"This book won't make you rich, and it won't make your work go away. What it will do, if you have a desire to improve your efficiency, is help you get organized so that you can get done what needs to be done and go on to other things. The most satisfying reward of getting control is that it builds self-esteem, which in turn cultivates energy, enthusiasm, and happiness. Nothing breeds success like success."--Bonnie McCullough

Bonnie's Household Organizer is an essential handbook for anyone-- mothers, fathers, students, roommates, or working singles-- who wants to get organized at home. More than a collection of helpful hints or cleaning techniques, this remarkable book offers workable systems of organization. It begins by showing how to apply proven principles of time management to the home, moves through work habits, shelving suggestions, methods for training children to work, and ways to save money (especially on food), to the basic problem-solving process as it applies to home problems. Each chapter ends with practical suggestions for applying the ideas and techniques to your particular circumstances.

Whether you live in a twelve-room home or a studio apartment, have seven children, or a roommate who never cleans up, you'll find immediate help and direction in Bonnie's clear, practical, enthusiastic advice.
