The Everyday Spruce - The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Marie Kondo

The Everyday Spruce Recommended Reading

I remember way back at the end of last Summer, when Heather & I first starting discussing our ideas that would become The Everyday Spruce project…Heather mentioned at the time that it reminded her a little of a book she had loved called ‘The Happiness Project’…

I hadn’t read books for way too long until I recently remembered I could download to my Kindle, which can then be read on the go, on both my iPhone & iPad. I’ve been catching up & collecting reads for an upcoming trip (eeeep!) ever since.

I knew of some of the books in Heathers latest post, but it’s always great to actually get a few thoughts & I something I love about H is her total honesty!
I’d already started Marie Kondo’s ‘The Life Changing Magic of Tidying’ – Like Heather, I’ve managed to apply some of her theory so far, but lots more to do!
‘The Year of Living Danishly’ is on my list to read, and, thanks to Heather’s inspiration, I’ve added a few more now, including ‘The Happiness Project’, ‘Happier at Home’, ‘Better Than Before’ (all by Gretchen Ruben), and ‘Stuffocation’ by James Wallman (so far I’ve skimmed this but enjoyed the theory of it). You can find my #TheEverydaySpruce reading list collection so far here.

Have you read any of these, or do you have any recommendations? I’d love to hear your thoughts x

    I’ve really been enjoying your project, and seeing how it is developing. Such a simple idea really, but the potential to make such a difference. Those books sound really interesting reading, I’m on the hunt for a few more non-fiction titles. Thanks for sharing these.
