Books on Cleaning, Organizing and Decluttering Your Home
If you own bunches and bunches of stuff, yet your home doesn’t look like you want it to, this book holds the keys for sorting the situation out. Decluttering — the process of narrowing down the belongings you own and getting rid of the ones you don’t need — may just be the key to creating a home that you would truly adore.
This is absolutely the best book we’ve ever found on the topic of decluttering.
This book is NOT a cleaning manual — decluttering is the one and only focus of the book. It’s also not a decorating manual — but if you are having a hard time decorating your home because too many distractions and too much junk are getting in the way, this book is probably going to help you lay the foundations for decorating your home just the way you want it.
Where to Buy Decluttering at the Speed of Life:
If a cleaning manual is what you need, I highly recommend The Modern Organic Home.
