Hot Title Alert: The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place

Do you absolutely hate cleaning and organizing? Don’t worry, so do author Jennifer McCartney and the fans of her new book, The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place. McCartney’s New York Times bestselling anti-self-help guide praises the cluttered and bashes the overly-organized. What’s the point, really? When there’s so much joy to be found in the mess.

This perfectly purse-sized guide has been getting major praise from sites like Elle Decor  and Publisher’s Weekly. McCartney even wrote a piece for Refinery29  about how difficult it is to declutter your apartment. To quote her book, “HGTV recommends scheduling an hour out of the week to declutter your closet. What the living f*ck. I love you, 5-hour HGTV marathons, but don’t tell me what to do.” She poignantly and hilariously covers how difficult and pointless it is to stay organized. The book also includes cute illustrations along with McCartney’s upfront advice.

Check out how Elle Decor turned McCartney’s hilariously sarcastic commentary into motivational posters:

I’m tempted to print this out and hang it on my wall, just as a daily reminder.

“Being in a messy environment means you’re more f*cking interesting.”

Amen, Jennifer.
