The weeks before spring’s impending arrival may feel like eternity, yet I can’t help but smile as I daydream about trees showing signs of life after a long, dreary winter; thick, lush, green grass; gorgeous, vibrant, and fragrant flowers! Spring also signifies a clean slate: minimizing, cleaning, and organizing.
The mere thought of minimizing, spring cleaning, and organizing can be deterring to some, but you’ll easily find yourself springing ahead with inspiring books on organization like The Complete Book of Home Organization: 200+ Tips and Projects by Toni Hammersley! The Complete Book of Home Organization: 200+ Tips and Projects is for anyone who wishes to organize their homes into clutter-free, design-conscious, and Pinterest-worthy spaces. It’s easy to read and beautifully photographed.
Most of us strive to live a balanced life, but in reality most of us get caught easily in a whirlwind of activities. I’ll admit that there are days that I feel like I am part of a circus. My life is a juggling act of managing household tasks, working, keeping up with an energetic 9 year old, and chasing around an even more energetic 3 year old. It can be overwhelming! That’s why I appreciate creative tools and ideas that can help simplify the home. After all, simplicity is the key to a well-balanced life and true happiness.
