really liked it
bookshelves: arc, 2018-read

This had a lot of good information about organizing and ways to make organizing your house, your finances, and other parts of your life work for you. The author has her own organizing business and teaches classes on how to organize and gave lots of real life examples (while still maintaining her clients privacy). There are lots of tips that I can implement in my own life. I liked that she broke it down by room and gave examples on how to make it work for your family because no family has the same organizing needs.

However, there were also some points in the book where she repeated the same information over again, which was to emphasize it’s importance, but it also came across as suggesting that the reader didn’t realize it’s importance after the first time or two it was mentioned. Some of the later sections of the book also came across as a bit judgemental. I also feel that the excerpt for one of her other books was inappropriate to add at the end of this book. I understand the benefits to the author of including an excerpt of her other work. However, the two topics are in no way related. The situation she describes in her excerpt does also make me question her ability to make good decisions.

I would still recommend the organization aspects, especially pertaining to organizing your house, of this book to anyone who needs a little help on how to start.

I received an eARC from Hidden Gems. All opinions are my own.
