Julie Morgenstern | Organizing from the Inside Out | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff
On Mondays, I will be posting a podcast recording of previously recorded book reviews. These are books that have impacted me that I want to share with you. In May, the Organize 365 book reviews will focus on estate planning and home organizing.This week I review Organizing From the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern.
This is the oldest organizing book I have in my personal library. Julie came out with this book back in 1998, but her principles stand the test of time. I read this book a few years before we adopted our two children, but I still remember Julie’s story of becoming a mom and feeling so disorganized.
She applied her professional organizing strategies to her personal life. She followed the steps of analyze, strategize, and then attack the problem. I could not wait to be a mother, and I knew I would organize our diaper bag exactly the same way. I love that Julie has developed a framework to create a solution that can be taught and replicated in different spaces and life situations.
