When I revealed our new "built in" bookcase, many of my observant friends noticed my stash of organizing books:


Today I get to boast about my latest organizing read, that I believe to be a "Must Have" for anyone trying to find tips and tricks to get organized!

I am willing to bet that none of you are strangers to Laura who is the ultimate Organizing Junkie!  And if you haven't been introduced to her yet, you will adore her site, it's a given, so hop on over!

Well, not only does she totally heart to organize {for all the obvious reasons}, she also HAS A BOOK!



Clutter Rehab is my new FAVORITE organizing book.  No joke.  Here is why:
  • This book is a little "take with you anywhere you go" handbook.  
  • There are a total of 101 tips and tricks on getting your life organized. 
  • Because most tips only take up one page each, they are easy to read, understand and most importantly, IMPLEMENT!
  • She's like my long lost sister, I agree with everything mentioned in the book!  Here are some of my most favorite tips that she has outlined:
    • "Banish clutter excuses"
    • "Consolidate... everything!"
    • "Remember: less is more!"
    • "Give everything a designated space"
    • "Take pictures of sentimental clutter"
    • "Organizing doesn't have to be expensive - make do"
    • "Get kid's involved with organizing"
    • "Start every week with a menu plan"
    • "If you don't like something, change it"
    • "Re purpose items for creative storage solutions"
    • "Do a 'ten minute tidy' every night before bed"
OK, so all 101 are completely useful, I could really list them all.  And each tip is elaborated with all the information and tools to get you there! 

If you wanna snag a copy for yourself, it's for sale here on Amazon.

Or, you can enter to win a copy for yourself!  Right here!

  1. I heart your blog AND I heart kicking clutter! I recently was very proud to kick the memorabilia clutter that I had been lugging around for literally decades. I eliminated 50% of it! It feels good and I think I will go back through it again next year as I am sure I will be ready to let go of even more!

    I recently read What's an Unorganized Person to Do? And it revolutionized a lot about our home. I'm not a naturally clean person and it takes a lot of work for me. I pulled out a notebook and took notes the whole time. I reorganized our closet, under the sink, my clothing...so much! Now if only I could get it to keep my living room clean from my crafts...

  5. IHeart Kicking Clutter! To help teach my 6 year old son how to kick clutter, I had him help box up his winter clothes and get out his spring/summer clothes. I had him make piles of shorts and t-shirts, then count how many he had. He had to write a list of the clothes he already has, and the clothes we need to purchase (khaki shorts, sandals). That way, when we go shopping, he already knows he has 12 pairs of basketball shorts and can't beg for more :)

    My favorite clutter eliminating tip is to have a place for everything. So often clutter builds at my house simply because we're not sure where to put something...which means it winds up on the nearest flat surface.

  12. I heart kicking clutter!

    I use to move every year for my job. I had an annual reminder to rid myself of clutter that has collected dust over the year or things that I haven't used during that year. If I haven't used it in a year, I didn't need it. I lived in a studio apartment, so it was essential to be clutter-less

    Well, now I'm coming up one my 2 year anniversary of living in house. I have never felt so cluttered and accumulated.

    I could use this book as a remind on how to kick my recent cluttering habit.

  22. IHeart Kicking Clutter! I HATE clutter with a passion. I grew up in a clutter-filled house and vowed I'd never live like that in my own house. I like to get rid of things that we don't use or love periodically. I make trips to Goodwill occasionally and drop stuff off that is good enough to donate and the rest goes in the trash!

  24. I heart kicking clutter. I recently found your blog and its been one of my recent inspirations to start kicking my clutter/saving everything habit (don't worry I'm not a compulsive hoarder or anything)! :) My most recent decluttering victory was going through all my clothes and weeding out the stuff I never wear any more. Then we took out all the shelves in our "closet" and made extra hanging rods so everything is hanging instead of stuffed into about 25 shelves - ahh so much better.

