5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Organize Your Family is a Tool, a Resource, an Organizing Bible 1 Dec 2010
By Claudine Wolk - Published on
Deb Lillard does it again after the success of her first book, Absolutely Organized, with her follow-up, Absolutely Organize Your Family. If there is one thing that parents need today more than anything, it's more time. Lillard has created a chapter by chapter guide to discover that time. I warn you, it's not going to be easy, but it may be easier than you think with Lillard's help. It's going to take a bit of soul-searching and some discipline, but the techniques described in Absolutely Organize Your Family do work and can last a lifetime, not just for you but for your entire family from childhood into adulthood.

Lillard starts by examining how Mom and Dad do things before getting to the entire family. It makes sense to take a look how Mom and Dad treat organization first, doesn't it? Once they are on board, Lillard encourages an examination of the schedule of the family. Families are encouraged to work together to decide how the family time should be divided whether that be work, school, sports, activities, down-time, vacation, summer, etc. The book continues with chapter after chapter of tips, suggestions, charts, and pictures to help the reader navigate each area of their family's life including: scheduling and calenders, chores for the kids (my favorite), routines for the everyday, making the most of spaces, room-cleaning, a method for organizing those old clothes, and my personal favorite - what the heck to do with all of those papers that come home from school.

Lillard writes with empathy (she is a mother of 3 herself), experience (she is a professional organizer and she shares her own client's experiences as well as experiences from other organizers) and fun (she is a big proponent of the concepts of "down-time" and "good enough.") What the reader comes away with is a terrific resource to make organizing changes in home and life that will last for years to come. This is a book that will pulled from your shelf time and time again.

Absolutely Organize Your Family by Lillard is one terrific book!
This book covers a lot of things we mothers complain about. As a parent we often say ... "I didn't know that." as if it excused us/me. There is no wiggle room in this book. It tackled me and my stressors totally, explaining it all in a friendly, easy to understand, way. It specifically told me how to work with my kids schedules, letting them make choices so the kids themselves don't get overstressed. And... how to set up our family schedule for fun together. I even learned how to perserve sanity with all of the sports equipment that comes thru my front door. I am glad I read this before school started. Now I am in control! Thanks Mrs.Lillard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Busy Mom 1 Sep 2010
By Lisa C. - Published on
Absolutely Organize Your Family is a terrific book and a quick read. I am the target audience for this topic - 2 kids, full time job, too many papers, easily distracted with never enough hours in the day. I am prone to putting everything on the dining room table when I walk in the house, figuring I will put it away "later". I was a big fan of Deb Lillard's 1st book and equally pleased with her second. It's entertaining as well as full of great but simple ideas and excellent tips.

5.0 out of 5 stars Organize your family? GENIUS! 31 Aug 2010
By C. Fleischer - Published on
I was an instant fan of this author when I read her first book. When I saw her latest book pop-up in my email with the title.. well I was SOLD! I love her writing style! When I read her books, I feel like I am sitting with a friend who is giving me great advice! I can always use organizational help, I mean, really, WHO COULDN'T? From offering solutions to everyday clutter, to inexpensive storage ideas.. I love the book's practical and easy approach to getting the house (i.e. family) organized. I always stress about all of the paperwork that comes in the dreaded backpacks after school.. the book helps you with that and lots of other stuff (sports equipment, toys, artwork, clothes, photos, "collections" and more). It also gives solutions for scheduling your overly busy life, advice on setting routines and STICKING with them.. I could go on:) Definitely happy with this author's latest book!

I read this whole book in one day and started organizing the next. I especially love the sections for families of special needs children. Thank you for the great ideas and motivation Debbie Lillard!
