We never thought that a book about moving would be so enjoyable. Just thought thought of moving gives lots of us cold sweats! And yet, Ali Wenzke, who’s been called the Marie Kondo of Moving has authored the extremely helpful, calming, and yes, enjoyable book, The Art of Hapy Moving: How to Declutter, Pack, and Start Over While Maintaining Your Sanity and Finding Happiness . So it’s no surprise that our chat with her was just as fun, interesting and helpful — even if you’re not planning to move any time soon.

Take a listen right now. It’s inspiring!
