My oldest son, Chris, loves books. He has quite a collection on shelves that line one wall in his and Lorna’s bedroom. They recently rearranged and the books looked overwhelming in the room.
There were cute parts, but even they were hard to see unless you were right in front of them…
Chris and Lorna have both been seriously tidying their house and they decided that embrace the KonMarie technique and de-clutter the shelves, without letting go of many books. They took everything off the shelves and rearranged by color.
What was a jumble is now really nice to look at! The clutter is gone, and amazingly enough the books are more engaging. I want to stop and browse where before I just walked on by. It almost makes me wish I had a whole bunch of books to do this with!
