My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I requested this book from net galley because I'm currently obsessing with trying to organize my life, be more productive, and most of all, get more from my day and get more things actually done. I thought saving time would work well with those goals, and I'm all for saving time as well.

I was doubly disappointed with this book. First off all, very few of the tips had anything to do with saving time (for example, raising chickens may be cheaper and healthier in the long run, but certainly won't save you time). The book was really just general life tips, but unfortunately, every suggestion is common sense stuff that anyone learns just by being an alert, someone intelligent human being. I'm a horrible cook, for example, but the kitchen tips were laughable and weren't tips at all, just a collection of how to's. I've only been gardening for a couple of years & definitely consider myself a beginner, just learning gardener, yet the gardening/outdoor section was equally laughable.

I'm not sure who this book was trying to target, and I'm sure the author put her heart and soul into this book, but it was a waste of time and effort and every tip is found every day on pinterest without even trying.

(there's also religious tidbits spread throughout the book; not sure what the point of that was)

received a free copy of the book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review
