Imagine an avid Pinterest user's "Organize" board put into book form, and this is it. It's a collection of tips and techniques for organizing your home, room by room. As other reviewers have said, it's not all that original. If you're already a very organized person, or a collector of these types of books, you won't find it very helpful. But as a natural piler with disorganized tendencies, I found it to be very helpful. Although, it could be an advertisement for The Container Store. But I think it comes down to knowing yourself and what you will keep up with. I don't think every closet, shelf, bin, tray, divider, rack, or peg board is necessary for every person, and I do not believe that you have to spend a lot of money on those things in order to be organized. Take Platt's example of the fork...forks go with forks. They have a place, you know where they go. After a fork has been used and washed and dried you put it back with the other forks. It doesn't have to be an expensive system in a fancy drawer. While not every tip is appropriate or useful for me, as I read from cover to cover I often found myself thinking, "That's a good idea."
