The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondō
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“Clutter has only two possible causes: too much effort is required to put things away or it is unclear where things belong.”
A quick and easy and fun read; I really enjoyed this as much for her infectious enthusiasm as for the content. She makes a light, airy, tidy house seem possible even for those of us descended from packrats and borderline hoarders. I love that when it comes to mementos and gifts from important people she points out that their purpose was in the giving and now it's ok to let them go. If her advice to thank your clothes for the good job they did today as you take them off and put them away seems too out there, just think of it as an exercise in mindfulness. Highly recommended.
