I recently got my hands on a book called Pretty Neat by Alicia Rockmore & Sarah Welch. Organization & cleanliness has never been my strong point, so when my book came in the mail, I was really excited to delve right in. The goal of this book is to help readers let go of perfection and get organized in a way that works for them. Pretty Neat includes stories, tips, ideas and more from real-life people.
Honestly, I loved this book. It was easy to read - I got through it in about an hour total. It has some great tips and it really spoke to me. I grew up learning that everything needed to be pristine in order to be clean. This book tells you that that is NOT the case. It has some great confessionals from other moms, too. It even has a bit on organization and weight loss. How cool is that? I never considered 2 to be related before, but I definitely do now and I'm definitely going to be applying some of the tips to my routine.
All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and I got a few really good ideas from it. I highly recommend checking it out, if you get a chance.
BUY IT! You can buy a paperback copy of Pretty Neat from Amazon for $10.17 or a kindle version for $9.58. AWESOME!
