Brighton Publishing signs author Christina Scalise for her new book
“Organize Your Life and More”

“Organize Your Life and More” shows you how to save time, money, reduce stress and clutter, and live a happier, more fulfilling life.

CHANDLER (AZ)—Author Christina Scalise has signed with Brighton Publishing for her new book, Organize Your Life and More.

One of the most promising inspirational and organizational books to hit the shelves in years, Christina shows us simple and workable solutions to a life of unorganization, chaos, and clutter. It's a rare person among us who doesn't feel the need to get more organized. Unorganization can be stressful, time consuming, messy and expensive---but there is help...

Did you know that the average home size in the US has more than doubled in just a few years? According to the National Association of Home Builders, the average new home that was only 985 square feet in 1950 is now 2,300 square feet. In spite of the larger home, many of us still can’t get everything we think we need into it.

Imagine working in a clean, organized work and home environment where everything we need can be easily located and we have the necessary space to do the things we need to do. Knowing where everything is and keeping our homes or offices organized and clutter free allows us to work and live more efficiently, be happier, and more productive.

According to Kathie McGuire, Director of Brighton Publishing, “Organize Your Life and More is an easy read that shows you how to save time and money AND reduce stress and clutter. Christina’s guidelines will inspire everyone from the serious hoarder to the everyday clutter bug who can’t bear to part with anything. Her easy-to-follow organizing tips, budgeting and financial information, product recycling ideas, and organizing challenges will show readers how to lose the clutter and gain control of their lives. No lengthy explanations or difficult directions—just the help you need right now in order to change your life into a more productive and happy one.”

Laced with humor and written in leisurely narrative, Christina lights the path through a tunnel of stuff into a new world with a richly written book that’s hard to put down…that is, if you can find a place to put it.
