This is an AWESOME!!! book and has been extremely helpful to me already and I haven't yet gotten the truly organizational side of it yet...I've just been trying to implementing the ideas. I am so excited about this new system....a great book for anyone who is needing organizational help! :)

I read this book because I wanted to see where Flylady got started with her system. It was both helpful and funny. I haven't gotten a big 3x5 card file going yet, since I get Flylady's email reminders. I did organize my greeting cards by month in a box, and I started a list for each month of cards and gifts I need to send out. It has been a big help so far.

Very inspirational for those of us who can realte. Great system for organizing as well- I use the system (with adaptations) but no longer need the book.

I found this book helpful to set up a system on how to stay organized and keep my house clean. It is also amusing. I think it could have been written as a short pamphlet instead, but I did read the entire book.

This is the book that Flylady says is her inspiration, but it didn't inspire me anywhere near as much as her own books and emails do.

I read the original 1977 edition of Pam Young and Peggy Jones' first book. I prefer that edition to this one. They have added a section on computer programs, updated pictures and wording but it just didn't jive for me. May be in 1977 I needed the Sidetracked sisters to help me be more organized and it was the right time. Now I am organized I just need a sysmter to help me with remembering to clean the airfilters and such. Also how to manage the tons of paper that seems to accumulate on my table. This book is good to someone just starting out learning how to organize and clean a house...but for me I will stay with the orginal edition.

Good book, good system, but Flylady is what really worked for me. Check out her book: Sink Reflections by Marla Cilley.

Precusor to the "Fly Lady". Must read for Mara Cilley's "babysteppers" and decluttering in general. Lots of great tips

Very good! A great plan for "messies" like me. I plan to start their system after the first of the year. It's so easy. I know I can do it!!

Very Helpful, although it's outdated as the their website listed in the book is no longer active.

Great book to get you started in a routine and declutter your home! The appendix is very helpful in establishing a routine to work for you!

Older version of the book that started Flylady on her career. Not bad. Kinda dated.
