A Little Help From a Friend

The idea of cleaning, and purging our house seems like such a huge task!  How in the world am I going to take on this project and also continue all my other necessary daily jobs?  I have truly felt overwhelmed with the idea of it.  Our home is almost 2100 square feet- five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a unfinished basement chock full of stuff!  Where do I even start?

Hope in book form!
Well luckily I have a neighbor that has been in my shoes before.  She recommended a book for me to read and even lent me her own copy.  It is not a huge text book on cleaning and organization, just a little unassuming book.  Interestingly enough, other people have mentioned this same book to me but I basically blew them off thinking, "I don't have time to read!"    But let me tell you, after my neighbors recommendation - she actually made sure I did not leave her house one day without taking it - I decided well it can't hurt.  So I have taken the plunge and made the time to read this little book.  What book is this, you might be asking yourself?  Well it is, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" by Marie Kondo.  I hope as the title implies that it really will change my life.  Maybe it will also help the whole family begin to love our house again.


  1. That sounds like a great book. I might have to find myself a copy. I can't wait to hear more of your progress. Once you get some momentum built up, it will be easier.

    1. Thanks so much for your continued support! I also checked out the book you suggested and plan on reading that one too. I rally am in a rut and am hoping these authors can help to get me on the right track.

    2. I meant really not rally! Ugg I need to work on my proof reading before I post things!
