IntroductionPeople marvel at how organized our home is. They even peek into our cupboards just hoping a mess is inside. They're usually disappointed.

I like that this book talked about how being organized includes mental/spiritual space, but found it really preachy. I could skim the religion-preachy, but I really couldn't take the book seriously anymore when the author declared that if you read so many books a month, you have too much time on your hands! Clearly, there's an epidemic of too much reading in this nation. Sigh.

I'm a new homeschooler and not finished setting up my system but didn't find much help here.
