the life-changing magic of tidying up


The Japanese art of decluttering and organizing is essential for those people interested in simplifying their surroundings and who better to teach us than “Japan’s clutter guru” and “Clean-up queen” Marie Kondo.  The life-changing magic of tidying up is already a bestseller in Japan, Germany and the U.K. with over 1.5 million copies sold.


If you’re a fan of HGTV, you’re going to love this book.  It forces you to evaluate how you actually feel about the things in your home.  You’re encouraged to only keep the things that give you joy.  And, you’re taught how to organize and stay organized as you’re motivated and inspired into a mindset that can last a lifetime.

One of the sections in the book is entitled, “The magic of tidying dramatically transforms your life”.  And indeed, you come to realize it really can feel like magic.  It does transform your life in ways you may not have imagined.  This book makes it all possible in a painless way with an impact you will come to appreciate.

The book itself is without clutter.  Each chapter is well organized in a logical order.  There’s only what you really need, so you’re time isn’t wasted and your life can be changed.


How would you feel if you walked into your home and it was cleaned and organized for you?  How does it feel to wake up in the morning and know your home is clean and tidy?  It takes effort to change your life and learning the art of decluttering will take effort, too.  But, the long-range effect does feel like magic, and is life-changing.
