Learn to Organize captures in six organized steps what I’ve been trying to figure out all these years. While I have little talent for organizing, this book lays it all out on how to “get it done” with or without help. Lots of organizing books give tips, but Learn to Organize gathers all those tips into easy-to-follow steps for each space in the house. The tips for us “non-pros” will keep you on your schedule!
Learn to Organize guides you through the organization process in easy to follow steps including lists for “quick- toss” (simplifies decision making) and “potential goals” (narrows down options) specific to a project. It also includes necessary supplies and a rough estimate of time necessary to complete the job which assists the professional organizer and homeowner alike in time management. I learned new organizational tips and ideas, and go forward with more confidence to help clients in ALL areas!

When I looked around my house and saw the disorder I felt like an ostrich. I just wanted to bury my head in the piles and pretend I didn’t see anything. It felt overwhelming. Where would I start?
Sara Pedersen’s book, Learn to Organize, assumes the incredible task of creating order out of chaos in a mere one hundred pages. The book is succinct and very applicable. It’s saturated with practical steps to holistically organize both a home and an office. Sara breaks organizing into manageable segments, starting with small projects and progressing to more involved jobs. In addition to making physical spaces more functional, she problem solves ways to tame paper clutter, create files, suggests time saving measures and troubleshoots common issues.
This approach helps in three ways. First, there is no giant mess to navigate. Second, when some things are organized, the task at large is less intimidating and I have more energy to see it through. Third, her approach teaches principles of organizing through guided projects, so that I can sustain an ordered approach to living.
I’ve tried many approaches to organizing, but they’re all like crash diets that work for a time and then fail. I make a big mess, purge everything and then regret my haste. After spending time working through Sara’s book, I most appreciated how her suggestions helped me to simplify my life in thoughtful ways, by examining what is most important to me and where I spend my time. I can also keep it as a ready reference if I want to revisit a section. Learn to Organize is well worth it.
