9781561589401: How to Cheat at Organizing: Quick, Clutter-Clobbering Ways to Simplify Your Life

Can you really 'cheat' at organizing? Of course you can. How to Cheat at Organizing shows you how to take shortcuts every chance you get - to create just enough order to be happy with your life.

With his trademark wit and straightforward advice Jeff Bredenberg explains precisely how you can de-clutter everything from closets and offices to cooking and finances. All by following five core concepts that will keep your house - and your life - neatly organized.

  • Keep it simple - Set aside unreasonable traditions and demanding activities that are no longer relevant to your life.
  • Embrace technology - Snap up innovative new products that can save you time and money.
  • Manage the ins and outs - Don't collect all kinds of unnecessary stuff that just creates more clutter. Throw a tag sale and simplify your life.
  • Strip, scrap, sort, store - There's a place for everything. It may be the dump. Or the local Goodwill store. And anything you value deserves a place of its own - where it's easy to find.
  • Get help - Enlist your family, friends, and associates to join your organizational mission. They've got a stake in the results.

Beyond this core philosophy, you'll discover lots of great tips, detailed advice, and step-by-step instructions to make a wide range of life's difficult activities quick and easy.

You'll find out about the world's simplest weight loss diet (proven to be highly effective), how to slash the time you spend grocery shopping, and how to fill your house with hard working furniture.

And you'll discover a whole host of great new gadgets and devices that will free up more time to relax and enjoy the things that are really important to you.

Writing with a light touch and charming sense of humor, Jeff Bredenberg will have you smiling all the way to a simpler life.

Review:

Supercheater Jeff Bredenberg wants you to get control of your life. Having previously given us "How to Cheat at Cleaning," he's back with "How to Cheat at Organizing: Quick, Clutter-Clobbering Ways to Simplify Your Life" (Taunton Press, $14.95). This comprehensive book isn't just about corralling your 600 CDs or that chaos you call a hall closet. Bredenberg shows how to organize your living space, wardrobe, even your eating habits. For those of us suffering from postholiday materialism hangovers, Bredenberg's wisdom is welcome indeed: "Celebrate getting rid of stuff instead of acquiring." After reading his book, you may want to go forth and organize - and cheat with impunity. --"Star Tribune" (Minneapolis, MN)
Don't bother being a perfectionist if you want to get your home organized. Even a little bit tidier will make a big differences says Jeff Bredenberg, author of the recently released "How to Cheat at Organizing: Quick, Clutter-Clobbering Ways to Simplify Your Life." That said, Bredenberg goes on to tell how to be more efficient in nearly everything. He'll tell you how to take on the medicine cabinet. The living room. The trunk of the car. Your wallet. Your condiments. He keeps going. He offers ways to simplify credit card debt. Exercise programs. Travel. Trips to the doctor. He's so efficient he's exhausting. But that's OK. You don't have to follow all of his advice. --"Star-Telegram"
Jeff Bredenberg has some news for you: the Queen of England is not coming for tea. Did you think she was? Do you insist on having everything in perfect order at all times, just in case she drops by? Today's world no longer requires that, says Bredenberg, known in some circles as the "Guruof Dirt," and most recently the author of "How to Cheat at Organizing: Quick, Clutter-Clobbering Ways to Simplify Your Life" (The Taunton Press, $14.95). When it comes to organizing, the all-or-nothing, top-to-bottom philosophy is antiquated and unnecessary. What you need is a pared-down, organized-just-enough lifestyle. What you need to do is create enough order that you will be happy with it - but take shortcuts every chance you get. "--Deseret Morning News" (Salt Lake City)