  31. IHeart Kicking Clutter. I have a closet we call the "Closet of Doom" This is where everything goes to die in my house. I try to clean it out twice a year or....when things start falling out on top of us when we open it. Organizing tip, keep a basket for cords/cables (specially if your husband is a geek that keeps every cord he comes across). monicaesman@gmail.com

    I'm a clutter-kicking junkie! I actually work as an organizer/bookkeeper for a friend's business and organize my friend's houses...sometimes when they actually ask me to :)
    One of my hardest things to tackle is my kid's school papers that have to be returned, for example field trip slips and snack dates. I now have two cute clipboards hanging on the wall at the end of kitchen where I can click each child's spelling words, permission forms, etc... to eliminate lost/late papers. Makes me so happy :)

  34. IHeart Kicking Clutter! One of the best things we did was to organize our son's vast Lego collection into drawered boxes used for screws, nails, etc. you find at hardware stores. He labeled the drawers himself and he can find everything he needs to make one of his amazing creations in a heartbeat!

    One of the best things I've done in my home is to separate my son's toys into four plastic tubs of varying sizes. I rotate them every 2 days or so. If he asks for something that isn't in his current tub, he has to collect everything and put it away, then I get the tub he wants. That took 3/4 of his toys out of the mix at any time and makes him participate in the cleanup!

  51. IHeart kicking clutter! I live in a 2 bedroom apt. with little storage space so I have really been trying hard to get organized and declared. 1) I have started following blogs such as yours to get ideas, 2) I am participating in A Bowl full of Lemons weekly challenge as much as possible - I just organized and de cluttered my linen closet!

    This book looks awesome btw - I love practical, easy to use books like such.

  52. I just found your blog recently and would love to win this book. We just moved across country and despite getting rid of tons before the move, we have a lot left to purge. Being a military family, we never know what our 'next place' will be. As soon as I started unpacking, I set aside a box of things to donate. This helps make sure the other things coming out of the box actually get assigned a home! If someone hasn't moved recently, they can do the same thing, just tackle one cabinet/drawer at a time.

  54. I HEART KICKING CLUTTER! I'm new to your site (reading for about a week) and LOVE it!! Thanks for all the great tips! My mom just sold her house of 42 years and has "dropped" several boxes of my "stuff" (aka all the papers I ever wrote, birthday cards I ever received, art I ever made...you get the picture!) at my small SF apartment...I went through everything and narrowed it down to two letters from my dad (deceased); 2 from my mom; and two from my granny. I enjoyed looking at (sorta) the rest and said goodbye. As a mom of 2 with a 3rd on the way, I've decided to keep 2 special things from each year for the kids to look through when they get older, but not boxes from every year!

  58. Oh, you are heaven sent! I am trying to downsize after moving from our much larger house in IL (with a basement) back into our much smaller house in OK (no basement). When we bought this house before we only had one child (18 mos at time). We have moved back in with 3 kids total and a dog! I need to figure out what stays and goes and I was told it can't be the husband, dog or a kid...

  70. IHeart Kicking Clutter! My last clutter kicking success story was my "junk" drawers in the kitchen. I was using them for not only junk but also my cake decorating items, sandwich baggies, scissors, cookie cutters, etc. Actually, they weren't junk drawers at all, they were just so unorganized that it seemed to be junk. I bought some plastic drawer organizers from the Dollar Store and now they're my favorite drawers in the house!

    My latest success story has been a massive clothing purge. Between the 5 of us, we donated 2/3 of our clothes. There was so much stuff that no one wore, and I'm thrilled to no longer have it taking up space in my house.

  106. Iheart Kicking Clutter! I'm actually terrible at it, so I'm learning how to heart kicking clutter. But that's exactly why I need this book! I just recently found out that I am pregnant, and since we can't afford to move, I need to kick clutter so that there is room for our bundle of joy in our one bedroom apartment! It will be quite the challenge, but thanks to you, I am newly inspired and up to the challenge!

  107. IHeart Kicking Clutter! My current clutter battle is between me and my 2 year old's growing toy collection. It is so satisfying to walk into her room and know that every toy has a place to be neatly tucked away. I feel like I reorganize her things daily to try and make it work.

    Or at least I'd like to give it a swift kick, my screen saver scrolls through our pictures in slideshow format and it keeps showing the picture of our messy house from 7 years ago when I took the picture to inspire me to kick clutter. I clearly need something short, sweet to the point to kick me in the butt. Thanks!

    I love using those cheap plastic over the door shoe organizers (with clear pockets) to hold socks, tights, underwear, bras, etc. where I can see it all. My husband has one too, for ties, socks, belts, etc. Those have made life much easier around my house!

