This is by far the absolute best book I've ever read on home management!! I'm actually starting to re-read it for the second time (and I've only had it a couple of months)It covers EVERYTHING you need to know about keeping your home organized, cutting the clutter out of your life and keeping your clutter free home clean! It is a must have for anyone starting out in a new home! Perfect for a wedding gift or a house warming present! I've always considered myself a pretty organized person and definitly a clean freak but even for a 'natural' like myself I found myself picking up new information to make my home run even smoother!! And for those who are 'challenged' in the organization process, Cynthia writes where you will not feel overwhelmed while trying to get organized and get your home under control!! It's full of colorful real pictures (not drawings) of almost everything you need to know--including how to fold a fitted sheet! I highly recommend this book, if you're looking for an easy read house management book that will fill you with lots of information but not overwhelm you with a bunch a fancy talk and make you feel like your home is not good enough then this is the book for you!! Cynthia Ewer, will take you under her wing and teach you everything you need to know about running your home smoothly!! You'll love it!!

Simple, Beautiful and Inspiring

There aren't really any big ideas here, which is what makes this such a valuable resource for getting one's house in order. It's so simple, and the principles can be applied to other areas like work and personal habits just as easily as to one's living space. The book contains beautiful photography and is just a joy to read and look at. House Works has inspired me, but more important, I am actually ACCOMPLISHING my goals using the simple and straightforward ideas within.

Fabulous book!!

This is the best book I have ever seen (and I have seen many) on household organizing. Beautifully presented with clear instructions and photos on folding fitted sheets and towels, organizing children's rooms, information on how long you can safely freeze foods and keep foods on the pantry shelf, cleaning products and tools, and many other tips on how to make life run more smoothly. I liked it so much I ordered one for my daughter as she moves into a new home -- off to the right start. A wonderful resource for any home.

Great for clutter busting

I have a lot of trouble with clutter, so I read a lot of these books--and this one is the best I've ever seen. It doesnt just tell you how to get organized, but all the photos are so beautiful and show you how to do it. This book is so funny, too. My husband kept asking me why I was laughing. He wanted to know why I was cracking up at a book about cleaning the house. This would be a great wedding gift or for a sister or a friend.

This is the best book on household organization and cleaning routines I've ever seen

Cynthia, I've long admired your excellent site, Organized Home, but this book is in a class by itself. I think it's excellent, like you I taught myself organization from scratch. Along the way I learned from great books by Don Aslett (Clutter's Last Stand), Bonnie McCullough (Totally Organized), Jeff Campbell's Speed Cleaning trio of books, and the classic by Peg Bracken, The I Hate To Housekeep book. Yours outranks all of them. They are still permanent residents on my shelf of household organization books, but yours has just become the book I want to give as a gift to young couples, new parents, new homeowners and anyone I really care about. Way to GO girl! you really rocked my socks off today! Wow what a book!
