Description

International best-selling author Elaine St. James offers up a new collection of simple tips to help you minimize life's chaos. Her commonsense solutions will have you breathing a deep sigh of relief as you ask yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?"A compilation of the best ideas from St. James's previous five books, plus important new material, 365 Simple Reminders is a wonderful, witty guide that will lead you back to a less-complicated way of life. St. James's advice includes: - Sell the damn boat.- Be selective about giving out your E-mail address.- Make water your drink of choice.- Never remodel.- If you must remodel, don't live in your home while it's being remodeled.- Get rid of all but one or two of your credit cards.- Always sit down to eat.- Beware of exercise equipment, fire your personal trainer, and go take a walk.- If you can't pay for it in full by the end of the month, don't buy it.- Slow down to the posted speed limit.- Replace your lawn with low-maintenance, drought-tolerant ground cover.- If it's not working, stop doing it.- Resign from any organization whose meetings you dread.- Show your kids how to manage their own space and stuff.- Never allow a ringing phone to interrupt a meal with your family. Her thoughts are a straightforward and powerful recipe for getting rid of the unnecessary, life-cluttering tasks we find ourselves doing without pausing to ask why.show more
