All your skincare, hair, and makeup will be in one place and ready for your next destination." -Jamie Abarca, Senior Editorial Project Manager

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

Courtesy of Amazon 

"Marie Kondo is an organizing powerhouse. This book got me through a time when my bedroom needed major decluttering. The Konmari Method of tidying up little by little was a great help when I felt overwhelmed by the amount of clutter I had in such a small space—especially my closet. Even after reading it, this book is an adorable little coffee table book. I keep it on display on my desk and browse through it every now and then when I need a refresher." -Aliyah Rodriguez, Associate Editor
