Rachel Hoffman wants to help you get your home in order for the new year.
“One of the problems with housekeeping in general is that people just get so overwhelmed,” she says.
Her new book, “Unf—k your Habitat: You’re better than your mess” offers a manageable system for tidying where you live. And it’s not Marie Kondo 2.0.
“Paring down is great, but if you’re constantly on a quest to get rid of everything, you’re never going to be satisfied with what you have,” says Hoffman. “I like to look at the whole picture of how to live in your home comfortably and happily and maintain that on a regular basis.”
“Everybody has that moment of, ‘I have to do xyz, but I don’t feel like it,’” says the 38-year-old. “So I started pestering people to do that thing — get off the computer for 10 minutes and throw that load of laundry in the dryer.”
Here’s to a clean slate — and a cleaner living space — in 2017.
