Stepford wife? Please! I am an educator with two college degrees and although happily married, have no children and like to work out with martial arts! This book is for ANYONE who feels like the clutter in their house has taken them over. My house was always messy and I had basically given up, thinking that there were clean people and messy people, and I was doomed to be one of the latter. I picked this book up on a whim at a local book store and was instantly intrigued. Imagine, a organizing book that makes no mention of buying nifty new containers or redoing your home to contain your crap! Flylady operates on the principal that if something in your home is causing you stress or if you are looking at it with disinterest or hate, it's time to LET IT GO! Toss it! Goodbye! This was a real novelty to a pack rat like me, and it has truly changed how I look at my home and the items within. While I am far from completely organized yet, it has made a HUGE difference and my home is far more serene now then it ever has been. I am slowly getting rid of everything that is not deserving a place in my life and I am all the better for it. This is the ONE organizing book out there that will really make a difference! Thank you Flylady!

Change Your Life... One Baby Step at a Time!

Are you living in CHAOS? Do you feel depressed and overwhelmed, especially by your house? Is your dear husband threatening to check into a motel, just so he can find the phone when it rings? Are you always running late and yelling at your babies because you can't find your car keys... again? Believe me, I understand, and so does FLYLady! She is one of us, but she has found the way out, and she is shining her light, one baby step at a time, for us to follow her out of the miry pit of clutter and more clutter! This book will change your life. If you are depressed because your home and your life are a mess, spend a few minutes with our dear FLYLady, and you will find the beginnings of the changes that have eluded you until now. FLYLady shows us how to baby step our way out of our clutter and chaos to a life of peace and productivity. You can do anything for 15 minutes at a time! Even change your life.Most of us who were born domestically and organizationally challenged are attracted to every new organizing book that comes out. I personally had dozens of them, including the system FLYLady herself once used, the Pam Young-Peggy Jones card file system. (She credits Pam and Peggy with developing this methodology, but I think she is too modest. I love Pam and Peggy, too, but their books did not change my life. This one did. I still re-read the P & P books from time to time because they are very funny, but I was never able to make that complicated card file work (although it was great fun putting it together). But what FLYLady has done is to take the germ of the idea Pam and Peggy had and make it so simple that ANYONE can do it. It's OK to start small. It's OK not to do everything perfectly. In fact, perfectionism is the only thing that is NOT OK: "Housework done incorrectly still blesses your family". You learn to establish small routines, morning and evening, and to spend 15 minutes a day de-cluttering your hot spots. And somehow, little by little, and before you know it, a transformation has occurred. No more pretending you aren't home when the doorbell rings! Your husband and friends will be complimenting YOU on how great your house looks. Buy this book! Buy 10 copies and give them to your messie friends. Put them in your daughters' hope chests. Donate one to your library. Did I mention it will change your life?

Transformed my life... in 15 minute segments

I LOVE this book! Marla shows us how to transform our life... in 15 minute segments, zones, quick routines and more. I was TOTALLY in CHAOS (what she calls "Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome"), and am still amazed that I can walk through a completely clean and transformed home at all times. It takes NO time to clean my home now, all my years of clutter is GONE, and the positive energy is spilling over into other areas of my life, and completely transforming them too! God Bless you, Flylady, you're helping women find themselves again. Once we get rid of the clutter that drains us of energy... voila! The true woman emerges! Full of energy, love and great ideas! I truly feel you're helping us MUCH more than keeping our houses clean. You're giving us a new way to think. You're so right.. that you can do anything for 15 minutes. Thanks again, Flylady!
