Getting It Together: How to Organize Your Space, Your Stuff, Your Time—And Your Life

How is back-to-school treating you? Are you on top of your assignments and after-school activities? Is your room a great place to relax and work, or is it a pile of piles—of clothes, of papers, of toys, of … stuff? It’s hard to relax, have a good time, and get decent grades when your chaos works against you.

Right now, it may seem as though it’s just too much to take on, but once you get in the habit of treating your time and space as valuable, you will find your days can be much less stressful. No more running late, losing important things in the piles of unimportant things, or procrastinating on projects. It’s not hard. It just takes consistency and a gentle push in the right direction.

Getting It Together (A Smart Girl’s Guide) shows you many of the habits that can depress your day and then tells you how to change them without ever being super judgmental. Whether you are a clutter queen or time management is your tyrant, this book can be a huge help in improving your day-to-day experiences.

A Smart Girl’s Guide… is a series of useful, true books from American Girl that helps growing girls deal with sometimes difficult situations, such as friendship troubles, families, worry, crushes, liking themselves, dealing with divorce, making and handling money, going online, getting a sense of style, and going to and giving parties.
