If you find yourself looking for your keys a lot, or looking for a favorite blouse you had your heart set on wearing today, or shuffling through piles of paperwork to find that past due bill you thought you had already paid, you might be a good candidate for this book about organizing your home.

There are a lot of home organizing books out there, but this on caught my eye because my home requires a major overhaul if I want to live life in an organized environment.

The book's plan is to have an organizing assignment for each month of the year. January, for instance, is pegged for understanding time management and working on the kitchen. There are mini articles in sidebars all throughout the book that offer even more advise. January's is about keeping a journal or creating a dream board to envision your goal for inspiration. Every month has a habit of the month for you to work on. Psychologists say that repeating a behavior for just twenty-one days will make it a habit, so you are encouraged to enforce some positive habits that will help to automatically keep your home organized once you have taken the time and made the effort to get it organized. Then each month is broken down into four weeks so that you never become overwhelmed. Besides helping you to analyze the reasons your home has become disorganized, the book also offers practical help such as information about useful organizing products and tools.

I hate to tell you this, but you are still the one that will have to roll up your sleeves and put in the time to get this job done. But it will probably help a lot to have a guide and a coach cheering you on. Is this the year you will become organized? I, at least, have take the first step and bought the book. Now I just have to dig in and do it!
