to dream!
