Tip #13 – 28 Days of Decluttering

Tip #13 – What to do with all the books. 

Ten points to the person who can name that blue book on the right?

This is the stack of books on my bed-side table.

I think I’ve let this get away from me in hopes that if I see the books I will actually read them.

And get this – the bottom shelf of this shelving unit in my office are all books I still need to read.

I have a system – I’m just not using it.  The top two shelves are books I’ve read and want to keep. The bottom shelf is for books to read at some point.

Here’s a challenge for myself – – maybe I’ll go move my books from my bed side to the unread shelf and declutter my bed-side table.

How about you – what do you do with your book collection(s)?  Here is an article I found with some really helpful tips!  ‘Not My Precious Books!’ — Pain-Free Ways to Declutter Your Library






100 to start – will you help me

Hi Everyone!

My friend Mindy loves alliteration.  Anytime we work on a project together she needs to name it and it always needs to have some sort of “flow”.

She was the inspiration to my themed weekday blogs – –  you know “Not-me Monday“, “Tips on Tuesdays” and so on…..

So I thought we’d go with a little alliteration for a challenge I’d like to propose for May.  But it didn’t quite work out – because all I could come up with was  “A Million in May“.

I’m asking you help in getting my eBook, Making Time for Dinner, launched.  I’d love to get some traction in the sales, but I can’t do it alone.

I’d love to say – help me sell a Million copies in May – – but that might be getting a little greedy.  So instead we’ll forget the alliteration for this challenge and go for

100 in May!

So – will you help me sell 100 copies of my eBook this month.  This is a really doable goal.  It is less than four a day.  We can do it – right?

Here are a few ways to help:

  • Buy a copy for yourself.
  • Buy a copy for your friend.
  • Buy a copy off of Amazon.com and post a review.
  • Buy a PDF version and send me your review to share on this blog.
  • Share this challenge with your friends and ask them buy a copy.
  • Ask your firends to ask their friends to buy a copy.

You can buy either a PDF version here or  you can follow this link to buy it for your Kindle.

Here’s what one reader said about the eBook:

As a new mom, I found this incredibly helpful.  Making Time for Dinner is chock full of good, practical ideas that I look forward to implementing.  From shopping and pre-planning to tidying up afterward, this will help your family make – and keep – great habits.”   ~Elsa

Thanks for the help and for the support!
