Peggy and Pam were two desperately disorganized sisters. They started each day with the best of intentions, but they never made it because they were Sidetracked Home Executives caught in the disorder of misplaced priorities, half-completed chores, and undirected energies - two smart ladies who'd never used their heads when coping with their homes.

So, they analyzed their lives and set up a rotating card system that scheduled their chores on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. With a combination of the sympathy of a fellow former slob, and the firm resolution of a for-your-own-good mother, they tell listeners how they too can get organized.

    " Another home management book, I own the tattered copy from the late 70's, but the info is the same. This helped me to set up a system of breaking up household duties within the week, and yes, please refer to me as a Home Executive. "

    " I felt like i needed to do something about my house, so i put this on hold but i'd forgotten- I have my mom's copy. I think the flylady works best for me, though. cards are just too much committment. and i do already have a control journal going. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Huskey | 2/2/2014

    " Cute, and entertaining. I'm going to try using their out-dated card system with my computer. Outlook seems to have the ability to do everything the card box would do, but easier and without adding more clutter from the box and index cards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie | 1/31/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heidi | 1/20/2014

    " This book is hilarious! Their stories are really funny. It's also extremely motivational to get your life together and organized. However, the system they provide in the book really is for home executives. I couldn't really relate to the system they use, but I know it would help in the future. My sister loves it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Helene | 1/20/2014

    " Some good tips on decluttering and get kids to help around the house. Their system sounded like a pain to me. Funny writers, just not a system for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 faithful | 12/31/2013

    " Hysterical yet serious all at the same time. This was used in a class I took once upon a time for managing a home. It has some very good ideas-like a book version of the flylady. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Van Derbeken | 12/29/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 *Christie* | 12/16/2013

    " So this really works if you are willing to be beholden to an incredibly structured system. I did it for two weeks before falling over in exhaustion! But I'll be darned if those weren't the two cleanest weeks this house has ever seen! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caitlin | 12/7/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 11/16/2012

    " Very funny...my life is sometimes way too like these disorganized sisters. Since the book was first written in the 70s there are definitely some aspects that are dated. Pam and Peggy do offer wonderful advice to those of us who weren't Born Organized so that we can get our lives under control. "

    " Got me to really think about organizing my home. I read this years ago and tried to do some of the things when I had very young kids-I couldn't keep up. But it taught me some things I didn't know and helped me to figure out my own way to organize. "
