Have you bought and read more books on home organization than you can count?

Let me guess:
• Go paperless.

• Get rid of everything that doesn’t spark joy.

• Color coordinate your wardrobe.

Um, yeah. I print emails, keep kids’ school papers, and my wardrobe is anything that fits and isn’t too revealing.
And yet, I’m organized.

There really is no denying that as you move through the various stages of your life, your organizational needs and the demands on your time will change.

What phase of life are you in?
I am 44 and in the survival phase of life (40–55). I’d be more organized if I didn’t live in my car and spend every other minute working or taking care of the house.

Maybe you are in the accumulation phase of life (21–40). Every time you get an organizational system working, you add something new. A new spouse, a new baby, a new job, a new house . . . You’d be more organized if things would stop changing every three months.

What about the baby boomers (55+)? The kids are gone, but now you’re left with a house full of memories—and lots of stuff. What do you want? What do the kids want? And what about what’s left over?
Most organizational books on the market profess to have a one-size-fits-all solution to home organization.
This one does not.

I’m a former teacher, professional organizer, and productivity coach, and I know that organization is more than just 15-minute daily tasks or cute ways to use fun containers.

As a generation translator and problem solver, I have been able to help hundreds of women in Cincinnati, Ohio—and thousands of women around the world—get their homes organized and keep them that way.

Understanding which phase of life you are in will enable you to:

• Identify the unique organizational challenges you’ll face.
• Implement lasting organizational solutions.
• Acquire and develop the skills you need to get organized.
• Deal with the emotional clutter in your storage rooms.
This is the home organization book that will make the rest of the books in your collection make sense.
