Today on Marie
Marie welcomes her friend, TV and radio host Leeza Gibbons, to discuss her latest New York Times best-selling book, "Take 2: Your Guide to Creating Happy Endings and New Beginnings." Leeza writes about reclaiming our lives when faced with challenges or simply being stuck in the status quo. Her own experiences of losing her mother, getting a divorce, and leaving a job all sent her on a path to find her own place in life. Because of her mother's suffering with Alzheimer's, she's also helping family caregivers through her inspiring foundation, Leeza’s Place.
Next, Leeza shows off her "Wishes and Dreams" collection of scrapbooking items, a creative way to preserve memories for both herself and her family and friends.

Next, organization expert Trish Suhr shows you how to clear your closet of clutter and reclaim your own style! Trish recommends "keep," "sell," and "donate" bins before you get started, and always having a "clutter buddy" to put you in the mindset to clean things out. Trish also suggests organizing your closet in color order, so it's more like shopping at a store! Her final tip: narrow velvet lined hangers take up far less space than more "glamorous" wooden hangers.
