Over 1,300 ideas, tips, techniques and systems to help you organize your life. Also includes ready-to-use forms and checklists to help you get your life in order.
Kinda out dated. Probably better resources online. I do still like a book to peruse through, though. When needing to come up with new ideas. Would like to try this lady's planner, but I joined her club for $40 & there was $0 benefit. All her materials still cost $$. And the organizer isn't included. All the materials aren't very original. Just sharing from ADDitude and other sites we all read regularly already.
I bought this book several years ago and it is the the best book I've ever read on getting your home organized.

I first heard of Maria years ago when I checked out a library book by her, also on organizing. (forgot the name of that book)

Maria Gracia will give you practical, easy to accomplish chores, and if you just do a little each day following her advice you really can get your mess straightened out.

I highly recommend this book.
I enjoyed reading this book (was fortunate enough to acquire it through our public library's inter-library loan system), but I'm only giving it 4 stars because I felt it was lacking in some areas.

While I felt the book has a lot of great tips and tricks, if you will, I don't work in an office environment, and I felt that the word/words "delegate" (as in giving a job to someone else to handle) is obviously going to be directed towards someone who is working in an office versus a SAHM (stay at home mom), which is what my occupation is. Simply put, there isn't anyone else that is going to take up the slack since my husband works full time, etc. Not only that, but when one person does the housework without any, if much, help from their better half, they are going to have to come up with clever ways of getting things accomplished in a timely manner so as to be able to free up time to enjoy life.

Other than that, I did enjoy reading the book and have picked up a few of the author's ideas for improving things around the house (i.e. storage solutions).
If you want to have your own personal organizer--Read this book! Garcia offers simple, proven ideas and solutions to help you get rid of clutter once and for all. There are hundreds of great tips, good motivational quotes, and I especially like the how she included bits of advice from her readers and customers. It offers practical checklists for homes and businesses, realistic time estimates, and effective space-saving techniques. I love Garcia's innovative "get organized now!" approach. As a new professional organizer, I am in the process of reading any organizing book I can get my hands on and I was honestly impressed with this one. For the organized, disorganized, or someone in between, this book delivers!!!
This book is extremely useful in breaking down organization into simple to-do tasks. I always got overwhelmed when faced with boxes of things to sort, but this book helped me get it under control by breaking it down into mini-sessions. Some very goods tips were included in her book as well. If you enjoyed those, you might consider checking out her website at [...] for a weekly newsletter with tips and ideas.
Although Maria Garcia has a lot of good "tips" on how to do certain things around the house, if you are looking for a system to organize your housecleaning and everyday life, a better book to check out is Sink Reflections, by Marla Cilley. Her approach is "down-home Southern" and a bit unsophisticated, but it is useful, practical, and loving. It is especially good for SAHMs [...]
Great ideas. Now I need to implement them.
