One Bite at a Time
This thing has been about a year in the works, and I hope you’re as excited about it as I am. Today, I’m popping a bottle of wine and celebrating my hard work on this project for the past month. Oh, and it’s also my birthday today. This calls for nothing less than a little giveaway!
Sometimes, simplifying can feel… complicated. Isn’t that weird? We make “living simply” such an ordeal. We think of all those things we know to do, and we try to start them all at once. And then we get overwhelmed, and then we fail. And then we think we can’t do this “simple living” thing.
It’s like we just need something that tells us what to do, in manageable, bite-sized steps.
As of this fall, there are almost 900 posts on Simple Mom, and they all have something to do with making life simpler. For my own life, I wanted to consolidate and pick the very best ones, reformat them into a handbook, and then use this collection as a tool for me to stay focused. To remind myself of the essentials.
So I made one. A handbook, that is. And then I added about 50 percent more new content, and today, I’m sharing it with you.
One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler is an e-book, a handbook, and a road map for your journey to live simpler. I think you’ll like it.
52 projects for living simpler, for you to tackle at your own pace. There’s no timeline, and you can start right in the middle, wherever your heart desires.
For $5, you can instantly download this e-book, and then print it (there’s lots of room for you to take notes), or simply read it on your computer monitor. You can also upload it to your e-reader (I’ll release Kindle and Nook versions sometime in the future).
Head here to check out the full list of 52 projects, and to download Project 5: Start Menu Planning for free.
Right now, I can’t really justify a price higher than $5, because technically, you could find half the info from this e-book on the blog, for free. I want to fully disclose this up front, so that you don’t think I’m trying to shyster you.
But with this e-book, a lot of hard work has been done for you: it’s edited, updated, reformatted into a handbook, and wrapped around lots of new content. Several of these project ideas have never been mentioned before on Simple Mom. It’s 169 pages, chock full of do-able projects.
(Oh, and there’s an affiliate program, too, so that you can sell this e-book on your own site or via e-mail and earn 30% of all sales. Head here to sign up.)
If you buy One Bite at a Time anytime on my birthday—August 26—you’ll be automatically entered to win a copy of my book, Organized Simplicity! I’ll randomly draw 10 names from the list of buyers from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.
Thank you for being Simple Mom readers. Each of you have made the past three-plus years some of the best in my life. I’m honored to share this space online with you! I’ll think of you today as I sleep in, leisurely read on the couch, and play with my family—my favorite way to celebrate a birthday.
Update: Marie at Make and Takes is giving away three copies of One Bite, along with a few other books!
I’d love to know—which of the 52 projects excite you the most?
