    This book changed my life

    I was 27 with two young children and a mess to clean every day. This book changed my life. Step by step, page by page, the organizational skills and tools taught me how to live in my house, not hate it. Friends who laughed at me while reading it now ask for the title. It's a great gift for anyone who desires organization in their home and life.

    Great Investment!

    Finally in one book, you will find time management ideas and how to correctly use a calendar planner (I personally use the Franklin Covey planner system but any planner will help get your organized) and get rid of the paper clutter that everyone has without forgetting any appt.'s that you have made. She also helps you create your own cleaning schedule that is definately do-able for everyone. I recommend this book to everyone especially if you feel like your constantly just trying to get yourself and your household organized, but never quite get there. This book will show you how to be successful without overwhelming you. But you also have to remember, you didn't become disorganized and filled with clutter over night. To be successful you have to decide what your goals are and then break them down, so that you have a starting point and she will show you how to do just that. Awesome book!

    So practical!

    I love this book and reread it about once a year to refresh. IT shows you how to make house work easy and productive. I also went to a seminar of Mrs. Schofield and she is great. It may seem to take too much time to get organized and relearn habits but you will be amazed how much extra time you have to enjoy your newly clean home and your family also! She also has a book called Confessions of a Happily Organized Family that I am going to get today.

    Very Helpful!!

    I'm a major pack rat kind of woman. I got the old 1980's copy of this now revised book, and found that I loved the book. Every time I implement the ideas Deniece Scholfield shares, I am closer to my goal of being less cluttered. I recommend her to anyone, because I have experienced first hand a difference her writing makes.
