Over the last few months I’ve been doing quite a few organizational videos on my channel, and posts on my blog.
I’ve really been enjoying doing this and it has made such a difference to our everyday life.
We’ve made changes to all sorts if things, our food shop, our meal plans, storage spaces and cupboards and drawers.
So I was offered a chance to review a book, and I took up the offer as I thought it relevant to my channel and blog.
It starts with a little challenge to write down your goals and what areas of your life you’d like to focus on organizing more. Why you want to be more organized and how you vision the end result.
Next there is a quiz to help uncover your organizing style. After answering the questions, are you:
- A carefree spirit who is mostly disorganized.
- Close to being organized, but have certain disorganized behaviours.
- You are organized but with a little room for improvement.
- Or are you in organizing bliss!
We then get to the main section of the book. It is broken down into 7 chapters that focus’ on different things.
Chapter 1 The science behind organization and stress
This chapter explains how being organized can be healthier, and how it can help us stick to a budget. The benefits of planning and de cluttering and also the new trend of how to be a minimalist.
Chapter 2 Closet
This tells you how to make the most of the space you have. Hanging vs. Folding, and the bed use for all those different hangers.
Chapter 3 Bathroom
This looks at bathrooms and how we keep so many products that either we don’t use or go past their expiry date, so the first thing is a good cull. Then onto towels and linen and how to fold and store them.
Chapter 4 Kitchen
This takes a look at the hub of a lot of homes. How to store and where, and lots of useful tips. One important tip is NOT to keep a junk drawer. I need to implement this as ours is overflowing!!
Chapter 5 Travel
A look at being more organized when travelling with an emphasis on less is more. What to keep in a travel wallet, and what to have in your carry on. It also looks at how to pack and fold best for wrinkle free clothing.
Chapter 6 Books
A short chapter that I loved, should they be stored Prettily or for functionality, it’s a personal choice. Even with Kindles and the like we’ve all got books at home.
Chapter 7 Storage Room
This looks at our extra storage spaces, ours ate our garage and a cupboard under our stairs. I try hard to keep ours organized, even if I do them a couple of times a year they still get in a mess. So this chapter was helpful.
And finally in the book is a conclusion, which talks about organizing sustainability, which is of course even harder than getting organized in the first place.
I really enjoyed this book and found the tips in it really useful.
You can purchase this book on Amazon for £10.75 or for Kindle at £6.18.
See you soon
