Are you up for a challenge? How about a challenge that will change the way you view spending for the rest of your life! Then join me…
For the past couple of Septembers I have challenged myself to a No Spend September. Also known as a Frugal Fast or a Spending Freeze. Why September? No Clue. I actually learned about the concept years ago. I don’t entirely remember what the source was, but No Spend September has a nice ring to it.

Just like Spring I believe that Fall is a time for new beginnings. In the Fall leaves change colors and fall from the trees, birds and butterflies migrate South for the upcoming Winter months and I personally am in the mood to purge and organize. The Fall inspires me to review my belongings, have fun garage sales and give that eBay account a boost in sales. That is why I am so very happy to share with all of you the latest book that has ignited that spark. It is called “Organizing for Your Lifestyle: Adaptable Inspirations from Socks to Suitcases” by Jane Stoller.
Jane’s style of writing is so inviting. The entire book can be read in just an afternoon, not because it is lacking content but because you can’t wait to see what bright idea she throws at you next. The book begins with Jane’s mantra, “organizing is a lifestyle, but it needs to be your lifestyle”. This is so true, so many times other organization books try to alter your mindset completely, which does not work for everyone. Jane’s alternative to a one size fits all approach is to make sure that her reader is comfortable with the changes they are making so that they will continue to live an organized life long after reading and implementing the techniques in her book.

Gosh time sure did flying by, Spring ended 8 whole days ago. It is no longer my favorite cleaning time of the year. It is now Summer where the pressure to purge is no longer a thought and instead it’s all about Summer fun and relaxation. This Spring I had so many plans on how I was going to clean and organize our home. This Spring I also found out I was expecting another baby. The shift from cleaning to dr’s appointments and baby planning was an exciting one. However it also made me lose a little bit of cleaning focus.
In today’s post I will review what went well during my Spring Cleaning journey; what went not as planned; and what 3 products I found that I just couldn’t live without. But before I get into the nitty gritty I want to revisit some of the Spring Cleaning posts that I published during this magical time of year in case you missed them. My favorite post was definitely the last one listed. My entire cleaning method changed and it was for the better!
