"Full of useful information for everyone, from the person who needs simply to clean a messy desk to the person requiring a whole new approach to life." (Library Journal Starred Review)
I expected a book that gives me tips about decluttering my life,but instead I got this endless self praise of the author who is telling anecdotes over anecdotes from her life as a professional home organizer.
All this soul searching, blaming your parents and journaling is rather time consuming and depressing and the advice the author gives is flat and superficial (I.e you need a calendar to remember your appointments ) I caught myself jumping forward in the first chapters in order not to waist my precious time with yet another story of her practice or more platitudes. Sorry,but this book will go on the "discard" stack.
I don't know.
Cut the crap out. I have been listening for an hour and do not have one useful, practical idea for organizing all my stuff.
Disappointment. Nice lady, but this book is all fluff, and philosophizing, and listening to this lady crap on forever. This lady is the Robert Kiyosaki of getting organized. She is like telling us how wonderful it is going to be once we get organized, and and she is talking about zen, and telling us how to say 'no', and having us blame our parents because we are messy, or maybe we are doing it to get revenge on our mom and all of this crap, and just on, and on, and on. Was she paid by the word for this book? I have never heard so many words spoken about nothing since the last time I watched the Home Shopping Network.
I really enjoyed listening through the year of organizing ideas. I was able to apply many of them immediately and rethink several of my existing systems. Excellent read I would recommend to anyone looking to get themselves in order.
Regina is a pleasure to listen to. She offered many solutions on how to get your home organized. She brings a vast experience and tried and true methods to implementing organization. I really enjoyed listening to her calming voice.
