Spark of Joy

My friend Melissa recently recommended a book to me – The Life Changing Magic of Tidying.  I bought a copy and powered through the pages and have become completely inspired to de-clutter our home!


A comprehensive, illustrated manual on how to de-clutter and organize specific items throughout the house, from kitchen and bathroom items to work-related papers and hobby collections. User-friendly line drawings illustrate Kondo’s patented folding method as it applies to shirts, pants, socks, and jackets, as well as images of properly organized drawers, closets, and cabinets. Kondo also add in-depth advice on moving, packing, and dealing with necessary objects that may not spark joy—answering all the questions she’s gotten since her first book. This manual is perfect for anyone who wants a home—and life—that sparks joy.

Over the years we have accumulated so many toys, clothes and other items and as a result, I feel quite overwhelmed with all the ‘stuff’ in our home.  My goal for 2016 is to have a good clean out and live the simple, minimal life and enjoy items that only ‘spark joy’!
