Do you know what my current biggest fantasy is? A house that isn’t falling down with piles of crap on every available surface. I dream big.
Do you know what is going to help me achieve this? The Life Changing Magic of Tidying is. I am signed up, I am ready to believe, this is going to work.
Marie Kondo’s book has sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide with its promise to
Transform your home into a permanently tidy, clutter free space and be amazed at how your whole life changes.
Sold? Yeah, me too.
Here is the blurb on the back:
Japan’s expert declutterer and professional cleaner Marie Kondo will help you organise your rooms once and for all with her simple KonMari Method. The key to successful tidying is tackling your home in the correct order, keeping only what you really love and doing it all at once. This incredibly easy method will not just transform your space, it will change you too. You will feel more confident, become more successful and be motivated to create the life you want.
These are some pretty big promises being made by Marie but I am going with it, the magic in the title is helping, maybe there is some subliminal witchcraft amidst these pages.
The book is in sections titled:
- Why Cant I Keep My House In Order?
- Discard First
- How To Tidy By Category
- Storing Your Things For An Exciting Life
- The Magic of Tidying dramatically Transforms Your Life.
Perhaps its most ambitious promise is that “if you adopt this strategy, you’ll never revert to clutter again” THESE ARE THE MAGIC WORDS.
I feel this is the book I have been waiting for for the last ten years. I am committing 100%. Who is with me? Clutter free August? I am going to blog as I go along and if anyone else is planning on reading this book and wants to join in, please do. We can have smug perfect homes and SMUG PERFECT LIVES together.
I am making no apologies about how excited I am, I am 37 this month, this is the type of shit that excites me.
The book is available in most book shops, I had a google or you can buy it on Amazon.
BRING MY NEW LIFE ON.
Would love if others followed the book with me this month, you can comment below or on the Facebook page or on your own blog, if you’re a blogger. Misery loves company and “dramatically transformed lives” love company too!
