I don't believe I've ever read such an unhelpful organizing book. She takes the time to explain why you are disorganized, and HOW to get organized.

I don't believe I've ever read such an unhelpful organizing book. Much of the book is spent on describing the assumed state of the problem, rather than on offering solutions to the problem. She explains how to change your thinking to help you change your habits. Unfortunately, I expected more of that from this book.

This way you don’t think you have more time than you really d. Pinsky asks clients to pick one or two indulgences, such as books, shoes or music, and pare down the rest.

This way you don’t think you have more time than you really do. 7. Sort items using a five-box method. The more stuff you have, the harder it is to get and stay organized, because there’s less space and more laundry, more dishes and more to clean. As Tuckman said, At some point, it becomes impossible - you can’t organize 10 gallons of water into a 5-gallon bucket. For instance, do you really need a cabinet filled with Tupperware?

Taking the time and effort to develop a systematic way of organizing your papers can result in a lot less stress and hassle in your life. You don’t want your filing system to be more stressful than the stress it’s supposed to alleviate. Try the following as you create your filing system: Start simple: Come up with a filing system that’s relatively easy to use. Be colorful: Files of different colors, or tabs and labels of different colors can not only turn your filing system into a work of art but also make it easier to find different subjects and interests

I don't believe I've ever read such an unhelpful organizing book. Much of the book is spent on describing the assumed state of the problem, rather than on offering solutions to the problem. (Do I really need half a chapter to tell me that my kitchen is disorganized? If I didn't already know that, why was I reading the kitchen chapter?) The remainder of the "stuff" organization chapters (as opposed to the time management chapters in the first section of the book) consists of lists of tips. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these tips are things that most of us could have figured out on our own. "Write down what you're running out of BEFORE you run out of it." We don't necessarily all DO this, but I don't think we needed help coming up with the concept. Moreover, most of the methods the author recommends will only work well for a small segment of the population - that is, those who don't actually struggle with disorganization but who have simply not gotten around to getting organized before. For example, the method given for organizing a room is to dump EVERYTHING into the middle of the room, from all of the drawers, shelves, etc., and start from there. For some people, this may work great. For many of us, it would result in being immediately overwhelmed, crashing and burning when barely into the project, ending up with a much larger mess than what we started with, and, possibly, giving up on any further attempts to get organized.

Besides the lack of helpful instruction offered, I did not care for the author's tone/attitude. The entire thing - especially the first section - made me feel as though I was constantly being beaten over the head. The author continually railed against the "excuses" I was supposedly making for not getting organized and why I needed to just suck it up and do it. Well, contrary to the author's perception, I had every intent of "sucking it up" and doing the job - that's why I bought the book and was reading it. She also operates on the assumption that everyone has loads of disposable cash lying around and that everyone's lifestyle is - or should be - like hers. ("When have you ever used more than one paper bag in a month?" How about when we had the newspaper delivered every day and we used paper bags for holding the newspapers and taking them to the recycling point? Does the author truly believe that NOBODY, ANYWHERE has a use for more than one paper bag per month?) She recommends paying someone else to do nearly every imaginable task, and her not-so-creative solutions to most organizing problems are to just "buy such-and-such a gizmo." If I HAD plenty of money to buy every organizing gizmo on the market, I WOULD NOT BE DISORGANIZED in the first place.

Finally, she routinely discourages respect for the other people in our lives. If someone is late for dinner, she says don't heat up his dinner, because his own poor time management is not your problem. So if my hard-working husband is late for dinner because a job took longer than anticipated I should leave him to fend for himself because it's technically "not my problem"?

I would skip this book, in favor of others whose authors are a little more knowledgeable AND gracious.

I thought I was purchasing a brand new book, but when I received the book, there were notes from where someone else owned the book and a receipt left inside the book.

The book is excellent! It is different from other organizational books because it gives practical advice that can be done when you don't have the time. Stephanie (Culp, the author) talks to you in the book as if she knows you. She admits her own mistakes and helps you avoid them. I used the 5-Step Plan at home and work and it has really helped. I got the book from the Library but plan to purchase it for my personal library. Now that's a good book!

If you want to be told that you are a procrastinator and that you need to make a schedule to find the time to get organized than this book is for you. But if you are truly disorganized, sitting down and making a schedule is the last thing you will find the motivation to do. The author tells you,"don't procrastinate and get organized, set goals and make a schedule," but she doesn't offer any real techniques to help, and she attributes laziness to messiness. I recommend

you read, "The New Messies Manual," by Sandra Felton. She takes the time to explain why you are disorganized, and HOW to get organized. She explains how to change your thinking to help you change your habits. Unfortunately, I expected more of that from this book. It is a waste of money and very dissapointing.
