I love the positive way she approaches tidying - it is very refreshing and inspiring and appeals to my desire for everything to look beautiful. I think it is a dream for most housewives for their home to be beautiful and clean - with lovely table linens etc. I agree with her, it makes you feel so much better to look around at pretty things or things that bring you joy. She goes to lengths of even removing labels from her laundry detergent bottles or covering with a big bow so it looks nice. Thought it was an interesting thought about the words too - if you have too many books and words in a room it is like they are constantly speaking and creating a noise in the room. That people that remove them or cover them up, find the room is more peaceful after.
On the whole I would recommend this book. I really enjoyed it and found it really inspiring and energizing. Marie is so passionate about this and it passes on to her readers.
