Description

This best-selling guide to decluttering your home from Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes readers step-by-step through her revolutionary KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing, and storing.

Japanese organizational consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly declutter your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Whereas most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, the KonMari Method's category-by-category, all-at-once prescription leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo's clients have been repeat customers (and she still has a three-month waiting list of new customers!). With detailed guidance for every type of item in the household, this quirky little manual from Japan's newest lifestyle phenomenon will help readers clear their clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home--and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

Very wordy. She could write much more simply and directly, but then her book would only be two pages long. She does have a few good tips.

I discussed this book years ago with a friend of mine when she purchased it as a new release. She told me how it would change everything, but at the time, I didn't really think I needed it. I've always had a bit of a minimalist attitude, make trips to donate unused items and gifts, spend for need (not wants) mostly, and am fairly organized. After watching the author on her most recent Netflix show, however, my interest was piqued. I read this book in one sitting and found her stories of how she became a consultant delightful. Inspired, I immediately went to work, implementing her suggestions, and honestly can't believe the difference. Tidying up has allowed me to re-organize my house into a space that I now actually like. Furthermore, it's re-organized my way of thinking. I would recommend this read to anyone. So many take-aways!

The Writing: It's quite funny, I knowI evaluate books writing quite harshly, yet my own is not up to par as of this moment. For the most part, manga should be critique differently than novels in my opinion. Why? 90% of manga that I have chosen to read has always been good and has always captured my attention. Does it seem bias? I think so since I haven't picked up any that I don't like. I don't think there was a manga that I decided that I was going to read and not finished. I must say, this was not an exception to that. As like most comics, it was captivating, it was intriguing, it was everything a manga is and should be. It may not be to some, but manga I also noticed that I laugh out loud a lot to every manga that I have read. It has some human that I fairly enjoy. Side note: I was extremely excited when I saw this came out! I haven't read manga in so long and was please to stumble upon a mange over 6 years later! The Message: Tidying !!! In the best, light hearted way. It does give me inspiration as the rest of her other books. It makes me think every time I see an untidy corner or spot in my house. The message is clear and concise. The character has flaws that I have that I can relate to. The protagonist also have qualities that I quite admire. The Story: How did an author include a love story in tidying is beyond me! I still love and it want to continue more to see if there is chemistry between them! The Pictures: It's so cute! Who can't just start and want to see more? Read more I mean... :) RATING: 10/10

I read this book in a day! It is amazing. She gives thorough tips for tidying based on her own experiences and those of her clients. She breaks it down in a simple way that doesn't feel completely overwhelming. It's not so much a how-to to keep your house clean, but how to be liberated by letting go of possessions that you don't truly need & being organized. She explains how to let things go, especially items that you're emotionally attached to, and that's something I struggled with. This book is definitely worth reading.

Great little book, right size to carry if you are traveling. Must read if you are trying to "tidy" up your home and minimize your possession.
