Easy formula to follow.
It motivated me.
I have tried a lot of self help books to get organized. This one is easy to follow and very helpful. My husband loves that I am getting my house so organized!!

Very basic stuff good for a teenager not realy mature advice i was disappointed
Thought it would be deeper
I was really looking forward to someone helping me organize my stuff. What I didn't expect is that this was more about getting rid of your hoarder status and all the "trash" that comes with it. I couldn't get through more than the first few chapters. I felt like he was screaming at me, belittling me and chiding me like a child. He was not talking to someone who just wanted to organize her house, his audience is something beyond simple organization of things.Maybe if I read the book, I'd appreciate it more and actually get to Chapter 4. Just couldn't do it with him in my ear.
Change the tone of his narration.
Too in my face.
It covers what I have been struggling with, and family couldn't teach. And I've benefited a lot from it. By the finish of the book I'm so much more confident about my papers, clothes, ... stuff. Life seems manageable again.
I suggest the audio and following along bin the soft cover book available on amazon.lessons we thought we knew, thought that was obvious isn't. I really appreciate the helpful ideas and I can refer back to my book and notes. listening is like having a best friend get your life organized.
The two main points of the book are exceptional, but they are crowded in this rant-full book. There was much time spent on points that was not pertinent to the main objective.
this book was easy to follow and comprehensive for all area of life I'm so excited about finally being able to put things in a place where I can find them when I need them like with like and same with same I like that it makes it work for me that's why I'm so very happy that someone has finally broken it down to make it simple enough that even someone as unorganized as I am in find use out of it daily
I am a very organized person but I learned so much from Andrew Mellen's book!! Having a blast "unstuffing" my home!! Great to know that the old hat on the top of the closet is just an old hat - it is not your grandfather!! Yes, the mantras of the book are "Like with Like" and "everything has a home with its brothers and sisters" - Even if you are totally organized and really OCD - you will love, love, love this book.
