My only problem with this book was when it got buried under all my clutter. Seriously though it has some very good basic suggestions of making the most of available space, finding storage space you may not have thought of and setting up preventative measures. Yes it includes what to do with National Geographics. In other words full of very specific advice.
This book has a lot of smart, practical tips on how to keep down the clutter in your home. Get busy and organize that paper, closet, drawer, spices, photos, collections and BOOK SHELF? Delve into why you collect all of this stuff in the first place.
This has to be one of the BEST and MOST MOTIVATING books I have ever read. This is a short, easy-to-read book. I read it in one day. This author REALLY UNDERSTANDS the problem of people like me who are "pack-rats," and WHY we are pack-rats. He tackles the problem from this point of view.
The very next day, after reading the book, I was able to organize my entire office. I am now involved in packing for a home move, and for the first time in years, I am making progress on knowing what to save, and what to get rid of. This book helped me TREMENDOUSLY in making these decisions. And it provides precise, practical suggestions for how to go about it step-by-step, so that you get rid of the problem of being entirely overwhelmed and not knowing where to start.
If clutter is disturbing your life, then THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU.