    My goal is to get my house organized in 2011. My favorite tip is doing a quick "10 minute tidy". Usually about 3 times a day (morning, afternoon, and before bedtime)! Thanks!

    For me, the best way to get rid of clutter is to have my Mother in Law come over and help me weed through everything. The impartial help makes me "get real" about all my junk I hold on to.

We've been "in transition" for over a year now, moving from one state to another and now buying a new house.

I also have spent much time in the past helping my parents achieve this, and know my time's not up with that either. So what I learn here (and hopefully in the book) will be passed on to many people.

  135. I heart kicking clutter! My favorite thing to do these days is work with my 4 and 6 year olds to train them to organize and clean their rooms. Talking with them about managing their stuff helps reinforce "rules" to me at the same time. "Don't put it down...put it away!" "One new toy in...one old toy out!" I need the reminders just as much as they need the lessons.

    I love to use clear, over the door shoe holders to help kick clutter. My favorite places to use them so far are the pantry door. Great for popcorn packs, the kids snacks, those mix or spice envelopes, and condiment bottles stored upside down. Also for the game closet. Love to put the small card games in the shoe holders so they dont get lost in the closet.

    Here's my clutter free tip: Whenever you leave a room, make sure you take something with you. For example, I have a glass of water on my nightstand every night. Before I leave the bedroom the next morning, I always leave with the cup. This avoids a collection of cups on my nightstand!

  156. I heart kicking clutter...especially in my closet. that is the most tidy spot in my house..always has been (wish i could say that about the rest of the house!). Every year, I go through my closet and get rid of stuff that i haven't worn or used in the previous year. and if I haven't, the item is out no matter how cute it is. I know I can always get something cuter to replace it later. :P

I totally bribe them! I tell them if they gather "X" number of things, or fill this big box with stuff to give away, then I will buy them ONE new toy. Or I get them excited about earning money via a garage sale and let them go to it!

    I live in my Grandmothers old house. Naturally there was alot of her things still left in the house, one being an old bill paying desk. It was really a desk, it just held pens and pencils and that's it. It took up good space in my dining room and I really didn't need all those pens and pencils...so I gave the desk to my mom and am in the process of organizing my desk to hold all my office supplies.

    My recent clutter kicking success was inspired by you and your photo organizing series. So, I owe you a big thank you! My husband and I had amassed an impressive collection of photos (paper) that were basically stuffed into photo boxes, still in their photo center sleeves. Over two weekends I sifted through all the photos, tossing unneeded duplicates, photo sleeves, fuzzies, and red eyes! I added labels to the photo sections and hurray! Organizing success! Thanks for the inspiration and for keeping us on track with your blog!

  173. "IHeart Kicking Clutter"...I consider myself an organzing freak or what people would call me an "A" personality as in "Anal". However after two kids I find that keeping my household organzied they way I would like to be a challenge. I'm always looking for opportunities to make things "Better", "More Organized", "More Funtional", it drives my husband crazy and he's always asking me "Where is the can opener this week" (you get the picture), I think this book might come in handy....I've got it in my Amazon shopping bin, just in case I don't win and I've sent a copy to my Ipad to take a sneak peak.

  183. IHeart Kicking Clutter!! :) My fav clutter reducing tip is to look at something and "triage: it. Does it make me happy? Do I really NEED it? Do I use it regularly? Does it hold a VERY important sentimental memory for me? If it doesn't fit any of these categories then sell it, donate it or trash it! You don't need every picture you have ever taken, every paper your kids have ever colored or every knick knack you have ever been given. You will survive and feel better because you have less "stuff" holding you down! :)

    I've been trying to pare down my kids toys, but it's so hard to get rid of things they still play with, but the playroom just got too overwhelming. So I took about 50% of their toys and stashed it in the garage. I plan to rotate their toys every month or other month. My boys will think they have new toys, and clean up is much easier with less toys!

    We are having our first baby in a few weeks :) and our biggest CLUTTER challenge was doing the babies room. Before we were pregnant, it was the "catch all" room. We pulled EVERYTHING out which was a whole room full of junk! We reorganized, recycled, reused, and donated lots of stuff. We now have all that was in that room in a closet. It is amazing what you can declutter! Now we have a sweet baby nursery (we call it a nurture-y). cathleen.cullen.09@gmail.com
