The Magic of Tidying
I was curious to read this book as in general I don't have a lot of clutter lying around, but like most people the cupboards can get a little overflowing after a while.
The first task Marie recommends is dumping all your clothes on the floor in a pile, then to pick up each one and ask yourself if this item gives you joy? Even though it sounds a bit strange the act of handling each item forces you to make a decision and I found myself getting quite ruthless as I went along. Can't say it will be quite so easy when it comes to tackling my bookshelves!
The author clearly has an obsession with tidying. She does not deny this. Apparently, she's been this way since she was a wee, strange child and goes into great detail at the beginning of book about her childhood hobby of 'tidying'. This makes the start a bit of a slog. I found some of her beliefs a little quirky and I will not be emptying my bag out each night so my stuff can 'breathe' only to put everything back in come morning!! But if you can overlook some of the odd things she says, you'll more than likely find something here to help you out.
