“HOME COMFORTS: THE ART AND SCIENCE OF KEEPING HOUSE” BY CHERYL MENDELSON
The author offers an education on the nitty-gritty housekeeping and everything you want to know about maintaining and cleaning your living space to make it truly efficient and comfortable is contained within.
“HOW TO MANAGE YOUR HOME WITHOUT LOSING YOUR MIND: DEALING WITH YOUR HOUSE’S DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS” BY DANA K. WHITE

“THE LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC OF TIDYING UP: THE JAPANESE ART OF DECLUTTERING AND ORGANIZING,” BY MARIE KONDO
Her book is far more than simply detailing a method for cleaning up, but instead focuses on organizing and cleaning as a skill set that can be learned–and mastered. After all, as Kondo proclaims, “Life truly begins only after you have put your house in order.”
Keeping your home clean and sanitary protects your security deposit and your health, and ensuring that your home is well-curated and organized can boost your mental health and overall enjoyment while indoors.
