The last 2 weeks have been filled with crazy amounts of events, so here I am to finally write about reading yet another book for this year. I didn’t have a set goal in mind, but I probably should’ve. Although this one took me the longest to read (maybe because in the middle of it I would begin tidying), but it was also so entertaining.
Spark Joy, by Marie Kondo, was so practical and easy to understand that I didn’t mind it being a lengthier tidying book. It really exposed many of the truths in my own life and household that I was trying to run away from. She’s instilled in me a natural desire to tidy that I just want to help people declutter their lives! One of the ways I have been doing that is through Project Pan on my Instagram.
Do you all recall my mini tidying marathon last year with my closet? I began practicing what joy meant for me, and I’ve gotta tell you, it was hard!
I have done my closet and books now, so I hope that I can schedule in some time this month to do paperwork next (great timing for taxes!).
I wasn’t trying to review the book on here so much as to keep me accountable for adding another book to my 2016 Goodreads list, but I have to say that it might be one of my favorite books this year. It is compact, it is illustrated, it is detailed without being overwhelming, and she does not kid around when she says she is a tidying freak.
Stick around to keep reading with me! I’m on to my next book: Living Well Spending Less by Ruth Soukup.
