<b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling guide to decluttering your home and the inspiration for the hit Netflix show <i>Tidying Up with Marie Kondo</i>.</b><br /><br /> Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?<br /><br /> Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list). <br /><br /> With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

<p><strong>This eBook includes the full text of the book plus an exclusive additional chapter from Chip and Joanna that is not found in the hardcover!</strong></p><p><strong>Are you ready to see your fixer upper?</strong></p><p>These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV’s <em>Fixer Upper</em>. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like—<em>Who are these people?</em><em>What’s the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life?</em> By renovating homes in Waco, Texas, and changing lives in such a winsome and engaging way, Chip and Joanna have become more than just the stars of <em>Fixer Upper</em>, they have become America’s new best friends.</p><p><em>The Magnolia Story</em> is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering their fans a detailed look at their life together. From the very first renovation project they ever tackled together, to the project that nearly cost them everything; from the childhood memories that shaped them, to the twists and turns that led them to the life they share on the farm today.</p><p>They both attended Baylor University in Waco. However, their paths did not cross until Chip checked his car into the local Firestone tire shop where Joanna worked behind the counter. Even back then Chip was a serial entrepreneur who, among other things, ran a lawn care company, sold fireworks, and flipped houses. Soon they were married and living in their first fixer upper. Four children and countless renovations later, Joanna garners the attention of a television producer who notices her work on a blog one day.</p><p>In <em>The Magnolia Story</em> fans will finally get to join the Gaines behind the scenes and discover:</p><ul><li>The time Chip ran to the grocery store and forgot to take their new, sleeping baby</li><li>Joanna’s agonizing decision to close her dream business to focus on raising their children</li><li>When Chip buys a houseboat, sight-unseen, and it turns out to be a leaky wreck</li><li>Joanna’s breakthrough moment of discovering the secret to creating a beautiful home</li><li>Harrowing stories of the financial ups and downs as an entrepreneurial couple</li><li>Memories and photos from Chip and Jo’s wedding</li><li>The significance of the word <em>magnolia</em> and why it permeates everything they do</li><li>The way the couple pays the popularity of <em>Fixer Upper</em> forward, sharing the success with others, and bolstering the city of Waco along the way</li></ul><p>And yet there is still one lingering question for fans of the show: Is Chip really that funny? “Oh yeah,” says Joanna. “He was, and still is, my first fixer upper.”</p>

Somewhere between hunting for gold in Latin America as a geologist and getting married to a new husband, thirty-three-year-old Susan Purvis loses her way.<br /><br />Susan comes to believe that a puppy and working on ski patrol at the last great ski town in Colorado will improve her life. When she learns about avalanches that bury people without warning, she challenges herself: “What if I teach a dog to save lives?” This quest propels her to train the best possible search dog, vowing to never leave anyone behind.<br /><br />With no clue how to care for a houseplant, let alone a dog, she chooses a five-week-old Labrador retriever, Tasha. With the face of a baby bear and the temperament of an NFL linebacker, Tasha constantly tests Susan’s determination to transform her into a rescue dog. Susan and Tasha jockey for alpha position as they pursue certification in avalanche, water, and wilderness recovery. Susan eventually learns to truly communicate with Tasha by seeing the world through her dog’s nose.<br /><br />As the first female team in a male-dominated search-and-rescue community, they face resistance at every turn. They won’t get paid even a bag of kibble for their efforts, yet they launch dozens of missions to rescue the missing or recover the remains of victims of nature and crime.<br /><br />Training with Tasha in the field to find, recover, and rescue the lost became Susan’s passion. But it was also her circumstance—she was in many ways as lost as anyone she ever pulled out of an avalanche or found huddled in the woods. “Lostness” doesn’t only apply to losing the trail. People can get lost in a relationship, a business, or a life. Susan was convinced that only happened to other people, until Tasha and a life in the mountains taught her otherwise.
