Y’all remember the tidying up book that swept our country by a storm last fall, don’t you? My kids, their spouses, and I all read that book, and it made a difference in the way we live. Well, author Marie Kondo has written a second book called Spark Joy. It was released just a few weeks ago. My friend Beth gave a copy of it to me for my birthday, and I am thrilled. I am already a somewhat organized person and just soak up organization advice any time I can get it. The title Spark Joy comes from the fact that Marie feels you should only own things things that give you joy. If they don’t “spark joy”, then they are clutter, and you should get rid of them.
Spark Joy goes into details about folding clothes, storage, what to do with family memorabilia, and more. It has been called an “illustrated master class in the art of organizing and tidying up.” I am sure we all have a box/trunk or two of items in our basements that have been handed down from the family. She addresses how to deal with these items so that we aren’t loaded with guilt (and quilts).
If you love a good organizing book, then we recommend this one. Happy reading!
