Publisher's Summary

A super-practical guide to cleaning up your admin load and freeing up head space.

AUSTRALIAN BUSINESS BOOK AWARDS 2022 FINALIST

You have no idea what's for dinner tonight. You need a gift for that party next week. You still haven't consolidated your super. You're out of contract on your phone and paying who knows what. Those cupboards won't declutter themselves. The kids need a plan for the next school holidays. It's time to get the gutters cleaned. You still haven't made a will.

Sound familiar? Then this is the life admin guide you've been waiting for.

Life admin can't be eliminated but it can be minimised, automated and better shared within families.

This no-nonsense book:

  • outlines a clear system to transform your life admin into managed order
  • helps you share the mental load with others
  • gives you game-changing tools and small practical steps to follow
  • breaks down life admin into Two Minutes Too Easy, Ten Minute Time Killer or Hour of Power tasks
  • shows you the fastest ways to shop around for new providers
  • lets you focus on your major pain points or do a complete life admin makeover

Working parents Mia and Dinah have marshalled their professional expertise in innovation, finance, design thinking and operations to research best practices, trial the tech and craft the most efficient processes to optimise their own life admin. The result? No more overwhelm, way more spare time and thousands of dollars saved.

Now it's your turn.

PRAISE

'This book is life-changing. Mia and Dinah's practical, wise and clever advice will help you to start important conversations with your partner or children around the day-to-day tasks that have shackled women for centuries' Tracey Spicer, author and broadcaster

'My stress levels subsided from the opening page" Helen McCabe founder FUTURE WOMEN, and former editor-in-chief The Australian Women's Weekly

'Life Admin Hacks is for any woman who has ever felt completely squashed by the mental load of modern life. It will teach you how to streamline and conquer all the boring bits so you can get on with the actual fun of living. It's basically Mrs Beeton's Guide to Household Management for modern women, and every home needs a copy' Bron 'Maxabella' Mandile, publisher MUMLYFE

'This book flips the switch on life admin as we know it and the perpetual expectation on women to do it all. This book will streamline your life and support you to share the sometimes-crippling mental load' Tarla Lambert, WOMEN'S AGENDA

'I absolutely love this book and I think it's essential for ambitious and working women. It spells out solutions to life admin rather than just lamenting the problem ... Game changing! Mia and Dinah show you how to take small steps with big impact. They lay out the importance of sharing the load when it comes to admin as well as domestic duties. It breaks down the intersection of parenting, household duties and life admin. So many of us feel frustrated and overwhelmed at the moment. It is a must read for women' Sheree Rubinstein, founder ONE ROOF

A real eye opener

This book is great and I got the most value from the first half of the book and it really helped provide a term to exactly how I've been feeling over the last few years.

I lost interest with the second half of the book when it started talking about finances, Wills & Super. But that's only because I had just finished listening to The Barefoot Investor.

Overall it's a great book.

OK but not life changing

I was a bit disappointed with this one. Started off fine with some good ideas about diary and email management but I lost interest by the time I got to like decluttering which I don’t think is the authors forte. Narrating was slow and a bit monotonous so I had to speed it up. I think if they really focused their content more on what makes their advice unique it could have been better.

Amazing book - really is a step-by-step guide!

This book is full of helpful tips and insights. The only downfall is that it doesn't come with a PDF. I often listen whilst driving or doing housework and can't write things down. They recommend apps and it would have been useful to have a list of those. Checklists would also have been useful. But not a reason to not get it, just have your notes app or a pen and paper handy!

Really good ideas for people with kids

This books is really good for families that don’t have systems already in place. Most of these thing I was already doing but as a person with no kids. Not a bad book but not the book for my position in life!

Not for me

I was really looking forward to reading this one. It was on my wishlist for ages. Unfortunately I didn’t get anything out for it. Most of the hacks I already have in place so there were no new ideas for me. Perhaps for those with older kids or single parents would get more out of it.

Life Changing!!!

Amazing book that leaves no stone unturned. This book has changed my life for the better. Easy to follow stories, anecdotes and real life scenarios - totally relatable. I revisit the chapters I am currently working on and apply the principles or find the apps etc while listening. Really, really love this book.
