Secrets of an Organized Mom : From the Overflowing Closets to the Chaotic Play Areas: A Room-by-Room Guide to Decluttering and Streamlining Your Home for a Happier Family
Organizing guru Barbara Reich offers a life-changing program for your life and home. Mothers can feel like life is running on a never-ending loop. Just when one problem or responsibility is overcome, another trips us up. But help is on the way: Barbara Reich has all the strategies for staying ahead of the curve-and she's wrapped them up into four easy steps that can be applied to any organizing project: 1. purge, 2. design, 3. organize, and 4. maintain. The keys to Barbara's success are simplicity and consistency. Room by room, she takes readers through the most problematic areas in the home- from the tornado-struck play area to the packed basement or storage unit. Barbara shows readers how to approach organizing in manageable bites- many of which can be dealt with in two hours or less. As the mother of thirteen-year-old twins, Barbara offers insight into the lives of crazed moms as only a mother could with tips like these: • When it comes time to clean out the toy bin, keep only what your child plays with- educational toys "exist to make you feel guilty." • Throw away those kitchen gadgets you never use. A streamlined kitchen can mean the difference between another night of take-out and a healthy family meal. • Your child doesn't need to attend six birthday parties in one weekend. To avoid social overload, Barbara preaches the power of "No"-and there's no need to follow it up with a why. • Having trouble parting with your child's artwork from three years ago? Scan or digitally photograph everything and create a gallery on your computer. Combining the humor of a sympathetic friend and the no-nonsense advice of a true type-A personality, Reich offers clever, appealing solutions that are genuinely achievable for everyone.
