Totally Organized: The Bonnie McCullough Way

Bonnie Runyan McCullough. St. Martin's Press, $17.99 (299pp) ISBN 978-0-312-80747-4

McCullough, a syndicated columnist and author of Bonnie's Household Organizer, here tackles the subject of housework. The key, she writes, is setting priorities, and her strategy is to create a series of home-organization systems that help get routine tasks done quickly and efficiently so that one can go on to other things. She is full of hints for organizing time and thoughts, doing specific tasks efficaciously, creating more space and less clutter, and getting other people to help. Although addressed to housewives, this book is pertinent for househusbands, single parents and the many other people who have more important things to do than clean house all day. (May)
