Recently, I noticed that no matter how much I organized and got rid of things, it seemed like my house still wasn’t decluttered enough. Working one space/cupboard/drawer at a time through my house, organizing each one, simply wasn’t working. By the time I got a few areas clean, there were new “stash spots” appearing elsewhere.
Just as I was getting ready to redouble my efforts, and began ruthlessly going through my clothes, weeding out items I hadn’t worn in forever, I heard about this book called, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing”
I literally read straight through the book in two days.
It was the perfect time for me to read this book, and I believe it will save me from further frustration with the never-ending clutter battle.
To be honest, I did not agree with absolutely everything in this book. There were a few things that were unnecessary, and a little “out there”, particularly in the last chapter…but my overall takeaway was immense. I am viewing my stuff and my house from a completely new lens now!
If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend getting a copy of it, or see if your library has it. There was a waiting list for it at my library. Women are excited about this new way of keeping the house tidy all.the.time., and after reading the book, I can totally see why.
I have never been so excited to get rid of stuff, and this will be a huge step towards the minimalist lifestyle I want to achieve!
