I did it! What a sense of accomplishment! I just finished reading a book primarily about getting your life (simplifying) and home (spring cleaning/organizing) in order! I was plugging along nicely on the read until it hit me...The author actually has an expectation that I APPLY what I was reading! Ya know? Is it too much to ask to JUST be left content READING about improving without actually having to bother with the whole APPLICATION business? ;) Mm Hmm. It's one of "those" books.

Truth be told, I actually find cleaning and organizing to be cathartic. Which was the reason I was drawn to Organized Simplicity in the first place. I experienced every reaction from: 1) "You go girl! I'm right there on that soapbox with you!" 2)"Oh, that makes sense. I'll have to try it." 3)"Yeah. I'll have to work on that." [Head down. Tail between the legs.]

It's a tidy and well-organized book. I found myself cleaning a lot along the way. But not the items suggested. Because I'm a rebel. I enjoyed the focus on family/relationships vs. acquiring stuff and overbooked schedules. My on-the-ball friends will find much of it to be common sense. In other words, how useful it is depends on where you're coming from.
