The Spiritual Art of Being Organized, by Claire Josefine

Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Women are particularly drawn to this book, especially women with an interest in spirituality. The principles readily complement the wisdom found in practices that run the gamut from Zen Buddhism to the Law of Attraction. It is also an excellent book for people with Attention Deficit Disorder, and for professional organizers.

Q: What is the book about?
A: Being organized is a spiritual process. After all, chaos is conquered as much by awareness, gratitude, and grounding as by a well-labeled filing system.

Organizing can also be fun.

Unlike any other organizing book on the market, The Spiritual Art of Being Organized feeds our hunger for simplicity and connection with equal dollops of humor, poetry, inspiration, personal stories, and practical advice. Structured around 12 basic organizing principles – practical and spiritual – that summarize every organizing tip we’ve ever heard, this book teaches the “why” instead of just the “how” of organizing, teaching us how to easily organize anything, anywhere, anytime.

Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I am a pioneer in simplicity-based organizing, and am the founder and moderator of the Simple and Sustainable Organizers Yahoo! group. I have taught numerous workshops on simplicity-based organizing (which incorporates the spiritual principles discussed in the book), as well as spoken at churches and bookstores on the topic of the spiritual aspects of organizing.

And, the 12 Basic Principles that provide the foundation for the book are my copyrighted material.

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: Most organizing books tell you how to organize various aspects of your life. This book provides the underlying principles that are common to any and all organizing tasks. Also, this book incorporates poetry, humor, and spirituality in a way that no other organizing book does. No other book on organizing has Wendell Berry, Tikkun Olam, Edward Abbey, and Groucho Marx in their index!

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: This book changes lives. Because of its spirituality, its quotes and poetry — as well as the “voice” in which it’s written — it reaches people who otherwise are alienated by books on organizing. If you go to the publisher’s web site ( and click on the Letter from a Reader, you will see an amazing testimonial of how this book gave hope (and practical tools) to a woman recently diagnosed with cancer.
