Editorial Reviews

From the Author

New York Times-best selling author, Stephanie O'Dea, is back with a must-have planning guide for busy moms. This daily all-inclusive planner will whip your household into shape with easy daily chores that anyone in the family can do. O'Dea's "Daily 7" chores are listed on the side with check-boxes, and each week has specialized tasks that are essential for keeping your household running like a well-oiled machine.
 
Gentle reminders for moms to remember to take care of themselves, including monthly prompts to conduct a self-breast exam make this planner different from all the rest --- this is truly a system to get organized, inside and out to create a new, improved, and Totally Together you!

This daily planning guide is set to follow the school-year calendar, but because it is spiral-bound and hand-dated, readers can begin at any time of the calendar year. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Stephanie O'Dea is a New York Times best selling author, award-winning blogger, and a mom of three.

O'Dea likes shortcuts. A LOT. Her websites and books have reached more than 12 million people from all over the world.

She shared her number one cooking shortcut in 2008 when she made a New Year's Resolution to use her Crock-Pot slow cooker everyday for a year and write about it on the Internet.

Her award-winning blog resulted in two cookbooks: Make it Fast, Cook it Slow and More Make it Fast, Cook it Slow. Due to a family allergy, all of the recipes happen to be completely gluten free.

O'Dea compiled her housekeeping, parenting, and meal planning shortcuts in Totally Together: Shortcuts to an Organized Life.

In this book/organizational guide, O'Dea tackles how to organize a busy household so anyone can have a "tidy and tranquil home in just minutes a day". The format for this book will be a weekly planner (with checklists!) that can begin anytime during the calendar year.

Stephanie has appeared on Good Morning America, The Rachael Ray Show, featured in Real Simple Magazine, Woman's World, and Oprah.com. For a more comprehensive press listing, please visit her online home at stephanieodea.com.

I love Stephanie O'Dea's crockpot blog and was intrigued when I heard about this book.

I feel like I can now manage the household tasks now that someone else has told me which ones to do & when.

Stephanie's approach to 7 daily tasks and one bigger task per week is exactly what I needed!

I need help organizing my cleaning and my life. Fly Lady overwhelms me and leaves me feeling like a failure before I complete one day! No so Stephanie and Totally Together. I've found a schedule I can live with plus a system to keep my house clean and myself sane. I love that Stephanie understands that life happens and you're not always going to get to everything everyday. Her system is flawless in that it allows for that, it's easy to pick up, keep going and keep making good choices to make life easier. I really recommend the Totally Together system.

I have found Stephanie's crockpot cookbooks especially helpful and to be signficant time savers, so I had high expectations for her latest work. Thankfully, she delivered! The book takes the overwhelming tasks of keeping a household organized & breaks down the tasks by week. I feel like I can now manage the household tasks now that someone else has told me which ones to do & when. I highly recommend this book and know that as the weeks pass, my book is going to become tattered from all of the use!

I just have to say I received my copy the 3rd of August and have been striving to apply the daily 7 and what a huge help just that has been so you can imagine how great the rest of this is!
Thanks Stephanie and keep going with this.

I love Stephanie O'Dea's crockpot blog and was intrigued when I heard about this book. When I first received it, I read it in one day and was surprised at how short the actual book was. After the chapters outlining her techniques and ideas, the rest of the book is a weekly checklist/calendar reminding you to accomplish certain tasks each week. Some of the items change each week (i.e. one week you launder linens, and the next you clean your car, the next you work on holiday shopping, etc). So at first, I wasn't sure how helpful this book would be....But after a couple of weeks, I am SO glad that I purchased this book! It has surprised me by holding me accountable (due to the checklist each day) to accomplish the Daily 7. I am gradually easing into the purging (aka PROM) of my home and clutter. So while the actual chapters of this book are short, the techniques and ideas are great and useful, and the checklist/calendar in the back of the book is very helpful on a day-to-day and week-to-week basis for setting and accomplishing goals. I would definitely recommend this book! The main reason I chose 4 stars instead of 5 stars, is that I DO wish it had more content.

This organizer is really geared more to a mom who has kids (and probably a bit of time at home). It didn't feel relevant to me. Also, the cover didnt seem durable enough to stand a busy persons life. I love the cookbooks -and Stephanie. Will probably gift it to someone else who could benefit.

I follow Stephanie's blog for slow cooking & when I saw she had written this book I pre-ordered it from Amazon. I am 17 weeks pregnant and still sick as a dog! My house, laundry, dishes, and life seem to be more than I can handle right now. With child number three on the way, I really felt like I needed someone to tell me when to do "forgettable" tasks like clean the microwave or organize my closet.
Stephanie's approach to 7 daily tasks and one bigger task per week is exactly what I needed! Now I feel like I have a cleaner house and am more on top of things, even though I still don't feel that great.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has difficulty keeping things in order, and since that is most of us, Stephanie has really put together a non-judgmental, encouraging, easy approach to cleaning and maintaining your life.

I really like how this datebook/planner is structured. You can start anywhere in the calendar year and fill in the dates as you go. I love the weekly and daily checkbox features. I can leave it open and let the kids check off the chores they've done. I like the look and size of it too. My life has been too chaotic recently and the ability to check off basic things that I should be doing every day makes me feel as though I am accomplishing things.

Highly recommend.

I bought this thinking it was a book about organization, so I was surprised at how small it was. But now that I have read it and set up the planner I use it almost everyday. I am very forgetful and get overwhelmed easily with household chores, this has helped me set up a system and follow through on it. I do think however it is a bit pricey for a planner.
