Read: About Decluttering

Ok so the name of this post is short but the book that I am currently reading isn’t: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering And Organizing. Don’t be fooled by the lengthy and explicit title. It is a great source of ways to change habits and become the organized people we dream to be. It really is a great read specially before spring cleaning sessions. Change your mindset about spring cleaning and you might just never have to spring clean ever again!


This best-selling guide to decluttering your home from Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes readers step-by-step through her revolutionary KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing, and storing.

Japanese organizational consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly declutter your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Whereas most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, the KonMari Method’s category-by-category, all-at-once prescription leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have been repeat customers (and she still has a three-month waiting list of new customers!). With detailed guidance for every type of item in the household, this quirky little manual from Japan’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help readers clear their clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home–and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

The read is good so far and very inspiring. You might want to try these steps when you’re done with you family’s closet purge.
