Book Description

Broken down into manageable chunks, One Bite at a Time provides you with steps, tips, links, and motivation to slow down and simplify.

Here’s the thing: I bet most of you know what to do to simplify. You’ve heard most of the little tips and tricks to slow down life and make tasks less frustrating. It’s just overwhelming to know how to start.

With this book, I’m giving you permission to focus on just one thing at a time, until you’ve got that task down—and then you can move on to the next one.

52 tasks. Practical. Do-able. Given to you in a one-at-a-time, take-a-breath format, for you to tackle at your own comfortable pace. You know what you should do, you just need a handbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars So helpful! September 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this e-book! I had read Organized Simplicity by the same author and became hooked on her blog, I was thrilled when she published "One Bite at a Time" as a condensed version of her best tips. I've tried the 2-week meal planning using my google calendar and it is genius! This is a must-read for anyone who feels like there are not enough hours in the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realist way to simplify October 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I love reading Tsh's blog Simple Mom and have read her book Organized Simplicity and loved it, so when I saw she was offering an ebook for such a great price - I immediately bought it. It offers 52 tips to get life in all areas under control. She is a motivating writer and puts into words what I am desiring in my own life - a life filled with the things I love and the time to enjoy them. I would highly recommend this very practical guide to organizing and simplifying life.

3.0 out of 5 stars All these tips are offered on her website April 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was helpful to me, I have several handy highlights/notes throughout. At the end if each tip she has a link to her website to compliment them. i was greatly disappointed at the fact I paid $5 for something i could've read on her site for FREE. I could see .99¢ for the kindle convenience, but $5 is unfair with that considered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straightforward, guilt-free inspiration January 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read through Oxenreider's One Bite at a Time over the course of a few days. Having read other home management books before, I found this one to be a breath of fresh air. Some of the projects she presents were areas that we already have under control in our family and I felt encouraged in that. Other projects are ones that I know I should be tackling, but needed some motivation and some helpful tips on how to approach them, and Oxenreider provides both. I've already implemented her monthly meal planning suggestions using Google Calendar and look forward to now going back through the various projects that I feel are most pressing and most doable at a slower pace.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not for me June 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The ideas are just fine, the projects are small and manageable. If you read enough minimalism/lifehacking/organizing books, the advice will repeat soon enough. This book happened to be one I picked up after reading a lot of Peter Walsh and Julie Morgenstern.

The preview made me want to buy it and read more, so I did, but in hindsight I should have read some of the blog and learned more about the author. It's a personal thing, really, it is -- I'm an atheist, and the author is not, and it really shows in her writing. I can skim over it, but I'm not going to reread it -- in fact, I didn't finish it (I think I stopped at about 72% in). If one of my friends might be interested in it and they ask for recommendations, sure, I'll mention it, but it's not for me to read again. Really wish I had read more of her to understand her voice and viewpoints more before I spent money on it.

This book has a lot of good tips and references, but is lacking in details. There are many places where the author refers to her other book "Organized Simplicity" for additional information. Here is just one example: "I devote all of chapter 13 in Organized Simplicity to decluttering, cleaning,and organizing your kids' rooms so this book isn't the place to rehash the same game plan. Instead, I want to share some thoughts on how to choose the toys your family enjoys...." from the chapter "Declutter (and rotate) your kids toys. That was kind of disappointing because I wanted to know about the decluttering and rotating! Although this book isn't a total waste of time, I would use it as more of a supplement to other organizational books and not a sole resource. If you only have money/time for one book this one isn't it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! September 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved Organized Simplicity, and Tsh knocks it out of the park again with this book. All those projects, ideas, and dreams floating around in my head now have a plan of action. This book is not overwhelming, but motivating, encouraging you attack your goals one manageable step at a time. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to move towards a more simple, manageable, and meaningful life.
