If you’ve ever looked at your house or office and wondered if you could organize it better, The Art of Organizing: An Artful Guide to an Organized Life by professional organizer and artist Nicole Gabai is for you. This is no boring list of instructions, but an engaging, informative, and useful presentation filled with colorful diagrams, tables, photographs, and other illustrations. Coming from a background in art, Gabai begins with the color wheel and then introduces her six organizing principles which consist of Sectional Organizing, Zones, Storage Solutions, Information Management, Portability, and a topic she titles Back to One which refers to maintaining what you’ve set up. Examples help to explain the concepts, with tips and quotes liberally sprinkled throughout, and an index is included.
In The Art of Organizing: An Artful Guide to an Organized Life, Nicole Gabai gives us a wonderful presentation on organizational concepts that blends vibrant illustrations with easy-to-follow, step-by-step practicality. I especially like the way that it guides you to define manageable areas of focus in each room rather than being overwhelmed by everything you see and explains how to define zones so the items you use the most are kept close at hand. In addition, the tips, checklists, action steps, and suggestions are not only extremely useful, comprehensive, and well thought out but are visually prominent throughout the book, making them easy to refer to. No matter what clutter you’re taking on, The Art of Organizing by Nicole Gabai can help you to organize it.
