"Yvette,
I really enjoyed your book. I have read many organizing books and I am always trying to become more efficient in doing things. The thing I liked in particular about your book that I have not come across before was the message that "I am doing this for myself" When I was young we had a very orderly family. My dad was in the navy and used to having everything very orderly. I only had one sister and neither one of us was particularly messy. We had one dog and no other pets. Everything stayed organized and relatively clean without a lot of work. I have 4 kids, 2 of them boys. We live on a farm with 5 horses, 3 dogs, 12 or more cats, 2 rabbits which are always having babies, and any number of snakes and lizards or frogs or salamanders that the children have caught. We live on a dirt road which is always muddy or dusty and seems to find its way into the house regularly. On top of this I home school the kids so I spend a lot of time doing this and also the kids are always here--messing the house up!! I would not change our life for one like my childhood, but I would like my house to be as self-cleaning as my mom's. It seems that I am the only one that cares whether or not the house is neat. For the first time I had an organizing person tell me that instead of trying to change them I need to remember I am doing this for myself. That is really the truth of it. I love a neat clean house. I get frustrated when I can't keep it that way. Now I say to myself, when I am cleaning the same entry rug for the 5th time that day that I am doing it because I want it clean. The kids did come in the door they were supposed to come in and wiped their feet and removed their shoes and even put them on the shelf, so they did their part. This has really revolutionized the way I feel when I clean. I am so grateful for your advice.
The other thing I liked was that you broke the organizing down into the decluttering, then organizing, then deep cleaning. This has revolutionized the way I try to teach the girls to go through their stuff. I used to think it all had to be done together. This is very inefficient and the kids lose interest and make more mess before they ever make progress. With this method I give the kids a specific part of their room, a drawer, desk, etc. and only ask them to toss the junk and relocate whatever does not belong there. This is manageable for them and there are instant rewards, even if it is not dust free at this point, they can stop and still see progress. It is also not likely that they will just junk it up again, knowing that the decluttering is now done. This method also gives them time, a day or two, to live with the space before assigning specific things to it. It allows time to purchase containers if needed. It also allows them opportunity to toss the stuff they held back in the beginning and then decided it could go. Finally, it becomes a pleasure to deep clean the newly organized area instead of a dreaded chore midway through a gross organizing job. I am very excited with the book and information. Keep writing. I really enjoy your newsletter."

"Dear Yvette,
I'm still busy reading but have already put a couple of things into practice.
Just to let you know that I almost missed my flight last week reading your book!
Your book is excellent and is very simplistic and easy to follow.  I've started doing some changes in my personal life and realized it was easier to read the book but I will persevere.
Thank you"

Sandra, Johannesburg, South Africa

"Hi,
I am still enjoying the book and reading more than doing at the moment but have implemented a few little things so far.
I feel the main reason I became interested and decided to buy your book was due to my clutter both mine and my kids' clutter is becoming a huge burden and really getting me down. I think the room rotation and just the thought of only using half hour at a time is more appealing to actually getting it done than completely turning one room upside down and being in utter chaos and not wanting to continue with it!
I do have a quote that actually my daughter quoted to me when she knew what I was reading - she is nearly 7 and said she will help me de-clutter so she can have friends over more often and know where everything is and maybe do a car boot with the items she doesnt want anymore. Thats providing her 3 year old sister doesnt get to them first!! Your book has inspired me to slowly de-clutter in room rotation and as I dont have too much spare time can work this in nicely and I am looking forward to having an orderly house back again!!! Thanks so much."

Amanda, Jersey, Channel Islands, UK

"Hi
I am enjoying your book. It has really helped me, especially meal plans section. Now I always have something prepared at home and most importantly on time. I find grocery and other shopping easier this way. Planning my mails has made me even spend wisely and usefully. I cant thank you enough for this. The part where you insist getting up on time, dish washing and Washing, i simply follow those now and I cannot thank you enough for that advice."

Priya, Cape Town, South Africa

"Hi Yvette,
I've finally finished reading your book.  It was great and I'm going to start making those daily/weekly lists after I write to you!
Now I recognize that my auto-pilot wasn't programmed properly.  I will make changes so I'm following a thought out, planned course so I know where I'm going and will stop flying round in circles.
I found this book gave me common sense guidelines to house keeping that I had never learned or asked about when I first left home.  I'll be passing on what I learned to my children and look forward to being more at peace with my home and family (instead of being peeved the cleaning fairies didn't show again).

Tracy, Kalgoorlie, WA, Australia

"Hi Yvette,
I just thought I'd write a "Thank you" for your e-book.  It has been a life saver.  Only starting this week it has helped a lot.  It's funny how I knew all that needed doing and the constant planning and (you know the rest)....You make it easier to start and you have taken the tonne of pressure off.
Thank you again.  Life is great when organized."

