Organizing Junkie’s Book Review & Giveaway!  *closed*

Clutter Rehab by Laura Wittmann

clutter rehab

I love Laura! I’m an Organizing Junkie was the first organizing blog I ever saw when I first started looking at blogs. Her writing is fun, easy to understand and basic. But she gets things done. She is a highly respected organizer and I think the top organizing blog (at least that I know of) out there.

She wrote a book. Yee Haw! Guess what? Her book is fun, easy to understand and basic!

She gives you “101 tips and tricks” to help you organize your home and manage your time.

Here is a page from the table of contents.

Some of them are over a page, but generally speaking they are fast and easy tips. You might have several on a page.  Considering I am working on clearing out all the winter clothes and completely going through the kids rooms right now … donation is a big word.  I like her idea of having a “donation station”.

Some of her tips are so simple, yet many people just don’t think of them.

You can find this Clutter REHAB on Amazon and it is only $10.36!  Great deal.

I would recommend this book for anyone wanting to decrease some of your clutter… just by using some smart and easy ideas.  It would also make an awesome gift for a newly married couple, a messy teenager going off to college, your “messy” friend… but, there are so many neat little tips in the book, that you don’t have to even be a disorganized person, or a messy person, or have a house full of clutter to gain valuable insight and ideas from this book.

Being short little chapters geared towards one tip each, makes it a very easy read. Something you can pick up, read a few ideas and put it back down to get the kids off to school. More than likely you will pick it up and keep reading because it’s so fun to find new ideas to make your life easier.

    This summer I am trying to make space in my small, cluttered house for baby #2. I need some ideas! I loved the ideas on creating a space for everything and using containers. I’ve been cleaning out so there is less stuff, but now I need to find containers and I think this book could really help me!

    This book would be soo useful for me. One thing that stood out in the table of contents list was the “I’m outta here” shelf.

    “Stop sorting your laundry” sounds good to me! With three girls and lots of jammies/shirts/undies…I’m so tired of trying to remember who’s is who’s! Thanks for the chance to win this book!

    We just put an offer on a new house – and I feel the relief and excitement of starting with a clean slate! I *need* this book! :) #62 – Embrace Plan B and Let Go of Perfection is something that rings true to me! I also need to learn to keep flat spaces clear! :)

  7. Denise says:

    I love the idea of photographing sentimental clutter! Especially now with the end of the school year! Instead of deciding which art projects to keep for posterity, keep for a little bit longer, or throw away, I can just photograph all of them and make a photobook with the images!

  8. Kim Ross says:

  14. Eos Mom says:

    I am ever so slowly trying to declutter my house–I would LOVE this book! At first glance, “Don’t make a system too complicated” caught my attention because my “system” for putting my kids’ toys away isn’t working, I think it might be too complicated.
