If you’ve picked up this book, you want to reduce the clutter in your home, organize what’s left, and keep it that way. But does the sheer scope of the project give you an anxiety attack? Don’t let fear stop you! Organizing and time management experts Sandra Felton and Marsha Sims show you how, with the right game plan and a healthy dose of adrenaline, you’re just 5 days from your goal.
With their proven team-based approach, even the most overwhelming de-cluttering job becomes doable. Section one shows you how to de-clutter, with each day of the week focused on one reachable goal. Section two shows you how to cultivate time-tested habits that keep your house in the clean, well-ordered state you’ve just achieved. You’ll even learn how to deal with common obstacles such as •filing •storage needs •health issues •space restrictions •the car •even family sabotage!
So what are you waiting for? The home of your dreams is just a week away.
Who doesn't struggle with keeping up with all involved in keeping an organized, clean, and happy home? I personally struggle with all the paperwork that stockpiles weekly. This includes school information, bills, everyday mail, my favorite magazines and recipes. One of my downfalls is seeing something in a magazine or online that I want to save for (maybe) future use. I'm old-school and like an actual hard-copy available, so needless to say this adds to my clutter.
I also have a couple good points (redeeming myself).. I need to clean my kitchen every evening and do general pickup of our home. I'm not a happy person if I wake up and start my day with a mess. I also actually like doing laundry, and this definitely helps out with three girls in sports.
Whether we are blessed with great habits from the get-go or are in need of a jump start, this "tool" will optimize our time and cleaning. Don't let that scare you! Both Sandra and Marsha provide us with clutter buster tips, and mild daily adjustments that empower!
One of the entries regarding cleaning the garage immediately caught my eye. This is a huge obstacle facing our family and needs to be dealt with soon. Keywords to remember.. Consistent and Organized. I know we'll accomplish this!
I luv how the Authors give us a practical approach that actually works and is something we can stick with. Here's to a Beautiful Home!
