The title of this book is misleading. You won't find ideas for unique shelves, bins or similar household organizers here. The book is not about organizing your home, it is more about organizing some aspects of your life and little pockets of your home, with a focus on arts and crafts. And with ten pages at the beginning of the book devoted to a list (with photos) of recommended tools and materials for completing the projects, you apparently are supposed to collect more stuff in order to supposedly organize your stuff!!

True, some of the projects are unique, but many seem very fussy in both construction steps and final appearance, and I think there is nothing really better here than any other ideas I've seen published. Some of the lamer projects included: a cheese grater distressed and converted into a jewellery holder (junky looking), tin cans turned into paint brush holders (more like an elementary school craft project), flowerpot pens (again, nothing new here), and fancied up twist ties (how this is supposed to help bring more order to your life than ordinary twist ties is a mystery).

The more interesting and useful (to me) projects were the mason jar sewing kit, mason jar organizer mounted on a wall, and wrapping bits of ribbon and trim on large popsicle-type sticks.

Bottom line: worth an idle read, but don't expect too much.
