Today I am giving away SIMPLICITY! And you ALL WIN!!
Okay, I’m not really giving away simplicity. Wouldn’t that be something?
And sweet, fabulous Tsh. I asked her for a free copy of her e-book, One Bite at a Time to give away, and I had every intention of buying Organized Simplicity myself to give away. (I know what it’s like to write a book and everyone wants it for free–it’s awesome.)
But Tsh happily agreed to the free e-book AND offered a copy of Organized Simplicity too. BLESS HER TO THE MOON AND BACK.
Yes. That’s what it does. May it do the same for you.
Here’s the short version of why I love it: You make a family purpose statement and then run all your junk/clutter/stuff/schedule, etc. through the filter of your family’s purpose. If it’s not helping you fulfill your purpose, say bye-bye.
And, if you live on your own, do not be put off by the word “family.” This book is amazing for ANYONE who is longing for a purpose in life & wants all her “stuff” to reflect that purpose.
Ooh, I’m getting warm fuzzies.
Tsh’s e-book, One Bite at a Time, breaks the simplification process into manageable chunks. “52 tasks. Practical. Do-able. Given to you in a one-at-a-time, take-a-breath format, for you to tackle at your own comfortable pace. You know what you should do, you just need a handbook.”
Read them both, and you will be UNSTOPPABLE.
Well, you’ll still have to put in the work, but I dare you to read them and NOT be motivated to simplify your life.
Tsh has another great book out: Notes from a Blue Bike: The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World. Also a winner. (I’ve read it twice.) (Also, there’s a fun paragraph in the travel section about our fam.)
AND she’s working on another book based on the 9 months she and her family (hubby, 3 kiddos) spent traveling around the world. (Be still my globe-trotting heart.) CANNOT WAIT to read it. You can get a taste of what they did & saw on her site, The Art of Simple Travel.
She also has a really great podcast called The Simple Show. I am NO GOOD at listening to things (I’d rather read), but lately I’ve been listening while I fold laundry & chop vegetables. I really like it.
I could talk about Tsh’s life and work for hours (and I have nooooo idea how she does all she does, because I am on day 4 of blogging/writing/linking, and I already need a vacation!), but I know you’re ready to win something.
1.) One area of your home or life that needs simplified.
2.) One country you’d reeeeeally love to see someday.
That’s it! I’ll announce the winner tomorrow morning. Stay tuned for more give-aways! (tomorrow is something very beautiful made by women in Honduras!)
