One-Minute Organizer: A to Z Storage Solutions: 500 Tips for Storing Every Item in Your Homeby Donna Smallin
Synopses & Reviews
Got a minute? That's all it takes to conquer clutter! Organizing guru Donna Smallin offers hundreds of quick tips for storing all your household items.
The latest in Storey's best-selling One Minute Organizer series, The One-Minute Organizer A to Z Storage Solutions offers practical advice based on the time-tested principle that everything — absolutely everything — has its place.
From airline tickets to x-rays, Smallin suggests handy ways of organizing household items neatly and in a way that makes the items easy to find. Her idea of "storage" goes far beyond baskets and plastic bins; with her help, readers will not only be able to keep their household items from piling up on the kitchen counter, they'll also be able to find everything they need in seconds. Smallin even tackles the most vexing kinds of clutter — children's artwork, receipts, holiday decorations, and mismatched socks.
Her tips are at once creative and common-sense — like storing earrings in ice cube trays, one set per cube.
Items are presented alphabetically for easy reference and browsing, and the book's colorful, quick-read format makes it both practical and fun. To help readers who are new to a clutter-free lifestyle, Smallin includes some time-tested organizing principles — like discarding old items as you acquire new ones and donating items that haven't been used in more than a year. Every page brings even the most clutter-challenged reader closer to a more ordered life.
With the help of this concise, no-nonsense reference, readers will enjoy more time and less mess. Best of all, they'll be able to find that take-out menu, spare tube of toothpaste, and elusive matching sock, every time.
