This book should be given at every bridal shower... Emilie has done a WONDERFUL job of teaching us how to change our homes to be more organized, productive, relaxed, enjoyable and GODLY! She shows step by step how to get organized, without becoming overwhelmed. Emilie's Christian testimony is an inspiration to any woman... One online review called her "born organized" and that may be true, but that makes her a wonderful authority in showing us the way to total rest! :)

I had never heard of Emilie Barnes. I believe the year was 1985 or 86 in Bakersfield, CA, I was 27 yrs young,married with boys 2 & 5, a 50 hr a week job as a supervisor in a fast-food chain. I had a medium-size new home with a huge yard--and my husbands work was as demanding as mine.

I heard a seminar in time-management was to be held. For some reason I was under the impression it was to be about workplace time management. Upon arrival the forum for presentation and the attendees didn't seem quite like what I had expected--my ignorance was probably a good thing--otherwise I might have figured out sooner it wasn't going to deliver time mgmt for the workplace and not stayed--it was a ladies luncheon (largest % were nicely coiffed silver-haired retired women enjoying an occasion to get out of the doldrums of retirement years possibly and dress-up beautifully with there furs, and nicer jewelry) I had expected women in their 3pc business suit's etc. I was an exception in statistical breakdown of most in attendance.

Of course business presentations usually can be quite mechanical in delivery...when Emilie rose to begin,it was readily apparent it wasn't a presentation, but an heart-warming, humorous, exhilaration, about life---and her coin phrase "Take your house from total mess, to total rest to but more hours in your day".....I was captivated by her ideas, believability, and her exhilaration for what she had to share with us.

Her book was available that day...a purchase that continues to be life rewarding even absent of having a copy of the book. This book is the revision of the one I purchased, and re-purchased many times (I always gave my copies to others)back in those days I wasn't as articulate with my speech.

I've read more than my share of how-to-get-organized books, but this is the one that works! Emilie Barnes is such a pleasure to read, her sincerity shines through, and her ideas, if you actually follow them, really work. Not everything will necessarily work for every reader, but the basics for an organized home and life are all here. Other books of this type all seem to insist that a reader must do it their way, but Emilie shows how to do it your own way. Reading her book is, as she says, like conferring with a wise friend. It's a treat!

Emilie Barnes has some truly great ideas, and she writes in a way that motivates like no one else I've ever read. I've read a lot of books on how to get organized, but until I read this book I just couldn't find the motivation. Now I am on my way "from Total Mess to Total Rest". I have a goal now that I would love to meet Emilie Barnes and thank her in person for saving my life and my sanity

Excellent tips to get organized book. I purchased this to replace my original one, purchased about 25 years ago. I still use the same suggestions after all these years and have not found any more practical and non expensive way to life an organized life.

I bought this book years ago &reread I yearly. It has helped me to be so organized & on top of things over the year. There is an order page in this book though with an address to order from Emilie directly & I ordered twice from it through mail & never got a response or books ordered but she never cashed my check neither. I was disappointed with that because they should update that if you can't order that way any longer.
