Occasionally you come across something so immediately and profoundly impactful on your life that you're compelled to share it with all your friends and family - if not the whole neighborhood (or the internet in this case).
In early January, I experienced just that when I bought a copy of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Japanese author Marie Kondo. It's an insanely popular book on decluttering a.k.a. "tidying" (#1 on the New York Times bestseller list and seemingly always checked out at the library), so you've probably already heard of it by now.
So What's All The Hubbub About?
This book ditches typical organizing advice like "do a little each day" or "focus on one room at a time" and instead teaches you how to tidy your home (not to be confused with cleaning) once and for all by using the KonMari Method.
