Can you really "cheat" at organizing? Of course you can.
How to Cheat at Organizing
shows you how to take shortcuts
every chance you get - to create just enough order to be
happy with your life.
With his trademark wit and straightforward advice
Jeff Bredenberg explains precisely how you can de-clutter
everything from closets and offices to cooking and finances.
All by following five core concepts that will keep your
house - and your life - neatly organized.
- Keep it simple - Set aside unreasonable traditions and
demanding activities that are no longer relevant to your life.
- Embrace technology - Snap up innovative new products
that can save you time and money.
- Manage the ins and outs - Don't collect all kinds of
unnecessary stuff that just creates more clutter. Throw
a tag sale and simplify your life.
- Strip, scrap, sort, store - There's a place for everything.
It may be the dump. Or the local Goodwill store. And
anything you value deserves a place of its own -
where it's easy to find.
- Get help - Enlist your family, friends, and associates
to join your organizational mission. They've got a stake
in the results.
Beyond this core philosophy, you'll discover lots of great
tips, detailed advice, and step-by-step instructions to make
a wide range of life's difficult activities quick and easy.
You'll find out about the world's simplest weight loss diet
(proven to be highly effective), how to slash the time
you spend grocery shopping, and how to fill your
house with hard working furniture.
And you'll discover a whole host of great new gadgets
and devices that will free up more time to relax and enjoy
the things that are really important to you.
Writing with a light touch and charming sense of humor,
Jeff Bredenberg will have you smiling all the way
to a simpler life.
