<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • In this lovely, easy-to-use illustrated guide to decluttering, the beloved author of <i>The Happiness Project </i>shows us how to take control of our <i>stuff</i>—and, by extension, our lives.</b><br />  <br /> Gretchen Rubin knows firsthand that creating order can make our lives happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative. But for most of us, a rigid, one-size-fits-all solution doesn't work. When we tailor our approach to suit our own particular challenges and habits, we<b> </b>can find inner calm.<br />  <br /> With a sense of fun, and a clear idea of what’s realistic for most people, Rubin suggests dozens of manageable tips and tricks for creating a more serene, orderly environment, including:<br />  <br /> • Never label anything “miscellaneous.”<br /> • Ask yourself, “Do I need more than <i>one</i>?”<br /> • Don’t aim for minimalism.<br /> • Remember: If you can’t retrieve it, you won’t use it.<br /> • Stay current with a child’s interests.<br /> • Beware the urge to “procrasticlear.”<br />  <br /> By getting rid of things we don’t use, don’t need, or don’t love, we free our minds (and our shelves) for what we truly value.

<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>"The perfect housekeeping guide for somebody who is overwhelmed with their mess and can’t figure out how to start."<b> –Lifehacker</b></p><p>“An accessible guide on how to clean for normal people."<b> –Livestrong</b></p><p>"It actually changed my life and my home; I’m serious."<b> –Book Riot</b></p><p>Finally, a housekeeping and organizational system developed for those of us who'd describe our current living situation as a “f*cking mess” that we're desperate to fix. <i>Unf*ck Your Habitat</i> is for anyone who has been left behind by traditional aspirational systems. The ones that ignore single people with full-time jobs; people without kids but living with roommates; and people with mental illnesses or physical limitations. Most organizational books are aimed at traditional homemakers, DIYers, and people who seem to have unimaginable amounts of free time. They assume we all iron our sheets, have linen napkins to match our table runners, and can keep plants alive for longer than a week. Basically, they ignore most of us living here in the real world!</p><p>Interspersed with lists and challenges, this practical, no-nonsense advice relies on a 20/10 system (20 minutes of cleaning followed by a 10-minute break; no marathon cleaning allowed) to help you develop lifelong habits. It motivates you to embrace a new lifestyle in manageable sections so you can actually start applying the tactics as you progress. For everyone stuck between <i>The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up </i>and<i> Adulting</i>, this philosophy is more realistic than aspirational, but the goal is the same: not everyone will have a showcase of a home, but whatever your habitat, you deserve for it to bring you happiness, not stress.</p>

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>

<b>A charming, practical, and unsentimental approach to putting a home in order while reflecting on the tiny joys that make up a long life.</b><BR><BR>In Sweden there is a kind of decluttering called <i>döstädning</i>, <i>dö</i> meaning “death” and <i>städning</i> meaning “cleaning.” This surprising and invigorating process of clearing out unnecessary belongings can be undertaken at any age or life stage but should be done sooner than later, before others have to do it for you. In <i>The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning</i>, artist Margareta Magnusson, with Scandinavian humor and wisdom, instructs readers to embrace minimalism. Her radical and joyous method for putting things in order helps families broach sensitive conversations, and makes the process uplifting rather than overwhelming.<BR> <BR>Margareta suggests which possessions you can easily get rid of (unworn clothes, unwanted presents, more plates than you’d ever use) and which you might want to keep (photographs, love letters, a few of your children’s art projects). Digging into her late husband’s tool shed, and her own secret drawer of vices, Margareta introduces an element of fun to a potentially daunting task. Along the way readers get a glimpse into her life in Sweden, and also become more comfortable with the idea of letting go.
