Space to Spare: A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization Book Review #ad
Is your home disorganized? Really you want to say “whose isn’t??!!” If you have a family and kids are part of that family then your house will at one time or another, or all the time, be disorganized.
A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization is the only resource you’ll need to walk through simple processes and tips for organizing your time, your stuff and your space.
A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization is broken down into 6 parts.
Part 1 Organizing Your Time: Creating a workable routine for yourself (mostly geared at stay at home moms). Teaching children to pick up after themselves. And there is a section in here about organizing a baby’s time. While I agree with baby having a schedule, every baby will have it’s own schedule based upon numerous factors number one being their personality. Debbie has listed a definitive schedule that may or may not fit your baby. I suggest you take that part of this section with a grain of salt.
Part 2 Organizing Your Belongings: Who couldn’t use more help here? This is about managing your things so they don’t take over your home and life. Once you can manage your things your time is better spent because you’re not spending all your time looking for things or wasting money re-buying things you already have but lost in your messy home.
Part 3 Organizing Your Home: Organizing the spaces in your home to work more efficiently. Clean up those rooms to they are presentable and not grossing you out. Creating stations and setting up a room the way you use it.
Part 4 De cluttering Your Time: Do you have too much on your plate? This section helps you to plan days, weeks, and months for you and your family.
Part 5 Categorize: How to put your belongings in categories to make them easier to find for the whole family. This section covers each room in the home.
Part 6 Organizing Your Children: Kids come with a lot of stuff. This section is about organizing them, their wealth of belongings, and creating spaces just for them.
My Review :
I really like this book. I can't wait until the warm weather comes around so I can go room by room and get them organized using what I have learned.
I like the Solutions part of each chapter where Debbie goes into detail about solutions to common organizing problems. We all have them and knowing different ways you can overcome those issues is nice. In my case it will come in handy for everyone in my family since there is so many of us. With up to 14 people being in the house at any given time we need all the organizing help we can get. This was great use for my older children who are away at college at the time being. If you are looking for some organizing tips for our home I would recommend this book.
A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization is a great book for moms who are serious about organizing the home. It’s a reference book for each area of your home and life.
A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization is available in paperback for $21.40 or for the Kindle at $12.99.
