Total Home Makeover by Renee Metzler

Total Home Makeover

(Review Copy)

Have you noticed that some women have a knack for creating and maintaining beautiful, clean, organized homes, while others have a natural bent towards clutter, chaos and disorder?

Which group do you find yourself gravitating towards?

If you could use a little help in improving your home management skills, I’ve found a resource that can help!

Total Home Makeover – Renew Your Space & Spirit by Renee Metzler is an inspiring book that promises to help you transform yourself, your family and your home in three phases – and renew your spirit in the process!

There are a number of things I like about this book:

First, Renee writes with a conversational tone throughout, sharing her personal stories and anecdotes, coaching you to daily success!

Second, there are plenty of practical tips and forms to get you started on your organizational journey. Tasks are broken down into manageable chunks for the easily overwhelmed. Most importantly, Renee provides a whole online community of resources and support to help ensure your ongoing success!

Third, Renee’s emphasis on Daily Renewal is appealing to faith-based families – and her emphasis on family participation is welcome to stay-at-home mothers and working women alike!

Best of all, Renee’s Total Home Makeover is designed to be completed in 20 days. Yes, you heard me right – Renee promises transformation in under three weeks!

Whether you decide to tackle your Total Home Makeover alone – or with the support of a friend, a small group, or an online community – I encourage you to start your journey today!

  1. Have you followed any suggestions in the book? Would it be considered as nagging if I gave one to my husband? And last of all, do you think there’s a chance for a home with eight cats? Thanks for sharing and have a great Sunday! Purrs and hugs.

      I would say that as I read the book, I found many tips and suggestions that I plan on incorporating – as well as many things I already do!

      My first focus, which she discusses in the book, are going to be identifying our household tasks and setting up daily and weekly routines. Phase 2, getting the family involved, is a high priority as well!

      I’ll let you know as soon as I figure out a way to get the cats on board… 🙂

      Have a great day!

  2. oh..goodness…went to the website,all excited..then saw “get up 60 min earlier” on the sidebar!! oh, can do!!! get up at 6:15 5 days a week to get grandkids to school…1 doesn’t go to sleep until after 11 pm(4 1/2 with sleep issues)…due to chronic pain i only average a total of 4 hrs at the most thought the and on pattern. couldn’t get up 1 hr earlier!! guess my house will have to stay messy!! maybe i can incorporate other things though!!! some improvement is always better than none!!!

      I hear you Ann – I deal with chronic pain too so I know what those sleep issues are all about!

      I think you hit the nail on the head – incorporate those things you can – consider the book a tool and make it work for you!
      That’s what I am doing.
      As I tell my husband, when I read a book like this, if I find even one good idea that makes a difference for me –
      or that inspires me in such a way that I come up with something that I can do myself (even if it’s different than what the author suggests) –
      than I consider THAT a success.

      Progress, not perfection – my mantra for the year! 🙂

    I think organizing to an extent is in the genes. One needs lots of motivation as well. I found out as an adult that I have ADD and realized that even though I love to organize….it ain’t so easy to keep it organized.. especially if you don’t always SEE your mess

      Couldn’t agree more! I have also found that we all have different organizational styles and one of the keys to making things work is finding out what style works best for you!

      Best of luck in your quest to get (and stay) organized – once you find a system that works for you, it’s a lot easier to maintain it!

  4. I’m the author of Total Home Makeover. Thanks for a great review. I understand that 60 Minutes Early isn’t for everyone! LOL. I love hearing all the feedback, and I have to say, a common discussion is “how to get husbands on board.” I think we all long for order in our homes, and I hope you enjoy the journey to order, as I have. -Renee

      Thanks for stopping by Renee! Your book is perfect for those of us raised to be business executives, not home managers!
      I found your book very motivational and I am definitely putting your tips to good use! 🙂
