Organized Simplicity

This is a great book by Tsh Oxenreider (crazy name, huh?) about clearing out all the things and activities that keep you from living your best life. She explains the philosophy of simple living in a way that makes you want to throw away all your belongings. I consider this a good thing.

Coming from a family that hoards books and can't pass a thrift store without pulling into the parking lot, I have a bit more stuff than is strictly necessary. But this book has inspired me to clear out a few things. The bonus of this book is the appendix of recipes in the back. Oxenreider provides a list of natural cleaning products you can make at home, most of them including fewer than 4 ingredients.
