This month I read the book Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living as part of my 12 books in 2012.
If you are looking too bring more organization into your life and home, then this book is for you, as it is filled with a lot of practical tips for simplifying and organizing.
It reminded me again life is short and I can not do it all. The author stressed taking time to write up a family statement and then planning our life around those things we included in our family statement. We don’t feel like we need to do everything, it is ok to say no to things.
It also made me want to do a serious deep cleaning of some cupboards and closets. I don’t feel like the rooms in my house are full of clutter, in fact I feel they all border more to the side of having a minimal amount of things in them. So when the author talked about hauling everything out of each room and then only bringing back in the necessary items, I didn’t feel that applied to me as much. But I can certainly think of some closets and cupboards that could use some help.
Organized Simplicity is a great read to aid you in getting your act together and dreaming big dreams about how you really want to live your life.
For the month of April I plan to read the book Creative Corrections.
