In "Organized Simplicity," Tsh Oxenreider has done a great job laying out helpful hints for any homemaker to follow. I highly recommend this book for mothers or for those who simply want some good researched advice on organizing a home. This is my gift pick for new mothers or wives.

As a professional organizer, I'm always looking for resources to help people without calling me as often (or ever). This is a great book to help you go from room to room and really declutter and simplify your life. My first question is always, "What is your dream for your life/this space?" If you need just a little guidance and aren't too overwhelmed with piles, this book can help you reach it.

Some of the things are hard to do, or admit to yourself, but if you do it, you will not regret it. A simple, organized life is a life better enjoyed! Read the book, but don't let the information go idle.

Ok, I still have not read all of it, because I am actually organizing as I go. I love the way Tsh has written this book. Very helpful, informative information without sounding condescending. There have even been a few suggestions that I didn't think I'd do, but I am now incorporating them and finding them REALLY helpful. I truly think this will help me get organized so that my time can be better spent with the things I really want to do.

So far, I have found some very helpful tips in reading this book. I love her ideas. I have noticed that they is a lot of the same information on the website but she had already said that in the beginning of the book so it was not a surprise. I do recommend!

This book was pretty good in voicing ideas of how you can cut down the clutter. It makes you think about what is most important in your life and what the purpose of each room should be. It also provides recipes of chemical free cleaning and other great tips. Although each chapter tends to repeat itself in how to clean and what to in each room is generally the same. I also noticed quite a few typos, but in all a great source to declutter your home and live more simply.

This book offers simple, effective tips to simplify life on your own terms. It recommends NOT buying more stuff to organize your stuff, it recommends scrutinizing what you do and have to see what you truly value, and, step by step, eliminating the rest that keeps you from enjoying the valued things.

Really enjoyed the collective wisdom in this book...we have planned our first garage sale in years because of it! Very pleasant, informative read.

This book really got me thinking about what is important and what is just "stuff." We all know most if this information, but a well organized reminder is always nice.

I was excited to find this as a free nook book after having read several praising reviews in blogland. Unfortunately, Organized Simplicity did not live up to the expectations generated. It simply summarized widely known information on the subject that can be easily found elsewhere. The book failed to be either unique or engaging.

I love the premise of this book. Boy do we need to sit back and look at our busy, crazy lifestyles and ask yourself about our priorities in life before life passes us by.
