Book Review: The Staying Organized Survival Guide

Learn To STAY ORGANIZED Without Even Thinking About It

Give me 15 minutes a day for 30 days and I'll show you how to STAY organized

Do you get home from work to be greeted by clutter central? Are you hiding an ugly mess behind closed doors and drawers? Are you frustrated when you can't find what you need when you need it? Are you embarrassed by the disorganization when an unexpected visitor drops by?

You may have tried to get organized. You may even have succeeded with a mad purge one weekend. But if it all unravels after a few days or weeks, you need to try something different. 

Your Excuses:

I don't know how to organize everything perfectly. 

So don't - I give you permission to organize imperfectly and to do anything rather than nothing.

I don't have the time to make a difference. 

Large chunks of time are not required, just 15 minutes a day.

I don't know where to start. 

Pick anywhere - it doesn't matter. Follow my 'hot spot' trail for a super fast approach to getting started.

I've got no money to get organized. 

You don't need any. Stop window-shopping for storage bins and organizers and take action instead.

I'm overwhelmed. I'll never get it all done. 

No, you won't, but getting organized is a journey, not a destination. With my 15 minutes a day system, you will make progress and that is what you should be aiming for.

The Solution:

Follow 'The Staying Organized Survival Guide: Organizing Your Home & Getting Rid Of Clutter In Just 15 Minutes A Day' to get the organizing habit!

It will stir you into action with plenty of 'kick start tasks' to set you on the path towards maintainable home organization.
  • Spend 15 minutes per day for just 30 days - that doesn't sound too bad does it?

  • Implement the simple, but crucial, techniques to establish organizing as a habit.
