1.0 out of 5 stars This was not what I was expecting, is seriously outdated and almost completely uninspiring.
By dawn fjeld on December 17, 2020
I am going to be frank. This book is terrible, in my opinion. The life that she and her husband have carved out for themselves works for them but her suggestions are somehow simultaneously generic and very taste specific. For instance, eliminating houseplants "Keeping nature outdoors, where God intended it to be" is totally unrelatable to me. The beautiful plants in my home are a testimony to the rewards of simplifying my life. Simplifying your eating by basically eating the same foods all the time (I quote: "I mean, why should I spend a lot of time cooking when our favorite meal in all the world is a bag of blue corn tortilla chips with fresh guacamole?" and a basic rule that meal prep for her and her husband shouldn't take more than ten minutes. I don't know many people who are looking to simplify their life in this way. There is actually a chapter called, "Eat a Muffin" where the author shares her bran muffin recipe and you can do like her and her husband and bake up a double batch every two weeks even if it takes 15 minutes and breaks the 10 minutes rule and then, freeze them and microwave them. Yes. You are about to buy a book with a chapter telling you to eat a muffin. There is also the chapter on throwing out all OTC medicines except Aspirin and the one on bowing out of the holidays. Skip outside entertainment. Rethink inviting friends over for dinner because it is too much trouble, a chapter just to tell us to cancel magazine subscriptions, a chapter to tell us to cancel newspaper subscriptions, drink only/mostly water... I hope you are getting the picture. There are some good ideas, IMO, but I have heard or thought of most of them or could have read them on Pinterest or anywhere else when I Google this subject.
It can't be helped that it is outdated. I won't fault it for that but be warned. ("Get rid of your car phone" is probably just one of the chapters you'll skip over entirely.) It's not my nature to be critical like this. I just thought I'd save someone the disappointment. To be gracious, perhaps at the time of this original publication these ideas were nouveau. At the very least, today, they just aren't.
