SPRING IS HERE!! Time to declutter and organize!!! If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it! It is called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up by Marie Kondo and it really really is life-changing. I have always had such a hard time getting rid of things. I also am one of those people that always buys off the clearance rack for the most part. These two things put together make for a lot of clothes and things that add up in the house that aren’t necessities really or ill-fitting/not my favorite garments of clothing. I’m sure there has been a moment where you were out shopping and saw something that was SUCH a good deal, and it looked cute on the hanger so you brought it home and wore it once. Yes…that is my life people!!!!! What I have found is that clutter leads to anxiety! The Kon-Marie (as many people are now calling this) method is basically about only keeping things around that “spark joy”. She gives you a strategy on how to go through all of your belongings and only keep what is necessary and those things that make you happy. After reading this, I legitimately donated probably half of my clothes/belongings. I feel SO much better because now when I look in my closets, they contain mainly things that I love, so it makes the decision making process in the morning much easier…thus LESS anxiety!!!! This book is a quick read…and FYI, there are some parts that are a little weird that I kind of breezed over, like thanking your clothes and that kind of thing (who has time for that!), but I really think this can change your whole mindset if you take the time to read it and follow her directions. I even love how she recommends folding your clothes! You can find this book here.
