In a world that seemingly never has enough time, we are often unable to get everything done that we need to accomplish in a given time frame. Though we can take out our frustrations on the fact that there is just not enough time in our day, no matter what we want, we can’t simply create more time. Therefore, we have to make the most of the time we do have and try to utilize our available time in the most efficient way possible. When it comes to getting tasks done in the home, efficiency can be the key to determining how much free time we ultimately earn for ourselves. As we become more efficient, we can expect an improvement in the amount of time available for us to use as we please. This book highlights those tactics that I have found beneficial at helping me get my required tasks done at home in the most efficient way possible. More importantly, this book will show you how to structure your tasks based upon the required activity level (i.e. active vs. passive tasks), in turn being able to schedule your time-on-task in a way that results in significant time savings due to your improved efficiency at task completion.

<br /><h2>Do you wish for a <b>cleaner and cozier </b> home? Feel overwhelmed by your possessions? </h2> <br />If so, it's time to simplify your life!<br /><br />We live in a culture where <u>more is worshipped and encouraged </u>: more money, more stuff, more likes, be more skinny, wear better clothes, achieve more in your career… The list could go on. In the meantime, we get disconnected from our true selves and our deepest desires. We can’t change the world but at least we can change the place we spend the most time in – our home. <i>All You Need Is Less</i> is a heartfelt guide to <b>downsize your house and keep it practical and cozy. </b><br /> <br />After returning home from a six-year world journey, Michelle Moore decided to downsize, simplify, and make her house more homely. In the process she realized the less she had, the more she could value the things that truly matter in life: friendship, family, self-care, and coziness. <br /><br /><i>All You Need Is Less </i> is based on a practical approach to minimalism but Miss Moore takes the idea further. It is not enough to simply declutter. It won’t make you feel more like at home by itself. In <i>All You Need Is Less</i> the downsizing process parallel runs with ideas on how to make your living space homely. <br /><br /><h2>The first half of the book introduces <u>the most trending contemporary concepts of cleaning and organizing. </u></h2><br />•How can you benefit the most from adopting a minimalism worldview?<br />•<b>The art of creating a minimal and cozy home. </b><br />•The secrets of Swedish Death Cleaning.<br />•<b>Practical tips how to make each month of the year cozy and meaningful. </b><br />•10 power tools to enhance the comfort of your home instantly.<br /><br /><h2>The second half of the book discusses the<u> hands-on practices to downsize and upgrade the comfort of your home. </u></h2><br />•The best selection methods to get rid of mess – quickly and effectively.<br />•<b>Folding and organizing methods from one of the greatest decluttering minds in the world. </b><br />•Special tips to downsize and organize those parts of your home you wouldn’t even think of.<br />•<b>A step-by-step walkthrough on how to keep the order in your home once it’s clean. </b><br />•20+ organizing tips to find a good spot for everything.<br /><br /><h2>Improve your focus, release stress, and enhance your creativity in an organized environment. </h2><br />Get ready to sweep away the unnecessary, organize your belongings, and create a safe haven for yourself free from judgment, overwhelming expectations, and clutter. By doing so you’ll feel <b>more safe, happy, and protected in your home.</b> Becoming clutter-free <u>improves your daily mood, helps you break painful bonds with the past – even helps you sleep better. </u><br /><br /><b>What’s your excuse for not living a simpler, more connected, and happier life? </b><br /><br /><h1>Give your home a fresh start! Just open this book, and you'll be on your way to a more meaningful, simpler, and untroubled life. </h1><br />
