Organizing Solutions for People with ADD, 2nd Edition outlines new organizing strategies that will be of value to anyone who wants to improve their organizational skills. This revised and updated version also includes tips and techniques for keeping your latest technologies in order and for staying green and recycling with ease.

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are prevalent in society today, afflicting about 4.4% of the adult population—over 13 million Americans. Four out of every five adults do not even know they have ADD.

The chapters, organized by the type of room or task, consist of practical organizing solutions for people living with ADD:

  • At work: prioritizing, time management, and organizing documents
  • At home: paying bills on time, decluttering your house, scheduling and keeping appointments
  • With kids: driving them to various activities, grocery shopping and meals, laundry, babysitters, organizing drawers and closets
  • And you: organizing time for your social life, gym, and various other hobbies and activities
Color photographs that capture the short attention span of the reader are featured throughout, as well as sidebars and testimonials from adults with ADD, providing numerous organizational tips, such as the importance of dividing time into minutes or moments, task completion, how to avoid procrastination, asking for help, and how not to be a pack rat.

Get your life in order with this witty and sympathetic guide to organization.

Unruly Cooking Utensils

Problem:

“My cooking utensils always seem to be in a disorganized jumble in my kitchen drawers.”

Solution:

Cooking utensils must have their own home, all to themselves, somewhere convenient to both the sink and stove. Start your organizing project by evicting any intruders (rubber bands, pens, etc.) from your cooking utensils’ current home. Next, go through your utensils and eliminate duplicates, rarely-to-never-used items, and impulse purchases. How many wooden spoons do you really need? (Answer: one. I know it might be dirty when you need to use it, but don’t you have a sink?) Do you need all of those old, chewed-up spatulas? Are you likely to use that candy thermometer again?

Now that you have pared down your possessions, consider storing your utensils in something other than a drawer. Too many utensils in a drawer fit awkwardly, bunching up and rattling, so the drawer itself is difficult to open because the ladle is having relations with the potato masher. Store them instead in a carousel or large “canister” (glass, ceramic, or metal) so that you can see everything you have without having to open a drawer. It is also more efficient to drop clean cooking utensils in a carousel or canister than to wrestle with a stuck drawer. If you decide to use a canister, put your most often-used items in the canister and leave the lesser-used items in the now roomy drawer.

Easy Utensil Organizing

- Remove “intruders” from your cooking utensil storage area.

- Get rid of duplicates and rarely used novelty pieces.

- Store all, or your most often used, cooking utensils in a carousel or canister.
