Publishers Description Somehow, no matter how hard some people try to change their messy habits, they just can't seem to keep their homes in any kind of order. Magazines and books and television shows offer all kinds of advice and tactics for keeping a house organized and neat and livable. But what some people need is not more advice but a change in their mindsets. Organizing for Life helps readers understand why they seem to be inherently messy people, exposing the lies they tell themselves and introducing the truth about how they really can have a clean, inviting home. Felton helps readers focus on overcoming the roadblocks that keep them in a permanently messy state in order to change their habits for good.

don't bother Mar 12, 2010
A patronizing and badly written book. The continual use 'Messies' is distracting and offensive. No practical advice is provided.

This book gives a lot of tips on decluttering, procrastination. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs help with organization, especially if you tend to procrastinate. I also prefer the audio version because by listening you learn more each time
Fabulous book for the serious Messies :) Oct 31, 2009
I can't believe that this book hasn't received more reviews. After seeing that's available on audio, I downloaded it from audible ($6..something as a member is all it cost me)and it feels like this book was written about me personally. Many self-helf books don't work on audio, but this one does!! No worksheets etc. to fill in, just good solid information to take in and absorb.
For me this is THE book that really speaks about the reasons for being a Messie and why the clutter keeps coming back like a boomerang. I've read (or tried to read....usually abandon them part way through) other books on the topic, but none so far has been able to keep my attention like this one. You can tell that this is someone that's been there and that makes all the difference...she truly understands what goes on in your head and has a sense of humor to boot.
I am determined to get organized and NOT to let the mess back this time around, though, and will read more of her books on the HOW to accomplish staying on track now that I know WHY I got here in the first place.
I love the part of creating beauty as the ultimate goal. Having an organized and functional home seemed to be the best thing to aim for, but realizing that this is only the beginning opens a whole new world :)

This book was truly annoying. Every other word is "Messie." I just couldn't continue reading it.
Decluttering - S Felton Jan 15, 2009
This recording deals with a difficult subject, decluttering. I think it has some good ideas, but I haven't fully overcome my clutter problems, so I can't rate it as 5 stars. The author lists personality traits and habits that cause clutter. I believe this approach is valid, and her ideas are good.
