A while back I wrote about my love of books. I also discussed my self-imposed restriction on my purchase of books. So far it has been a success. I have continued to utilize the local trade-a-book to get new books while I trade in the old. I have also expanding my library use 10 fold (you know you are a frequent visitor when you don't need to show your library card). With a bit of delayed gratification the library is not only free but efficient as well. Here is how it works. I go online reserve the books and movies that interest me and when they are in I receive an email notification. Usually it only takes a few days to get what you are looking for unless it is a new release & you are way down on the list. The NY Times Book Review online is a great resource for new books that you might want to reserve. Now I am able to read as much as I want without the expense, the waste, and my shelves are relatively clutter free.
"How can we discover our Sacred Space? Shouldn't our home be a place of peace and tranquility? How can we find balance amongst the chaos of kids, jobs, cooking, and cleaning without taking time away from our family. Sacred Spaces is a holistic approach to organizing through clearing clutter, creating an earth friendly environment, and discovering your Sacred Space. Through my business, I share with others ways I have found balance while raising 3 children, teaching yoga, keeping house, and starting a business. We will work together in your home to decide what is useful & or celebrates you and what is holding you back ie. clutter. I hope creating this blog will provide a forum so we all can find our Sacred Space and simplify our lives so we spend more time living!"
