Known as "The Procrastinator's Guide to Good Housekeeping", this book is both a manual and a self-help guide for those of us who weren't "born organized"! Lots of good ideas and insights. I found it very inspirational. I would tell you more, but I gotta go clean out a dresser drawer! LOL
Quite a few really useful tips in here. I discovered I'm not as much of a "Messie" as I thought, which was reassuring. It also confirmed most of what I decided on for housekeeping we moved (and declared THIS house would not get so bad) is actually on the right track. So it was reassuring, but not as useful for me as I'd hoped. I did find some useful ideas in it, though, and I suspect there is something for everyone. How much depends on how overwhelmed you are. I'd have needed this more before we moved--I haven't let our current house get to the state of our previous!
