Whenever I find something in my life that excites me, I’m always soooooooo eager to share it with you guys! And don’t worry – Stacy hasn’t fallen down another rabbit hole, lost her mind, or gone cray-cray. I can actually hear that audible sigh of relief from you. Try to control yourself. :-p
In this video, I talk about why I think you should read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Seriously guys, this book has changed our lives. Not just MY life…but Barry’s life (he had to read the book after he saw how much I loved it!) and the kids’ lives too!
Before reading this book, I would have told you that we were minimalists. Dude. I was totally lying to myself. Reading this book has completely changed how I feel about cleaning and clutter. It’s like scales taken off my eyes so I could actually SEE what was in my life.
As I was reading it, I would tell friends about topics in the book. They would scoff, thinking the idea was ludicrous – I’m sure they were rolling their eyes behind their phones. Then they would read the book after seeing my excitement and say “I totally get it now! Before I read the book, what you said didn’t make sense. But YES! This is the exact way to clean your life and home!” So until you read the book, you can’t really understand all the concepts.
You might read reviews or watch videos like mine – but the book is a gold mine that you’ll want to reference again and again.
I’ve read so many books and posts on cleaning and decluttering. NONE of them stuck with me. NONE of them really hit home on the entire issue…until this book.
Now, like I said in the video, it’s a very popular book. I waited for my copy from the library for over a month and I should have just purchased it. Because it’s only $10 and worth every penny. It’s a very popular book right now, so chances are that you will have a long library wait. Just buy it. This is coming from the lady who washes and reuses swim diapers, okay?
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve been watching us go through this whole process. I’ve documented it with photos using the hashtag #clutterclearout. And some of you are using that hashtag and I love it! We’re declutting lives together! If you’re not following along, you can see all past photos on Instagram using the above hashtag.

I plan on doing several posts for this topic – including how we’re doing it, how we’ve sold so much stuff, and what we plan on doing for the future. And I’ll also be throwing out some great ideas for clutter-free gifts.
Are you as excited as me?! Come on! Get happy! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Let’s clear out the clutter and take our lives back! And make room for what’s important in life! So, without further ado, here’s my The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up review.
