Book Review: Everyday Tidiness – 365 Ways to a Decluttered Life

As the year 2018 comes to an end and we are welcoming the year 2019, I started to think about what I want to do in 2019. Recently, I came across this book at the National Library. The title is “Everyday Tidiness – 365 Ways to a Decluttered Life“. It is a simple book that provides a tidying tip, a decluttering exercise or inspirational quote for every day of the year.

I am halfway reading the book and one of the thing I have done immediately is to throw away or recycle some things that is taking up space in my home. I have thrown away empty boxes, donated books to the national library book exchange corner which I have not touched for years and cleared away expired foodstuff that is taking up space in my fridge.

In the upcoming 2019, I will constantly remind myself to buy only necessary stuff and not splurge on unnecessary items just because the item is on sale or cheap as these items usually take up space in my home. The same theory can also be applied to stocks. I should not buy stocks on impulse and follow a discipline approach.

I shall make “Living a Decluttered Life” one of my goals in 2019.

When you live surrounded by clutter, it is impossible to have clarity about what you are doing in your life. – Karen Kingston
