    I have been doing most of this for as long as I have been on my own. Lately, I have been feeling under appreciated, work has been super busy, and I just wrapped up my masters. Because of these challenges I have neglected my weekly cleaning frenzies and sticking to laundry day being on Sunday. This has led to a messy house and lots of laundry to tackle. I have noticed I feel stressed and out of control, I keep telling my husband I don't live like this. I read this book at the perfect time, its made me realize that I need to take back the control I once had. Cleaning days will resume on Saturday and laundry will be done on Sunday. It makes me feel happy writing this because I can now get back to my old self!

    Needed a Little More Pizazz To Draw Me InWell Written but by the title I thought there would be a lot better story line about the grandmother and her strength, wisdom, and take on life. I run my home nothing like this it wasn't nothing I don't already know and how for a long time. A better title would have been simple basics for running a home easily. Nice writing and hooray for finishing. Sorry but I've read much better systemized books when it comes to running my home. I have it a 3 because she wrote, succeeded , finished and published her book! Keep writing! It was a nicely set up book!

    Things My Grandmother Taught Me About Organized Living Book starts out with a table of contents and an introduction on their grandmother.There are chapters on food genius, morning routine, housekeeping and much more.Lots of tips that are highlighted along the way showing you how to deal with things that will free up time you get to spend with your family when all are gathered at home.Routines make it all worthwhile I have discovered and make things run smoothly.

    Good ideas but I suspect limited utility for a lot of people. Routines are very important however very few people have the time to devote a day to cleaning, and probably most people's houses would get very messy the rest of the week!It could also use a bit of copyediting as I noticed some spelling errors here and there.

    Short and simple book - more like several blog posts - about housekeeping foundations more like they were two generations ago.Which is exactly the kind of book I've been looking for for several months. The advice isn't belabored and the suggestions are doable. Her tone is encouraging and friendly with assurances that she knows the struggle.

    Short but wiseSuper quick read but to the point much like the spirit of her granparents. Could have used a little more elaboration but I'm sure that's there in plenty more follow up books.

    Makes you thinkLife is so short,it's a sad thing to live it stressing every day. We need reminders frequently to use our day wisely.There is a lot of wisdom in this quick read

    Good advice which succeeded in bringing great memoriesThis reminded me so much of my own maternal grandmother and the way she was with her routines. That made the book do much more fun to read. Besides containing some very valuable organization tips the book caused me to look back fondly remembering good times spent with my grandmother.

    Common sense approachesThis was a short book that I read for free on my kindle. I enjoyed the author's common sense approaches to organizing your home and daily routines. I also liked her brief reminiscing about her grandmother's home and routines- these stories gave context to the organizational tricks that she figured out as an adult on her own. I think everyone will relate to the idea that our grandmothers worked harder and with less, yet somehow had more simple lives and less cluttered homes.

    It's Seriously GoodIt is seriously good--as far as the material goes, but it's seriously bad as far as grammar and punctuation go. The reason for the three-star rating is that the mistakes detract from the flow of reading, as well as from the reading enjoyment. They are simply interruptions; however, if you can get past that, this is a charming, short, easily read, good-sense book. Surely the author knows someone who could have edited this book. It wouldn't have taken very long.

    Great premise, meh execution. I like the simple ideas that the author puts out there, although of course running a house the way she describes requires quite a bit of privilege: how many women have a day every week to do the housecleaning?Mostly I'm grumpy about the many misspellings and grammar errors scattered throughout the text. The book was not properly optimized for kindle, either--lots of text running away into the bottom of the screen, etc.

    Short sweet little reminder of gentle, organised livingNothing groundbreaking here but perhaps other readers, like I was, will be reminded of their own grandmothers by reading this sweet little book. Its a sad reflection on our generation and a warm look at the previous. Just remembering how horrified my own gran would have been if every pot was not back in its place before bed...

    Very short read.I would actually give this three and a half stars, not that there is any new high tech or undiscovered methods here. It is however a very solid foundation of information and presented in a positive way. I have read similar books that have been much more intolerant of the differences in people's personalities or tendencies. This book, made helpful suggestions. It's worth the brief time it takes t read it.

    Good quick readThis is book is short and sweet. Good for setting a standard of keeping house. All my kids are grown and gone, with them left the drive to make things nice. This has reminded me of the days neat and tidy. I think I will locate my lost routines and put them back in place.

    While there was no earth rocking new secret in this book, it is a nice conversational reminder about simple things one can do to make life easier. I read this in less than an hour while waiting for clothes to finish drying.One of the most important ideas in this book is that you must take care of yourself to be able to do your best for others.

    Living organizedThis short writing showed me that my routines each and every day work for me. I wondered if my routines were normal or if I had a bit of OCD. But I was raised very much the same way with my grandparents and find my own routines comforting, memorable and necessary. This book was short. Sweet. Full of reminders and to the point. Touching.....

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it reminded me of 'the good old days' of my youth and especially my Aunt who I spent much time with.. I did know most of this but had 'slipped' when my career took off. Now, I am retired and it was a good refresher course to get 'back in the groove' now that I am home 24/7! LOL! Great writing too.

    Short and sweetit was not.complicated . Simple principles that can make your life easier. Sometimes we forgo simple common sense approaches and make things entirely too complicated.

    Organized living....I really enjoyed the simplicity emphasised in this book. Our lives have become so complex that this book teaches less is more. I believe most of us need this reminder to keep us more grounded. I know I do.

    Easy readingGood ideas in this book. Simple and easy to follow suggestions. I loved to hear about she grandparents way of life and how the author could feel their love for her and for life.

    Gloria Barry's quick and commonsense tips on taking back some control over one's life are easy to read and her tone is light and enthusiastic. The entire "single" can be read in under an hour which makes it easy to re-read after the drive to stick with New Year's resolutions fades.

    It's a nice book because it combines advice with how a wise old woman organized her day/life/home. There's nothing new and magical in terms of organizing tips goes but I read these books for the inspiration and it gave a bit of that.
