I Can’t Clean, Don’t Make Me!: The Lazy Way to Conquer the Mess by Dixie Lee Johnson is a short but to the point book about how to achieve smooth and smart housekeeping chores.
This book is for people that let’s say are not very good at cleaning their place of living and need some guidance as for how to improve on that area of their life.
The book is mostly full of personal stories of the author’s past of how she managed to keep her house clean while working full time and being a mother to two kids.
After each story or during the story useful, helpful and practical tips are mentioned and presented in a non-threating way. It feels like you have a cup of tea or coffee with the writer and you are just chatting comfortably exchange ideas and views about the subject of house cleaning.
I am a bit concerned about the issue with the pets mentioning in the book. I do not believe the author meant to come out as it did. If the pets make a mess, then get rid off it. I think the author maybe wanted to say that if you’re going to get a pet then make sure you be able to take care of it otherwise do not get a pet and add more clutter and stress in your life.
If you are a complete “slob”, then this book will help you start and gradually move on on your own in a better mess-free life.
