The Organised Mum Method – Gemma Bray
Cleaning seems like one of those things you’ll get round to when the Adult enters the room, but time goes fast and OMG!
You are the Adult!
Gemma Bray has you sorted with The Organised Mum Method, and you don’t even need to be a mum to utilise it!
What is the book about?
The Organised Mum Method is a list of daily tasks broken down into 40 minutes in total to keep your house clean and tidy.
Each weekday, you focus on one room for 30 minutes and do your daily jobs over 10 minutes.
Then on a Friday, you focus on one room on a rotating 8 weekly basis and deep clean it for 30 minutes.
It sounds complicated, but it is so easy.
The best bit is, the whole method is available for free on The Organised Mum Method Blog.
So why purchase a book?
Well, the book goes into more depth and it’s like Gemma is holding your hand and going through each stage with you.
The book also includes recipes, what to do when you get uninvited guests and how to do organised Christmas 8 weeks in advance of the actual day and more.
I got this book on Kindle for 99p while it was on sale on Amazon, and while I’m pretty conversant in the method and have downloaded the paid app too, it’s nice to come back to this book and have a boost and remember what I need to if I get stuck.
The book doesn’t go into specific cleaning methods like Hinch Yourself Happy by Mrs Hinch, but it is a more holistic approach to cleaning and how to work through the mental barriers that are stopping you from having a clean space.

Gemma writes in a really clear, concise manner and shares how she started the method, nicknamed TOMM and how her eldest son also called Tom dared her to share it with the world.
A lot of people do find cleaning, decluttering and organising incredibly overwhelming including myself so this method helps keep me on track and stops me over cleaning and obsessing which is always a good thing!
Would I recommend it?
For 99p, I don’t think you can go wrong and it’s incredibly helpful and customisable.
If you want to swap out rooms based on your schedule you can do, and it’s also great to identify what you need to keep versus what you want to keep cleaning and organising every week!
I would recommend The Organised Mum Method by Gemma Bray.
