The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up - Book Review

I’m going to start by saying that this was one of the most interesting and fun reads I’ve had to date. Given this is a book about tidying up, this may come as a shock for those of you who know me!

It’s still a beautiful piece of tech that I love but in a market saturated with competition… I’m just not sure how it stands up against the rest. There is a ton on offer though, so first let’s look at the pros.
