Vali G. Heist began organizing at the age of five while cleaning up her room with her older sister. She started her professional organizing business after years of being asked to organize the homes of her family and friends. Organize This! Practical Tips, Green Ideas, and Ruminations about your CRAP began as a collection of the organizing columns she wrote for a local newspaper. CRAP is Vali's acronym that means Clutter that Robs Anyone of Pleasure. The book includes numerous tips on how to organize, green ways to recycle unwanted CRAP, success stories from clients, and further ruminations about CRAP. Vali helps her readers explore why they have so much CRAP in their homes, why they don't throw it out, and why they don't want to deal with it. She provides practical, easy tips to organize the readers' homes and help them live the life they really want. In addition, her book is chock-full of organizing resources, is fun to read, and makes a great gift for the organized person as well as the organizationally-challenged. Vali's insight helps readers learn the difference between belongings and CRAP and empowers them to discover that less is more. Her book also proposes how to live a more 'green' life and help save the planet in the process. Her passion is to find simple ways to organize life at home and at work and pass them on to her readers.Bob Rios, of Bob Rios Visual Strategies, created unique cartoons for the book to illustrate the dilemmas many readers face as they organize and unclutter their lives. Bob is a graphic designer, website developer and of course a talented illustrator, who lives in Lebanon, Pennsylvania with his wife and five children. You'll find his self-portrait on page 99 of the book! Vali wants readers to know that the goal of organizing isn't to have a perfect, 'Better Homes and Garden' house (hers isn't!), but rather to provide order to enjoy the space you have, handle the tough times with grace, and aspire to live the best life possible!It was touch and go for a while because my son (a.k.a. my personal Geek Squad) wasna#39;t around to talk me through it when I got frustrated a but now ita#39;s my ...
