The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is written by Marie Kondo and it a wonder.
Marie has spent her life tackling the issues of attaining an organized and tidy existence. She has tried every type of trick and method to keeping homes and life tidy. In this book she imparts all of her knowledge on what to do and what not to do from her first hand experiences.
“Keep only those things that speak to your heart”
We took her advice and applied it to our Tupperware drawer, which was a nightmare. We put all the items on the ground and only selected the ones we wanted to keep. Once we had selected what we wanted, we had about 40 items we didn’t need or want and got rid of them. The drawer even closed!
What Marie presents in her book is a deeper dive into why we hold onto items and how best to keep and to let go. What works and what does not. She ask you to stick to her strict guidelines in order to not repeat the patterns.
Tidiness is more than just organizing. It allows you to clear your mind and your life.
