There's a new show on Netflix, hosted by the very dainty Marie Kondo.

She basically goes to people's homes and helps them tidy, de-clutter and get their life back again instead of being surrounded by 'stuff' you surround yourself with what you need and love.

I'm a pretty tidy person, but after watching her show, I've been tidying and de-clutter and it does have a positive effect on your well-being. For me anyway. 

The show is called....Tidying up with Marie Kondo.

She's sparking controversy by urging people to get rid of their books.  I really don't have time for this sort of 'lifestyle' fluff.  Either live in disorder or decide for yourself what to keep.  No need to turn to the internet.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

There's nothing to declutter or tidy in my house. It's spot on!

It's what your junk cupboard is for every now and again you empty it and take all the old junk to the tip and then fill the cupboard with new junk.

@majorincident I think the controversy is media hype to be honest. She does have books as part of her tidying, but she asks you to look at them to see if you need them moving forward in your life or if they are just there because they always have been.

I guess it's like any TV show, you either enjoy it or you don't. 

Myself personally, I've enjoyed it.

Could really do with her in hubby’s garage/workshop @vickyjakesmum he won’t part with a thing! 😂 I could never part with my books though, I have some that were bought for me as a child, even my original Wind in the Willows with illustrations by Arthur Rackham, no, that stays put.

🙀I love my books @majorincident I couldn’t bear to be parted from them. Lots of them I’ve had for years, and the odd one from my childhood.  Some I do read and then give to charity. But some are just special.
