The Card File System for a Clean House

Jump to:

Something like 20 years ago, I discovered a book called “Sidetracked Home Executives” written by Pam Young and Peggy Jones.

It literally changed my life. I went from being unorganized and constantly out of control when it came to the house to having a home that was always clean and organized (even the basement!).

I had tons of free time and no stress when it came to keeping my house in order.

The secret was the card file system that they talked about in their first book.

I’m pulling it out again and going back to it because I feel as though I have fallen out of some good habits and I need the structure.

This video shows you the basics about how the system works. (This is the first video I’ve done for this site – I think – let me know if you’d like to see more).

  1. Your videos on the Sidetracked Home Executive cards was very helpful! I am a visual person and could not understand the system just by reading the book 🙂

  2. Oh thank you Bev! I love that system! It was the first thing that really got me on track. And I still have to use the cards. They’ve adapted it to digital but I just can’t make that one work for me.
