What others are saying...

I never considered myself a good housekeeper


I owe you a debt of gratitude for the peace, contentment, and confidence you have brought to my domestic life. Like you, I never considered myself a good housekeeper...until I simplified. Now I do! And I love my old house! I go into other people's houses and get claustrophobic. The solution is so countercultural that it gets dismissed before people give it a chance.

Our home is transformed!


I wanted you to know that you've had an impact on my family's life. We have used the term "inventory" and countless "donation boxes"! My wardrobe is down to one dresser, with one drawer half empty, if a toy comes in, another goes out. We can clean up our spaces in 15 minutes -- our home is completely transformed! Thank you for all you do to encourage and help us!



I'm a mama of 4 that was always depressed that she couldn't keep up and thought something was just wrong with me. The concepts and tips Dawn shares have changed my life. The more stuff that goes out of my house the more I can enjoy my home and family. From my heart, THANK YOU!

Can't stop me now!


The workbook and course are phenomenal. I cannot even stop right now! I’m working through my kitchen and it’s just a complete difference. You have no idea how much your principles have blessed our life and given us back time, mental clarity, and joy. We have 3 kids 6 and under and one on the way and I used to wring my head with the mess and I didn’t realize it was just too much inventory to manage.
