Amy Knapp, businesswoman turned stay-at-home mom, discovered that the productivity for which she was renowned at the office disappeared in her home environment. She started creating tools to help busy moms organize their multifaceted lives, beginning with the Amy Knapp's Family Organizer engagement calendar-which now sells over 125,000 copies each year.

In this useful book, Amy gathers the best strategies, tips and ideas in a unique approach that goes beyond time management and organizing and gets at what's really important in life:
--Your family's unique style-there is no "one organizing method fits all"
--Why it's important to pay attention to the little stuff
--If it's not fun it's not going to happen
--Expectations can make or break you
--This is for you and your family-no one else is noticing
--Organizing is a means to an end, not an end in itself
--This is the best thing you can do for your kids

About the author (2006)

Amy Knapp was a businesswoman with a promotional advertising company when her daughter contracted meningitis at the age of two months. Realizing that she was going to have lifelong challenges and disabilities, Amy sold her business to become a stay-at-home mom, only to find that her organizational tools didn't help her be productive in a home environment. To fill the gap, she created Amy Knapp's Family Organizer, now in its sixth year with accumulated sales of over 500,000 copies. She lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
