If Maxwell's cure is the Gold's gym of organization, Flylady.net is the Curves. It reads very "mom" –which is not meant as a bad thing by any means- it’s just very specific. We think any way you clean out the clutter is a good thing.
Joining Flylady.net is free, and means daily emails with lessons, and guides to get your life (and home) in order.
One tidbit of advice? “Always keep a sparkling sink, so that you wake to face cleanliness” Done.
