Reviews of Julie Morganstern's Organizing from the Inside Out : by Julie Morgenstern

                     Amazon.com
                     It's about time! Julie Morgenstern has written an organizing book that
                     covers a new way of looking at the task of organizing effectively without
                     labeling or blaming the person behind the lack of organization. Rather,
                     she says, people who don't organize just never learned how to organize,
                     through no fault of their own--after all, it's not a skill that's taught in
                     school. That said, she gets down to work helping you figure out an
                     organizing system that will really work for you, not a system based on
                     cookie-cutter filing concepts or special storage units.

                     Morgenstern's "from the inside out" system begins by laying out the
                     possible reasons for a failure of organization: technical errors (like having
                     a complex organizing system that breaks down), external realities (like
                     not enough space for your belongings), and psychological obstacles (like
                     fear of failure--or success). Then, her Analyze and Strategize steps help
                     create a plan of action based on your needs and goals, and the brief
                     chapter called "Attack: Getting the Job Done" offers basic ideas for
                     making space. The largest section of the book, "Applying What You've
                     Learned," addresses the specifics of organizing workspaces, home
                     offices, living spaces, and storage areas. Each section has a "How Long
                     Will It Take?" box that gives a realistic time estimate, and Morgenstern's
                     "Julie's No-Brainer Toss List" for each area gives the permission and
                     encouragement that most of us have been waiting for to get rid of things
                     we'll never use again. The section at the end, "Tackling Time and
                     Technology," is worth its weight in DayTimers and PalmPilots. Whatever
                     your organizing issues are, you're not a hopeless case, and you don't
                     need special equipment--just a little understanding of the problem and a
                     willingness to plan before diving in.

                     The author, Julie Morgenstern, EMail
                     Address-organize@juliemorgenstern.com , October 18, 1998
                     Why I wrote this different sort of organizing book
                     From the day I was born until the birth of my own child, I was a
                     notoriously disorganized person. I lived out of piles, spent half my day
                     searching for things and lost everything imaginable-- little things like keys,
                     gloves and wallets to really big things, like a pair of boots, the jacket from
                     a vintage suit and believe it or not, even a friend's car. I tried to get
                     organized for years-ached for it deeply-but no storage unit, clever
                     organizing basket or even marathon cleaning weekend ever seemed to
                     create lasting results. Within days, my old familiar mess would be back.
                     My daughter's birth gave me the motivation I needed to finally break free
                     of the chaos. One day, after spending over 2 ½ hours getting ready to
                     take her for a walk, I realized that if I didn't get organized, my child
                     would never see the light of day! So, I started with the diaper bag, just so
                     I could be free to take my child on an outing at a moment's notice.
                     (Details of how I succeeded are in my book). With that victory under my
                     belt, I used the same approach to tackle the kitchen cabinets. Then the
                     closets, then my papers, and so on. Before long, I had my entire house
                     under control and was finally able to experience the freedom and
                     empowerment of organized living. There are many excellent organizing
                     books on the market-but the majority focus on a thousand and one clever
                     ways to stretch space and store your belongings. My personal experience
                     and my work organizing clients have taught me that the major obstacle
                     people face in trying to tackle their clutter is not a lack of storage
                     ideas….it is that when they face the mountains of clutter, they are
                     completely overwhelmed. They have no idea where to start and they
                     don't know how to see the project through to the end. They make many
                     classic mistakes which actually lead to creating a worse mess than when
                     they started. And when they search for clever tips and cool looking
                     containers, they have no criteria for deciding which ones will be right for
                     them. With Organizing from the Inside Out, I address the true challenge
                     of getting past the overwhelm to design a system that is right for you.
                     Sharing my 10 years of experience as a professional organizer, I teach
                     you my method for sorting through the piles-for facing the mountain of
                     clutter and knowing exactly where to begin. I provide you with a
                     foolproof 3-step process that works on anything you want to
                     organize-from a closet to a garage, a filing system to a schedule.
                     Organizing from the Inside Out shows you how to design your system
                     based on your unique personality, natural habits and goals so that it is
                     incredibly easy to use and a snap to maintain. Organizing is a simple skill
                     anyone can learn. I hope my book will get you past the roadblocks which
                     have been holding you back, and allow you to experience the joy and
                     power of organized living forever. Please visit my web site and write to
                     me with your success stories!
