Book Recommendation

“The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo
By now you’ve probably heard of the Netflix reality show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Whether you’ve seen it or not, We would like to recommend reading (or listening to) her book (because the book is always better than the movie, right?!) This book is great because it offers a step-by-step guide on how to sort through your household and let go of things that no longer bring you joy.
