One of the books on my shelf is a fun, inspiring kind of read. At least, it is if you love taking care of your house. I read lots of books about decorating and housekeeping, and this is one of my favorites. (Along with Practically Posh, The Shabby Chic Home, and Domino anyways.)
I’ve read the Real Simple magazine for years, and I have to admit that I have a hard time throwing away old issues. I have to at least flip through it and tear out some great idea to use later.
Apparently it hasn’t helped me learn how to throw things away.
But both the magazine and this book have taught me a lot of the following things:
How to store and organize photos and greeting cards. These are a major clutter source for me.
Creative gift wrap ideas
New uses for old things
How to clean a cheese grater and other frustrating household tasks
Room by room decorating
Cleaning tips and ideas
and how to set up a workspace
If that doesn’t cover it all, I don’t know what does! If you are interested in this book, you can find it here.
