If you’ve lived in or have known someone from Pittsburgh, you’ve invariably heard the expression, “Red up.” Red up is probably short for ready up or to make ready. It is similar to tidy up or tidy. Marie Kondo has made a living helping people to tidy.

In her second book, she gives readers an illustrated step by step guide to tidying up not only material things but lives as well. In her first book, The life-changing Magic of Tidying Up, Kondo shared many personal stories. In this book, Kondo describes it as the nitty-gritty of tidying up and the only book many need to succeed in tidying.

So if you are serious about finding joy in your home, grab the book, assess your belongings and get ready to red up—umm, er ah–tidy up!
