Marie Kondo’s book, “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” is a must read if you find yourself surrounded by clutter and mess or if you just want some tips on organization. The book has achieved a cult like following with people wanting to simplify their lives. Although some of her decluttering techniques are a little over the top, I love her phrases and complete enthusiasm toward her subject matter. Some of the highlights:
There are many more tips but mostly there is a lot of dialogue about what clutter does to your soul and how riding the clutter sets your spirit free- something definitely to think about. What do you think? What are your best decluttering tips? I would love to hear from you.
The second article I would like you to check out is my practical guide for organizing your closet:
Before you start, assemble some neutral colored hangers in non slip velvet- like Huggable Hangers and black plastic garbage bags. The thin matching hangers are good because they will give you more space to hang clothes, the clothes are protected from stretching out and the consistency of hangers gives your closet eye appeal. The plastic bags are for things to toss and for things to donate. Return/recycle the metal hangers to your dry cleaners.
