Home organization books… asking the expert

On today’s episode of Nonfiction November, we’re talking about Expertise.

Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert, hosted by Katie at Doing Dewey: Three ways to join in this week! You can either share 3 or more books on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert), you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic that you have been dying to read (ask the expert), or you can create your own list of books on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).


Anyone else completely hooked on home organization books? If so, let’s talk!

Last spring, I posted a list of my favorite books about home organization, and I’m always looking for more ideas.

Here are some examples of books I’ve read, loved, and lived…

My fellow organizing wonders… I’d love to hear which home organization books are your favorites! Please share your suggestions in the Comments… I’m all ears.

    I’ve read a few home organization books this year, too. I liked Home Sweet Maison by Danielle Postel-Vinay, the Swedish Death Cleaning book, and Outer Order, Inner Calm.

    For home organizing I like Houseworks: How to live clean, green and organized at home by Cynthia Ewer. More practical advice vs. cozy/decorative but still inspiring.

    I’m a true crime junkie so my “Be the Expert” topic is forensic science. Currently reading No Stone Unturned: The True Story of the World’s Premier Forensic Investigators by Steve Jackson. Have also enjoyed Working Stiff by Judy Melinda, Death’s Acre by Bill bass and Forensics by Val McDermid.

    I got my mom The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up for Christmas last year and she loved. I’ll have to steal it back and read it for myself!

  4. I’m currently reading Gretchen Rubin’s book Outer Order Inner Calm. It’s making me want to drop everything and clean my house! ha. Many of these books look so good to me. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow. There are a lot of organizing books available. Almost makes me feel like I have to go buy a plastic bin to store them all in, because I always get them and never read them. If you saw my house that would be immediately apparent. 🙂

    Very fun topic! I love an organized home and think I’m decent at it, though I’d love to get some tips from these beautiful books. What I really need are books for keeping me organized at work where I often feel like a hot mess!

    Unfortunately, I don’t have any suggestions for you, but I love all the books on your list! I’ve only read Marie Kondo’s, but I have my eye on a few others.

  8. Just looking at the covers alone make me feel more organized. That’s a great collection. I could always use help in finding new ways to creatively stack books.

  9. I’ve not read many books on this topic, but I was surprised at how well Marie Kondo’s approach to deciding what to keep worked for me! I loved The Happiness Project, so perhaps I’ll try Gretchen Rubin’s take on organization as well. Great list!
