I love to organize. To clean, even.
But then, the same week I received a copy of Kathi's new book, my sweet husband lost his house keys three times. He could never remember the last really sensible place he left them.
His dresser was so covered in stuff, he couldn't see the keys. Ditto with his desk.
Then I looked over at my dresser. School projects, mother's day cards, a package of Pokemon trading cards that had been confiscated, a large eraser, a sock, and lots and lots of jewelry that I hadn't yet put back in my super-organized jewelry cabinet.
Later that day I was trying to fix dinner, but couldn't find enough work space because the counter was covered in vitamins, homework, receipts and bills, stray stickers, several band-aids, LEGOs and the cat brush. Eww. Why is that in my kitchen?!
The living room - pretty much the same. Shoes and socks especially are making like rabbits all over the house...they are multiplying in every room.
When did I get so un-organized?!
So I started reading...
Once again Kathi breaks challenging goals into bite-sized, achievable nibbles, each one sweetened with her authentic humor and personal stories. How can you not love Kathi? Whatever it is you're going through, she's been there.
By the end of Memorial Day weekend, my kitchen looked like a kitchen again, I have found the top of both our bedroom dressers, and well, the office...the office is a big hairy audacious goal that I now know how to take on.
If you have stress, and we all have stress, then you probably have a little mess in your lives, too. This book is well worth your time - Kathi's grace and humor make tackling the un-fun task of getting organized entertaining and fun.

I'm in awe of both The Get Yourself Organized Project and author Kathi Lipp. This is the MOST comprehensive but LEAST scary book I've ever read about overhauling your life and getting it into an organized, manageable, doable form. Kathi covers it all in just 200 pages--from a warm and friendly pep talk at the beginning ("Eight Basic rules to Get Yourself Organized" and a "Quick-Start Guide") to projects for your home, family, and personal life. There's something for everyone. Need to organize your purse? Car? Closet? Done. Struggle with getting kids to do their chores? Got it. Looking for some tried and true ways to pack for trips? It's here. Meal planning and grocery shopping (two chores that are my nemesis)? Bingo. I love the way the book is organized into 21 separate projects so that you can tackle them in 21 weeks or even 21 days....or just pick and choose the organizing projects that you need. I'm going to start with the most cluttered area in my house--the garage (p. 105). It's a scary place full of spiders and dusty boxes but with Kathi's help and detailed, step-by-step instructions and supply list, I have the confidence and tools I need to get started...and then finish the job.

Kathi Lipp's new project book really is "steps to less mess and stress". In 21 days, you will have your house (bedrooms, office, kitchen), your family (laundry, meal planning, kid's chores) and your personal life (schedule, computer, wardrobe) under control!
Kathi Lipp is amazing, funny and so great at breaking things down in to simple steps (like I need!).
I love this book!

This is a fantastic book written with people like me in mind (you know, people who would like to be organized but don't think a little mess is the end of the world because there are things more important in life). Kathi Lipp has a no-nonsense writing style: funny, to the point, very sincere and candid. She does not pretend to be an expert, a Martha Stewart type. She just knows what the daily life of the average family looks like and gives us pointers on how to make it less messy based on her own experiences and organizational methods, as well as with the help of a few, very clever friends.
The goal is not to have a picture perfect home cut out from a magazine. The goal is to have a home organized around what works for you and your family; it has to work for you instead of you having to work hard to be organized. And we are not talking about your house only, no. Mrs. Lipp sets out to help us organize our life, from the basics (the living room, the bedroom and bathroom) to the more complicated (schedules, paperwork) and even the car. But again, she does all this not with a I-know-more-than-you attitude, but with the attitude of a friend who has been through the same thing and wants to share with you what works for her.
To be completely honest, we have a very messy home, and we've tried to make it better, but every clutter book out there seems to be written in a foreign language for us. Now, we have a space that looks good and works for us. This book made all the difference. The only thing that I didn't love about it was the use of so many plastic bins. I get that they are great (I use them, too), but if I were to use as many as were suggested here we would have very little free space. But we came up with other solutions, which in the end is what the author expects and encourages us to do.
