So you want to keep your kitchen counter clean but you aren't ready to toss the toaster? You want to be able to find your kids' socks but aren't looking to spend your 401(k) on clear bins? You long for a little more peace but minimalism isn't sparking joy? Decluttering expert and self-proclaimed recovering slob Dana K. White offers sustainable ideas to simplify and manage your home in Organizing for the Rest of Us.

Traditional organizing advice never worked for Dana K. White. Is it possible, she wondered, to get organized without color coding my sock drawer? As Dana let go of the need for perfection, she discovered the joy of having an organized house in the midst of everyday life.

In Organizing for the Rest of Us, Dana teaches us how to make great strides with minimal effort in organizing every room of our home. Here she offers 100 organizing tips to help us understand:

  • Why changing how we think about clutter is the first step to getting rid of it
  • The basics of organization for people who don't like to organize
  • Why you need to get a grip on laundry and dishes before getting organized
  • How living with less clutter is better for the environment, our spiritual lives, and our relationships
  • Why real-life decluttering requires fewer hours and less emotional bandwidth than we imagined
  • Organizing for the Rest of Us is perfect for anyone:

  • Doing spring cleaning
  • Making New Year's goals
  • Downsizing their own home or their parents' home
  • Decluttering and organizing for their own peace of mind
  • Fans of Dana's podcast, A Slob Comes Clean, which has been downloaded 9 million times, will treasure this book as a resource. With her lighthearted approach, Dana provides bite-size workable solutions to break through every organizational struggle you have—for good!
