From a Closet Design Professional: Terrific! May 23, 2008
I'm an experienced Closet Designer and found this book to be a wonderful read. I enjoyed and was inspired by the crisp, clean, beautiful images and was charmed by many useful tips, including grouping photos in like frames, all antique frames (or all modern frames) for example, to create the look of a cohesive collection. Kudos to author Merv Kaufman! Janet Valenza [...]
Lot of pretty pictures Apr 14, 2008
It's a pretty book -- with great design ideas, and the index in the back is good for possible organization solutions, but this book focuses more on major renovation-type organization a lot (ie. cabinets/custom units etc.) and less about a true breakdown of how long to keep stuff, important stuff to keep, vs. stuff to toss, etc. Good general guide...
nothing special Jan 1, 2008
This is a very generic organization book. If you are absolutely desperate or an extreme novice, it's not bad, but there are plenty of other great organization books. One great alternative for any level of chaos is Eliminate Chaos: The 10-Step Process to Organize Your Home and Life.
Disappointing Feb 12, 2007
I was really disappointed in this book and wouldn't recommend it. There are far better books if you're looking for ideas on how to declutter and reorganize while keeping the stress level down.
