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.Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list).  With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

3.0 Book 34/100: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo
I like to live a basically decluttered life, but as someone who is also thrifty and a little sentimental, my downfalls are always cheap books and gifts. I buy very little for myself besides food and the occasional replacement for something essential that has broken, but my shelves and drawers contin...

4.0 The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing - Marie Kondō
Kind of wonderful, kind of wacky. I'm fascinated that she found her own way to fold laundry, and I appreciate that it both takes up less space AND makes it easier to find clothes. On the other hand, she seems to want to put all the clothes in drawers so that she can use closets for other things. She...

3.5 Review: The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo
Initial reaction: 3.5 stars. Some helpful tips but perhaps a bit too general for me in places.Full review: Marie Kondo's "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up" isn't so much just an organizational book as it is a psychological one. It has a methodology, but it doesn't lie with a specific set of ste...

4.0 The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing
A very approachable book. The contents are easy to follow and the advice fairly realistic. I did struggle with the lack of hobbies/others/children/sports that was included. I have to admit I would recommend this organising book to anyone and I have reserved the next book at my local library

3.0 Not quite for me but I think there's some value to it.
Admittedly I was a bit skeptical about the book (interesting idea but I never had much luck with these types of books) I finally decided to check it out. Even like more than a year later the waitlist at my library is like a couple hundred of people, so I figured I'd just get it from somewhere else. ...
