Simplifying your life just got even simpler. Real Simple Tips is now available on voice-command smart speakers and podcast platforms like Alexa, Spotify, and iHeartRadio. That means getting your daily fix of decluttering tips, holiday hacks, and cooking advice from the experts at Real Simple is as easy as asking Alexa. Here’s how to make Real Simple part of your daily routine.
