The One-Minute Organizer: A to Z Storage Solutions: 500 Tips for Storing Every Item in Your Home : The latest in Storey's best-selling One Minute Organizer series, The One-Minute Organizer A to Z Storage Solutions offers practical advice based on the time-tested principle that everything - absolutely everything - has its place. From airline tickets to X-rays, Smallin suggests handy ways of organizing common household items neatly, and in a way that makes the items easy to find. Her idea of "storage" goes far beyond baskets and plastic bins; with her help, readers will not only be able to keep their household items from piling up on the kitchen counter, they will also be able to find everything they need in a matter of seconds. Smallin tackles some of the most vexing clutter - children's artwork, receipts, holiday decorations, and mismatched socks. Her tips are at once creative and commonsense - like storing earrings in ice cube trays, one set per cube, or investing in furniture that can double as storage units. Items are presented alphabetically for easy reference and browsing, and the book's colorful, quick-read format makes it both practical and fun. To help readers who are new to a clutter-free lifestyle, Smallin also includes some basic timetested organizing principles - like discarding old items as you acquire new ones, and donating items that haven't been used in more than a year. Every page brings even the most clutter challenged reader closer to a more ordered life.
