The Life Changing Magic of Tidying
The Life Changing Magic of Tidying

On the recommendation of a friend, I read this book.  It is a bit funny because I read it after I’d chucked away half my stuff and hd a big tidy up.

There is a lot of sense in it.  Basically:

  • you need to throw away a load of stuff before you even start tidying;
  • you need to do one big tidy – doing a little bit at a time won’t work;
  • you need less stuff; and
  • you should only have things that make you feel good about yourself.

This is all fair enough.  My Mum said that her cheese grater doesn’t “bring her joy” but it is quite useful for grating cheese.  However, I think this is nit picking.

My only real criticism is that she doesn’t talk about what to do with all the stuff she recommends you chuck out.  It feel heart breaking to send anything that is not totally trashed to landfill – I am still trying to find a way of getting rid of a load of books.

  1. ohmygodihavetobuyit! 😆 When we had our big clearout my daughter held a second hand book sale with her/my friends and did pretty well! I took the rest of our books to the book charity shop. Then I had to resist buying a load to replace them!
