This book changed that. I now have a kitchen that has space for everything to fit into, in fact we have several empty cupboards. My son, husband, and I each have a space just for ourselves in this home. In the evenings I am now accustomed to doing some work before I settle in to relax. Now I can say that I truly do relax, because I enjoy my surroundings again. My soul is at peace.
Strongly recommend! Especially if any of you are the kind of person that fears having people stop by or fears hosting a social gathering. You will have a home that is guest friendly that you can be proud of. Guaranteed!
Many of us have read about and admire the Native Americans of Colonial America whose approach to life was sacred, meaning that their lives achieved meaning through a reverence for the relationship between the spiritual and physical aspects of their existence.
In a somewhat similar way, the writer of Organized Simplicity leads the reader to create a purpose statement that becomes a unifying principle by which a person ties together all of the disconnnected parts of one's life. From that point, the reader can begin to identify "what needs to go and what needs to stay."
In addition to providing sample purpose statements, the writer provides practical information about the wise use of time, money, and physical space, promoting the satisfying results of creating a well-managed home that becomes a "haven" for the family.
The writer's style is engaging, lucid, concise, and is sometimes as serene as a Zen garden.
As a professional organizer, I chose to buy this book to have as one of my permanent reference materials. The information in the Apendices alone will save me many times the cost of the book - for example, recipes for home-made health, beauty, & cleaning supplies.
My absolute favorite part of this book was the instructions on how to fold a flat sheet where it actually looks good! Seriously! And there are at least five pictures to illustrate it, so that is something I plan to bookmark. Up til now, mine just look like a wadded up mess no matter how hard I try, so I'm looking forward to next sheet washing day!
