If you’re one of the 10 million American adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), every day is a struggle to keep your home, your office, your electronics, and your calendar organized.

Organizing Solutions for People with ADHD, 2nd Edition—Revised and Updated presents a simple but effective, long-term solution to get you back in control of your life. Written by professional organizer Susan Pinsky, it outlines a practical, ADHD-friendly organizing approach that emphasizes easy maintenance techniques and methods for maximum efficiency, catering to the specific needs of the ADHD population. Susan’s practical solutions address the most common organizing dilemmas among her ADHD clientele, while also drawing on her own personal experience as the mother of a child with ADHD. Color photos, useful tips, and bulleted lists make this a quick and manageable read, no matter how fleeting your attention span.

Armed with this unique, step-by-step approach to organizing, you'll receive the tools and the knowledge you need to eliminate stress from your home and lead a happier, healthier, more organized life.

About the Author

Susan C. Pinsky is a top professional organizer and member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), as well as NAPO New England. She lives in Acton, MA with her husband and three children.

Industry Reviews

Pinsky brings real-life experience to her topic. Not only is she a professional organizer and member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, but she is also the parent of a child with attention deficit disorder (ADD). These two roles led to her creating simplified organizational systems specific to the needs of those with ADD. The book's first section explains her organizational methods; the second targets specific areas, rooms, or events that are common to almost everyone and typically present a challenge to organize and keep organized. Pinsky uses an abundance of before-and-after color photographs as well as yellow Post-its(R)-styled notes to highlight tips for organization. Her organizational philosophy can apply to everyone, not just those with ADD. This book is easy to read, and the pictures clearly depict the look of organization. Highly recommended for all public libraries. - Library Journal January, 2007


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.
