Professional organizer Issa Guico Reyes, known for her work in organizing the homes of Kathryn Bernardo, Neri Miranda, Rica Peralejo, and Cheska Kramer, bares her method in cleaning and decluttering spaces in Neat Obsessions, the latest bestseller published by ABS-CBN Books.
The KonMari consultant-in-training penned her journey towards fulfilling a neat and organized home in a book that puts premium on the Pinoy way of life.
“While we can always refer to foreign books and manuals, it is always best if we have a reference that speaks the very same challenges that we have, and offers solutions that fit our background, culture, and lifestyle,” she said.
Neat Obsessions allows readers to establish a connection and find happiness in their own spaces—big or small—by encouraging them to develop a system to put everything in a proper place.
The author disclosed “The Homeward Technique,” her guide to organizing and achieving efficiency in homemaking done in three steps: sorting, detaching, rehoming.
“The goal is for you to reclaim your space, which was once lost in a sea of clutter, and find a semblance of order in a life lost to chaos and disarray,” shared Reyes.
The new book also tackles the importance of health and hygiene in cleaning, suggests ways to declutter spaces with the crafty use of materials like shelving racks and floating shelves, and features tips to counter challenges in letting go of stuff with sentimental value.
Since its launch early September, the book has been sold out and is now preparing for its second printing.
Neat Obsessions is available in National Book Store branches, www.nationalbookstore.com, and at the official NBS store on Lazada and Shopee for P350.
