The creator of the popular cleaning website Clean Mama and author of Clean Mama's Guide to a Healthy Home shows you how to establish systems and rituals to transform your home into a clean, organized, and comfortable space for you and your family. We all want our homes to be cozy and comfortable havens where we can leave the challenges of the outside world behind. But too often the mail piles up, the laundry doesn't get folded, or the kids forget to put their toys away, creating mess and adding to our anxieties. Becky Rapinchuk has taught people how to simplify their cleaning routine for years, with a simple 10-minute daily system that works. Now she reveals a game-changing method of freeing up mental and physical space to help us find joy and make our home-keeping routine effortless. By pairing up systems--how we get things done so that they become automatic--with rituals--tasks that bring calm and happiness--we can feel more at peace in our homes. Like Marie Kondo meets The Home Edit, Becky walks us through each room sharing the systems and rituals that she uses. Featuring two-color illustrations, decision trees, checklists, and space to reflect and record what's working and what you'd like to improve, Clean Mama's Guide to a Peaceful Home makes home-keeping a breeze and allows us to slow down and focus on the things that really matter in our lives.
