Get your life and your motherhood back!!
Reviewed in the United States on September 7, 2021
I have been a follower of Allie Casazza's for years. When I came across her blog, as a new mom, I was mesmerized by the idea of “Purposeful Motherhood”. Yes, she is a minimalist, but it is with purpose. The idea that everything in your home has to serve a purpose, which ultimately could be different from person to person, was mind blowing.
THEN she started something called Declutter Like a Mother. Just from the name alone, I knew I had to try it out. And it was life changing! Never have I felt more empowered or motivated to take my life back! I have done the challenge every year since! When Allie announced she was going to write a book titled Declutter Like a Mother, even though I had completed the challenge online a few times, I knew that I just had to get my hands on this book! Reading the words on the pages was so life giving. Allie breaks down the areas in your home that tend to cause mom's the most stress – from kids clothe and artwork to dishes and bathroom cabinets – and gives you some guidelines on how to make those areas work for you and GET RID OF WHAT ISN’T SERVING A PURPOSE! She explains how our stuff and cleaning it up is taking up our time, time that we could be spending with our kids or families. As moms, we aren't required to live a life that is bogged down with constant chaos and cleaning, even if the world tends to make that seem like the norm and like its ok. Following Allie's simple steps as outlined in Declutter Like a Mother, she guides you through these top areas, while also dealing with some of the emotional and mental obstacles that come up! She even touches on why kids cling to certain things. Her method makes so much sense. A mother is one of the strongest forces ever, and when you get a mother motivated, you better watch out. Allie motivates and encourages while also giving some tough love where needed. Her book will absolutely get you headed in the right direction to take back your life and your motherhood and not be owned by your stuff!
As a member of the launch team, I received and advanced copy of the book in exchange for my unbiased opinion.
