What should we do when our chores demand more hours than we have available? Call in Rulnick and Schneider, the women we love to hate, for month-by-month "containerization" strategies. Introductory chapters may ask and answer such generic questions as "How tired is your decor?" but the meat of the book is in the January-through-December guide. Each month contains a one-step-at-a-time checklist, a quiz, organizing tips (ASAP wardrobe basics or eight ways to discover your loved one), plus a scattering of recipes (such as potato boats and baked caramel corn). In between, tidbits enliven the read, whether it's a discussion of the beginning of official Mother's Day celebrations or a lead on a Web site that teaches visitors all about furniture. If the dozen sections seem too formidable, there's some breathing space at the end--retro party drinks, stocking the pantry shelves, how to play Bunco, and way too many lists. For women who have a love-hate relationship with all things that clutter. Barbara Jacobs

I hope by the time I finish reading this book (which won't take me too long because it's so reader-friendly) there will be news on what else these 2 women have to offer those of us navigating life in the frantic lane. In the meantime, I'll keep pulling out my Frantic Woman's Guide to try various ideas and tips as I make my way through my house, my life, and the year ahead!!
