Has anyone read....?
Gosh I love the library! I was able to check out two books I had seen at a bookstore.
The first one, "It's all too much; An easy plann for living a richer life with less stuff" is written by the organizing guru on Clean Sweep, Peter Walsh. Some of what he writes about you can pick up if you've ever watched a couple of episodes of Clean Sweep on TLC. Still I thought it was a worthwhile read with several nuggets.
It seems very obvious now, but he suggests setting up certain multipurpose areas into zones. This will help me in both the garage and the basement. I can have the gardening zone, tool zone, outdoor xmas zone, sports zone. I had never really thought of it in those terms before.
Another common sense idea ( that had not really ever made it concretely into my thinking) is that the available space sets the limit for those items. If you only have one bookshelf then you can only have that many books. Period. Allow the space to set the limit.
If nothing else the sprinkling of letters from clients and fans is interesting and sometimes motivating.
Has anyone else read this book?
The second book I checked out but have not had time to read is , "The not so big life; making room for what really matters". It is written by Sarah Susanka. I believe she is an architect by training and a proponent and author of "The not so big house". I'm looking forward to reading it and was just curious if anyone else had read it. Maybe we need a book club:)
