Five Favorites

A new year always brings new hopes of becoming the organized, in-shape, financially stable, calm, wonderful person you have always dreamed of being…or maybe that’s just me! 😉

For this month’s Five Favorites, I thought I would share books that I have read or really want to read that should help you reach your goals of becoming a more organized person.

1. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up  by Marie Kondo

This one has a lot of ideas that may seem weird, but look past the parts where she encourages you to talk to your items and embrace her concept of getting rid of anything that doesn’t bring you joy. Everyone has that one shirt that is kind of meh, but you keep it because you don’t think it’s hurting anything. Get rid of it! Right now! I’ll wait…

2. The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning by Margareta Magnusson

This one was published pretty recently, so I haven’t read it yet, but from what I’ve read about it, the idea is to clean and organize now so that your family doesn’t have to worry about it after your death. The concept is a little morbid, but it is something to consider, especially if you are a bit of a packrat like I am.

3. One Year to an Organized Life by Regina Leeds

I’ve had this book for a few years, and every year, I intend to start it on January 1 and get myself together. Now that I’m putting that info out there for everyone to read, maybe I should actually commit to it!

4. Cluttered Mess to Organized Success Workbook by Cassandra Aarssen

I haven’t read this one yet either, but I’m a sucker for workbooks and checklists. Plus, I’m a bit of a hot mess, so the title of this one speaks to me! 

5. Getting Things Done by David Allen

This book is the pinnacle for becoming an organized and productive citizen. I’ve read it (more than once…shame face…), and it’s full of great ideas. I bet if I actually implemented any of them, I would be unstoppable! Ha!

Did I miss any of your favorites? Let me know which books have helped you get your act together…or which ones have not been worth wasting your time on!
