<b>This #1 <i>New York Times</i> best-selling guide to decluttering your home from Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes readers step-by-step through her revolutionary KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing, and storing.</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.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<b>You don't have to live overwhelmed by stuff--you can get rid of clutter for good!</b><br />While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, many of us simply can't purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff is a home that is difficult to maintain, so where do we begin? Add in paralyzing emotional attachments and constant life challenges, and it can feel almost impossible to make real decluttering progress.<br />In <i>Decluttering at the Speed of Life</i>, decluttering expert and author Dana White identifies the mind-sets and emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter. Then, in her signature humorous approach, she provides workable solutions to break through these struggles and get clutter out--for good!<br />But more than simply offering strategies, Dana dives deep into how to implement them, no matter the reader's clutter level or emotional resistance to decluttering. She helps identify procrasticlutter--the stuff that will get done eventually so it doesn't seem urgent--as well as how to make progress when there's no time to declutter.<br />Sections of the book include<br /><ul><li>Why You Need This Book (You Know Why)</li><li>Your Unique Home</li><li>Decluttering in the Midst of Real Life</li><li>Change Your Mind, Change Your Home</li><li>Breaking Through Your Decluttering Delusions</li><li>Working It Out Room by Room</li><li>Helping Others Declutter</li><li>Real Life Goes On (and On)</li></ul>As long as we're living and breathing, new clutter will appear.

<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.

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>

<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>
