About this item


About the Book

Organizing for the Rest of Us, by decluttering expert Dana K. White, features 100 cleaning and organizing tips--for real people living real lives--that free you to declutter in a way that works for the long haul. Includes full-color photography and high design.

Book Synopsis

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 includes colorful photos, a presentation page, and a ribbon marker, making it a thoughtful gift or self-purchase 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 7 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!

I am sorry but this is a rehash

If you've read "How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind," and you watch Dana's YouTube channel, this is not new content. It is simplified for newcomers or those that don't want to buy the aforementioned book, but really, just watch her YT channel and you'll save yourself needed funds. I really don't like the section on folding laundry directly from the dryer. The minutes it takes to accomplish this are minutes that could be spent saving gas or electricity keeping the dryer hot. I pull my laundry out (neatly, not in crumples) and throw in the items from the washer so the dryer never has to work to heat back up. I know Dana thinks the minutes spent folding directly are too small to matter, but not everyone has a new appliance, and even those of us that do might want to get out of our cold laundry area and fold while watching her YouTube channel instead.

As a mom of a newborn I appreciate how easy it is to read this book and implement her ideas. I've done Marie Kondo's method before, but I'm in a season in life that I can't spend hours working in one area of my house. I also can't leave everything out of place with my 3yo around. This book helped me get rid of some things I was struggling with and now it is so much easier to get to my favorites.

Great quick read and flip through book. There are bite size, digestible, and real life doable tips and suggestion. I love Dana’s previous two books and love this book and will likely buy more as gifts because this book is totally giftable.

This book is helpful if you struggle with how to manage “stuff” in your house. Dana’s previous books outline decluttering & household routines; this one is much of the same information in bullet point style tips. Easy to pick up and put down. Which is handy if you need to get up and implement some of it. Highly recommend for those of us who just can’t Marie Kondo our houses because our brains don’t work that way!
