“They say babies don’t come with instructions, but this comes pretty darn close!”
- Stephanie Vozza, The Organized Parent
The book is divided into two parts: Part One starts off with Organizing Your Home. The first chapter discusses Transitional Organizing. What it is and how it effects you. The subsequent chapters introduce the trademarked GOPACK® Method of organizing that can help you organize just about anything! Part Two is all about Organizing for Baby’s Arrival: What to pack for the Hospital, organizing the homecoming, organizing on the Go!, General Home Organization and lots more. There’s even a chapter on Babyproofing and enjoying baby’s firsts!
The book is topped off with more than 20 forms that will help you choose a childcare provider, choose a pediatrician, track gifts received and thank you notes sent, baby gear inventory, birth plan considerations, and more. There’s also a complete list of Resources, everything from Baby Announcements to Breastfeeding to Child Safety to Diaper Bags to Maternity Clothing and more.
“If you are looking for clarity and peace of mind, this is the book for you. Stacey Crew shows you that getting ready for baby doesn’t have to be overwhelming, but can be fun and exciting. So get ready and GOPACK®!”

As an organizing expert and author, it’s always been my goal to help expectant and new moms reduce their stress level so they can spend time on their baby. As a new mom myself, I was completely overwhelmed and really missed a lot of opportunities to just be with my first baby because I was distracted by the clutter that quickly accumulates when you have a baby. Over the past eight years, I’ve organized and talked with hundreds of moms and they have all experienced the same thing and wished that they had been more organized at the start. When my clients tell me that “You’re born to do this work” or “I feel empowered because of how you’ve helped me” this is my reminder of why I do what I do. The book can help you get organized so you can stay in the moment and enjoy your little one!
“As a pediatrician who is dedicated to simplifying the lives of new moms, this book is number one on my list. The Organized Mom provides moms-to-be with a blueprint not just for organizing the nursery, but for organizing their new lives. Stacey keeps the focus on what is most important—creating uncluttered spaces to live in, and opening up time to enjoy being a new parent.”
