Spring cleaning is officially here!
What? You’re not excited? I’ve never been one to adhere to the notation of Spring cleaning. If it’s messy now, clean it now,. Even with this mindset, my home feels overrun by STUFF.
After reading Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, I have a new perspective on how to approach cleaning and decluttering my home and I’m EXCITED! Have you ever asked yourself why can’t I keep my house in order? Then this book is for you.
In Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, the premise is simple with only 2 steps. First, you sort your belongings into 5 categories: clothes, books, papers, miscellaneous, and sentimental items (moments). Second, ask yourself does this spark joy? If yes, keep it. If no, get rid of it.
It’s that simple!
I’ve never been one to adhere to the notation of Spring cleaning. If it’s messy now, clean it now, but even with this mindset, my home feels overrun by STUFF. After reading this book, I have a new perspective on how to approach cleaning and decluttering my home and I’m EXCITED!
This short book (less than 300 pages) packs a powerful punch. Marie Kondo walks you through the process of clearing out your home and in return, your life.
“When you put your home in order, you put your affairs and past in order to. As a result, you can see quite clearly what you need in life and what you don’t.” – Marie Kondo
Ask yourself what do you want out of your life?
I never would have thought that cleaning our your home could affect your life, but I can see it. By cleaning out all the distractions you have in your home, you are able to pursue the life you want to live. Who doesn’t want that?
I took 4 pages of notes while reading this book and I can’t wait to see the transformation in my home and my life. I’m on category 1 (clothes) and have cleared out 3 bags of clothes that do not spark joy in my life and I can already feel the difference in my mindset. I know each day I’m wearing something that sparks joy in my life.
What do you want out of your life and how can you make that happen? Let me know in the comments!
