I (Litsa) loved Barbara Reich’s presence on the Today Show yesterday! I thrive in organized environments and I’ll settle for no less in our home! Even my four year old understands my madness about everything having a place in our home. She told my husband yesterday, “I’ll hide the M&M tubes in my playroom for you!” He told her that the empty tubes would be perfect for housing screws in them for client projects in the works, screws/nails in his toolbox/shop, and more.
What I loved about Barbara Reich’s approach is that she’s tough! If you missed her on the news yesterday and you are SERIOUS about reorganizing your home this spring, you’ll want to opt for her book: Secrets of an Organized Mom: From the Overflowing Closets to the Chaotic Play Areas: A Room-by-Room Guide to Decluttering and Streamlining Your Home for a Happier Family.
One reviewer wrote, “Basically, her approach to organizing is: Purge. Design. Organize. Maintain.” Now, if you are not there yet….you will need to read each secret carefully! I’d love to be hired out to help you! Although my travel expenses may cost you more than this book. But, I have faith that if you are serious about purging——–you can! I personally sold over $1,000 worth of unwanted items out of our home this month——-by advertising on a Facebook Resale site! And, I am not a hoarder….I donate a bag of unwanted items to the local mission every month! Now, you know why my four year old has already understood, “If you want to keep it, you best put the item up where you want it and communicate it to MOM!”
