Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Tidying Up!

I've been on a mission to neaten, tidy and brighten our home, so I was thrilled to get the opportunity to review a book on tidying!  The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing was exactly what I needed to teach and motivate me.

Her how-to book is short and easy to read - 206 small pages.  It's full of stories and strategies.  Don't expect an idea book on home storage!  This book is all about getting superfluous stuff out of your house and holding onto the stuff that brings you joy.  She takes you step by step through clothes, books, papers, and memorabilia.  She will challenge you to touch every item in your house and decide whether or not it really fits you and your family.

Since reading her book, I've taken 7 big bags to our charitable thrift shop and I have 2 more bagged and ready to go.  Already life feels more simple and clutter free.  This will REALLY help as we bring baby #4 into our family, because we will have stuff for adults, teens, children and babies around the house!

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
