Life's most joyful pleasures are often the simplest.

In The Simple Things Antonia Kidman and Sally Collings encourage us to embrace a simpler life - a life that is happier, healthier and less hurried, a life in which we are able to slow down enough to make meaningful connections with family, friends and community, as well as the world around us.

With advice on everything from organising your household, fixing your finances and nurturing your family, to ideas for craft and gardening projects, making your own beauty treatments, and having fun with your kids, The Simple Things will help you to rediscover what is good and important in your life.

          Comments about The Simple Things:

          I thoroughly enjoyed "The Simple Things" and is a book that has come out just before Christmas and is a great book for all to read to make us re-think our life and get back to basics. To stop and think before buying anything and whether it is really necessary.
          An excellent suggestion in the book is when purchasing say a pair of new shoes, throw out an old pair.
