Financial Sorcery: Magical Strategies to Create Real and Lasting - Jason Miller 2012


Why can’t I keep my house in order?

You can’t tidy if you’ve never learned how

A tidying marathon doesn’t cause rebound

Tidy a little a day and you’ll be tidying forever

Why you should aim for perfection

The moment you start you reset your life

Storage experts are hoarders

Sort by category, not by location

Don’t change the method to suit your personality

Make tidying a special event, not a daily chore

Finish discarding first

Start by discarding, all at once, intensely and completely

Before you start, visualize your destination

Selection criterion: does it spark joy?

One category at a time

Starting with mementos spells certain failure

Don’t let your family see

If you’re mad at your family, your room may be the cause

What you don’t need, your family doesn’t either

Tidying is a dialogue with one’s self

What to do when you can’t throw something away

Tidying by category works like magic

Tidying order



Clothing storage

How to fold

Arranging clothes

Storing socks

Seasonal clothes

Storing books

Unread books

Books to keep

Sorting papers

All about papers

Komono (miscellaneous items)

Common types of komono

Small change

Sentimental items


Astounding stockpiles I have seen

Reduce until you reach the point where something clicks

Follow your intuition and all will be well

Storing your things to make your life shine

Designate a place for each thing

Discard first, store later

Storage: pursue ultimate simplicity

Don’t scatter storage spaces

Forget about “flow planning” and “frequency of use”

Never pile things: vertical storage is the key

No need for commercial storage items

The best way to store bags is in another bag

Empty your bag every day

Items that usurp floor space belong in the closet

Keep things out of the bath and the kitchen sink

Make the top shelf of the bookcase your personal shrine

Decorate your closet with your secret delights

Unpack and de-tag new clothes immediately

Don’t underestimate the “noise” of written information

Appreciate your possessions and gain strong allies

The magic of tidying dramatically transforms your life

Put your house in order and discover what you really want to do

The magic effect of tidying

Gaining confidence in life through the magic of tidying

An attachment to the past or anxiety about the future

Learning that you can do without

Do you greet your house?

Your possessions want to help you

Your living space affects your body

Is it true that tidying increases good fortune?

How to identify what is truly precious

Being surrounded by things that spark joy makes you happy

Your real life begins after putting your house in order
