I had high hopes for this book when I saw the title. I had assumed that it would have a solid working timeline with plenty of new, useful and practical ideas for getting things around the home sorted out and organized. Unfortunately it didn't meet my expectations.
The first chapter is entitled "Your 12 Month Home Organizing Guide" which echoes the title of the book. It does mention a month-to-month schedule for attacking the problem, but not much more than that. Only a short paragraph or two is assigned to each room or area of the house and doesn't go into much more than the always cited "three piles" method of sorting, labeling objects, or buying additional storage items.
There simply isn't anything new and what is there is very simplistic. Do you really need to schedule an entire month just to declutter and organize the master bathroom, assuming your house has one? And if following the author's advice your fourth month of decluttering will be to assess what you've done so far and the eighth month will be to used to relax. Sure, if you say so.
Other chapters cover subject such as getting your family and children organized, clutter killers, organization tools, and so on. Most of the author's systems seem to be centered on sticky notes, corkboards, and poster-sized calendars.
Her storage solutions depend for the most part on special purpose or dual purpose furniture with storage areas such as ottomans or coffee tables, plastic bins, under bed storage boxes, and hanging storage options. Additional storage suggestions are held captive in the author's other book which she recommends you buy.
The author has included links to her website for the downloading of her cleaning checklists.
There are other more original and comprehensive books available on the subjects of decluttering and household organization. Not recommended.
