Stop Throwing Money Away by Jamie Novak

Stop Throwing Money Away: Turn Clutter to Cash, Trash to Treasure--And Save the Planet While You're at It
Stop Throwing Money Away: turn clutter to cash, trash to treasure - and save the planet while you're at it! by Jamie Novak.
I like this book!  I have read quite a few organizing books, and just reading them does not make one organized.  If just reading the books produced the desired effect, I would be slim and fit based on the number of diet and exercise books that I have read. 
Jamie gives good, concrete, budget friendly tips on how to organize and get rid of your clutter.
Some of her ideas I don't think I would do - like using egg cartons to organize stuff in drawers, but other things she suggests, I have already done or am now doing! 
She gives great ideas on how to overcome Organizing Distraction Syndrome - which I definitely suffer from.  I may create a desktop file system like she suggests, and I already set up a little box to hold my monthly receipts.  I like the idea of reusing what we have around the house.
I have been inspired by her book and am clearing out stuff to give away and sell.
Jamie also has a blog -
and a website
I am glad that I read her book and I highly recommend it!

  1. As I read your review, I thought of the plastic egg carton with lid (snap on) that my aunt gave me and that it would be a great little divider for small things in my sewing room. I also love to read diet and organization articles. Thank you for taking the time. I have been reading some of your other reviews.
