What’s A Disorganized Person To Do? by Stacey Platt

What’s A Disorganized Person To Do? by Stacey Platt is a go-to reference guide for organizing your home. You’ll learn how to organize to save time searching for items in your home and also how to make it look much better by decluttering.

Book Description
“An easy-to-read, idea-packed guide for anyone who wants to be more organized—and who doesn't?

Everyone has overflowing closets and desk drawers, countertops loaded with kitchen gadgets, and overstuffed computer desktops. We dream of getting organized—but what's a disorganized person to do? In this book, professional organizer Stacey Platt comes to the rescue with empowering ideas on putting and keeping things in order.

Like earlier titles in the series, such as the best-selling What's a Cook to Do?, this book offers easy-to-scan and access solutions to everyday aggravations: How do you keep from misplacing your cell phone or house keys? What's the best way to organize the fridge? How do you pack efficiently for a trip? This user-friendly book, illustrated with stylish, full-color photography, is up-to-date on the latest technologies for organizing everything from music to family photos.

Here are hundreds of ingenious solutions for gaining control of clutter so you can live happily in your space. There are quick solutions as well as one-hour projects—from organizing your emails so you can find your passwords to sorting the area under the bathroom sink—that readers can tackle, one weekend at a time, with big payoffs. From the kitchen to the home office, the bedroom closet to the car, this thoughtful guide will help readers carve out more space and more time.” – What’s A Disorganized Person To Do?

My Thoughts
What’s A Disorganized Person To Do? is a seriously organized book about organizing. It is neatly divided into categories to show (and explain) how to organize just about every aspect of your home. If you’ve ever spent time searching for a shoe, car keys, an earring, an old bill, or any of the other numerous things that clutter piles on top of, this is the book for you!

I consider myself to be highly organized, but Stacey Platt really takes it to the next level. This is one seriously organized woman and her very helpful tips can really guide everyone to making their life more organized. The book contains 317 tips. Even if you only use 17 of these tips, I bet you will see a significant change, and then probably want to use more of her tips to help you on the path to being more organized.

Some of my favorite sections include how to organize a bathroom, the bedrooms, and of course the closet. I can’t quite make mine look like her examples in any of the cases, but for what I have to work with I think I’ve managed to stay pretty organized. I know that these are huge trouble spots for many people, and I will be sharing these tips (and the book) with those who need a little guidance on decluttering their life too.

I highly recommend this book to everyone who needs to declutter and organize their life!
