Synopsis (from Amazon):
Organized Simplicity’s aim is to convince its readers that simple living is the absolute best way to live. Be it with house cleaning, family schedule management, personal finances, and managing the "stuff" you allow within your four walls, the only way to live well is to do so intentionally and simply. The first half of the book delves into the "why" behind realistic simple living, giving the reader a nail to then hang the how of living simply discussed in the second half. And by redefining the too often-used phrase "simple living," a busy home manager living in the real world can then make practical changes that work for the whole family. There are chapters for cleaning and organizing the home room-by-room, and future project ideas will inspire readers to turn their house in a haven they love.
I really enjoyed this book! (See my reading updates)
In my opinion, the book started out a little slow. It seemed more of a back story on why the author adopted the techniques that would later be mentioned in the book. If I’m being honest, I really didn’t care why THEY did, I was looking for the information that would allow ME to. If that makes any sense.
I was really getting bored with it and about to put it down when the REAL information started being discussed. After about 50 pages I was hooked, and had out a pen and paper and was taking notes! I loved all the info, tips, and LISTS! OMGosh the LISTS! I am a list girl and they will definitely help me on my journey to a less cluttered life! I have a hard time working everything in that I “need” to do in a day and the EVERYDAY BINDER thingy discussed (and PRINTOUTS!) will be a life saver for me! I have already printed out my first Checklist and Daily Docket!
I say if you are feeling overwhelmed with “To Do”s and just general clutter – pick this book up. It is so worth the money. I have the kindle version of it, which was free on promotion but liked it so much that I am going to try to pick up a printed copy – so I can have ALL of the check lists! A must have for any busy mom.
