Bestselling author and happiness expert Gretchen Rubin explores one of her key secrets to happiness: that, for most of us, outer order leads to inner calm. A messy desk or a cluttered cupboard might seem like a trivial matter, yet Rubin has found that by simply organising our stuff, we free up space for what we truly value (in our lives and in our homes).
Do I need it? Do I love it? Do I use it?
This new, beautifully packaged volume, with over 150 concrete ideas, approaches the problem of how to best organise our possessions with Gretchen Rubin's characteristic clarity and humour, explaining how best to:
"Make Choices", "Create Order", "Know Yourself - and Others", "Cultivate Helpful Habits" and, of course, "Add Beauty"
Leading on from both Happiness at Home and The Four Tendencies the book is filled with practical insights, clear strategies and sometimes surprising tips, this book will help readers find what works best for them to regain control, and lead happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative lives.
