My Book Cover!! And You Can Pre-Order How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind

As I head into my blog-free summer (ideas of how you can get your deslobification inspiration needs met are at the end of this post), it’s time to reveal something exciting!!



That’s my book cover, y’all!!! I love it so so so much. My main request was that the cover show that this book will be funny. I think my publisher nailed it.

And . . . I’m excited to let you know that How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind will be released into the world on November 8th, 2016! It’s available for pre-order now at the following sites:


Pre-Orders Available at:



A few reasons to pre-order:

  1. So you’ll be sure to get it right away! I’ve looked around, and the general info seems to be that pre-ordering gives you a pretty good chance of receiving the book ON release day. Not a guaranteed chance, but a good chance.
  2. So others will be more likely to find out about it! I’m speaking to those of us who once thought there was absolutely zero hope for our homes. Then we stumbled upon our people, and learned we weren’t alone in these struggles. I stumbled on my people by starting this blog/deslobification journey, and so many of you have told me you found your people when you learned about this community of kindred spirits. Pre-orders help bookstores determine how many books they need to put in their stores, and they also help with rankings that will give the book more exposure. More exposure = more people finding hope!
  3. In case you’re not a fan of politics, you’ll know you have something to look forward to on November 8th, which just happens to also be election day.

How to Keep Getting Deslobification Inspiration Over the Summer

It’s officially summer around here. If you’ve been around a while, you know I take summer off from blogging/podcasting and such to focus on my family. I love this job (that I created out of thin air), but I love my family more.

While I’m on summer break, you can still keep up with things. I’m sending out a weekly newsletter sharing what I’m getting done (or struggling with) and links to some of the most helpful past content from the archives. Sign up here, and you’ll also get my best decluttering solutions delivered to your inbox over the next few days.

Or you can try out podcasts. Just click on one that sounds interesting to you and then look for the grayish bar with a play arrow on it. Click that play arrow and you’ll hear my voice coming out of your computer! I’m told again and again that this audio format is perfect because it lets people actually clean while they’re being inspired to clean!

I also have some videos ready to be uploaded soon, so subscribe over on YouTube!

Or if you’ve always wanted to read from the beginning, go here to find out how (and why) I recommend doing this. You can read it for free here on the site, or you can purchase the first three years of the blog in e-book form here.

    Congratulations! Is it funny to you that you are transforming houses all the way down here in Australia? My friends and I have started Swap Night, where we declutter the stuff we can barely part with (like spare coffee machines) and bring them to someone’s house, (or email each other a list of things we can’t carry) then from the treasures spread before us we take away things that are USEFUL to us. I received a big trampoline and gave away a spare washing line plus an old iPhone. My friend, a single mom, received a washing machine and a printer. She was planning to spend her next paycheck on a printer.

    Love love love the cover!!! I preordered the book and can’t wait to read it. I have all your ebooks.

    I’ve preordered mine. How could I miss it?! Congratulations……now if I could only get it signed ~ it would be perfect. Ever thought about being a speaker at Hearts at Home?

    I am super excited about your book. I just discovered your podcast about a month ago and it has been a GAME CHANGER in our home. My husband says he owes you huge for the transformation. I find myself agreeing with you out loud when I listen because you and I are operating on the same wavelength sister! It’s amazing to hear someone put into words what is going on inside of me that I’ve never been able to identify. So, thank you thank you thank you! I will have a copy of your book and I’ll be promoting it on my blog and social media without a doubt. #slobsunite #spreadtheword
    On that note, will you have an affiliate program for the new book as you’ve done for past eBooks? I’m promoting it either way…

      Thank you, Ashley!! I won’t have a private affiliate program like I do for the digital books, but I know all or most of the places where it’s available for online orders have affiliate programs, so definitely use those!!

        Thanks Dana! I appreciate your quick reply. I’ll definitely use my Amazon link 🙂 can’t wait to get my hands on it!! Thank you so much for all you do! You’re making a huge difference.

  14. 22

    The cover is AMAZING!!! I can’t wait to read it!

  15. 23

    An audiobook would be awesome so we can clean and listen/read at the same time! I have triplets and I only wish I could LISTEN to the book since reading has become a distant memory.

    I am so excited for you! Cute cover! Your story of just being born messy and the idea of your creative mind not coming by organization naturally really resonates with my experience. Many other ‘how to organize’ blogs are by organized folks for organized folks! That’s not us, is it? Thank you for all the help and inspiration you offer people like us. Wishing you the best for a tremendous book launch!

    Hi Nony… Just wanting to make sure everything was OK with you & your family… even with your light summers, you usually post a little bit!

      Thanks for checking, Andree! I just posted today!! I did send out newsletters over the summer, but stayed so busy with family and book things that nothing went up on the site!

    So glad to have you back. Your older podcasts kept me going. Looking forward to fresh ones?. Please what is the price of your new book. And how to pre order it?
