My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Not very much to say about this guide in that it’s a standard organizational book that tackles rooms in the home one at a time, with a proposal of getting organized completely within a year’s time and having fun in the process of keeping to those habits. I listened to the audiobook version of the book and actually rather liked it, but found that it didn’t apply to me but in spurts. This is definitely a guide for those who want to manage their time and organization – and have families and their own homes (so for those who are single or live in apartments, condos, or smaller spaces, it’s not as helpful as it could be). I’ll admit also that the book was a bit long winded in establishing certain points – it could’ve been streamlined a little better to address certain aspects of the home, though I did like the incorporation of the journaling ideas, the time estimation for each project, and some of the tips it gives from everything in terms of organizing one’s bedroom, to the kitchen, to shared common spaces. It’s certainly a helpful book, though I think I didn’t get as much out of it as I would’ve liked.
Overall score: 3/5
