536: How to get Rid of 250 Things in One Day

Are you up for the challenge of decluttering 250 things in one day? Kathi and Tonya Kubo, the original decluttering queen and the fearless leader of Clutter Free, are laying the foundation for decluttering those 250 items in one day by answering some of the hows and whys of this project. So, whether you’re thinking: 250 things in one day is not doable, you’re plotting a way you could do this challenge every day for a month until your house is just the way you want it, or somewhere in between, this conversation is for you. Kathi and Tonya will give you guidelines and creative ideas for accomplishing it by:

  • Knowing when a great time for a 250-item declutter day is
  • Knowing how and why to plan for where the clutter will go
  • Getting a jump start on the November challenge

Heart Happy: Staying Centered in God’s Love Through Chaotic Circumstances

Heart Happy: Staying Centered in God’s Love Through Chaotic Circumstances takes readers on a journey to discover where their true strength, peace, and joy come from—the Lord—no matter what life offers up. Tricia Goyer—author, podcast host, volunteer, homeschooling mom of ten children, and caregiver to her grandma—understands what it’s like to be pulled in different directions with the longing and intention to do all things well. In the midst of chaotic circumstances (which all of us face), she’s found uncomplicated but effective practices for nourishing the soul—because everything stems from the heart.

The Book Project: A Challenge for Myself in 2017

The Book Project: A Challenge for Myself in 2017

At the beginning of 2017, I began what I like to call The Book Project. I challenged myself to reading a book a week for the entire year. You see, I’d grown pretty lazy when it came to reading. (Plopping down at the end of a long day to watch a Friend’s episode was so much easier…)

But I’m loving this challenge so much, and I thought that some of you would be interested in hearing some of the books I’ve been reading. Plus, I’d love your suggestions of additional books I should put on my list.

The Book Project

My list of books will be a jumble. There will be some writing and business books, and I’m leaning heavily on memoir at the moment. Some of the books I’m reading haven’t been released yet, and I’ve read those in order to offer endorsements for them. I’ll tell you more about those as the release dates get closer.

The ones in bold are the ones I’ve completed reading. Those not in bold I’m in the process of reading.

Just because the book is on the list, doesn’t mean that I recommend it. (I would love to get back the way too many hours I spend on The Cookbook Collector. Others loved it. Me? Not so much.) Rather, this is a list of what I’m reading and the challenge I am taking on.

Hillbilly Elegy is just stunning. An Invisible Thread was tremendous and touching, and Kitchen Confidential was a riot.

But the book I’m recommending right now is Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah. This is possibly the best memoir I’ve read in my life. Trevor is the late-night host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. Born in South Africa to a white dad and a black mom during the time of Apartheid, Trevor spends his formative years learning how to lie about who he was and who his parents were in order to stay on the right side of the law. An amazingly funny, touching and personal book. Loved it.

My current list of books

So here is where I’m at so far for my 2017 book challenge.

  1. Making Love Last: Divorce-Proofing Your Young Marriage Laura Taggart (Releasing July 4th, 2017)
  2. Hillbilly Elegy By J.D. Vance
  3. Doing Busy Better Glynnis Whitwer (Releasing July 4th, 2017)
  4. EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the Trenches Dave Ramsey
  5. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
  6. An Invisible Thread Laura Schroff and Alex Trusniowski
  7. Kitchen Confidential By Anthony Bourdain
  8. How to Listen So People Will Talk Becky Harling (Releasing August 1, 2017)
  9. The Cookbook Collector Allegra Goodman
  10. Loving My Actual Christmas Alex Kuykendal (Releases Sept 5th, 2017)
  11. The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
  12. Disrupted Dan Lyons
  13. Drinking: A Love Story Caroline Knapp

I’ll update you as I add more titles to the list on my year challenge, The Book Project.

So please, tell me what other books I should add to the list. Great memoirs, stunning fiction, helpful non-fiction? I want it all.3
