I've been reading in several magazines this month about
Kondo's purging/organizing and would love to give it a try. I have things I have been holding on to for years and they weigh me down.

I am just starting to declare and organize things. Starting the first, I will have things both at my mom's house and my house. At my house especially I must keep things clean and organized to the point of having someone to check to see if there are repairs and if the house is clean enough. I must meet their expectations or I could if not would be kicked out.

Hey Tymberwolfe! I have my book pulled out and I plan to read the monthly chapter on the second Monday of each month (I have another book club on the first week of the month). I plan to post my "work" towards the monthly chapter here for us to discuss. I hope that works okay with you! This should be a great year!

ELLIEJOSIE sorry for your loss. I can't think of a better way to commemorate your brother than to clean out his room. You are a true inspiration that you could stick with it like that. What a good feeling! Thank you for sharing!

I read Marie Kondo's book last year and have done my entire house, minus the barn and attic. It is too cold now to do those spaces. I finished up 2 rooms just this week, my brothers room (he died last year and I reorganized it exactly one year after his death, mostly to honor him and spend the day in thought about him), and the basement. It changed my thinking about how to do this but I've put my own spin on it and did not rush it.

OMG!!! LMAO!!!! Rolling off my chair!!! What's so funny? When I searched Goodreads.com for the books by Gina Leeds - not realizing how tight you are with the author -- I learned it is actually REGINA Leeds and....... I actually already have the book - though I have not read it yet. Perhaps we can read it together.

Did I mention that I have a lot of piles in my home office emoticon

I have not read your books, but I plan to check them out after this post. I just bought, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up", but Marie Kondo. I just read about it last night in my Mind, Body Green e-mail. I have off from work until Monday so I plan to get rid of these piles in my home office - including the closet!!

Hi! I am from Tacoma, WA and I decided that 2016 is my year to get fit and organized. I have been losing weight on SparkPeople since last Summer (and a member of this team for longer than that) but decided to start two books by Regina Leeds to get my whole house and finances in order in a year. I got out of my fitness routine when my partner had open heart surgery unexpectedly last Fall. All my time was dedicated to helping her recover. Now I am getting back on track eating a Nutritarian diet and exercising again. Has anyone tried these books?
