Another reason it took me a while is that I would keep rereading some of her great ideas and deep thoughts. This tiny book had much to offer. I doubt I will ever begin to make my own beauty products, but it was fun to read about and contemplate. I have, however, established a morning routine and it has made Relyn Rating: I have, however, established a morning routine and it has made a profound difference. We've been working hard to become debt free for a while now, so reading Tsh's thoughts was an extra boost.
All in all, just a really great book. Apr 30, Janalyn rated it really liked it. I am at the stage of life where I want to find and expand the joy of homemaking. Once I narrow down what bites I would like to chew off in the book, it will most definitely be used as a tool for me. I think the key for me is to just focus on a few ways to streamline, organize and simplify my life.
I will say there are a lot of list making suggestions, and some specific tips for those that have a "type a" personality. Some women that I know might feel a bit stifled by these suggestions so they ma I am at the stage of life where I want to find and expand the joy of homemaking. Some women that I know might feel a bit stifled by these suggestions so they may not work for everyone. Jan 01, C. Tsh had lots of really great points in this ebook about simplifying your life. I think the one that has made the most immediate impact was the idea of cleaning up the kitchen as you go and keeping the kitchen sink cleaned out.
Whether you struggle with organization, drinking enough water, or finding a schedule that works for you, Tsh has ideas that might help you.

Jan 04, Kassi rated it really liked it. As I started reading this book I visited the website and printed a list of the 52 projects.
So far I have two of them completely finished and I'm working on the third. There are several projects related to using all natural products for various things that I don't know if I'll actually do. BUT the majority of them are really great ideas that I'm looking forward to working through. So glad I purchased this book on my e-reader so the in text links are clickable!

AND because I can easily refer back to the project list as I go along. Jun 27, Jess Gill rated it really liked it Shelves: Tsh is i downloaded this book as a.
Ooops! That page can not be found
Tsh is one of my favorite bloggers, and i'm a big fan of both her books. Dec 31, Hallie rated it liked it. Some useful tips, and for the most part this avoided being too preachy. Cara and I are doing a major decluttering stalled for the holidays in preparation for moving out of the house so it can be -- well, hopefully not demolished. This was one of several internet resources I looked at, and wasn't worth the cost for my needs, though it might have been more useful for families with young children.
Apr 30, Charlotte rated it really liked it Shelves: The organization and simplifying tools presented in this ebook aren't new or revolutionary ideas. Rather they're presented in a way that makes a simpler life doable. I won't be implementing all of the ideas in this book, but I will work on several of them. I won't tackle them all at once though--that would defeat the purpose of one bite at a time! Jul 06, Sarah Milner rated it really liked it Shelves: I just revisited this book; the bite sized chunks are perfect! Some of things I've already made a habit; others aren't quite as necessary [or I've tried them, and they don't work for me].
I'm excited to go through it again, especially after having a third baby. Some things need to get back on track! May 06, Rachel rated it it was ok Shelves: Nice concept, wonderful ideas just a little heavy on the evangalism. Not bad, just not expected or what I necessarily look for in a book about organizing. Also some of her ideas on things to make my life simpler are a bit high handed.
Making my own dishsoap and toothpaste for a family of seven is not my idea of simplifying.
It was just ok. Apr 19, Jessie Weaver rated it it was amazing Shelves: Aug 23, Alice rated it liked it. I didn't realise this would be quite so parenting-focused I know she writes a blog called Simple Mom but the blurb made it seem a bit more general but it was still a good, motivating read. I'd especially recommend this to people with human children rather than a cat. Feb 07, Pamela added it. Written for busy families, but had some great inspirations for us single folk too.
Feb 05, Suzie rated it it was amazing. So helpful after you've read organized simplicity. This is one to keep on the iPad to help stay organized. Jan 07, H. Dair Brown rated it really liked it.

Jul 31, Brooke Ybarra rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this book. Certainly every project doesn't apply to me, but there were some great, easy to implement ideas. Nov 04, Missyk rated it really liked it. Not all of this applies to me, but some does, and I really love the eating the frog bit. Mar 07, Amber rated it it was amazing. Loving this book so far. I love the way she is easing me into a more organized life May 25, Kathryn rated it liked it Shelves: I'm always drawn to books about simplicity and organizing. Nothing new for me in this book. There is lots of great information for young families.
Jan 14, Payge rated it it was amazing. Loved the set up and the freedom to do "one bite at a time. I decided that there had to be other people out there like me. You know, the ones with good intentions and all the tools at their fingertips, but not quite the system in place to stay on track? So I started blogging my progress through the projects.

One at a time. Celebrate when we find a project that worked for us. For the record, all three of those things happened in the last 7 days. After all, this is life. Would you like to play along? Think accountability would make simplifying your life a little easier? Changes Why breaks are essential How I find inspiration.
Hm, I did exactly what you did. Maybe some accountability is just what I need! Blogging about it is a really good idea! This is a great idea!

I will be much more motivated to change when I am doing it with a group. Today I bought your e-book, but by recomendation of another blog. Has I type, is being printed. We all have good intentions yet sometimes encouragement and accountability from others can be just what we need to follow through with our own projects.
Excited to read more about your experiences. I would love to simply. Actually, I would just love to get organized again, the way I was before life happened. It sounds like a great project. I hate to organize so it goes better with fun, like-minded people! I take pride in the fact that I am naturally organised and a bit tight too. I still have some plates and bowls that I took to Uni with me in !
Sounds crazy, but really there is not so much need to buy new things all the time — lots of things last decades, given the chance. I brought some dishes to university that my parents had bought when they got married. Good sturdy dishes that have stood the test of time. I still have them now, which probably makes them about 50 years old. The style goes well with the ones we bought when WE got married, 15 years ago. My son will probably take them to university himself, in about 4 years. I love that we can all recognize that simplifying life should not be stressful!
That would be counterintuitive. Often setting so many goals and having the bar so high leaves us feeling worse, so I find it helpful to set the bar low and when I achieve that I feel great and end up moving to higher goals quicker.

I am onto a little get-out-of-clutter project of my own, so, I originally thought maybe I should get the One Bite at A Time book later. But your post made me rethink about it. I just skimmed through the sample pages, perhaps, those are the exact steps that could help me with my own projects! Even I have been trying to simplify my life by using less number of things. Of course, there are a number of books available for it, but to simplify things I have purchased only one.
Just finished processing my payment on the eBook!
