Praise for Fresh Start:
"Fresh Start is a thorough and practical guide to improve your home and life. It will inspire your thinking, challenge your habits, and encourage you with just the right amount of you-can-do-it contained in each day's challenge." ~Joshua Becker, Becoming Minimalist and author of Simplify and Living with Less
"I've read plenty of books and articles on organizing... but never one from a "green" perspective. Sandy's book takes you on a simple, streamlining mission through every room and area of the house, as well as your daily routine. You won't have to go out and buy anything new (like plastic storage bins or hangers) to follow her advice." ~Amity Hook-Sopko, Executive Editor and Publisher, Green Child Magazine
"Our lives are too complicated. We are buried with clutter and tasks and stress — and we don't know the way out of our own mess. Fortunately, Sandy has written a guide just for that. Read this, then live it. It will change the way you live." ~Jeff Goins, author of Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams into Your Comfortable Life
