Learning to Downsize, Organize and Live Simply

I can't believe that I haven't written here in 14 days...I've been busy. And that's a good thing. Lots of work hours and a lot of clutter busting. That's my big goal for 2012...thin out our belongings so we can spend more time belonging together.

Last Saturday morning while the snow was falling I dug into one of my many organization books. Organize Now! "A week-by-week guide to simplify your space and your life" by Jennifer Ford Berry.  Yes, I have quite a collection of these types of book right now.  I got so many great ideas -- I'll be changing up my linen closet and bathroom cupboards today based on those ideas. 

For those of you also working on honing your organization skills, purging all your extra stuff, living more simply or simply preparing to do some spring cleaning, here are a few of my favorite books.
