Stewart (Martha Stewart’s Cookie Perfection) turns her discerning eye to organization in this beautifully photographed and impeccably designed guide to organizing everything. Starting with a sensible list of organizing principles and provisions (among them tackling one room at a time, doing a little work every day, and making the most of every square inch of space) and her top 10 organizational tools (including bins and baskets, drawer inserts, and lazy Susans), Stewart divides the book into three broad categories: Organize Your Year, Organize Your Home, and Organize Your Routine. Wondering how long to keep beauty products? In a comprehensive chart, Stewart tackles the top 12 items found in most bathrooms, including mascara and sunblock, covering how long each lasts and how to extend the life of each. Not sure how long bacon and other kitchen staples last? Stewart enumerates items, shelf life, and how to store items. Need a list to keep one’s Thanksgiving preparations on point? The author’s begins a month before Thanksgiving and ends the day after. Stewart also includes instructions for a few charming craft projects, including map coasters for Father’s Day. This thoughtful, empowering offering will inspire even the most unorganized. (Jan.)
