I just finished reading this book and I loved it! Donna's writting style is easy and fun to read. She gives many practical advises and motivates to become organized. Great book! I am going to reread it many times!
Useful and sensible with requiring a lot of money Mar 21, 2006
You can't remember what time an important meeting is. You missed your niece's birthday AGAIN, and you have to sidle into the closet past shelves with protruding rolls of wrapping paper and clothes left from ten years ago. You know you should do something about it, but every time you think about it, the project sends you running for chocolate to stave off depression. Sound familiar? Me, too.
Home- and life-management expert, Donna Otto, finds it familiar too because she helps people like us organize our lives. She shares her strategies in Secrets to Getting More Done in Less Time, an update to her former book, Get More Done in Less Time. Donna offers ideas on managing your time, household, closets, and papers, but she also guides you in teaching your children how to help, making Christmas less stressful, and inspiring your prayer life.
Otto spends four chapters on organizing a day planner which helps with time, finances, planning, shopping, and more. She includes forms that you can copy for everything from shopping lists to birthdays to calendars to camping lists. Though the chapters on the day planner seemed a little much for my quiet lifestyle, others might find them helpful.
Utilizing humor, quotations, and anecdotes, Otto writes directly to her readers. Most of the book applies to the home, though some chapters overlap to the office, such as the chapters on efficiently caring for paperwork and some of the day planner chapters. Many of her ideas are useful and sensible without requiring a lot of money. - Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book Previews.com
