Me organized HA. I am one of the worst cleaners out there. I despise cleaning. Therefore, since I dislike cleaning you can also imagine I’m not the best organizer in the world either. Recently Professional Organizer Lea Schneider contacted me, (I still think she has been peaking in my windows) to do a review on one of her books.
Growing-Up Organized – A Mom-to-Mom Guide
Of course, I said YES! My husband has been telling me for years I needed to get rid of clutter. Clutter? I do not have no clutter I have things I just have not used yet. However, according to Lea I have clutter. “Scratching my head” So anyways, I was going to do a review on her wonderful book, but while reading it I “misplaced” it. Oops, I guess I have clutter after all.
After searching the house, which seemed like forever I finally found it, and no, I am not telling where it was the only thing that matters is I have it now.
Who is Lea Schneider? Lea is a mother, a wife, a professional organizer, writer and a motivational speaker.
What does she have to offer you? A LOT of knowledge on how too not only get organized, but to stay organized.
One thing I learned by reading Growing Up Organized is, getting organized doesn’t have to be a chore, I can get my daughter involved in helping me de-clutter our home. I learned that my biggest problem is trying to organize clutter. Do you organize clutter? You know that junk drawer, and when it gets full, you pull it out and toss it in a bin that you just went and bought from Wal-mart. Oh, do not act as if I am the only one who does that. Trying to organize clutter is a big no-no. If you don’t use it, you do not need it and/or you don’t love it, get rid of it. Plain and Simple.
In Growing-Up Organized, not only does Lea share mom-to-mom tips on getting and staying organized, she tackles each room one by one. The best thing I loved about the book is the fact she has everything broke down into sections. She also has labels you can use when tackling clutter. In her book you will also find helpful sites to help you become more organized.
This is a must have for all moms. I will be tackling my clutter and hauling it to the proper places very soon.
Buy It: You can purchase this book either through Amazon as a paperback or through Lea’s site as a eBook. Paperback version of this book is $14.00 and eBook is $10.00. This book really is a must have, cleaning would not be as bad if you had less things to clean.
