The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing
by Maria Kondo
Book Review by Marie Delaney
This #1 New York Times best-selling guide to tidying your home is not only a game changer, it’s life changing!
Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo offers readers a step-by-step guide through the KonMari Method enabling an easy way to simplify, organise, and store.
In a nutshell, if an item doesn’t spark joy in your home, it shouldn’t be there – that goes for clothes, trinkets, photos, make up and old copies of bills (but who would want them anyway).
I was hooked from page one, and when I gave it a go at home, I felt lighter, happier and the house was brighter…and we didn’t even have much clutter to begin with! Nevertheless I ended up with 3 car loads of goodies for the charity store, copious bags filled for recycling and a few for the bin man.
Be warned – it’s not for the faint hearted, and once you start you will not want to stop.
I bought the e book – you’ll know why when you have finished it.
