Do you wish someone could hold your hand and give you step-by-step pointers for getting your life and home in order? Stephanie O’Dea’s book, Totally Together: Shortcuts to an Organized Life, will give you the simple tools and hand-holding you need to go from chaos to order in your life.
This book encourages you to do a little bit of cleaning every day in order to keep up a fairly clean home at all times, instead of letting things become really bad and then having to do a major home overhaul. The book outlines what it calls “The Daily 7 for a Highly Successful Household“:
Number 1: Make Beds Right Away
Number 2: Do One Complete Load of Laundry
Number 3: Empty All Garbage Cans
Number 4: Keep Your Kitchen Sink Empty
Number 5: Clean Up After Yourself and Help Children Do the Same
Number 6: Bathroom Wipe-Down
Number 7: Before Bed 10-Minute Clean Up
Totally Together shows you how to work each of these tasks into your daily routine so they take just minutes each (or less) and keep your home in great shape and almost-company ready at all times. You know my current goal of doing one load of laundry from start to finish each day? I got it from Totally Together–and it’s really making a difference, even if I’m not always following it perfectly. 🙂
This book outlines the principles that have helped Stephanie maintain a life of order and peace in the first part of the book. The second part of the book is a weekly journal with lists of daily reminders and projects to complete to help you whip your house into shape and be able to clean less so you can have more time to focus on those things you want to spend time on.
Stephanie sent me a copy of her book and I loved it so much that I asked her if she’d be willing to give away 10 copies. I knew that many of you would find her book very encouraging and helpful, just like I did. She got in touch with her publisher and they said they be more than happy to give away ten copies.
