Simple Organizing Book Launch: Clutter Confessions Tour

Simple Organizing Book Launch: Clutter Confessions Tour

Greetings, friends! It’s Simple Organizing Book Launch week! WOO HOO! Tomorrow is the official release day. This week I’ve asked eight lovely bloggers to invite us over (virtually) to their home so they can reveal their SECRET SHAME! Hahah!

You know how us bloggers tend to only show the picture perfect pretty angles of every room?

Well, just for fun and to inspire us all to get going on our spring decluttering and organizing projects, we’re doing something a little different. We’re kicking off the Clutter Confessions Tour for Simple Organizing!

That’s right, each of the eight bloggers on the tour will be inviting us to take a look at what we normally don’t get to see. I’ve got my own clutter confession for you, too.

Plus at each stop, you’ll have the opportunity to enter a book giveaway! Check out the tour schedule below.

    I’m a lurker, but read every post. Your “Inspired By” posts have been so helpful for dreaming and planning as my husband and I restore our 1930s craftsman bungalow in Chattanooga, TN. We’re planning an addition now (5 years in the savings, now starting to become a reality!), and your tips and style have been crucial. Can’t wait to see what’s in this new book!

I have loved being a part of the #SimpleOrganizing launch group! So inspiring and motivating! THANK YOU, Melissa, for yet another fabulous book! Beautiful and full of great ideas!

  23. Lisa Hiatt says

    As a former homeschool mom I have an obsession with books. I admit I have too many, but have a hard time letting go. Reading has always been important to me but having stacks of books everywhere is not always pleasing to the eye. I look forward to reading your book, learning and passing it on to a friend.

  24. I have a couple of your other books and really enjoy them. I have been so encouraged by them and inspired to make my home more beautiful. I really identify with the things you have shared about yourself, especially the stage with small people. I am still in the little years of kiddos. :)

  25. Julia Anderson says

  33. Ashley B says

  56. Hey Melissa! I have a funny story to tell you. I had to go pick up some eye drops at Publix (a nice grocery store that has a pharmacy here in Ga). Whenever I go in there , I love to browse their magazines! I picked up a copy Spring Cottage ( not sure that’s the correct title) and flipped thru it. My eye caught a pic of a dog as the page flipped. I thought ‘ WAIT—that looks like JACK!’ AND—sure enough— IT WAS JACK!
    Loved it! I wondered how does it feel to be recognized by your dog? HaHa! By the way, they are adorable and your house is so lovely! I have your 2 first books and would love having the last 2 also! THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOURSELF WITH US ALL!

  57. I could definitely use some organizing inspiration and guidance!

  58. I definitely struggle with my closet!

  59. I discovered you in our Christian bookstore last fall. Am loving *Love the Home You Have*. Your gentle encouragement is helping me enjoy our little home, even as we prepare for a move. Can’t wait to read more of your books!

  60. I have enjoyed your other books and look forward to reading this one.

  61. Jenny Graber says

    My desk/office/laundry room is the area that seems to be constantly chaotic! I need a better system for storing things in mid-process since my desk is small. Congratulations on your new book!

  62. Looking forward to reading this book! Thank you.

  63. You inspire me to “have a place for everything and everything in its place”. Thanks!
