Description

Mom's Choice Awards Gold Award Recipient 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.
