“I find that stuff and clutter easily overwhelms me. I don't know where to start. Everything is all over the place, and it makes no difference.
I have a tendency towards perfectionism. If I can't do it perfectly, I might as well not bother at all. So usually I don't bother at all. Until I can't stand it any more, then I spend a couple of hours, and it looks great... until the next day, or the day after.
I'm tired of it, I feel like it drains me of energy, but I haven't really known how to change it.
Well, Sink Reflections by Marla Cilley, and the website that goes with it is starting to change that. No, my home isn't sparkling clean and tidy (yet), but it's getting a lot better. I've only had the book for a couple of weeks, and unfortunately have to return it now (but I've already decided I need to own this book for myself, so I'll be ordering it soon).
The author emphasizes baby steps, that doing things imperfectly still blesses your home, teaching you how to FLY (Finally Loving Yourself).
Some people are born organized. I'm not. I know many who aren't (hi sisters!), but this book teaches you how to spend just 15 mins in a place, and see how much you can achieve in that time. Moving through the house in zones every week, and slowly, but steadily getting through it all.
I greatly recommend it. As you know, I borrow most of my books from the library, I only buy those that I really really like, and that I want to return to again and again, well, this is one of them.”
“A wonderful and encouraging book for those who feel like they are not very organized. Lovingly written. Encourages you to take things one step at a time and to make good habits. Probably the best of its kind.”Anna H wrote this review Monday, July 18, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Lots of good ideas for managing a household, and perfect for procrastinators. The book made me realize that instead of waiting until I have the time to do a full cleaning (generally a Saturday), it may be easier to do a little bit each day. The whole idea of the book is that, little by little, you can get your house under control AND take better care of yourself. Every single suggestion in this book is do-able and easy, and the tone is motivational and humorous. It really comes across that the author does care and wants to help people.”Cathleen B wrote this review Sunday, February 27, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
