Into the Wild

Read How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind: Dealing with Your House's Dirty Little Secrets Online Free - Bring your home out of the mess it’s in and learn how to keep it under control.

“The dirty little secret about most organizing advice is that it’s written by organized people,” says blogger, speaker, and decluttering expert Dana K. White. “But that’s not how my brain works. I’m lost on page three.” Dana blogs at A Slob Comes Clean, chronicling her successes and failures with her self-described “deslobification process.” In the beginning she used the name “Nony” (short for aNONYmous), because she was sharing her deep, dark, slob secret. Now she has truly come clean—with not only her real name but the strategies she has developed, tested, and proved in her own home. She has learned what it takes to bring a home out of Disaster Status, which habits make the biggest and most lasting impact, and how to keep clutter under control.

In How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind, Dana explains that cleaning your house is not a onetime project but a series of ongoing premade decisions. Her reality-based cleaning and organizing techniques debunk the biggest housekeeping fantasies and help readers learn what really works. Chapter titles include

My home gets out of control regularly. I never really understood why it would get so crazy when I clean so often. Most people don't get it, they don't seem to have a problem with their house getting crazy but Dana totally understands. What's more, she's figured out how to fix it! What really appe...

Well, that took forever! A six hour audiobook that took me three weeks to finish despite some skipping ahead. Uh oh! This book was written by a blogger and the same issues as most. It’s extremely repetitive, too drawn out, and has sections called “proof it’s not just me” that supply comments from...

When I first started this book, Dana White actually gives a warning to people like me, I would be in a category of 'not needing this book'. I debated just putting it down but then decided to go through it - maybe I could teach someone else (namely my mother) who would certainly fall into the cate...

This book is for you if you have ever - 1. thrown Marie Kondo's book against the wall in a fit of rage, 2. dumped your junk drawer into a box during a move, and continued to use that strategy for every move well into midlife, 3. suspected you are so right brained there is no housekeeping/organizing...

Humorous, and down right honest. I read the intro to this book and the author very firmly states that this book was NOT written for someone like me. However, I laughed my way through the first chapter and decided I didn't want to quit reading it. I really believe that this book would be super hel...

Here's the total (and somewhat embarrassing) truth...My home LOOKS mostly clean. But start opening drawers and closets or looking under beds and there is a different story to tell. If I can't find a home for something, I shove it in a drawer to "deal with it later." And sadly, "later" rarely come...

This book! I love it! Somehow Dana White makes a book about keeping up your house - something I hate and have endless struggles with- a joy to read! She is fun and funny and encouraging and understands the issues that people like me have when attempting this feat! From her introducing the word sl...

I was blessed to receive and Advanced Readers Copy of tgis book to read and review. It has been EYE-OPENING!! Dana White has captured the intermost thoughts of my brain and placed them on paper. I cannot express the relief that comes from hearing her words of affirmation about what 'slobvision' c...

I am currently on page 111 of this book and my mind is seriously blown. I am a slob, for real. We have lived in our current home for 8+ years and maybe for six months, my home was in good order. I am a recovering perfectionist, I am not good at having routines, you name it, I struggle with it. Da...
