    Filled with numerous organizational tips for every aspect of your life, this book is extremely helpful. Whitwer not only covers the material aspects of life, she includes sections on how to organize intangible items, such as time and technology.

    Sharing a variety of personal examples, and many different solutions, Whitwer does not present a one size fits all approach to organization. Instead, as a a working from home, mother of five children, Whitwer presents realistic methods and tips which readers can pick an choose to apply to their own situations and seasons of life. Her tone is informative and encouraging, not overbearing or manipulative. She wants to persuade her readers to be more organized, but in their own style and way. There is no perfect way to organize a home. We must each find the systems that work for our lives and families.

    There are large scale ideas and approaches like how Whitwer views closets of clothing. From page 197, she shares that "A bedroom closet is a place of dreams. Dreams that we can still fit into that dress, that we will wear those heels, or that someday our favorite pink shirt will actually look good on us." Her assessment is certainly true of my closet!

    Another aspect that truly hit home was one of her points for time management. Whitwer speaks of balance. When we say yes to one thing, we must say no to something else. Though we all inherently know this, seeing it written out resonated with me. I was grateful for the reminder.

    As much as I liked her specific approaches to organization and purging our possessions, I truly appreciated her overall outlook much more. Whitwer begins and ends the book with a clear focus on the whys of organization. According to her, our organization, or lack of, directly affects our ability to live out God's will for our lives. It is another reality she gently reminds her readers to consider as she urges us all to live organized lives.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.
