In my opinion this is a BRILLIANT book, I bought it for myself after getting completely fed up of having a small house overrun with clutter and junk, never seemed to find things when I needed them, and it was a horrible mad panic when anyone decided to 'pop in' so I thought enough was enough so bought this book.
This is a paperback book packed full of hint and tips, routines, and photographs.
In this book it goes through step by step how to start clearing the 'clutter', and staying on top of it and methods of cleaning. I found this really helpful, my old method was to buy most of the cleaning products I saw advertised but not actually using them very much! This book runs through a checklist of what you actually NEED to effectively clean your home. The colourful photographs were a help too (and an inspiration) of a tidy, labelled kitchen cupboard and a wardrobe with all the clothes hung up neatly in colour order.
It is goes into how to run an organised home, like having routines for things, every item in your house has a place. Another issue for me was opening the post and stacking it up and before I knew it the pile of paperwork was out of control with receipts floating around the house, credit card statements that I forgot to pay. This discusses opening the post and dealing with it there and then, diary-ing reminders and filing necessary paperwork and recycling the rest. Also putting things away rather than just putting them on a flat surface to put away later!
It also mentions working in one area at one time, such as sorting out your wardrobe and do it all in stages, rather than get EVERYTHING out and then get really disheartened and then give up.
For some people this book may not be helpful as for them it would be 'common sense', but for me I'd got to a point where the house was so hideous I didn't know where to start. My house is by no means perfect but it has improved ALOT, and I do know the basics now.
I would definitely recommend this book to other people who are interested in decluttering their houses.
