It’s been a while since I’ve hosted a giveaway – too long, in fact. Today, I want to change that by giving away something that I so badly want to read myself: two copies of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo.
I’ve never given away a book I haven’t first read myself (that’s what happens when you can’t shop and are still only #11 on your library’s hold list), but this best-selling guide to decluttering your home has received so much praise, I don’t think it will disappoint.
The book takes readers step-by-step through Kondo’s method for simplifying, organizing and storing household belongings. From what I know about it, I can say that I wholeheartedly agree with one of her methods: to “tidy up” (and declutter) once, so you never have to do it again.
Kondo also explains how to determine which items in your house “spark joy”, so you can remove anything that doesn’t. I thought about that earlier this week, as I did one final declutter and removed another 5% of my belongings. I’m now living with just 35% of what I once owned, and am so much happier for it.
I guess, in a way, it’s too late for me to read this, since I’ve already done all I can do here… but I get so many emails asking how I managed to get rid of so much stuff that I thought this would be the perfect giveaway to help two of you get started with your spring cleaning (and decluttering!).
