Happy first day of spring! It’s that time of year when winter starts to fade away and the natural world around us comes out from hibernation. Here in the midwest, the birds have returned in flocks and are singing sweetly, buds are forming on barren trees, and the tippy tops of dandelions and tulip buds are poking up through the ground. With this energy of rebirth and regeneration all around us, many feel invigorated to clear out and clean up our homes. Refreshing our surroundings is a natural reflection of the season. It’s time to spring clean!

I just finished reading the ever popular and current best-seller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. This is essentially a guide on how to whittle down your belongings to only having things you truly love and keep it that way. Kondo recommends a fully immersive purge and sort process which she calls the KonMari Method. Her recommendation to do this all in one go is meant to have drastic results that basically shock you into changing your old cluttery ways for good. While I plan to primarily write my book reviews and post them here in the future, I decided to film this book nook since it’s an appropriate segue into my own home purge I am about to embark on. I talk about the book and my thoughts on Kondo’s process for the bulk of the video and then wrap up by discussing my plan for sharing my home purge process with you.
If you’d like to hear more about my thoughts on this book, check out my video:
I’d love to hear your thoughts if you’ve read this book. I’d also be very interested to hear about your plans for spring cleaning this year and what you hope to accomplish from them. I will be sharing my own spring cleaning/home purge process and checking in with you along the way. Stay tuned if you’re interested!
Happy spring cleaning!
