Library Journal Review

Whether one is a tosser, an accumulator, or a concealer, this book contains a wealth of advice on how to control household clutter. Beginning with a system of quantifying, unloading, isolating, containing, and keeping it up (QUICK), the book examines each room of the house and identifies common problems, such as too many loose recipes or jewelry jumble. It then offers specific, practical solutions, with advice from real people on how they keep organized. Lists of resources for storage products and organizations accepting household items for donation are also given. Similar to Julie Morgenstern's Organizing from the Inside Out, this book will be an excellent purchase for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010.
