Very Easy to Follow Feb 12, 2007
This is one of the easiest books I've read on Organization. It has guides at the end of each chapter for you to follow. I would most definetly recommend it to anyone who struggles with getting things organized.

How Housewives can organize their TIME Feb 24, 2006
This book is geared very specifically stay-at-home moms, specifically Christian stay-at-home-moms. It is focused on how to organize your time and to prioritize activities so that your house and life are more pleasurable for everyone in them. It is not for your average person looking to organize their things, or even their life, as this book really focuses on someone who is at home, with kids, and whose primary responsibilities are cleaining the house and taking care of a family. As these are not my primary responsibilities, I didn't find much in this book that worked for me.
These techniques work Jan 23, 2006
I've applied most of these techniques and they work. I'm happy to have received this book as a Christmas gift.
I have my personal organzation area in order, menu planning down and am ready to tackle the laundry situation.
To Alison who must not realize that there ARE women who want to serve their families and the Lord. This book is particularly geared toward women who want to accomplish those goals and is a great organzational guide for anyone, I've found, even those who aren't much interested in serving others. It is hard to believe you didn't come away with anything positive to help you get organized. You must have missed chapter 11 which goes over delegating chores and skills for indendence with children, which does not support your opinion that "the head female in the household does absolutely everything". Perhaps this was merely a sounding board for your disdain for women who enjoy being the heart of a home. Hope you find your own path and may you find many blessings along the way.
