Picture it: Your counters are clear. Your pantry is organized. Your paperwork is filed, and your desk is clean. You can easily find what you need when you need it, and there aren’t any boxes crammed with mystery items lurking in your closets or filling up your garage. You now have the organized home you’ve always wanted, and it feels … wonderful.

In today’s fast-paced, multi-tasking world, being organized is not a luxury. It is a necessity. And it isn’t important just so you can showcase a beautifully organized closet to your friends. It’s important so you can live in an environment that enables you to relax and rejuvenate.

Becoming organized will also save you time, energy and money. How often do you have to search every room in the house for something you need? Have you ever purchased an item you know you already own, but can’t find? Have you paid late fees because you forgot to pay your bills? Are you renting off-site storage or upsizing your home because you need more room for your “stuff”? Are you literally tripping over piles of clutter or getting trapped in a tangled mess of electric cords?

And what about the family squabbles that begin with, “Who took my …?” or “Why is this place always a mess?” Wouldn’t it be so much simpler if everything had a place so everyone knew where to find it? And believe it or not, even young children (and teenagers!) are capable of putting items where they belong, if you create the right system.

With the creative and time-proven ideas in this book, you can restore order and serenity to your home. In the first part of the book, I will equip you to use our Major Mom Method™ to organize your paperwork, home office, kitchen, closet, garage, and car.

About the Author

Angela Cody-Rouget, AKA Major Mom, is a Certified Professional Organizer and Certified Family Manager. She served 14 years in the U.S. Air Force, achieving the rank of Major just before having her first child. Her husband nicknamed her Major Mom, and it stuck!

Angela has two children and a husband who actively support her mission: to restore order and serenity to the world … one household at a time. She started an organizing company and has helped organize hundreds of families.

Understanding the importance of strong emotional connections, Angela treasures the special relationships she has with her family, friends, staff, and church family. She also recognizes her part of a larger global family, and longs for her business to grow so that she can give more to help those in need – especially children.

Most women couldn't carry off camo and pearls together, but Angela does. And she does it with style! She's not afraid to stand out. In fact, she's not afraid of much. After spending a little time with her, you might be reminded of the following Bible verse:

“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.”
-- Proverbs 31: 25-26 (NIV)
