Put It All Down In Writing
I have been looking into some life organizer books lately. I’ve found some interesting ones and decided to share some of the most promising ones here. I avoided the actual “home organizer” books here and have focused more on organizing the things you can’t just slide onto a hanging sweater shelf.
Each of us needs something different depending on the stage of life we’re in and what, exactly, we need help organizing. Some may need a daily/weekly organizer which contains important phone numbers, passwords, info on where important papers or files are kept. Others will need an asset organizer which contains info on your investments, important items and their value, and perhaps how to contact your plumber, broker, and lawyer.
There’s something for everyone here. I mainly went by ratings and while reading the reviews I queried how forgivable were the low-star reviews. If the complaints were mostly superficial and wouldn’t apply to everyone and the other reviews were quite positive, it made the cut. I hope you find this helpful and inspiring.
You can contact me, John Conca, at 530-306-3494, if you are searching for a home anywhere in El Dorado county, or if you are ready to sell your home. I’d be happy to discuss your options with you. You can find new Placerville listings here.

This book seems geared towards those without children as there is no tab for kids. It would be helpful for home maintenance schedules and remodeling information. A few readers pointed out that it is too small to hold standard size paper in the plastic folders.
This one has it all, everything you own is listed and it changes with your circumstances through the decades of your life. Some reviewers say it’s too bulky and others say it’s overwhelming.
This book is more of an organizer for your estate than the others. This type of organizing will bless your loved ones at the end of your life by keeping the burden of so much guessing and paperwork off of their shoulders.
This is a great book for planning and keeping track of home remodels, home appliances, paint colors and maintenance information.
There are a lot of great reviews for this book and it says #1 bestseller right on the cover. It looks like a good daily/weekly organizer for the Christian organizer in the house.
A Deeper Look
It is true that as time goes by people seem to be getting less and less organized, or at least we have more need for organizational resources. Why is that? I think it’s because we have so much. Yes, most people probably have too much stuff, but look at this with an eye of gratitude and take stock of what you have that’s important or meaningful to you. Those are usually the things we spend our time on; the things that necessitate care and organization. If they aren’t, then maybe some heavier organizing needs to take place.
We all have so much. And only so much time on Earth. Spend it wisely and organize it with care.
