Expert organizer Bonnie McCullough has the answers. In this clear, practical guide, she explains how to:
• Take control of household tasks by using a planner, making lists, and setting priorities
• Gain more free time by establishing routines and planning ahead
• Create more space in the kitchen, closets, and elsewhere
• Set up a simple, easy-to-use home-filing system
• Get kids, spouses, and roommates motivated to help keep the household organized
• Establish and stick to a household budget

Customer Reviews
Most Helpful Book I've Read........, November 5, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Sacramento, CA United States
next to Flylady's book and her website. This book gives real practical advice, page after page, and I've read a lot of organizing books! It is extremely helpful for mothers with children. If I were to only have one organizing book, this would definitely be it. I highly recommend it.

Good but some stuff is very common sense., October 12, 2001
Reviewer: Tina T from Zimmerman, MN United States
I am already an organized person but am always looking for ways to improve and this book was slightly helpful, but many things seem to me to be common sense.

Totally Organized!, April 23, 2001
Reviewer: Calico from Canada
This is by far the best book on household management that I have ever read! Some of Bonnie McCullough's ideas would take more time than I have or choose to spend cleaning, but she also offers a number of very practical, time-saving tips that I have implemented into my own life.

Incredible Help!, June 16, 2000
Reviewer: A reader from USA
I still can't believe how much this book has changed my life. I'm famous as a totally disorganized person who can rarely find what I need, who forgets about events I wanted to go to, and a packrat (a terrible addiction). I've read quite a few other organizing books and been to an expensive seminar on organizing papers. None of them really helped, I just couldn't seem to integrate any of their suggestions. But using this book, in very short time I had made some significant improvements in all these areas, and a few others to boot. A great decrease in stress and confusion! I check it out of the library & keep it as long as they'll let me renew it (6 weeks). Then I take it back, let them check it in & put it on the cart to be reshelved, go and get it, & check it out again. If I ever get enough money, I'm definately going to buy this book,

Very practical and full of USABLE information -imagine that!, March 13, 2000
Reviewer: A reader
Books on this subject seem to vary from the highly philosophical and motivational (in sort of an empty way) to those that are so detailed they're difficult to adapt to individual needs. I found this one to have just the right balance for my taste. I already knew WHY I wanted to embark on this project; I didn't want to pick up a book and read 100 pages about why I should pick up the book. On the other hand, I had a few little disconnected tricks stashed here and there but they weren't doing me much good without having my life organized from the ground up. I needed ideas for more of a general system to implement, a way to pull it all together, and this book had it. The suggestions actually make sense --don't take that for granted! I have dog-eared more corners of this book than practically any book I own because there are so many useful ideas to reference. If you truly are disorganized enough to need this book, then you need to OWN this book. Don't borrow it from a friend or the library, because you need to be able to keep coming back to it or you'll eventually abandon all the good intentions you have right now.

The BEST personal organization book out there!, March 16, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Massachusetts
Totally Organized has helped me time and time again to get my life more manageable. I am buying my second copy of this book because the first has fallen apart from overuse! This book can help anyone, even the most disorganized.

A great find, April 29, 1997
Reviewer: A reader
I have read this book at least 3 times. In fact, I bought a second copy because my sister is constantly borrowing mine. It is a great book. Practical and motivating with a lot of great tips. This book is a must for today's busy woman
