This book was helpful because it teaches how to deal with dishes, something I struggle with. It helped more than some other cleaning books I have read.
I’ve listened to Dana for about 2 years now. You could listen to every episode and get a lot out of it like I did. But only after reading her book am I actually implementing her methods daily and consistently. I’ve read a few minimalism books and watched documentaries. Her method is my favorite and so practical. When I just want to go to bed without finishing the dishes I hear her voice in my head ! When I really don’t want to sweep the floors and they aren’t that bad I remember that this is a pretty made decision she she is doing it too no matter how tired she is. 10/10 recommend reading this !! ❤️ I’m a full time working mama about to have baby #2 and go back to staying home with the babes. I’m so glad I read this now and am able to get in a good routine before I get even more tired or have more excuses of why now isn’t a good time. Thank you Dana !
Thank you Dana!
In addition to the immediately actionable advice, it's comforting to know I'm not alone. Like Dana, I have struggled to understand why I excel at other "projects" in my life and work but not my own home. I have struggled thinking "if only I had a bigger place" and said to myself over and over "when I get done with [insert stage of life], I will become a tidy person." Dana is the friend who gets it and just shares what might work for people like us. I recommend reading the sample or listening to one of her podcasts before purchase to get an idea of who her target is. It's definitely me and I am so happy to have found her.
