I picked up this book awhile ago because I'm neatness challenged. I read it through and was very entertained by these two "local girls make good," but didn't really do anything with the information. About two months ago I realized that I was not willing to live with all of the clutter anymore, so I started with this book. I haven't implemented the card system that they show in the book, but have used their method of decluttering. Fully 1/2 of everything in my house is 100% unnecessary, and has taken a trip to the goodwill or recycling. I can clean in half the time, and things stay neat, not just neat until an hour later when a pile of papers tips over, or I have to root through a drawer or closet searching for a misplaced item. Really, truly neat. Thanks Pam and Peggy!
