Every parent knows how hard it is to keep your house clean when there always seems to be little hands undoing any progress you make. Some people are naturally organized and their houses are picture perfect replicas of pages from a magazine. Maybe you want to be like those people. Maybe you’re waiting for someone to tell you the magic formula for becoming one of those people. Well, Dana White is not one of those people and she’s not going to give you a magic formula. Frustrated with the organizing advice available, she decided she needed to write a book that she, and others like her, could relate to.
