This is a great tool for those that are trying to organize their workspace. I found it very helpful on how to start organizing by color. I had my supplies all over the place and have been frustrated with all the clutter in my craft room. I would stop and take the time to clean and thought I organized everything, but I really wasn't. This book has helped me greatly. Things are easy to find and to put back away.
I can't tell you how many people I've recommended this book to. I've been scrapbooking for over 20 years, and thought I was pretty well organized. Since getting this book, I've learned SO MUCH. It's well-written, covers everything imaginable, and has become my go-to book for everything I organize, not just scrapping.
I have to say, because of my busy schedule, I have not gone very far into the book, but I think it is set up quite well in regard to how to start getting organized. I am sure I will learn a lot.
In regard to space, I thought it was pretty good, but, have not so far, at least, found anything to address setting up space in an apartment situation. For some of us, we live in small apartments where we are not allowed to paint the walls or do much of anything else without breaking the rules. Perhaps if the next edition could address apartments specifically in a section, that would help.
Otherwise, so far, so good. I like it.
I haven't gotten all the way through this yet, but it really has offered me ways in which to control my space more efficiently - I'm excited to get all the way through, completmy lists, shop/move furniture, paint the room (I never thought about wall color affecting my layouts!) and start all over again! :)
I am in the process of organizing my home office/scrapbook space and have repeatedly pulled up my e-book to spur me on, help me decide on a solution and find ideas for storage. As my 'stash' expands, I am certain, I'll be pulling it up on my computer time and time again.
I have set the whole book up in a 3 ring binder, with tabs to direct me to the subject I want. I am in the middle of reorganizing my stamping studio and am finding this book very valuable. Thanks so much for publishing it as an ebook.
I have found a book that tells me detail by detail how to organize every nook and cranny. This book tells you how to sort almost everything in your stash and in your clutter space. I am pumped to start this year sorting my stuff. This boo tells you how to sort your magazines, your tools, your paper, your embellishments, your ink pads, all types of stamps, your punches, etc.... This is a good book you should definitely have in your scrap space to live clutter free!!!
I really enjoyed this!
A wonderful "first timers" book for how to break down your space and make it your own to function YOUR way. Every aspect is covered from decor to seating to storage. A great source for those who have a space but need some help as well.
