The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo
I am not sure why, but I found this book annoying. I felt Marie was not telling us what we did not already know. Her words of wisdom include keep only the things that bring you joy in life. Other books teach us to clean room by room. The one thing this books does teach you when you do go through your things, go through them category by category not room by room. So, all clothes throughout the entire house should be brought together for sorting. I also found it annoying that when she was growing up, when she was done going through her personal items, she then would get rid of other family member's possessions.
