If you’re starting new projects this spring, the right books can be real motivators, whether they give us a gentle nudge or a sharp jolt to take action. These three books take different approaches, but they all energize and inspire.
The Clutter Diet is the first book from Austin-based professional organizer Lorie Marrero. She takes an approach that combines psychological understanding and practical know-how, and offers ideas that go well beyond culling your clutter. Other topics range from meal-planning to e-mail management. Best of all, she emphasizes realism: Marrero wants to help you create a home organized for the way you actually live, not one that always looks ready for a magazine photo shoot. This is an unusually thorough and user-friendly guide — you can even download a companion workbook at Marrero’s Web site, clutterdiet.com.
