|Ready, Set, Organize! by Pipi Campbell Peterson with
Mary Campbell. Review: This book is especially valuable
because it gives much more than just organizing tips. It
outlines an organizing SYSTEM, based on your values and
needs, that can last a lifetime. There's a lot of humor but
the book is serious about organizing, from closets to
home offices to kids' school papers to other important
papers -- insurance policies, financial records, etc.

|Herbs: Growing and Using the Plants of Romance, by Bill

exactly what we were looking for. It tells about the
