Both of my grandmothers had nine kids each. Their houses were well-run, organized, and the meals were restaurant quality. This book sums up their secrets and made me remember that I come from a line of women that knew how to get things done. Great read.

This book is for anyone who would like to have a more organized life, but without spending vast amounts of time and money getting there. Easy little tips about how to make your house, wardrobe, mealtimes, and routine work for you instead of the other way around. The author's grandma was a farmer's wife living in a rural town, but the tips she gives apply to me, here in a busy urban center with a very different work schedule and lifestyle. It's not a super long book, so it's pretty quick to get through. And the ideas she gives aren't radical changes, so it doesn't feel hard to start using them. We'll see if I'm able to continue implementing some of them, but so far so good!

Very comforting routines, simple plans. I will try to follow these ideas. I found this book to be informative and enjoyable.

I found this book through a homesteading website. Homesteading is interesting (not because i do it, just an interesting other thought). Either way, I read the whole book in about 10 minutes, and it is very basic. I did think it was organized well, and it did encourage me to be more organized before i went to bed.

I hate when I miss the print length on a book before I purchase it. In this case, I want to at least flag it for anyone coming after me. Print Length: 23 pages.

I had purchased this quite awhile back and thinking it was an actual book, had just gotten around to listening to it today. I was very much enjoying my Kindle reading me the introduction as I was going about picking up the house. When what I believed to be the sample chapter ended, I decided to purchase the sample, completely forgetting that this was not one of the many samples that I have loaded, but a complete book. Selling this as a book is a bit like my pretending that someday at five-feet, two inches tall, I shall grow up to play in the NBA.

At the risk of being redundant, I thought I was listening to a sample chapter, an introduction to a book that I was prepared to purchase. I have to be honest, I really liked this short piece as an introduction. I cannot recommend it as an actual 23-page long "book". There's just nothing here more than a good start.

This book discusses many techniques for setting yourself up for success in organizing your home and family's routines. Also a quick read. It didn't give the reader a bunch of ridged organizational advice, but a useful list of suggestions for managing a home during these never ending busy times for working moms.

I loved the way the author mentioned about her grandmother. The ordered life of her grand mother inspired me a lot . Eating healthy in the morning - even I've heard it 101 times, she expressed in a special way that I've taken a decision to do it for sure after reading this book.

Cooking simple - cooking dishes which we are so comfortable with - Yup, that was really thoughtful. I've also started listing out my best dishes other than just running for so many different dishes.

The main highlight is, the book is so small- very easy to finish reading it and yup it has great thoughts within! It made me read it twice and I really cherish the feel of reading that book.

Thank you for presenting such a nice book! Thoroughly loved it!

I really found value in this little book. Well written and quite engaging, the ideas have been put to use in my household over the past few months and I feel a lot more organized and less stressed.
