A Reference You Will Refer To Again And Again
This easy and fun read has an incredible amount of information packed into 203 pages. It is filled with great tips and advice on organizing the entire family. Whether you have toddlers or children in college this book helps create a sense of family, responsibility and unity within the home. Christina's common sense approach is written with a caring and compassionate tone. Even if you consider yourself an organized person there are ingenious tips in this book that can only be written by someone who has a long history of helping people organize their lives. The Help Wanted board and Chore Sheet are two ideas of many mentioned in the book that I have implemented with great success. The Organizing Challenges keep you motivated and allow you to celebrate little successes as you work your way to complete organization. A must have in our fast paced world. Highly recommended.

The cover says very little about how this book tells you so many different ways and things to do to finally throw out the chaos of all the things in your life from clothing, kitchen and files. Everything you can possibly think of is covered in this book on how to get all of your life and home organized and off your nerves.
A few of the great ideas that I've seen inside of the book are located in Chapter 4 section 1. Help Wanted. The idea of posting a Help Wanted on the fridge. She's right, sounds silly, but think on it for a moment. Would you want to post a sign and offer to let your children earn either money or an extra privileges, or have to do it all yourself and never get the house organized to where you have any time to slow down and not be able to unwind and rid yourself of some stress?
Mrs. Scalise mentions that this is also a good thing for you and them. They learn responsibility by doing this (those are my words). (Her words, but not exact words.) They earn a little extra money for something that they want, a new privilege or even a new movie or CD, game or something. Either way, they can earn their way to one of those items by helping with the Help Wanted. On the Help Wanted sign that you post in the kitchen, be sure to put down things you need done.

This book is great! Most organization how-to's give you a rough generalization of methods to simplify things but don't help with figuring out all the little things that add up to most of your day. This book gives you specific and detailed ways to streamline your everyday life and improve the way you and your household function on a day-to-day basis. It covers everything from controlling clutter to managing your bills to how to remember all those things you always forget, and even how to get your kids to help with the laundry - oh yes, it can be done!
This book is easy to read and is a must-have for moms everywhere!
