the life changing magic of tidying up

what a great and weird little book about tidying. first of all, even if you don't want to tidy up, you should read this book because the writing is hilarious (unintentionally). she anthromorphizes things and is obsessed about tidying. i'm pretty sure she has OCD actually.

I just focused on my closet and I've purged 15 garbage bags of clothes.

now my closet really does bring me joy. when i see how messy Andy's room is, I just go to my closet and feel happy again.

It is rediculously cleansing. I've thrown away trophy shirts from past lovers. My 10 year anniversary at Dell award. Momento t-shirts. What a waste of space. They just stayed in the back of my closet, and wouldn't be seen unless you were moving, or dead.

The rest of the apartment is still a mess, but that was such an effort to do my closet I need a break, but I'm itching to throw more stuff away.
