Getting the decluttering bug

This week I purchased the ebook “Spark Joy: An Illustrated Guide to the Japanese Art of Tidying” by Marie Kondo. Its the second book by Marie about decluttering your home. I have not read the first book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying: The Japanese Art” but everything I have read, the second book covers a lot of whats in the first but in more depth which is why I bypassed the first and went straight in and bought the Spark Joy. I still have not read it but Denise is in the process of reading it and is already getting tin the mood to get rid of loads of stuff. Even today she has blitzed the bathroom. It looks much tidier. Its a start. Small steps etc.
Every single room in our small house, every single drawer, and every single cupboard is crammed with stuff. The thing about new build houses is that the do not have many cupboards so storage is a premium we don’t have, hence why we have to ram stuff in wherever we can find.
It’s going to be a long tedious journey to get rid of so much stuff but we are excited about seeing our home clutter free.
