Okay, just looking at the cover of this book makes me itchy. Not that I am a neat freak by any means. But I do like to be able to FIND things, and you don't have to have 5 kids like me to get very disorganized VERY fast. You can check this label here to see some of my Tackle-it Tuesday projects I've had going on.
As for homeschooling, I find that I'm must less stressed out and a better mom/teacher when I can find stuff. Same goes for the kids. And I believe this starts with getting your entire house in order, getting rid of things, putting things where they go, etc. Then you can tackle your Homeschool Area. I've culled this area many times over the years and finally have it down to a very small size ... like one bookshelf and one 6-drawer craft bin (and the bin really needs some overhauling because 3 of those drawers are never touched so why am I using them for Crap Storage?)
So if the cover makes me itchy, the table of contents makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
Section 1 is Before We Begin Organizing (cool, so you aren't just going to start firing instructions at me)
Section 2 is Let's Get Organized (and is it just me who sees the word LEGO in there?)
Section 3 is Staying Organized which is my biggest challenge ... within a month a table or a space is craptastic once again at my place
Section 4 is Resources
Here's the Amazon listing so you can buy it on Kindle if you prefer, but at least you have take a peek inside at the full table of contents this way!
As for my review, I love this book. The author is friendly and funny and understands people. She has organized the homes of people and I have been to her home and IT IS ORGANIZED! I am confident that I can get my house in amazing order with just a handful of Sundays (I don't organize a whole lot during the week because I'm working/homeschooling, but on Sundays during the winter I am going to be all over this book, making notes and checking off things as I do them!)
Oh, and the author is a fellow homeschooler, and you can find her blog on my blogroll!
