I’ve assembled a list of resources to help COVERED listeners prepare for my discussion with fellow podcaster Ann Kingman about Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Below, you’ll find videos and articles, including interviews with the author, as well as how others have applied her techniques to their lives.

And since this is a book club discussion, I’ve dropped in some links to the book itself in case you wanted to read up before the episode drops.

I hope these links and the forthcoming episode bring you joy!
