I love "Real Simple" the magazine, but I was a bit disappointed with this book. I supposed if you aren't sure what you might need for your home, the items outlined in "The Basics" section of each room (chapter) would be helpful. However, I feel as though they are assuming everyone lives in a large home with an abundance of space. For example, one of the basics listed for the bedroom is an Upholstered Chair. They admit it's not a necessity, but not everyone has the space in their bedroom to add a chair. I also found the laundry information dated as they make on mention of HE washers and dryers.

I thought it was going to be more of a "how to instructional guide" to storage solutions and seemed to be more of an "interior decorating" book.

I ended up buying this book online as I think it serves as a great reference if you are generally trying to get your home organized.

It was o.k. Pretty basic info about what furniture each room in a house should have. Nothing new and nothing inspiring. Very basic.
