5 ways to reduce chaos and get more organized
Do you often feel like your finances, schedule and even your thoughts are out of control? Does the clutter and chaos in your home give you stress and anxiety when what you really want is joy, peace and rest? Do you feel like your family’s health and well-being are suffering due to a lack of organization?
I can totally relate. For many years, I tried without success to keep myself organized. I’d do well for awhile then “fall off the wagon.” Things would pile up and my schedule, home and life would spiral out of control again.
I had trouble keeping track of stuff, trouble getting projects done on time, and trouble keeping anything neat for very long. I’d vow to do better next time. I’d embark on one epic cleaning and organizing binge after another, and the cycle of struggling would continue.
It wasn’t until I was injured by the clutter in my own home – yes, I was physically injured by my own mess – that I was ready to do whatever it took to get organized for real.
I started to get serious about finding organizing solutions that really worked for chronically messy and busy moms like me.
I discovered that if I regularly practiced a few basic strategies in five key areas of organization, everything else in my life seemed to fall into relatively good order. I began to experience lasting joy and peace and I even started noticing that my home seemed more comfortable and my family was happier, too.
I shared my tips with friends and family members and they encouraged me to write a book about them. So in an effort to help others like me keep their crazy busy lives organized, I wrote the electronic book, “Organized for Real: How to Conquer Life’s Top 5 Chaos Hotspots.”
This FREE e-book is jam-packed with 76 pages of helpful (and practical) information about how to organize your mind, your schedule, your food, your finances and your home. And it is available now! I am so excited about this e-book because I truly believe it will be life-changing for many of you. The principles in this book have rocked my world!

is there a way to pay/purchase without using paypal?
Great question, Melinda. The platform is specifically set up through PayPal but that doesn’t mean you have to have a PayPal account to make a purchase. After you click “Checkout with PayPal” at the bottom of the sales screen, it will send you to the PayPal interface where you can choose to checkout as a guest (if you don’t have a PayPal account) and/or simply use a credit or debit card.
My house was very, very disorganized and then I retired. It took me a few months but my home was so organized that my life was a piece of cake. Then we decided to renovate the entire upstairs so what could be brought down stairs is now in our dining room, in our summer furniture storage outside, in our bedroom. In other words it is a mess. I never realized how much time I wasted trying to find things. The insulators will be here tomorrow and the sheetrockers on Monday so I can see the end. I can’t wait to get organized again.
I’m sure you’ll be organized again in no time after your project is done. Best wishes to you!
Hi, Susan. The book looks great, I just bought and downloaded it but I cant open it! Help! I’m on a tablet. Thanks!
Thanks so much for your purchase, JoAnn. I hope the book is super helpful for you. In order to open a pdf on a tablet, you’ll need to make sure you download a pdf reader on your tablet. Here’s a link to get the Adobe reader for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.adobe.reader&hl=en. For more information about how to read PDF on Android phones or tablets, here’s a good resource: http://www.pdfmate.com/how-to-read-pdf-on-android-phones-tablets.html. (The article mentions phones, but the concepts should be the same if it’s a tablet.) If it’s an iPad you have, here’s a good resource: http://www.pdfmate.com/read-pdf-on-ipad-iphone-ipod.html. Hope this helps! If you have additional problems, please let me know and I’ll do my best to help fix the issue.
I downloaded both apps and still cant open book. 🙁
JoAnn, In order for me to troubleshoot for your specific issue, could you tell me the name of the tablet you are using? I’ll connect with my IT guy (aka the hubs :)) this evening and we’ll help fix this problem for you right away. I suspect you may need to convert the file to an ePub (not hard and it’s free to do), but I need to make sure before I give you instructions. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Thanks for your help! As you can tell im not very tech savvy…lol! I did download that converter app you sent link for. I have aSamsung Tab 2.
I purchased your new e-book over the weekend via my iPhone and have not received it. I went through pay pal and they indicate I need to contact the seller. Argh! Technology is wonderful but so frustrating at times!.
Looking forward to hearing back,
My kiddos paper (crafts, projects, school papers, homemade maps…) is my nemesis!! Would your lovely book help me?
Love the infro on how to stuff a sagging sofa. I haven’t done it yet but how do I get a pic to you after I finish the project?
