Simplify Your Life: Get Organized and Stay That Way Reviews

  • Leigh Ann

    I found this book to have a ton of easy practical steps to organize my home and I've been using some of the ideas this summer. My house is looking MUCH better!!

  • Margot

    is an excellent book on getting organized. The recommendations in it are accessible and easily and immediately applied to one's daily life. I found the examples and instructions much more concrete and applicable than in most other organization books.

    As a warning, it is written with a religious slant but not overbearingly, so it's easy to skip over if you're not interested in that element.

  • Susan

    I read this a few years ago. One of those things I picked up in an airport and read on the plane. I actually refer back to it when I'm feeling particularly disorganized. It's laid out in a nice way and gives some interesting perspectives on simplifying. For some reason, it's strangely comforting to me.

    An upbeat - you can do it - message. The author breaks down each room in small chunks and gives time estimates for each job. If you start this programme, my advise is to take before and after photos and team up with someone like-minded. I did just that and it turned out to be a lot of fun and kept me going when I would have been distracted. Your partner doesn't even have to live in your town if you take and share the before and after photos. I would have liked to have seen more details for home

    A really good book to help you get back on track with organizing and accomplishing more in less time. It is truly helpful in getting you motivated.

  • Shannon

    This was a pretty good book, although it covers a lot of territory that is better-covered in her later book, Simplify your Space. Still i got a lot of ideas.

  • Donna

    This is the most overtly religious of the organizing books I've tried, and it's aimed solely at women. While I could have done without some of its assumptions, it's still the most practically helpful organizing book I've come across so far.

    The author's PuSH method made little sense to me, even after all the examples I found it hard to differentiate between the System and Habit categories. But her strategies for avoiding paper pile-ups have already made a big difference in my stress level.

    The tip

    This is the most overtly religious of the organizing books I've tried, and it's aimed solely at women. While I could have done without some of its assumptions, it's still the most practically helpful organizing book I've come across so far.

    The author's PuSH method made little sense to me, even after all the examples I found it hard to differentiate between the System and Habit categories. But her strategies for avoiding paper pile-ups have already made a big difference in my stress level.

    The tips on scheduling and cleaning may seem like common sense to some, but they were exactly the type of suggestions I was looking for. Even in the sections that weren't relevant to me personally, I liked that the book focused more on specific advice than on motivational pushes or long explorations of the psychology of clutter.

  • Hope

    In Simplify Your Life, Ramsland encourages list makers (like me) to live horizontally rather than vertically. A vertical person looks at a long "to do" list from top to bottom and becomes overwhelmed. A horizontal person looks at a calendar ("the big picture") and sees where active days have to followed up with lighter ones. Programming quiet and alone time after a day of heavy social interaction has been revolutionary for me.

    When I need to know how stay at home moms that teach Sunday school and sing in the choir keep all their Bible studies organized between soccer practice and PTA, I'll pick up this book again. Until then, uhh, no.

  • Jackee

    This book had many great tips to help women get and stay organized both at home, at work, and mentally. My favorite tip so far is building transitional, trigger activities into our lives. I'm going to use that to see if it helps me keep my brain living more in the present activity a little better (i.e. not bringing work home with me or home to work with me).
