Meet the Author

Tina Razzell is a happily married mom. Originally from England, she now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

As the children arrived, so did the clutter. It took a drastic move across continents for her to realize that she didn’t need all her possessions and that less is better. She’s been getting rid of stuff and helping others to do so ever since.

Her first book is titled Homeschooling Boys – Gaining Maximum Success from Minimum Cooperation. This is her second book, and her first on the subject of getting rid of clutter.

    Permission to take care of yourself and your home

    This is a very practical guide to taking care of many aspects of your life. It is clearly written and gives precise details of how to get rid of "stuff". I learned how to freecycle. This is a timely reminder that Mom does not have to do it all.
