Title: Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living

Author: Tsh Oxenreider

Genre: Home Organization

About: (Back of book) Simplicity isn’t about what you give up.  It’s about what you gain.  When you remove the things that don’t matter to you, you are free to focus on only the things that are meaningful to you.  Imagine your home, your time, your finances, and your belongings all filling you with positive energy and helping you achieve your dreams.  It can happen, and Organized Simplicity can show you how.

Inside you’ll find:

  • A simple, ten-day plan that shows you step by step how to organize every room in your home
  • Ideas for creating a family purpose statement to help you identify what to keep and what to remove from your life
  • Templates for a home management notebook to help you effectively and efficiently take care of daily, weekly and monthly tasks
  • Recipes for non-toxic household cleaners and natural toiletry items including toothpaste, deodorant and shampoo

Start living a more organized, intentional life today.

My thoughts: Tsh Oxenreider’s handy book is in an easy to read/understand format.  I love the spiral binding, the colors used to highlight important passages, and the lists (suggestions and specifics) that will make simplifying your life that much easier.  That is not to say this will be an easy process. In order to achieve the goal, it will take dedication, determination, and even elbow grease from every member of the family.  The author shares how she and her family have accomplished their goals which makes it seem like something anyone can do.

I wish I’d had this book when my family was young.  There are some very important concepts that, if stressed early on, would make living clutter-free a normal way of life.  My husband and I will have no problem following the suggestions.  I appreciate that the author points out you don’t have to go off the Grid to live simply.  You just need to rethink what are the necessities in your life.

Ms. Oxenreider states in her introduction:

My deepest wish is that this book changes your perspective on life at home.  It’s written as a jump start to get you started on a newfound road toward a simpler life, one many home managers have traveled in previous generations.

I think her book will do just that if you are willing to follow her advice.

Recommend? Yes, if you’re motivated I’m certain you’ll get the desired results.
