Generally, April is the first month when Edinans can clean out their homes without worry of doing it in a snowstorm. They can open windows and wash them. There is no one book that helps in home organizing, decorating or cleaning that is right for all. One person’s clutter is another person’s beloved heirloom. The adage of “You Be You” is very important when making decisions about what to have in the place where you live, whether palace or apartment. These 2019 publications are helpful guides for creating happiness in your personal space.
