Professional organizer Barbara Reich offers a life-changing program--focused on decluttering and streamlining your home--that helps families live simpler, less chaotic lives: "Everyone should Barbarafy," raves "The" "New York Times."
Mothers can feel like life is one never-ending loop. Just when one problem or responsibility is overcome, another one trips us up. But help is on the way: Barbara Reich has all the strategies for staying ahead of the curve--and she's wrapped them up into four easy steps that can be applied to "any" organizing project: purge, design, organize, and maintain.
The keys to Barbara's success are simplicity and consistency. Room by room, she goes through the most problematic areas in the home--from the tornado-struck play area to the packed basement or storage unit--and approaches organizing in manageable bites. In addition to cleaning and organizing tips, she talks about how to avoid social overload, preaching the power of "No"--for example, when your child wants to attend six birthday parties in one weekend. As the mother of thirteen-year-old twins, Barbara offers insight into the lives of crazed moms as only a mother could.
Combining the humor of a sympathetic friend and the no-nonsense advice of a true type-A personality, Reich offers clever, appealing solutions that are genuinely achievable for everyone.
