In this attractive book, the self-taught consultant and author presents her five-step method for organizing a home :
She then discusses its systematic application to various rooms: entryway, kitchen, dining room, living room, bedrooms, etc.
Sadly, the result is rather repetitive and not very substantial. Some specific tidbits are useful (such as keeping an umbrella in the car or note paper and a pen in your bedstand to note down ideas that pop up in the middle of the night). Others sound almost humorous but probably are not: don’t leave dirty laundry on the dining room table or have an extra set of bedsheets so you don’t have to wait till the sheets are washed to make your bed again!
The book is very generously illustrated with photos, many full-page. They show what appears to be various parts of the same house, where almost everything is white, and thus crisp … but quite bland and impersonal.
Overall, there is little justification in recommending this book to anyone.
