The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up

Jan 8, 2019

Want to learn how to get organized and how to declutter you home or office? Try reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanase Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Japanese author, Marie Kondo. This book was published this book in 2015. It was popular in the United States and now has a show on Netflix. Many people are talking about the new TV series. 

The Number One Takeaway
Ask yourself: Does this bring me joy? 

As you declutter and get organized, look at all of your possessions. Hold each one and look at it. Answer the question: Does this bring me joy? If the answer is yes, you keep it. If not, then get rid of it. 

Of course, things like tax returns and important documents probably don't bring you joy. These things are good to store somewhere, but don't need to be soemthing you see everyday. 

What do you think? Would this strategy work for you? Have you read the book?
