#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The book that sparked a revolution and inspired the hit Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo: the original guide to decluttering your home once and for all.
ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOKS OF THE DECADE—CNN
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), th
is international bestseller will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.MoreLess

Guest 5 months agoIt is very interesting from start to end as I was reading this fantastic book I gained and picked up advice.

Guest 6 months agoLife changing. I did the KonMari method, and I feel so much better emotionally, physically, spiritually. I probably got rid of 8 full garbage bags of stuff. To have the space is worth so much more than the actual objects. Clutter is so chaotic for our lives and minds. Not being able to find stuff, just taking up real estate in your vision. The ease you feel with everything tidy, it truly lifts the spirit.
I would say the method is difficult. It is so easy to be like, I'll keep these socks just so that I have something to wear. But if the items don't give you joy, you really need to let go. There is absolutely nothing I got rid of that I regret not having. I honestly think everyone can benefit from the KonMari method. A must have book for anyone and everyone.
Guest 6 months agoKondo does a good job of explaining her process and why it works, but it’s not really practical for people who don’t have a large chunk of time for a decluttering project. Even so, I could pull some helpful ideas from the process (starting with easier categories, folding your clothes so they can all be seen at once, etc.) even though I have no intention of doing the whole shebang. I tried the folding method and was shocked at how much more I can fit in my drawers, and I don’t have to dig for anything.
Guest 6 months agoMarie Kondo brings some great techniques and strategies in this book, but I felt a lot of it was redundant. I found myself skipping the unnecessary paragraphs of her describing and explaining very obvious concepts, in hopes of getting to the actual point of the chapters.
Guest 6 months agoAs a person who cannot seem to keep anything tidy, I was looking forward to reading this book. And surely I wasn't disappointed.
Marie Kondō has a lot of experience with tidying and all various techniques, tips, and tricks. Her awareness made the book more valuable.
Even though some of the ideas in the book may seem weird, I am happy to try them and know for myself. I am sure I will try to implement the tips in this book myself and also pick it up at least once more to remind myself of the tidying process.
