**I received a copy of the book to review. I was not compensated in any other way. My opinions are my own**
I admit, my house isn't as tidy as I'd like to be. I do have piles of stuff in various places.
And my garage?
And that's just PART of the garage.
I got to review a book called The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. (She's even dubbed "the queen of clean.")
Marie Kondo is a Japanese cleaning consultant who knows her stuff. She can teach you ways to organize your life and your home.
The book discusses different ways to keep your home tidy. For instance, Marie suggests using a shoe box to organize things. You don't have to go out and spend all sorts of money on bins.
I found the book helpful, but if I'm being honest, I'll probably still have the piles. I'm working on it though, I promise. My house is just never going to be immaculate.
Oh, and I don't think I'll ever be greeting my house as suggested in the book:
However, maybe if I respected my home more, it wouldn't have so much STUFF in it.
I would recommend this book if you're looking for tips on how to get rid of items and how to better organize your stuff. I did write down some tips I learned (the shoebox one--why do I just toss them? They do make good storage bins) and I do hope to get things in order.
You can buy a copy of The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo on Amazon. It would make a fun Christmas gift. After all, it's the #1 seller in Motivational Self-Help!
