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?
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.
