Organized Enough : The Anti-Perfectionist’s Guide to Getting–and Staying–Organized
How much is organized enough? The idea of a “good enough” level of organizing and cleaning is enticing. I’ve come to the conclusion that my “enough” involves significantly less work than that of a professional organizer—even if she thinks she’s paring things down to just the minimum. My organizing needs as a homeschooling mom in a moderately sized Oklahoma house are not much like those of her Manhattan apartment-dweller clients, either.
Though I may not agree with everything stated in the book, I will concede that some amount of organization is essential to any sort of efficiency in life. Having identified the need, this book does a good job of breaking the work down into its essential parts. The first section covers how to get organized, and the second section presents habits to help you stay that way. Every chapter begins with the basic principle, includes examples and ideas of how to implement the principle in different areas of the home, describes the benefits of following the principle, and finally ends with a bulleted list of points to review. If you want to get organized but you’re not sure where to start, this book gives an accessible starting point, and then you can decide what “organized enough” means to you.
