About this item

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.

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 ...see moreof the reviewer's review

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...see moreof the reviewer's review
