With the holidays coming up around the corner, now is a good time to take stock of what we want to bring into the new year. Tidying up your surroundings is a great way to de-clutter your life as well as clear your mind. As we all know, this can be a daunting task sometimes and many of us can be masters of procrastination.
Thankfully, Japanese decluttering guru Marie "KonMari" Kondo is here to help us all transform cluttered spaces into serene and inspiring sanctuaries. Marie is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and was named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2015. Her acclaimed method of tidying up is called the KonMari Method and encourages people to only keep personal items that spark joy.
Marie's follow-up book is called "Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up" and is an illustrated guide with step-by-step folding illustrations for everything from shirts to socks. It is a great companion to her first book and motivation for us all to tidy up our lives and bring more joy into 2017!
