"Pretty Neat: The Buttoned-Up Way to Get Organized and Let Go of Perfection" Review & Giveaway!
By Alicia Rockmore
Imagine a world where every toy is put away in its assigned place-where the magazine rack actually holds magazines-where every piece of flatware rests nestled perfectly against another. Pretty neat, huh? Not in MY world! I am not an organized person. I make lists for everything I need to do and never get anything done! I procrastinate until my hair just waits to be pulled out!
Now comes along a gem of a book with ideas and tips to help with my real world of chaos! Alicia Rockmore and Sarah Welch have written an entertaining and funny bone of a tome!
Here are two down-to-earth gals here to guide me! I am a pack rat. My daughter, Gracie, is a 7 year old fashionista who litters her bedroom and MINE with trails of skirts, slacks, blouses, underwear and various hair accessories as she tries to get dressed each morning! No, she refuses to consider the concept of organization. I grow tired of picking up after her! For heaven's sake, I'm too busy writing to-do lists and putting off till tomorrow what I'm not going to attempt to do today!
You really need to follow the advice in two of my favorite chapters, "Learn How To Say NO" and "Take Charge of Your To-Do List". Thanks to all this pratical advice, I'm learning to let go and do the best I can with what I've got! Especially my little fashionista!
One winner will receive a copy of the book, "Pretty Neat: The Buttoned-Up Way to Get Organized and Let Go of Perfection".
Open to USA. Giveaway ends March 21, 5:00PM PDT. 18+
In a comment, confess a funny story about either an area that has become out of control inside your home or a way in which you have given up organizing and covered up instead (i.e. shoving items under the bed, designating one room or closet as the catch-all, etc.).
That's it! Now go forth and have fun!
