Resources for the Chronically Disorganized

  • Tired of living in CHAOS (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome)?
  • Tired of the Born Organizer looking down on you?
  • Looking for user-friendly resources from fellow slobs who dug their way out and lived to teach others to do the same?
Check out these fun filled, easy to follow sources to dig your way out from under the CHAOS in your life.

Pam Young and Peggy Jones may not be the first professional organizers. Yet the two SLOB sisters definitely started a revolution in 1977. Their Sidetracked Home Executives books and seminars have helped thousands of women (and a few men) get their sidetracked lives back on track and even organized. Pam and Peggy ‘s website, shes in touch is a wonderful, fun- filled resource for anyone who feels their life is out of control. Pam also has a magical website to teach your children the joy of cleaning their room! Go to housefairy and make organizing a fun family event every day.

Marla Cilley is the Flylady.  She, too, is a SHE. Once drowning in CHAOS, she learned from Pam and Peggy to baby step her way out of chaos into an organized but still fun life. She claims it took her nine months to dig out from under the clutter in her home. Now through her books and website flylady she teaches other SHEs to fly. (She is called the Flylady because she also has a passion for fly-fishing.)
Flylady insists that shining your kitchen sink alone will lead to an organized, well maintained home. Follow her weekly missions, monthly goals and daily reminders and you will swim out of CHAOS in no time.

Cynthia Townley Ewer’s book House Works is subtitled How to live clean, green, and organized at home. It delivers on the promise of teaching the skills to do just that. Colorful, filled with photographs, easy to follow graphs, and sidebars of information, House Works works for both the beginning homemaker and the experienced but chaotic one. She, too, comes from a background of CHAOS. Her journey to an organized life began Dec. 25, 1983. She invites her readers to join her on this continuing journey.  Cynthia’s website is Organized Home

Join Pam, Peggy, Marla and Cynthia and learn to control the clutter filling your home, your time and your life.
