We all want a better-kept house, don’t we? Of course. But why do we never seem to get there? It is because we have too much stuff – and we are not able to part with the things we should let go. The key is to keep only that which “sparks joy.” Read this book and be inspired to live a more simple life.
Two of my favorite quotes:
One reason so many of us never succeed at tidying is because we have too much stuff. This excess is caused by our ignorance of how much we actually own. When we disperse storage of a particular item throughout the house and tidy one place at a time, we can never grasp the overall volume and therefore can never finish. To escape this negative spiral, tidy by category, not by place.””We should be choosing what we want to keep, not what we want to get rid of.
