Good Housekeeping Clutter Rescue!: Just Minutes a Day to Get Organized – Forever!
by C. J. Petersen at good housekeeping. Hearst; Spi edition (January 6, 2009).

Just the book I need before getting stuck into re-organising my crafty space. With a handy spiral binding and neat small take-anywhere size this book will hopefully save you.

I love the quick tips and ideas – although some require a bit more handyman skills than you average person might have – like turning a broom cupboard into a pantry complete with sliding doors and pull out swinging shelving system. There are lots of space saving and storage tips as well as that 15 minutes per day de-clutter rule. Lots of nifty storage solutions for tools, sports equipment, clothes, the study, mud room etc. All this is all very well in an ideal world – but if you have more stuff than places to put it you are already in trouble.

The One-Minute Organizer: A to Z Storage Solutions: 500 Tips for Storing Every Item in Your Home by Donna Smallin. Storey Publishing, LLC (December 10, 2008).

Another handy little book – full of one minute solutions – using common item as alternative storage devices – in this book there is a place for everything in your life.

my most favorite declutter/organizing book is: “it’s all too much: an easier plan for living a richer life with less stuff” by Peter Walsh
