It’s a new year, and it’s finally time to get rid of all the clutter in our lives and to start fresh. Your physical world is just as important as your digital one, so to kick off your year of organization, we’ve teamed up with Audible to offer you the New York Times bestseller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo audiobook for free.

Marie Kondo’s no-nonsense approach to ending the clutter of your home comes from her years as a natural home organizer. She recognizes our need to hang on to keepsakes and memorabilia, the emotional desire to keep clothing and other items that we don’t even like, and the guilt we feel discarding gifts from others. She has the ability to help us reframe such thoughts to help us move forward in our organization goals. And yes, most of it is highly personal. Ms. Kondo encourages us to surround ourselves with things that bring us joy. She teaches us to treat objects as if they had feelings and to consider the feelings of friends and family as we de-clutter our lives.


Ms. Kondo points out the benefits of a gentle, yet strict approach to changing your life through tidying up include stress reduction, improved concentration, and clears your senses. She also says that once her clients go through her system to reduce clutter, they never go back.

Now, through January 31, 2017, residents of the US and Canada can get this book free from Audible and Evernote. There’s no purchase necessary, and you don’t have to be an Audible subscriber. If you don’t have an Audible account, you’ll be asked to create one, but you won’t be asked to subscribe, and you won’t need to enter a credit card number. Just follow this link and download the audio book, and begin your more organized 2017.
