Book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

 Book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

Author: Marie Kondo

Pages: 224

This is my 78th read for the year

Marie Kondo has always been into tidying.  Even as a child, so worked hard to declutter her life and figure out the best ways to store her belongings.  As she started to perfect her techniques, she shared with others and built a business helping people organize their homes.

This was an interesting book.  I am a generally neat person living with 4 messy people, so I liked some of the suggestions she made and would like to try some of those in my household who tend to hold onto everything.  Vertical storage is defiintely something I want to try with my husband's t-shirt collection.  She had me until she got to books.  Although - I don't buy even a lot of those.  All my books "spark joy" because I only buy them for that reason.  Otherwise I borrow!  

I did hear that she has let go of some of her rigidity since having three kids.  And I am sure a lot of people gave her grief about that.  Honestly - we are all the same until kids come along.  Try as we might, keeping up with organizing sometimes has to take a backseat to family joy.
