I love this book. It had very easy and practical tips on getting organized. I have used almost all her ideas and my life is much simpler now, thanks to Emilie Barnes.

This book is a wonderful resource for busy women who are stretched (and stressed) in every direction. It is filled with hundreds of practical ideas and suggestions for becoming organized which anyone can do. I followed the steps in the chapter titled 'Total Mess to Total Rest'. As a result, my home is in order, I am less tired and I have more time to devote to my family and to other things that are important to me. I highly recommend 'More Hours In My Day'.

I thought I was buying a book about how to organize my house not an instructional on how to be a traditional woman the way god wants so that men will open doors for me. There may be some good tips in there, but there was so moch overwhelming god talk that I couldnt get to it. Glad it was under $3 but wish I hadnt even spent that much.
