There are about one hundred thousand things I would rather be doing than cleaning. In fact, I wrote Easy Peasy Chores, not because I've got my house all pulled together and perfect, but because I needed a system to help me stay on top of day-to-day routines and conquer the law of the universe that says “children can mess a house up faster than an adult can clean it.” If you feel that way, just know you're not alone! Look to your left… that's me sitting next to you waving!
Apparently it's not just you and I in the trenches. I'd like to introduce you to a few of my blogging friends who have written some of my favorite ebooks about housekeeping! These are my sweet sisters in Christ who are here in the trenches with you and I! They are Mamas with a husband and children and dirt and clutter and…. You get the idea! And they've all written the books that you see here… books that are included in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle and are only 32 cents each if you purchase the bundle library!
Getting It Together – by Kayse Pratt
First meet Kayse! In her book Getting It Together, Kayse walks you through the process of creating a home management binder. Don't have a home management binder yet? This is the place to start! I LOVE my home management binder! I keep mine on a cookbook stand in my kitchen and it's so handy to have everything you'll need in one place! In Getting It Together she gives you a full, step-by-step tutorial on how to make the binder, gives tips for making it extra pretty (because we all know we won't use it if it's not pretty!), teaches you how to use your Home management book and even includes 30 different printables to get you going!
Hand Made Walls – by Jamin & Ashley Mills
Ok, I gotta tell ya… This book is FULL of photographs of home decorating that make me suspect Jamin & Ashley Mills are related to Laura Ashley… or maybe Martha Stewart. The photographs are absolutely gorgeous. Now, my natural artistic talent prompted my highschool art teacher to tell me that she's seen better art created by kindergarten students (true story!) so I wouldn't ever think of attempt projects like this on my own… but the Mills gave fantastic directions and make the projects so do-able!
Pulling Yourself Together – by Becky from CleanMama.net
Pulling Yourself Together has lots of practical ideas for creating a cleaning routine that will get include all the areas of your home (even the ones you might forget about)! And to keep track of everything that needs to be done and how often we need to do it, Becky has included 6 super-cute printables at the end of the book.
Clean Enough: Simple Solutions for the Overwhelmed Homemaker – by Jenni Mullinix
Jenni's book is a beautiful balance of practical cleaning tips and dealing with the heart issues and spiritual aspects of being a homemaker. This book will teach you about everything from establishing a cleaning routine, to cleaning efficiently, to getting your children to help and keeping your house clean (because we've all said, “We're going to clean this house and this time it's going to stay that way!!!” My favorite chapter in this book is the one at the end called “Biblical Encouragement for the Overwhelmed Homemaker.”
Organizing Life as Mom – by Jessica Fisher
This book includes inspirational chapters interspersed with all kinds of printables to help you think through your goals as a homemaker and plan accordingly. (After all, as the old saying goes, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail!) The planning pages are printable… But you can also type directly into the pdf if you're going paperless (or, um… can't always read your own handwriting like me!)
Simple Living – by Lorilee Lippincott
I haven't actually read this book yet, but I am so excited to start it! Simple Living is a complete crash course in decluttering your home and simplifying your life. It includes 30 lessons to help you get on top of things. I'm pretty sure Lorilee understands people like me because there are not one, but TWO chapters on dead plants. Not that I have a problem with dead plants… if you come visit us you'll notice that all our plants are outside in Papa the Farmer's gardens… There's not a single houseplant! (Because I killed them all. Oops.)
One Bite At A Time – by Tsh Oxenreider
In One Bite At A Time, Tsh answers the question, “Why is it so hard to make life simple?” Since we opened The Good Old Days Farm, Papa the Farmer and I have read a lot of self-help books! (At least 100!) We probably could have read just this one book and saved ourselves a lot of time! There are 52 different baby-step projects and a handy chart to help you know which area of your life that particular project will help you to organize. Some of the projects are challenges that are obvious and others not-so-much. If you're looking to get organized, I think you will enjoy this book!
10 Steps to Organized Paper – by Lisa Woodruff
In this book Lisa will help you to tame – no! Capture and kill – the paper clutter monster! She walks you through 10 steps to figuring out what we need to keep (and how long), what we can shred, and what to do with all the paper that falls between those two extremes.
31 Days To Clean – by Sarah Mae
31 Days to Clean is the book that coined the term “Motivotional”! It is half daily-devotional and half Motivational! There are 31 daily readings that offer a snippet of encouragement, then two daily challenges: The “Martha” challenge is something practical (like go clean the junk drawer). The “Mary” challenge is spiritual and encourages us to get our hearts right with God in this area of housekeeping.
Not a DIY Diva – by Melissa Michaels
If you have ever looked at something on Pinterest and thought to youself, “That is so gorgeous! I could totally do that!” and then tried it and it completely flopped… This is the book for me (I mean, YOU! **ahem**) Melissa has packed so many ideas into this book of how to have a Pinterest-looking home by using simple decorating techniques that don't require interior designer skills!
Easy Peasy Chores
This one is by yours truly! It's my printable card system that helps get the whole family involved in chore time… and loving it! Not only are the printable cards included, but also games and activities to keep your children motivated to clean long after the “newness” of the system wears off!
28 Days To Hope For Your Home by Dana White
I bought 28 Days to Home For Your Home a few months ago… and was not disappointed! Let's just say that as I was reading it in bed Papa the Farmer asked me, “What on earth are you laughing about?” This book makes cleaning fun! I just love Dana's sense of humor! This book is subtitled “(Not for the Mildly Disorganized).” This book is really a basic starting place for people who are overwhelmed. Or maybe it's a re-starting place for people who are in a season of being overwhelmed. Either way, you will find grace in these pages as Dana (aka “Nony the Slob” from ASlobComesClean.com) walks you through the process of establishing 4 basic habits as a foundation for getting control of your home again.
