Review: 'Conquer the Clutter' by Melissa Bigner

Conquer the Clutter: Reclaim Your Space, Reclaim Your Life by Melissa Bigner, 2005, Meredith Books, $19.95, softbound, 192 pages. Category/Genre: how-to. Cover: attractive. Where we got it: borrowed it. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble. 

Following an overly-long chapter on assessing your situation, this book has some good advice. Purging, the author says, is the first step to conquering your clutter; then you must ask yourself how you want the room to function and plan zones for each function. For example, if you want your family room to have a reading area, an entertainment area, and a work space, you'll want to plan for each area. 

Bigner has tips for sorting, a 'Keeper Quiz,' and tips on selling the stuff you no longer want but that somebody will.