Hayley Richardson, Sydney, Australia

"Hey Yvette,
I love it.  Thank You.  I'm implementing and its actually making a difference already.
I'm less stressed, clearer in the mind, and I have a tincy bit of 'free time' starting to appear.
It really just hit home, the penny dropped, just how important organisation is - just how it changes how you feel, operate, enjoy your day.  Its kind of like sifting through the rubble and starting to see some daylight - if that makes any sense.  I can see I'm going to start having time very soon for the actual things that are important - like reading and writing with my 5 year old, I want to start studying again - that now seems possible."

Tracey, Sydney, Australia

"Hi Yvette,
This is the first book I am reading chapter by chapter like 'holy book' out of 100's of personality development books/ebooks which I read so far.  It's really getting on with my rhythm.
I was amazed by the changes of my approach towards life.  Your book is really super practical and easy.  I found that I had been a 'perfectionist' in my life so far.  Thank you so much."

Krishna, Sharjah, UAE

"Dear Yvette,

Am beginning to work through the Get Myself Organized strategies in your book,

It makes so much sense - thankyou - it's like finally being able to see the trees after being surrounded by a forest of things that could do with attention.

As a  wife with grown up children all left home, working fulltime and studying post-grad, it has sometimes felt like a balancing or juggling act.

I  have enjoyed  the way you gradually structure the  organisation process -so thanks in advance - these are early days but I have a sense of being on the right track and already feel a rise in confidence from knowing that it will get more organised and manageable  as I stick at it.

Keep up the great work"

Christine Riddy, Feilding, New Zealand

"Yvette,
There is nothing like moving home to get organised.
In the last two weeks we have moved to a duplex, installed our mildly handicapped daughter in one to ease her into independent living and moved into the other during major renovations.  It has rained solidly for two weeks, particularly heavily on the day of the move.  We have not established outside areas for the dogs yet so have had a very wet Irish Wolfhound and Labrador inside for most of that time (on ivory tiles - thank God its tiles and not carpets).  However, all the confusion and stress (plus a smaller kitchen) has strengthened my resolve to simplify - I have chucked out 90% of my 30 year collection of plastics, glass etc. etc.  Now we are using our "good" glasses for that glass of wine and guess what - wine tastes better out of crystal.  Also gone are the boxes inherited from Mum when she went into a retirement village and couldn't part with her memories and left them with me because I had the space.  Gone are the collection of antiquated Christmas decorations.  All the woollen blankets saved (we all use doonas) have gone to the Lord Mayors Winter Appeal (Australia).  So far the Salvation Army has received 10 boxes of crockery, pans etc.  Anything I haven't used for 2 years has gone, some things I didn't even know I had.
My husband is a builder and gone are all the bits of timber, doors, windows that might come in handy one day (except for one piece of cedar that is his retirement project).
Gone is the oversize furniture that fits the entire family around (bought for the annual occasion the whole family was together) and we found we can move around this house freely.
Gone is ALL the tarnished silverware (except for the kids christening cups and they have been sent to them to look after).
The mending box is empty - most of the stuff had been in there for years waiting to be mended - tossed it all.
The emotionally kept but otherwise worthless ornaments inherited from my great grandmother are gone except for about 3 pieces.
Gone are all the old dog collars and tags kept over the years of faithful pets now passed on.
Gone is everything I can't fit into, haven't worn for 12 months as well as half my husband and daughter's wardrobes.
So, despite the trauma and damp dogs, I am on the way as long as I can keep the pace up.
Thank you for a wonderful site and book."

Meg, Newcastle, Australia

"Hi Yvette,
I needed your book to push me to get motivated.  I have always been great a buying "organising products" eg plastic tubs / files etc - just getting down to it is hard.  I can't function when in a mess, so for example I have put my paperwork into files (as you suggested) before I can attempt to organise it.  Also I have just made the bed - even though I will wash sheets - just so I can operate in neatness and not get bogged down!! Thanks for the motivation."

"Through my coaching experience with Yvette I was able to shift my awareness onto my value system as opposed to staring at my circumstances each day and feeling pulled in a hole.  It's powerful because I want meaning, I want to live up to my values and what's right and good for me!  So, I truly learned the value of letting go and receiving the abundance of knowledge for every situation that gives life, love and meaning to who I am and what I can do, with this fearless self awareness."

Our sessions were productive, really interesting adn I so looked forward to them each week with anticipation of what I can learn about myself and my behaviours.  Every session seemed to flow right on topic of what was present in my relaity at the time and your effortless guiding of my strategies never ceased to amaze me.  I highly recommend you as a life coach and thank you again for the experience."
