Organized Simplicity – A Giveaway

This giveaway has ended. Winners will be announced on December 12th!

I‘m writing today because of a beautiful package that arrived on my doorstep recently. It’s Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living by my friend Tsh Oxenreider.

I first heard the name Tsh Oxenreider when I had been writing over at my blog Steady Mom for a couple of months. Not having a single clue about how to grow my blog, I purchased audio transcripts from a blogging conference called Blissdom. Tsh was one of the speakers.

After listening, I spent some time exploring Tsh’s blog, Simple Mom. It seemed amazing to me, but I also thought it was similar to the blog I hoped to create. I remember telling my husband Steve, “Is there really a need for another blog about motherhood when she has one that is so huge?”

Steve–ever the wise, prophetic soul, said, “Don’t think of her as competition. Think of her as an ally.”

Now, because of the magic of the blogosphere, Tsh and I work together here at Simple Living Media. She is the real deal and I’m thankful to call her “boss.” (Well, I don’t really call her that, but you know what I mean!)

Organized Simplicity is beautiful, inspiring, and every page conveys Tsh’s heart for families to find the definition of simple living that works for them. (In other words, you don’t have to feel guilty if you have a washing machine!!)

I love it and think it belongs in your personal library. I know I’ll be referring to my copy again and again.

  1. Finding time to clean now that daughter number 3 has been welcomed into our family.

  2. My biggest challenges to simplifying are that we recently moved and had our fourth baby ! I just want a clean and uncluttered home, yet know that I must be gracious with myself in this season too.

  3. sorting paper. With everything that goes on here at business-central home, it is like paper piles up like trees are going out of style. What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks!

  4. Oooh, I have that book in my Amazon Wishlist! I would love to have a copy!

    Biggest organizational challenge? Probably the toys. Very hard, the toys, what with the playing and all.

  5. Phew! I snuck this entry in at the last second, didn’t I? I could really use this book’s helpful words of wisdom. I bought your book, Jamie, and gleaned much from it that I use in our daily life.

  6. My biggest challenge to organization is poor time management.
