Day of No Clutter (March 6)

I recently read Year of No Clutter by Eve Schaub, which I talked about a little bit here. I accepted this book from Netgalley & Sourcebooks in advance of its publication in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed this book and found it inspiring and humorous. I feel like I am constantly sorting through clutter in our home – this is the product of having two small children, a lot of doting people in our lives (NOT complaining), and from working full-time etc. etc. I have managed to purge A LOT in the last year or so, but it’s still always a work in progress to keep the papers & artwork & toys from piling up.

A post I read last week on Modern Mrs. Darcy sums up the way I feel about productivity, life betterment, and non-fiction perfectly: I need to read books about certain topics in order to live out those topics in my life. Reading books about things that I want to improve in my life helps me to focus on these things. Sometimes, I need to re-read certain books in order to maintain that theme. If I’m reading a book about bettering myself or my habitat, I generally have these thoughts at the forefront of my mind and I am able to strive towards these things in my daily life. That’s how I felt when I was reading alongside Eve Schaub’s journey in Year of No Clutter. In some ways, I expected the book to be a bit more of a how-to, but when I finished it, I realized that I have already read a lot of how-to books. What I needed at that time was to realize that other people suffer from these types of things and have managed to conquer the clutter.

Sourcebooks asked me if I would share some information this week for their Week of No Clutter during the publication and release of Eve Schaub’s book. I was happy to do this since they sent me the free copy of the book 🙂

Some blogs that talk about minimalism that I really enjoy and find inspiring (even though I am uncertain if I will ever become 100% minimalist in ANY way)
