Lillard starts by examining how Mom and Dad do things before getting to the entire family. It makes sense to take a look how Mom and Dad treat organization first, doesn't it? Once they are on board, Lillard encourages an examination of the schedule of the family. Families are encouraged to work together to decide how the family time should be divided whether that be work, school, sports, activities, down-time, vacation, summer, etc. The book continues with chapter after chapter of tips, suggestions, charts, and pictures to help the reader navigate each area of their family's life including: scheduling and calenders, chores for the kids (my favorite), routines for the everyday, making the most of spaces, room-cleaning, a method for organizing those old clothes, and my personal favorite - what the heck to do with all of those papers that come home from school.
Lillard writes with empathy (she is a mother of 3 herself), experience (she is a professional organizer and she shares her own client's experiences as well as experiences from other organizers) and fun (she is a big proponent of the concepts of "down-time" and "good enough.") What the reader comes away with is a terrific resource to make organizing changes in home and life that will last for years to come. This is a book that will pulled from your shelf time and time again.
This book covers a lot of things we mothers complain about. As a parent we often say ... "I didn't know that." as if it excused us/me. There is no wiggle room in this book. It tackled me and my stressors totally, explaining it all in a friendly, easy to understand, way. It specifically told me how to work with my kids schedules, letting them make choices so the kids themselves don't get overstressed. And... how to set up our family schedule for fun together. I even learned how to perserve sanity with all of the sports equipment that comes thru my front door. I am glad I read this before school started. Now I am in control! Thanks Mrs.Lillard.

I didn't learn anything new. I hope no one made the mistake of paying for this book. A big, fat yawn from me!Published on April 5, 2013 by Hannele
So basic that I did not glean even one helpful new tip. Waste of time and would not recommend. Even the review process is unwieldy,Published on March 10, 2013 by Earl De Maris
