Abstract:

""Everyone should Barbarafy," raves The New York Times! A life-changing program for streamlining everything that's weighing you down--from over-stuffed closets to overwhelming social calendars--courtesy of the media's go-to organizing guru: Barbara Reich. Mothers can feel like life is one neverending loop. Just when one problem or responsibility is handled, another one trips us up. But help is on the way: Barbara Reich has all the strategies necessary for staying ahead of the curve--and she's wrapped them up into four easy steps that can be applied to any organizing project. 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 over-stuffed 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. With each organizing project, she teaches readers how to apply the four steps--1) purge, 2) design, 3) organize, and 4) maintain. And she also reveals how to solve organizing problems that may pop up in the future--from knowing when and how to keep financial papers to how to digitally organize the family's photographs. As the mother of twelve-year-old twins, Barbara offers tips for crazed moms as only a mother could. 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"--

by booksonthebeach (WorldCat user published 2013-06-12) Good Permalink

Two and a half stars, actually, but I'll round up because not everyone will be as horrified as I was at the instruction to organize your books by size . BLASPHEMY! And also only appropriate for people who own about 2 shelves of books. For the rest of us, that's a truly idiotic thing...
