Quick Giveaway: Simple Steps: 10 Weeks to Getting Control of Your Life Book – 5 Winners!

April 24, 2012

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Winners will be announced soon!

If there’s one thing I am in dire need of it’s to get into a better cleaning routine. I was doing very well when I was sticking to the Morning and Nighttime Routines I had set-up for myself. Over Spring Break, I remembered an idea from Simple Steps: 10 Weeks to Getting Control of Your Life Book of cleaning out one drawer/closet/cabinet a week and instead I cleaned out one a day. I focused mostly on my kitchen cabinets and a few of our closets. It was so nice to see a little bit of accomplishment at the the end of each day. I’ve been doing everything to make sure that they stay clean and organized, too!

I’ve mentioned this book a few times in the past and it is definitely on the list of my favorites when it comes to “self-help” books. Several years ago, a few of my family members and co-workers got together and did the 10 week program. It was amazing how much it changed my daily routines for the better. Each week, you are given four new steps and the idea is to continue the ones you’ve done the weeks before, as well. They not only focus on cleaning but on health, exercise and setting goals for yourself. Some of the steps are very simple and are probably already a part of your daily routines. What I loved the most is that they give you great information for each step and ideas for how to go about incorporating them into your life.

I decided to dust off my book and start up their “program” again here real soon. I always love to give my readers a chance to go along with the little challenges I give myself so I’ve decided to do a quick 24-hour giveaway on this one. Five lucky readers will win this so make sure you sign-up so you can try be one of them!

I always start with the three basics: empty the trash cans, load / unload the dishwasher and start / fold a load of clothes.

Becky I’m with you. 3 yrs later, 7 surgeries and 2 more to go!!! Talk about life uncontrolled. I DO really need this book.

63 Mandy B April 25, 2012 at 8:40 am

Anytime I walk from room to room, I scan for anything that needs put away. I’m constantly chasing my kids, so I get a lot of stuff put away this way.

64 Heather H April 25, 2012 at 9:22 am

Try to keep a positive mind, thats what I have been doing and it really helps.

Never go up or down the stairs empty handed. Baskets at top and/or bottom help too. Also, especially when my kids were little, when cleaning a room I would put anything that belonged in a different room in a laundry basket, so I would stay in that room and not get sidetracked. I think having kids makes you ADD..lol

68 Tracy A April 25, 2012 at 10:36 am

I know it’s basic, but I like to create a To Do List and be able to check off my completed items in order to feel I’ve accomplished something for that day. Of course, it helps to break down the “cleaning” into specific tasks so more to check off!

I like to exercise in the morning before everyone else gets up – it keeps me sane!

74 Lorin April 25, 2012 at 10:48 am

My cleaning tip: Store all toys in adult-like boxes. It keeps your home from looking like a kid-zone which will motivate you to keep things tidy. The messier it looks – the quicker you are to give up on maintanence!

I try to keep up on a few items each day so that I don’t get too overwhelmed (i.e. check/ take out trash each day, go through the daily mail when it comes in, put the kids’ toys away at the end of each day, etc.)

83 Michelle P April 25, 2012 at 11:15 am

I have to make lists for myself. I love crossing things off the list when they are done. For that simple little reason, I do much better with getting things accomplished (big or small) when I make lists.

Sounds like an interesting book.

89 Barbara April 25, 2012 at 11:54 am

I eat my foods as unprocessed as possible (I’ve lost over 100 pounds!), I’m struggling with goal setting, but starting to write them down along with the steps necessary to achieve them so that I can start scheduling doing those things. My favorite cleaning tip is for the blender. I make fruit smoothies every morning then I put about 1/3 full of hot water with some dish soap and turn it on for a minute. Then all I have to do is rinse and let it dry!

I get the whole family involved by setting a timer for 10 minutes and clean like maniacs until time runs out…we call it a “white tornado”
