Publisher's Summary

Most organizational books on the market profess to have a one-size-fits-all solution to home organization.

Common anthems are to: go paperless, get rid of everything that doesn't spark joy, and capsulize your wardrobe. While some find success using these methods, the majority of American women are facing decades of delayed decisions piled high in unmarked boxes and shoved in storage rooms bursting at the seams. Fifteen-minute-a-day organization tips and color coordinated plastic boxes are no match for the memories and clutter contained in those rooms.

What is needed is a complete mindset shift. It's time to look at home organization in a whole new way. Each phase of a woman's life brings unique organizational challenges and emotional clutter to tackle. Looking at a women's life as a journey through four distinct phases of life provides a framework to anchor basic organization principals.

"This is the home organization book that will make the rest of the books in your collection make sense." - Lisa Woodruff, Professional Organizer and Productivity Expert.

As a professional organizer and productivity specialist, Lisa Woodruff has helped hundreds of women in Cincinnati, Ohio and thousands of women around the world, get their homes organized and keep them that way. Her book The Mindset of Organization encourages women to take back their homes one phase at a time. Find out more at www.organize365.com/mindset

    "Lisa has my heart! Must read"

    I loved how this book does not look at organization as a one size fits all issue. I love the different stages of life and how she allows decide where you are.
    I love each method and most of all I love her optimism and views through out the book. I have begun my Sunday basket and so far, I love it.

    "Nice lady - minimal content"

    Most of this book is an autobiography
    & she seems like a nice lady. But, I was looking for real strategies. She gives a few tips but I had already learned those after scanning Pinterest for 15 minutes.

    "The New Bible for Organization Junkies"

    The writing and pleasant narration is very well-done. The content is inspiring, offering lots of ideas for women (and men) in different stages of life. Ms. Woodruff explains the 'why and how' of different organizational approaches for specific groups. This book is very useful, very interesting, and very different. Highly recommend!

    "Amazing"

    Seriously - this is the EIGHTH book I've read in the last month on organization and the BEST. It's the only one that talked about generation mind frames with regards to our clutter and our stuff. I like to understand WHY as well as HOW. Definitely a 5 star. Next I'm going to get the app and get to work! Thanks Lisa!

    "Finally Free"

    I have been a fan of Lisa, finding her through her podcast, for about 2 years. She is a teacher and teaches those of us who thought we could never get organized how to do it step by step. My life is more peaceful, productive and organized thanks to her. This book is funny and practical

    Story
    "Mindset of Organization"
    Would you try another book from Lisa K. Woodruff and/or Lisa Woodruff?

    I think the title is misleading. She described the 4 stages of life and how people of different generations save things and newer generations do not want all the clutter of old or heirloom furniture and other things. I LOVED the chapter on children and their rooms, and who wants to keep things. For example, if a mother wants to keep a doll and the child is ready for it to move on, then the parent has to store the item in her portion of the house. That makes sense and it was the best part of the book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was too much story and not enough advice and motivation... And a bit depressing talking about growing old and parents passing.
