The Best Books About Organizing Your Home and Life

1. Organizing For Your Brain Type by Lanna Nakone

Have you tried to get organized and felt like you’d failed? Been there! Did you ever think that you had not tried a method that works with how you are hard-wired? This book starts with a great quiz to determine your “brain type” and then is loaded with great tips to help you get organized and stay that way.
Highly recommended!

2. Time Management from the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern

Ms. Morgenstern has other organizing books, but I like this one best. The best quote from this book is that paper clutter is a sign of poor time management. Stacks of paper many times resemble decisions yet to be made.  If time management is an issue you struggle with, this book has some great tips to get you started.

3. Getting Things Done by David Allen

This is one of the best books I have read on action paper management for people who don’t mind setting up and managing detailed paper systems.   There is a fair amount of “homework” in this book, but if you are ok with that, this is the book for you. One caution: if you are not too much about filing and detailed systems, this book may not work for you.

4. Use What You Have Decorating by Lauri Ward

Have you ever wanted to redecorate, but can’t afford to buy all new furniture and accessories? Have a room in your home you “just don’t like,” and not sure why?

Interior redesign is a hot topic right now, and who best to tell you exactly how to do it, but the woman who started it all? Lauri Ward is the pioneer of one-day decorating. Her book tells you the basics and how to create rooms you will love to be in. If you’re ready to redecorate with what you already have, this is the book for you!
