The Simplicity Project

“Win Your Battle With Chaos & Clutter So You Can Live a Life of Peace & Purpose” Wow. Sign me up! That seems like a big boast doesn’t it? Well, after reading through this new book by Corie Clark, I’m convinced it can be accomplished. Planning and being intentional seem to be the key. How many times have you come home at the end of the day only to walk into the house and be greeted by the “stuff” you didn’t put away before you left in the morning? Pick a room. It doesn’t really matter. I’m guessing a majority of us are living our lives just like Corie Clark. Thankfully, Corie wrote this new book to encourage us all that we can win the battle.
Corie covers five areas of potential chaos and clutter, and how to begin the battle toward conquering each of them. The five areas include: 1. Simplifying Your Health 2. Simplifying Your Home 3. Simplifying Your Finances 4. Simplifying Your Time 5. Simplicity Now While each of these five areas are important, the one hitting home the most for me is, well, Home. I love a picked up, not cluttered, home. I, however, do not enjoy being the one to pick up and de-clutter the home. Odd, huh? A neatly organized home brings me peace. It allows me to relax and not obsess over what I should be doing instead of what I am doing. I find I am able to read and write more when the clutter is gone. Here’s one particular quote I like: “If you start to become disciplined in one area, it’s contagious. You begin to feel the sense accomplishment and let it carry over into other area.” True. True. True. I think we all know this, but many time we need a refresher course. Success in one area of life typically leads to success in other areas. “The Simplicity Project” does a great job of simplifying what you and I have probably read in many other books. There is a great 28-Day call to action at the end of the book to help walk you through your personal journey to simplicity. The book also offers bonus content of a private Facebook Group, printable plans to help you through the Project, and a daily email of encouragement. Corie lives a busy life like you and I do. She’s “normal”. Corie is a regular Wife, Mom, Daughter, Sibling, trying to “do life” the best she knows how. And now, she’s written a book to help you and I do the same thing.
