Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

Organizing for Your Lifestyle: Adaptable Inspirations from Socks to Suitcases is a non-fiction self-help book written by Jane Stoller. For Stoller, organizing is a joy and an art form. Her book is designed to introduce the concept of home organization and to suggest ways to help readers declutter and get organized. She begins her text with a discussion of the health benefits to be gained by living a more organized and orderly life, including showing how planning and putting out your exercise gear for the following morning's workout may actually get you to follow through on those exercise plans. Stoller discusses how to redesign your closet or set up a storage system in a limited space, and shares her input on the best hangers for specific garments, as well as storage options for boots, handbags and shoes. She also demonstrates how organization can make the bathroom and kitchen healthier and function more efficiently.

Jane Stoller's non-fiction self-help book, Organizing for Your Lifestyle, is a lively and well-presented book that showcases the author's lifelong love of organization, and shares her enthusiasm for making what many consider a chore into a passion and a positive lifestyle change. I was impressed with her obvious flair for design, and often wondered why Stoller hadn't been snapped up by one of the designer houses as an organizational guru. While much of the closet chapter is geared toward women and their attire, I appreciated her reasoned and sensible approach to the bathroom and kitchen, and found her travel tips to be illuminating and up-to-date. Most of us have no idea what we can take on board a plane nowadays, and Stoller's suggestions are helpful indeed. Organizing for Your Lifestyle: Adaptable Inspirations from Socks to Suitcases is recommended for anyone who's considering how to declutter and has a desire get their life back in order again.
